    If I already loaded my ROM to it but I don't want to begin it again, am I able to load the SAV I have from that game?

    If so, how?

    And other one, probably noob, how do I dump the firmware and all that from my DS to it?

    Well, I think that's it for now.

    Thanks in advance,
    ~Jos

    You can dump the firmware and BIOS files from your own DS using one of several tools. Here's one of them: http://nds.cmamod.com/2007/01/24/dsbf_dump...irmware-dumper/

    Once you get them, name them "firmware.bin" "BIOSNDS7.ROM" and "BIOSNDS9.ROM" and put them in the same folder as no$gba.

    Dumping a save file from your original game cartridge can be done with Rudolph's NDS Backup Tool or SavSender.

    Ok I will do that, thanks Dan.

    I know how to dump the save from the original cartridge, but.. am I able to use this SAV in the NO$GBA?

    I don't want to begin my games again and such..

    Shuny's online save converter can convert to no$gba format as far as I know. If not, convert to RAW and then edit the "no$gba.ini" file to use RAW save files instead of "compressed" ones.

    Ok. Just another question.

    Do I change the format to an Acekard RPG RAW format .sav or to a NO$GBA .sav format?

    If you're going to be running the rom in no$gba, select the no$gba option. If that doesn't work, try the RAW option and change the no$gba.ini file accordingly.

    Yup. I'm going to use the .nds.sav in the NO$GBA.

    And once I converted it to a NO$GBA .sav, will I be able to play it as a normal ROM?

    Just not beggining it all over again?

    That depends on how well no$gba emulates the game. It doesn't have 100% compatibility.

    Now it works. I set the incorrect savetype for the game so that's why it wasn't working.

    In fact, most of it was because of your help. Thank you very much [​IMG]

    I have a question about this topic. Is there an offline application who can do the same that the Shuny's Online Converter? Because I use a laptop and sometimes when I travel to some places I don't have internet signal. Thanks in advance for answers...
