    I'm looking to convert some save files that were originally for PAL versions of certain games (i.e. Gale OF Darkness), I searched and found a topic on here that linked to this: http://forums.ngemu.com/dolphin-discussion/113884-using-sav-gci-gcs-dolphin.html

    Only problem is, it appears that the topic is dead, and the files have been lost. So I'm wondering if anyone has the files linked in that thread? Here's a screenshot of the file names.

    If no one has the files anymore, is there another program that can convert PAL save files to NTSC?
    I tried hex editing the Gale Of Darkness save file, but it did not work.

    You tried hex editing, what exactly did you change? I once had to do something like this and it worked, all I did was change the ID to the correct region. G9SE -> G9SJ

    I tried changing the header, but I'm not that familiar with hex editing.
    Did you hex edit Gale Of Darkness?

    No, but I've done this before for a Japanese game all I did was change the region letter so the game picks it up. You can even do this with Notepad.
