    Is there a way to convert GBA gamesaves? I have a save of Pokemon Emerald on my M3DS Real, and I want to use it with No$GBA, or any GBA emulator really.

    It should be compatible without even converting it.

    Well I tried, with No$GBA and it doesn't load the save when launching, comes up saying the save file is corrupt.

    do the save and the rom match names? is the save type set in the options of No$gba?

    I believe you have to set the save type. otherwise it makes a new save with a larger/smaller filetype in other words a different save.

    Also, you don't need to change save types with Visualboy. try that if you can't get no$ working.

    Okay I tried it again and although it now works, I cannot save past where I last saved on my M3, it'll say it's corrupted and a previous save will be loaded, which is where it was when I put it on my computer.

    I'll have a look at Visualboy.

    EDIT : Okay, it worked in Visualboy and I managed to get the cheats done that I wanted, but now the save won't work back in my M3.
