    Hello!

    I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get one of the .sav files from this link

    http://filetrip.net/f957-The-Legend-Of-Zel...P-4-Swords.html

    To be recognized with my LTTP. I'm loading it from an EZV 3in1 through my acekard 2.1

    I'm familiar with patching roms for different save types with GBATA, but I'm really in a pickle with this.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    Zelda:LTTP uses EEPROM for save type. You need to use the VB script from GBA backup tool to correct the save file before you can use it on the 3in1.

    The 3in1 doesn't support raw EEPROM save format like VBA does.

    Copy your original zelda game. Rename each game to match a game save. Run game using AKAIO.

    PS: do whatever the above poster says to do.

    Okay, so after I convert the sav, do I need to rename it to

    0776 - Legend of Zelda, The - A Link to the Past & Four Swords (U).gba.sav

    And should I leave my rom as it is or patch with GBATA?

    AKAIO does it's own patching, you don't need GBATA to patch the game.
