Trying to move from running emulators in Adrenaline, to using RetroArch for Vita (since it's a unified menu).
I copied my SMW and ALTTP saves from gPSP's save directory, to the one RetroArch uses (ms0:/PSP/GAME/UO gpSP kai -> ux0:/data/retroarch/savefiles).
Upon launching the games, it starts as if I've never played them.
I checked the save folder and saw that it used the extension "srm" rather than "sav" so I tried renaming the files, but still nothing.
I also noticed that the file VBA Next creates is 136 KB rather than UO gpSP kai's 8 KB save.

tl;dr VBA Next and uo gpSP kai use different save formats or something, how do I transfer the save?

Edit: Figured out what's going on. The fucking idiots who made the emulator write the save to offset "00020000" onwards.
