    I have a N64 transfer pak, an N64-USB adapter, an N64 controller, and a Pokemon Red version. Can I use nothing more than what I have, and a program, to extract the .sav file? I really don't want to lose all my old pokemon. Is this possible?

    I'm not very familiar with this line of stuff, but to my knowledge, the Adaptoid was the only USB adapter that did more than just send controller data through. I know it could do the rumble pack, but I don't know about accessing save files. Other USB adapters probably simply don't have the ability to transmit the information through the cable. Unfortunately the Adaptoids are rare and very expensive due to scarcity.

    EDIT: Looks like at least one person got it to work using an Adaptoid - http://forums.emulator-zone.com/showthread.php?t=8855

    Dan, don't mean to sound harsh, but I do not think this is the right way to go about it.


    You have two real options:
    You can try to buy archaic hardware and have a slim chance of recovering your save, OR, you can try this method

    You can follow these instructions, or if you have a second Gameboy and a link cable (and if you are comfortable with flashing a commercial ROM to the EMS cartridge), you can simply trade your Pokemon over to the flash cart and back it up.

    If you need any help, PM me :)
