    Are there any save converters from M3 to G6/G6L right now? I got a G6L but I want my save files from my M3.
    Can anyone kindly tell me where I can get it? Thank you [​IMG]

    G6 saves are only renamed .sav files. Just use the game manager to convert the saves from .dat to .sav then just rename the file for use with the G6. [​IMG]

    Technically yes.. the save files G6 uses are simply original .sav files.
    However, it has a fixed size (256kb) for the program to recognize. So in my experience it has to be that exact size, which it won't when converting ex an m3 save file to .sav.

    Adding some extra bytes in some hex editor will fix that though.

    well, I haven't test it much because I don't have any of my old saves so I dont' really want to play. It is good tho, it works just like M3 but smaller size.
    So how can I even use the M3 game manager to switch .dat to .sav files? What is the hex editor thing.. can you be a bit more specific? Thank you.

    Thanks out phase, I will try it.
    I got my G6L from HK 4 days ago. Just got back to Canada yesterday.
    They only had like 30 for sale, I was lucky.
