    [​IMG] Shuny's Web save converter closed for redevelopment.

    [​IMG]

    The Shuny Save Game Converter Web site is being recoded. Due to a lack of updates and the structure of the current code base, the developer has decided to start from scratch. There is no release date set for the new site. Please read the spoiler for a message from the developer.



    Message from the developer

    Please help him with his redevelopment by sending in your save files!

    He should mention the offline converter on the site, even if he doesn't support it. Because the converter was (is) such an useful tool and I know I'll have forgotten where to get the offline version when I need to convert something next :]

    Plus it would save him from tons of spam from kiddies asking what to do now.

    Edit: Now you made this into a news post, so I won't have difficulties finding the Offline-App when I need it [​IMG]

    Figures it was the day I create an account on his forum that he closes the converter. [​IMG]

    Nevertheless I sent some save files from retail games his way.

    I don't get it... Aren't all NDS save types the same?

    Well, back in the day... [​IMG]

    Yeah, flashcarts have come a long way and most of them all use the same file format now. But that hasn't always been the case.

    This makes me feel good, having my tool linked to on the front page of GBAtemp.Net.

    Good thing I have unlimited bandwidth.
    [Edit]
    I am also currently working on an online save converter.

    The only slot-1 device I've used has been a CycloDS, which I assumed just used basically the same raw save data that's stored on the cartridge? Especially as I'm able to restore the Cyclo's saves back to the original cartridge.

    I wouldn't mind seeing his website add GBA save conversion, though... from those stupid Gameshark formats and stuff.

    I have finished my Online Save Converter, and is currently publishing (if the application is offline, try again later).

    Please email admin@uniquegeeks.net if you find any bugs/errors/suggestions/specs for a new format.

    Lol, just when I decided to save a web archive of the converter.
    Now I can still use it even though it's closed.

    A web archive doesn't save server side code.

    And you would need to run your own local server anyway even if you somehow had gotten the scripts - which you didn't.

    Just use converter by Unique.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your support. The converter is now back online but not in its final version. If you see any bugs, just post here, I always take a look at GBATemp [​IMG]

    If you have saves to share, I still need it [​IMG] The perfect save set would be a package containing TLOZ: Spirit Tracks, Pokemon: Heart Gold and any other save you have [​IMG] But I'm not that difficult [​IMG] If you have any saves, it'll be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    And again thanks for your support, tempers [​IMG]

    I remember being able to convert a save file correctly by using the web archive I saved.
    But it doesn't matter anyway now, since it's back on.
