[Release] GameBoy save dumper for X-Series
« on: March 18, 2021, 11:35 PM »
Hi guys,
I wrote a simple tool to dump your gameboy saves using a transfer pak on your everdrive64 X5 and X7 (OS v3.04 and above). Simply put the v64 file anywhere on the SD card and run the application like a game. The application will save a .srm file to the root of your sd card.
I tested it with pokemon yellow, silver and crystal and a GBC tomb raider game and all worked. Please consider this is an early version, so be careful!

Please tell me if it works or don't works for you.  ;D

Special thanks to:
saturnu - for the libgbpak
ragnaroktomorrow - for library improvements
networkfusion - for the sample IO app

Check the git repo if you're interested: https://github.com/ner01/gb-save-dumper-n64/

Wow a very useful tool! Any chance to get it to work on the ED64 v2?

Dunno if these save the game save too, but I used it to dump my GB/C games for no-intro. Was years ago...

As dreimer said, you should use the libgbpak-demo-tool from saturnu if you having an everdrive v1, v2, v2.5 or v3. I think the I/O system changed on the everdrive X5 and X7, which is why saturnus tool isn't working on these newer devices   ;)

I just tried this tool and it works very well, I was able to dump my game of yellow pokemon Spanish version and test it in the VisualBoyAdvance emulator just by changing the file extension, but one question

Is it possible to add an option to transfer savedgame to our cartridges?

Thank you very much for creating this useful tool and sorry for my bad English, it is not my native language.

Thanks dreimer and ner0, I forgot that Saturnu made a Gameboy dumping tool. The readme says it can dump SRAM as well, so this is perfect!

I tried Saturnu's tool and it didn't work for the Pocket Camera that I tried. I guess it's possible it doesn't support this game.
