    Hi o/ !
    A few weeks ago i've decided to make a huge clean in my huge save collection (will not say how, it's horrible) in my 4 differents PC in order to have something more clean. So i'm using my OneDrive account in order to link all my saves and PC. This way i'm using one save for a game and for every PC.

    I'm really fan of this way but i've a problem with Android. I've downloaded the application in order to do something with GBA Emulators but no way to have them working with OneDrive.

    I know there's solution by using another app and creating a special folder, but I really would like to avoid this because i don"t want to use an 'unknown' application with my OneDrive.

    Any emulator that could support OneDrive ? Or any tip to use it ? I'm a huge user of GameBoid that i'm using since i got my Samsung Galaxy S years ago.

    Thank you o/

    I saw on google play that the John GBA Lite - GBA Emulator has the Dropbox support (requires John DataSync) but I can't find nothing with OneDrive

    Hey o/ !
    Thanks for your answer, I already knew about John Emulators (using a GB one for a hack for Red with SGB colors) but the tier apps for synch with a cloud service / the Dropbox Or OneDrive is something I absolutly want to avoid sadly T_T

    Shoud check for Windows Phone for playing... I can find them for cheap OTL

    I'm bumping this because of new things :

    I really want to do a steup for my emulation with One Drive. I'm playing a lot my Pokemon Games, and I own 3 PC and 3 Android Devices. So my goal was to be able to play my games on any device, without having to upload / move / download saves between each device. For the moment, my setup PC / One Drive is perfect. I'm using that for a few years, and it's perfect. My saves can be load on any device, can save, etc, no messing up with that.

    But I'd like to play with my game everywhere, something I can't with my PCs. So I wanted to setup an Android / One Drive like i've done with my PC / One Drive. But now i've a lot of issues. The One Drive apps doesn't do any synchronisation with folders. The app just shows what you have in your drive, and you can manage them OR download the files to a folder. But this would be still too messy. I'd have to download the save, play with it and reupload it. Not fun. I'd like an auto-synchronisation from a folder.

    There's an application like that : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.onesyncv2 that does what I want. But it's not something official and i want to be SURE of something (because of security, the fact i've to link my account, and the fact that my saves have precious data)

    Anybody tried that ? Or with a good way ?

    Bonus question : Does Drastic allows to select the folder where to save .dsv files ? Planning to buy it but would like to be sure of this before.

    Thanks o/

    Hope I'm not posting too late here.

    Personally, I just use FolderSync. It works with various cloud hosting services, including MEGA and OneDrive. It's great, too; I have MEGASync installed on my computer, which syncs files to my MEGA Account, so I can instantly continue playing on my PC what I started on my phone, and vice versa. I use it mainly for my GBA Games, and it's handy to transfer your Pokemon from one save to another on your PC, then continue playing on your phone with you changes automatically intact.

    The MyBoy! emulator also has a built-in save sync with Google Drive, but this feature is omitted from the free version.
