    Cutting right to the chase:

    I'm looking to hex edit equipment values for Lufia: The Legend Returns for GBC VC. The FaQs on Gamefaqs have the Gameshark codes to do so, but I can't locate those values in Hex Workshop.

    I've been able to use the Gameshark codes on an emulated copy, albeit with a new save file. I would need to convert the VC save from DAT to GBC though, in order to use my save file with it.

    My questions are:

    1. Can I hex edit the equipment values on the regular save file using Gameshark codes as a reference?
    2. If not, is it possible to convert the .DAT save for use with Visual Boy Advance?

    Sorry, answered my own question after digging around.

    Turns out I can import the .DAT into Visual Boy Advance as a flash save without modifying the file.
