    Hi there, I'm having a bit of trouble converting these types of files. I'm trying to download a few saved games from GameFAQs to use on my R4, but they all upload the saves in a .duc format. So I tried using Shuny's Save Converter, but when I tried using it, it would give me an unusable file that was usually around 60kb or so. I selected the source format as "Action Replay Max DS (.duc/.dst) and the target format with the R4 listed.

    I feel like there's a step I'm missing, or something similar. What should I do?

    Thanks.

    It will most likely spit out a *.sav.gz file which you have to then extract using 7-zip or such like.

    Also try using ARDStoSAV and see if that works.

    It's not doing that, it is simply giving me a *.sav file, not .sav.gz or the likes. Perhaps it's my browser? I'm using the most recent version of Firefox.

    I still haven't had any luck with this despite fooling around with the tool. Can anyone try to do the same thing and see if they get the same results?
