    Is there an app that works on Slot-1 NDS cards that can backup save games from commercial GBA carts?

    I am struggling with dial up right now so you will have to do some searching for links but eepinator can back up SRAM saves (not EEPROM or flash though).

    If you have a DLDI capable GBA slot cart that can run GBA code there is savsender by Chism.

    I tried eepinator and the save dumper in GBALdr. Both don't work. Using GBALdr gives me a 512 Kilobyte file every time, for every game using SRAM and Flash, none of them seem to work.
    I'm testing eepinator to dump the SRAM from Pinobee, dumping the SRAM gives me a 64 kilobyte file filled with 00000000 (hex), the .sav file created using a ROM on a EZFlash 3-in-1 is a 128 kilobyte file.
    I have a EZFlash 3-in-1, but no other slot-2 card. Since there is no DLDI for the 3-in-1, that option is gone. [​IMG]

    I don't think any GBA game used 512 kilobyte saves. 128 kilobyte is one of the newer types, and no flash cart I'm aware supports normal in-game saving or QPC with that kind on commercial GBA ROMs.

    64 kilobyte is very common. Most emulators and flash carts consider it the default, or only, natively supported size.

    I thought eepinator was for ripping DS game saves.
