[tool] ED64-Saveswap v0.1 beta
« on: March 08, 2014, 03:22 PM »
Hi,
here is a tool that helps you converting save files from an emulator to the ED64.
it's like always ^^ just a beta version and needs some testing :D

Howto:
after executing, select the save file. now select the filesize to what the file should be extended.
select the needed swapping options and click on "convert file".
Rename the file to your rom-filename except the file-extension.

Hint:
In the most cases you will be fine with the default settings. If it's not working, create a new save-file with the ED64 and compare it with a hexeditor to your converting results, if it somehow matches. ^^
Make sure you use exactly the same rom on the everdrive64 and your emulator.
you can take a look at this boot/save list for the correct save settings.

Features:
  • byte-swap
  • word-swap
  • byte appending
  • save backup (*.bak)

Windows 8


Windows Xp


Download:
ED64-Saveswap.zip

I attached the source if someone wants to fix something, or just don't trust any executables from the internet. ^^

Wow, thank you so much! Ucon 64 was being nasty to me, but Saveswap was being an angel. It works great, and because I can convert Pokemon Stadium saves, I can transfer hacked Pokemon to my cartridge!! No more gameshark for my pokemon - or items! :)

Thanks saturnu the program has so far worked great! But would anyone know how to get a save from the Everdrive 64 to work on project 64? I have been having a hard time finding any info on the subject. I have tried byte-swapping the save from the Everdrive 64 but project 64 doesn't see the save.

i have edited the first post, so it links to the compilation archive thread. it's easier for me to just look after one file. ^^

hi saturnu,

can this program allow me to change a save file from PJ64 to Everdrive and back? I know it does at least the first part (pj64-> everdrive), I'm more curious about the other way around. thanks

Just had an idea. Maybe it works if you load your ED64 file into the app and select the same options like you did to convert it for the ED64.

it's just a byteswapper with an extension function, if you swap with the same options again, it should reverse the swapping.
the padding at the end of the file shouldn't be a problem.

 If a game saves on the controller mempak, can I transfer it betwen emulator for ED64?

 And how ED64 do with games who needs a controller mempak? Its saves on SD or I still need a controller pak?

 And if I have copies of the same roms, the saves will be different for each rom in ED64 or it will be the same just like emulators?

If the game saves on a mempak then it will only save there, the only thing the ED64 saves on the SD card with a game save, are ones that would save to the game's cart.
