    I'm sorry, I don't know where else to ask this >_> I need one because I can't get past a certain part in a game, but another emulator runs it perfectly, but not full speed. And different save format of course.

    And of course I'd like one that could convert to a save format that I could use with the DS (Using the EZFlash 3-in-1) too.

    Which formats do you want to convert from/to? If they are .sav files, what size are they in KB? Which emulators? What game?

    I need to convert from No$GBA (.sav I believe) to Virtual Boy (.sa1) and back (For when I get a 3-in-1).

    Also it's 8 kb and it's DBZ: Buu's Fury.

    I'm not really familiar with no$gba, but I've heard that it has an option to choose which type of save file it uses. This was in reference to DS saves, but it may apply to GBA saves as well. The format you want is just the raw save data, without compression or a header of any sort (that's what vba uses). When you've found the relevant option, look for a way to export a save (possibly called a battery file).

    Modify the no$gba.ini file to change the following line:
    Code:
    SAV/SNA File Format == Compressed
    (may also say Uncompressed) to the following:
    Code:
    SAV/SNA File Format == RAW
    If memory serves, this should tell it to save in raw format. Open the game, save as normal, and exit. Your save file appears in the "BATTERY" folder of wherever you've installed no$gba.

    I can't get it to save the file at all, and isn't that just NDS games? I already have that site, but thanks anyway.

    Sorry to bump an old post n such, but when saving games for No$GBA if i remember right you have to save from in game for it to work right. then "After" you exit the program all the way it will create a .SAV file in the "Battery" folder No$GBA made. if you use the Savestates (e.g. load/write snapshots..) they have a tendency to corrupt the .SAV file. hope I helped, unless you already found that out lol.
