    i just tried it a week ago without any modification to the ezv saves using the most recent ez update and it worked with no problems. i dont know if the save size is wrong but it works and i have an 8 gig so the filesize doesnt matter to me

    Saves from the older loaders (when it still had the save list) were not all 512KB though, so those might need to be fixed if the Real can't handle saves that aren't the size it expects. Saves from the newer loaders should be identical to saves from the Real.

    The M3 Real is compatible with 256K saves, also it will create a new 512K file keeping all the save data intact.

    Will it load the 0.5K and 8K saves?

    Pad to 512KB. The file for the G6 Real will rename the saves to .0, but the Reals now name their save files .sav like every other cart. I should probably update it, a lot has changed since I wrote those files.

    Yes, it works, it's just that the info in the readme is out of date and the Reals don't name their saves .0 any more, as well as a few other minor details that might confuse people who don't know much about flashcarts & save files.

    No, there is no need to convert saves that arn't 512k to 512k.

    i think it's different when you use m3sakura.
    i had to convert my raw sav from final fantasy revenant wings to 512k before it could be used, while other savs that came raw as 512k did work.

    Why the frowny face? All you have to do is select the lot of them and drop them onto the batch file.
