    Hi,

    I have developed a little client to receive save files sent by savsender.

    I called it: Savreceiver.

    Features:
    - Simple
    - Fast
    - Multi linkers (actually M3/R4 and DSLinker but more in few days)
    - Multilingual (Default is French take a look to the readme.txt to know how to turn it into English)
    - Step by step tutorial included

    Download

    (this package includes savsender-1.1)

    You honestly don't know how much I need this. I have been using savsender for a while but hate how complicated it is and that it is just command line. This put together with a GUI is just what I need. Thank you Starcom.fr and welcome to GBAtemp!

    Glad to help you.
    Ask me if you experiment any problem.

    I know that DSLinker display an error message, but it make the save file working just after. This message will be corrected in the next version.

    You forgot one thing. On the root of the users card, they must have a folder called "data" and inside that folder another called "settings". Inside the settings folder has to be a file called "savsender.conf".

    X:/data/settings/savsender.conf

    The .conf file has to be set up like this using notepad

    192.168.0.103
    1723

    Where line one is the IP address to send the save file and line two is the port.

    To find your IP, if you don't know it, open command prompt and type in "ipconfig" (Without the quotations obviously). You can use any number you want for the port. I just happen to pick 1723, no reason.

    What do you mean ?

    In the readme file I've wrote
    I thought that it was sufficient.
    I have not wrote to patch the .nds with the Dldi too.

    But if you prefer, I could add an "How to install savsender" chapter in the readme file.
    That's right that's not easy for everyone...

    Sorry, I didn't notice that part. If you want to your could add a section on how to install savsender on your cart.

    Did you chose 1723 because of Gamerman1723? [​IMG]

    Erm, this might be a dumb/obvious question (because this is the first time I'm using it) but in savsender it tells you to press A to backup the save and B to restore the save. Does Savreceiver allow upload a save file back to the commerical cart? If not then how would I do it with another program?

    A whole lot easier than using netcat. btw How long should most saves take to transfer?

    The transfer takes same time as by using netcat.
    You can be sure for it because savsender sends the data at the same speed (there is any protocol to control speed or valid transfered datas integrity)

    Works great. I only have 1 problem. I cant transfer from my japanese FF3 cart(I do transfer, without errors but the save is unusable). I get "save is damaged" everytime i try to use the save i downloaded.

    Edit: I guess fifth time is the charm. Because it worked now. weird [​IMG]

    The savsender's author has said :
    I think it's your case.

    So, forgive if these questions are dumb, but I really want to get this to work.

    1. So I put the IP Address of my router in the IP place?

    2. I only have dial up, and my router actually doesn't do anything for internet access, but would it still be able to get the .sav?

    3. Are the .sav's in any particular format? Would I need to convert to DS-X ones?

    Thanks.

    I really want to get this to work too [​IMG]

    1. Put your PC local address only

    2. No internet connection is necessary.

    3. You can try both actual formats. I've read that SC format works on DS-X and SC save files that I've get on the web are similar to the actual Savreceiver's DSLinker format.

    Don't forget to type the extension in the file selector because the beta version doesn't add it automatically.
    Don't forget to forward the port to your IP too.

    If it not work try with the sample port: 33891


    I hope it will work for you.

    Hi,

    I have a DS-Xtreme, so will that work with the savreceiver? I'm having trouble with getting savsender to work. I followed all the steps for dumping a save. I successfully dumped a save after it says "sending eeprom.......done". But what do I do with the raw file now? I tried moving it into my ds-x folder, but it still wont recognize it. Can some1 please help?? Also the raw save file that was created when using savsender is 8.00KB. Do I need to convert the save file to a certain kind? If so, what is the target source?

    hey starcom, I did what you asked me to do but it still didnt work. It might just be that the DS-X Linker needs to proper, because I downloaded the DS Linker and dumped my save onto it using savsender. Everything worked like it should, but I dont think my ds-x suppoorts those type of saves. The reason I say this is because I compared a ds-x save to the one I thought was gonna work,and the size of the ds-x save is around 3.5 KB while the one I got from the savreceiver is 256 KB (I think this save size is for the R4s and DS Links). So do you think that its not working because you havnt gotten a ds-x link yet, or have you speaken to someone with a ds-x and said it worked great with the savreceiver. Can you please update on the info. Thanks a lot.
