    I'm wondering how I can use the .SAV files created using my cyclods and ezflash 3 in 1 on a computer using visualboy advance or any other emulator. GBA games btw

    I tried and nothing happens, it seems VBA uses a different extension for it's saves. I've tried changing .sav to .sg1 (or w/e it is) but to no avail

    any help would be very appreciated =)

    Did you go to "import Battery file" when selecting the saves in VBA?

    You have to use a save converter.
    I think it is called shiny or something.

    "Battery save" is the same thing as "plain save" - both mean .sav files which is the generic file format for save files.

    Make sure your 3in1 isn't set to use multisave, as I've heard that can complicate things. Otherwise I don't really know how exactly to make it work.
