hi,
i used a f2a cart + pogoshell 2b4 to play mario and luigi superstar.

now i want to play this game with my new g6lite. therefor i need to extrect the save files from the cart to my computer and convert them to the g6 save file format.

but i am having troubles to get the superstar.sav off the cart?

i tried "sram explorer 2" but it needs a pogoshell dump (*.dump) to be able to browse the savegames.

how can i create a pogoshell dump from my cart?

i am using the xtremelink v1.25 software access my cart.
it can extract the single sram slots (1-4). but there are lots of savegames in each of those slots as pogoshell handles the savegames.
i can dump the cart creating a *.gba file. does this file contain the sram files?

so how do i get a pogoshell *.dump file? pls help

ok a *.dump file is file that contains the sram banks 1 to 4.

unfortunately xtremelink 1.25 does not support to extract all the srams in one file.

can i make 1 file out of those 4 sram.sav files to open it with sram explorer?

When you launch a ROM in Pogoshell, its savegame is uncompressed to bank 1 (bank 2 to 4 are used to store compressed saves).
So if you want to extract a save to your computer, just launch the game in PogoShell, switch off, and extract the first bank.

You have 3 solutions

- You can make a single dump file by merging together all your four save-games with an hex-editor or anything else that allow binary file concatenation, just be careful to respect the order of the bank.
- If I recall correctly, you can open your .sav individually by changing the file type in the Open File dialog box. I think it should work although I can't remember for sure.
- And last, you can follow bubblejoe method. If you need to only get one save back, it will probably be the faster one.
