    Is there anyway to convert saves from an M3 Perfect to an R4DS?

    I tried using the M3 GM to convert my dats to savs, but the R4 says they're corrupt if I try to load them.

    You need to pad the resulting .sav file to be the right size (512KB). Use padbin from the gbfs distribution.

    or use the m3 simply save converter (think r4 has one too) and it'll take that dat file and convert it a 512kb save file used for the r4/m3 simply.

    That way would probably be best for those unfamiliar with the grunt work "behind the scenes."

    Indeed, most don't appreciate the coding devs slave after for the final product. Thinking about it makes me cringe and glad despite I graduated comp sci and math, I'd kill myself if I was stuck in a cubicle coding all day.
