    I recently set up Dolphin on my computer, and quickly stumbled upon a problem. I had some ISOs from other regions than my save files on my gamecube memory card, thus I couldn't easily continue my old GC save games. I found an old app by PsyDonia called GCConvert that I managed to get working in the end, but it was a bit troublesome on my Windows 10-machine because of old DLLs. So I decided to do some research and try rewriting it. I have no idea if there was any wish for this in the first place, but there you go. :)

    The app can be found on GitHub as well as attached to this post.

    What the app does:
    Takes your .gci save file (downloaded from Wii or other devices) from any region and converts it to the region of your preference.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    Thanks! It is possible to upgrade it into a state it can manage the different formats used by Nintendont, Dios mios, dolphin, saves ripped using a wii manager
    Sometimes they come in Raw, or a folder with the files, container of while card, I seen at least 3 types
    I Had to use the dolphin and other tools to convert the different files

    When I saw the title save Converter I thought it was a program to fix this
