    I just finished Golden Sub on the GBA. And I have the finished data saved. How do I get the password so I can transfer my data into Golden Sun 2? I heard there is some buttons u press while in the screen for orginal golden sun, then u get the password so u can continue ur save using golden sun 2

    I did it with the real cart and it's not buttons, it's like 3 page of letters and numbers, I don't really remember, it's been a few years ago
    and I'm not sure if it's the same for roms..

    edit: nvm my answer I just re-read your question

    Its a pain to have to copy the password down like that. I usually use the GS:TLA Password Generator and just copy in the exact gear that I have in the clear data.

    I did the password transfer thing once, it's REALLLY annoying when you type the 3+ pages in and their is one character missing and you cant find it lol [​IMG]

    Just use an emulator so that you don't have to copy down a huge code. I think vbalink can emulate it so that it thinks you are transferring using a link cable. Then copy that golden sun 2 data to your flashcard.

    I actually held L+R+(left arrow) and B and then I got the option to choose Bronze, Silver, or Gold.

    So I choose Gold and I got like 6+ pages of letters, chatacters, and symbols. Took me about 15min to type it in manually, but it worked and it was worth it [​IMG]

    yay

    Yeah, the Bronze and Silver passwords are shorter, but they don't transfer as much.

    Do what I did. Get that GBA save backupper for the DS.
    Put it on your supercard, (it's homebrew btw), and back it up to your PC.
    Then download that Visualboyadvance that's able to link.
    And just do the link transfer between the roms, and put the Golden Sun 2 save on the GBA cart (with the same homebrew), and voila.
    Saves a lot of button pressing, seriously, you don't want to enter a code that big.
