    Hello,

    So I've been playing Phantasy Star Online via Nintendont recently, and I decided I wanted to try to play online, not realizing until now that I have to run Devolution on an actual PSO disc (which I do have), but also with a physical memory card to play online. I've been playing off the virtual memory card in Nintendont. I downloaded Gamecube Memory Manager and perhaps I'm just dumb and can't figure it out, but is there a way to move the virtual Nintendont save to an actual memory card so I can play online, or am I just screwed and have to start over?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    EDIT: I should specify - I'm trying to move the save file to the memory card plugged into my Wii. I don't have a memory card reader I can connect to my computer...

    You can try using GCMM.

    Right - that's what I've been trying to use, but I can't figure out how to pull the save from the virtual memory card and put it on the physical memory card.

    The only way known to me is to use the memory card manager of Dolphin emulator. Extract the save file from the memory card image and the restore it with GCMM to your physical memory card
    In Dolphin click Tools->Memcard Manager GC
    Browse your image, select the save file and press export GCI
    Copy the GCI file to your SD/USB device and restore it with GCMM to your physical memory card

    This worked PERFECTLY, and I'd have probably never figured that out. Thank you so much!
