Is that possible, if so how can it be done?
If you've got a DS with a slot 1 flash card, you can use GBA Backup Tool, available in the downloads section.
I haven't actually tried restoring a save to a cart from a file, but it does a great job backing up the save file from the cart and it can also backup the ROM itself.
Give it a try and see how it works. I'm pretty sure the latest version is the 0.21, but I haven't checked to see if there's been an update in a while.
Alright sounds like a good idea, ill take a shot with it.
Yup perfect, can you do the same with the rom file itself?
You can backup the rom to your computer, but you can't overwrite a game cartridge with another game or anything. It's called Read-Only Memory for a reason.
Ah, well I can flash over the save file which was my original goal so thats satisfying enough for me, although it would be cool to patch my firered to play shiny gold
Could you apply an IPS patch to a cart, perhaps? :3 Sorry if I'm derailing the thread
The only writeable portion of any official game cartridge is the save data, nothing else.
Aw, alright. Thanks for answering..
Yeah thanks, that answers all my questions on this topic, but thanks for the gba backup too, i can finally redo games without losing older saves now
