    I was wondering if anyone knew how to get make the No$GBA save file usable for the game(more specifically, Pokemon) on the r4.

    I can take the save from the r4 and play the save file on No$GBA just fine, but when I try the other way around and change the file size to 512 KB, it plays the game but does not detect a saved game and just starts a new one.

    Any help?

    you cant, the no$gba has it own file type compression method, its like the ds-xtreme you would need to write a program to decompress it, the No$gba converts save files it detect automatically but not the R4, you would need to use a converter program which i have never heard of, unless you can make one yourself.

    1. Go to your NO$GBA BATTERY folder and copy your save file somewhere else in order to back it up in case you mess up.

    2. Open NO$GBA.ini in notepad, scroll down to the line:
    SAV/SNA File Format == Compressed
    and change it to:
    SAV/SNA File Format == Uncompressed

    3. Open No$GBA (make sure your save type in NO$GBA is FLASH 512 kbytes) and continue your game. Save the game, and then quit NO$GBA. Check the size of your save file in the BATTERY folder. It should be over 500kb.

    3. Use the follow program to convert your save file, it will remove the first 76 bytes of your save:
    http://www.angelfire.com/games6/battery/
    To use it, click the "Configure" button and set the directory to where your new big save file is. In the empty text box named "New .sav File" enter a name for the new file you will make. Now select your Pokemon save and press convert file. It will create a new save file with the name you typed in.

    4. Download the Pokemon save editor:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/27882633/pokes...on_0.3.exe.html
    Open your new converted save file (the one you made in step 3) with it, and when you are done cheating your ass off, click save. Now take the new save file you just cheated with, and put it in your NO$GBA save folder. Now name it the same name of your original pokemon save, so that NO$GBA will load it when you play the game. That's all. Now I shall enjoy my 99 of every TM, and I had a sex change just for the hell of it.

    Lastly, once you use your hacked save in NO$GBA and save, you will not be able to hack it again right away. Once you have used your hacked save in NO$GBA and saved, you must use the NO$GBA>VBA converter, then hack.
