    I tired to open up the same .gba file from my NDSGBA plugin on my ds2. But The VBA does not load up the saves that were previously played using my ds2

    Cant I somehow load the same save state? Or make a .sav file from my ds2 so I can play the same save on my windows pc?

    try moving the save file from the Save folder (I think its called RTS or something similar) into the same folder as the gba rom

    I just checked, and I see a .sav and a couple .rts files, but VBA only recognizes .sgm 0_o

    I'm pretty sure it can read .sav.

    Let me just check...

    EDIT: Yep definitely reads .sav

    I was playing golden sun 1 on my sc ds2 till i got to a point it bacame totally unplayable then copied my .sav over and vba opened it just fine and played it, but then copying back over to the sc ds 2 it would crash or not even load the game. Unless I missed something it wont work both ways.

    It does read .sav, but only the old versions of VBA. I got it to work but another way, here is how i did it 0_o

    Saved using IN-GAME save (real save, not using NDSGBA real-time save). The output of that is .sav, so I dragged the .sav with the .gba on my computer, and I ran the game and loaded the .sav using REAL SAVED FILE (not the real-time save)
