    Hey everyone.

    I downloaded Pokemon Crystal and was playing it on VisualBoy (a GameBoy Color Emulator for th PC) and I noticed the save file was in the .sgm format. I then used Lameboy to play Crystal on my DS. I manually created a .sav file by pressing X.

    Then I tried to get the .sgm file from my VisualBoy into my R4 by renaming it but did not work... [​IMG]

    My question is:
    Is there anyway to get the save file from the VisualBoy (.sgm) into my R4 (.sav). I haven't found any save file converters in google yet. Can anyone help???

    Thanks in advanced.

    I think you should just make a new save file on Lameboy.
    Did you get really far into the game?

    No I didn't I barely started.
    I wanted to start the game using hacks to get all 3 starters.

    I know in VisualBoyAdvance, you can tell it to export a battery file (save). I'm pretty sure it's in the same format.

    .SGM it's a Save-State. You should use the Battery save which comes in .sav.
