    Hi everyone
    I wondering if the R4/M3 Simple saves can be use with Rein or Reinmoon.
    Of course I have to transfer them to my SCLite but as they 512Ko instead of the 256ko the supercard save, I was wondering if it can damage my original cartridge ?
    Thanks

    I use a hex editor (like frhed) to convert my saves. Just compare it with your original to see the changes [​IMG] (extra header, padding and such)

    Worked so far with all my saves (DS -> Flash Advance Pro -> SuperCard)

    I haven't looked at the R4DS saves yet, but if you convert a SC savegame to R4 save with "SAVE Transform.exe" (R4 utility), it will probably be easy to spot the difference.

    EDIT:
    I ran it though a compare tool and the only difference between a SC save and R4 save are the added bytes. So it "should" be safe to transfer to a DS-cart. If you cut the extra bytes, the files will be identical.

    Thanks a lot, even I don't know how to cut the bytes [​IMG] but I'll find or Rein or Reinmoon will be updated to support R4/M3 saves.
