    Hello,

    A few people have trouble with the save that was used in an Emulator on PC to convert it to VC.
    Almost it doesn´t work on VC.

    I tell you today how to Fix it :)

    Things you will need:

    HxD (or anyother Hex editor)
    Your GBC Save (Used on an Emulator)
    JSKV (to inject the save to VC)

    Supported Versions :

    Pokemon Gold
    Pokemon Silver
    Pokemon Crystal
    Pokemon Prism
    and other GBC Rom Hacks

    First you open your Emulator Save with HxD
    and scroll down to the last to Lines and Delete it.

    Now you can save it and rename to sav.dat
    Now you can import it to VC.

    SUPER EDIT:
    welp, i fixed it :D
    what i did was this:

    -exported a VC save
    -open my emulator save with HxD
    -open my VC save with HxD
    -in the emulator save i went to the last two lines and deleted them, so the last offset now it's 0x7FE0
    -then i went to the VC save and copy the last two lines (offset 0x7FF0 and 0x8000)
    -back to my emulator save i pasted the lines in the end, so now the last line is offset 0x8000 again
    -saved as sav.dat and copy it to jksm folder
    -imported the save
    -open the game
    -PROFIT
