    I am going through and replaying Minish Cap. I have extracted my save from my system using Saviine and wanted to convert it so that it may be used on an emulator on my PC while I'm not at home. The files that were dumped came in .bin extensions and VBA uses .sav. Is there anyway to convert it?

    I'm looking for help on this too. I dumped my Wii U copy of Medabots GBA and got 2 .bin files in the save folder using DDD Dumper.

    I'm trying to convert it to use with the 3DS GBA VC Injects though. Anyone had success with either of conversions?

    What are the file sizes of the bin files?

    Open them in a hex editor and compare them with a save file from vba

    I tried doing this but with the hex editor I used I wasn't finding the hexadecimal beginning and end he mentioned so I guess it's game specific?
