    I can't get the GBA emulator to read the saves I had from my acekard. On there they were .gba.sav, but on the SCDSTWO emulator, it saves as .sav. So, I renamed them. They don't read or are not recognized.

    I put the .sav files in \NDSGBA\gamerts

    Do the ROMs have to be in a specific spot too for them to read? Or what stupid thing am I missing?

    The games are Megaman battlenetwork 3 and Pokemon sapphire

    I know pokemon has to be patched, I think SRAM.

    You placed the saves into the folder where the emu saves it's RTS files. I don't know exactly where saves go (my DS2 hasn't arrived yet), but they definitely don't go there.

    Don't put them in /gamerts, that's for RealTimeSave files, whereas yours are regular save files and should be put in a different folder (I don't know which one specifically since I don't own a DS2).

    Damn you, Gordinio! [​IMG]

    You will have to edit all your AKAIO saves with Hex Editer and remove the first 16bit header.

    Um just found this it might make it easier for you.
    Download this http://filetrip.net/f9583-AKAIO-GBA-Save-C...rter-12910.html
    And convert your AKAIO save to raw.

    Thanks! After running the saves through that, they work in the DSTWO emulator!
