    Is there a way to extract GC save files and convert them so that they work with the new cMios because I updated to Xi and now none of saves work so is there a way or do I have to do all my work all over again

    yes I know of those programs I think I have one on my SD but I need a way to "convert" them so that the new cMIOS will read them instead of making a new one

    I got GCCM to get the saves off. However to "convert" them you have to hex edit them. If you don't know how to do that I'd suggest using Theta for the old saves and use Xi for new saves and 2 disc games. There's a tutorial around ehre somewhere that tells you how to hex edit them.

    Ok so would i have to keep switching between the cMIOS or can I keep one and use both loaders?

    Edit: My quote got messed up so I did it manualy
