    I know that there are loads of other save questions, but when I looked through them all I couldn't find anything related to my problem (or I didn't look hard enough).
    Basically the two games I'm having trouble with are:

    Fire Emblem
    Fire Emblem : Fuuin no Tsurugi (The English patched version)

    In both games I have saves on VBA that I'd like to keep, but when I try to save them they are 64KB whereas when I save them on my Cyclo using the built in support, it only accepts 32KB.

    My second problem is that when the Cyclo PSRAM patches Fuuin no Tsurugi the english language gets erased

    The reason they accept 32K only is because the Fire Emblem games use 32K SRAM save types, or at least The Sacred Stones does. My suggestion would be to try this:

    http://www.shunyweb.info - convert the save down to 32 KB, use the default setting for the input, and the Raw [Force 32K] setting for the output. That should give you a 32 KB save that might work with the Cyclo GBA loader, but no guarantees as I have no clue how VBA saves work. Would you mind uploading your Fire Emblem save to Rapidshare so we could have a look at it? I'm no Destructobot, nowhere even close, but I've been fiddling around with hex editors and GBA saves to try to get them to work with my M3 Real and GBA expansion (well, in this past week [​IMG]), let me see if I can help you out.

    Okay so Fire Emblem works, thanks.

    But Fire Emblem : Fuuin no Tsurugi still won't work since the Cyclo still goes and patches over it removing the english translation. I tried to PSRAM patch a newly patched copy in GBATA but the option won't let me. Does anyone else have experience with this or not?
