    So i started playing a GBA game on my acekard2i with AKAIO, it made a 64kb .sav file in the same folder as the GBA rom.
    Is there a way to use this .sav file with VBA on the pc?

    Yep. File->Import->Battery file. Now open your .sav.

    Search on a scene releases website (releases.pocketheaven.com works) and see if it's an EEPROM save. If it it, then perhaps you need to invert every 8 bits. I can do this for you if you'd like, or use Destructobot's method at http://gbatemp.net/t53867-a-gba-save-conve...st&p=694180

    Ok the game save i'm trying to transfer is Metroid Fusion the size of the save file is 64kb and the save type is SRAM_V112. the sav file works fine on the acekard2i and the ezflash 3in1 but i can't get it to work on the pc emulators.
