    Can anyone point out which target format to use when converting from M3 Real *.0 saves to Sakura *.sav saves?

    I've tried http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php with little sucess despite several settings and attempts. Is there another, easier way perhaps?

    Thank you and cheers,
    TD

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I think all you need to do is simply rename the extension from ".0" to ".sav". No need for save converters.

    *EDIT*
    If that works, let me know and I'll put this up as a new question on the FAQ. I've heard that it works for others, but I haven't had a need to try it myself.

    Make sure you got the same region, so USA -> USA, not USA->EUR, also my M3Real has .sav sav files O.o, an dmy Sakara has sometihng with .opt(maybe cheat files)

    opt=settings such as soft-reset, cheat mode, and download play mode.
    cht=cheats that you enabled.

    over there
    Every M3 Real loader (after 3.3, I think) should rename your .0 save files to .sav files automatically. I'm sure it was part of the process of switching to Sakura.

    Actually, saves from one region will usually work with a matching game from a different region, as long as the differences between versions aren't major.
