    Okay here is the new question....can you trade pokemon from like lets say a rom version of Pokemon Emerald on the G6 to a retail cart of Pokemon Leaf Green? I would have to go out and buy TWO GBAs, 1 retail cart, so I'd like to know if anyone has any experience trading from retail to flash cart kits.

    don't buy any if you dont really want to!

    I can personally guarantee you that you'd be able to trade using just your pc!

    There is a mod for vba that lets you do multiplayer. it kinda sucks through the internet, but through your own intranet it works much faster, so do that.

    I was able to play a choppy version of super puzzle fighter with my gf from md to nj, so imagine that at intranet speed and it will definitely work

    I've used VBA to trade from Emerald to Emerald using the link feature. What I want to do is link the GBA game to the DS game within G6.

    LOL ceraphis I know you can use VBALink to trade from emerald to Leaf Green ROMS....however I have 80 PLUS hours clocked with some rare and legit ass pokemon I am trying to get to my DS retail cart so......

    To answer question....no you can not use a M3 or G6 and get Pal Park to work.....I don't even think use a self booting flash cart would work cause of the save type problem....so again my question is can you trade pokemon from a G6 version of a pokemon game with a retail cart version....has anyone actually tried this?

    Just dump your legit retail cart save and use that with VBALink. cart_save.gba works wonderfully on the G6. Put that in your G6, boot GBA mode, open it, take your G6 out, insert your legit cart, wait for it to read all the data, take out your retail cart and put in your G6 again and let it write the save to your G6. Your savefile will be on the root of your G6 with a .sav extension.

    I'm not sure, but the .sav files it dumps seem to be Supercard saves, which you can easily convert. Even the G6 UDisk Manager supports those saves if for some reason you wanted to transfer the progress you have on your legit cart to the G6 and play it there.

    I just can't wait for the GBA - DS linkage on P/D to be fixed... Do you think G6 will come out with a new patch or will they act evil and not patch a thing in order to force everyone to buy a G6 Real? *shudders*

    Wait, you got an Emerald rom save file transferred onto a legit GBA cart? I'm confused about what you're trying to do but if so, I was wondering about the same thing. I have an Emerald save file that I want to import into Diamond through Pal Park.

    Here is what I had:
    Pokemon Emerald Save from a EZ-Flash II
    Pokemon Leaf Green Save from a EZ-Flash II
    and
    Pokemon Diamond save from a M3

    What I did:
    I bought legit versions of Pokemon Diamond and Leaf Green
    I converted my Diamond Save from M3 to G6
    I then used my G6 to write my rom save to the retail cart
    I then used the program cart_save.gba on my M3 to transfer my Leaf Green save to the retail cart

    I then put both retail carts in my DS and unlocked the Pal Park

    and how, WeaponX, did you use cart_save for the save transfer? the instructions I've found are a bit vague.

    Boot up the M3 in GBA mode..select cart_save.gba and press A.

    The program will then say press L to copy save from retail to M3 or press R to transfer the save from the M3 to the retail

    Press R

    It will then ask what save do you want to transfer....

    select the save

    it will then say to remove the M3 and insert the retail cart and press A

    At this point give it two minutes to copy the save!

    Vioila your retail cart now has your pokemon on it! Well...it worked for me!

    That's pretty cool. I wonder if anyone has confirmed it (cart_save) to work for G6 as opposed to M3. I have transferred DS saves to legit carts with G6, easy as pie.

    I wonder if my Emerald save would be compatible with a retail cart, I used it back and forth between EFA Linker cart and Visualboy Advance. The saves are 128KB.

    cart_save is DLDI, so it should work on any Slot-2 cart with the proper patch. I tested it on the G6: I was able to dump the save of my legit Ruby cart -- I can now play it on my G6.

    But, until GBA - DS linkage for P/D is fixed, I don't have much use for it. P/D isn't out in Europe yet and my Ruby cart is European, so there isn't much I can't do, even if I imported Diamond, I couldn't use Pal Park with my legit Ruby cart.

    We are talking about going the other way Whateverdude.....from the G6 TO THE retail cart.....

    I have both M3 and G6....

    I copied the cart_save.gba file over to my G6 without using the software
    Copied save from Legit Pokemon Leaf Green to G6: WORKS
    Copied save from G6 to Legit Pokemon Leaf Green: NO - Locks Up

    I then copied the cart_save.gba file over to my M3 without using the software
    Copied save from Legit Pokemon Leaf Green to M3: WORKS
    Copied save from M3 to Legit Pokemon Leaf Green: WORKS

    I have a feeling the G6 doesn't work because its looking for a certain file structure...same way some homebrew only works on my M3 not on my G6.

    You mean the save you just dumped won't upload? That's weird. Lemme test that and see if it works.

    ah, well that sounds unfortunate, since I only have a G6. I too am hoping to transfer an Emerald save, and when I go to the cart_save screen, I am given no choice on what save I want to transfer. I wonder if it just picks one or if this is the problem with the G6. Otherwise, the right messages seem to be coming up.

    That is the problem with the G6, on my M3 it list the directory of files on M3, you then select a save and it tells you to swap out the G6 with the retail cart and press A.....on the G6 it locks up right after you hit the right shoulder pad.

    Hi! Has anyone tested this utility for Supercard SD? If it works then I'm definitely going to buy any legit Pokemon GBA game so that I can transfer my saves from EZFlash... [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    I found one method of accomplishing the equivalent of importing GBA pokemon into Diamond/Pearl with a G6. I downloaded Ciro's Pokemon Maker which is compatible with the GBA games, then I used VBA to export my old Emerald save in gameshark format, which Ciro reads. I was then able to view all the detailed stats of any pokemon in my Emerald save. After that I used Pokesav editor, which is compatible with Diamond/Pearl, to recreate the pokemon with all the same stats, and set the right location so that it says the pokemon was imported through pal park from emerald. The final result is identical data to what you would have gotten through importing GBA>NDS within the game. Not bad!
