save restore seems to be working now. ^^
i'm going to upload a beta version tomorrow or the next days.
until now i have tested it with the edgb, but i don't own any retail carts with memory on it. ^^

SUCCESS :) :D ;D!!!
Tested Super Mario Land 2, felt like an idiot cause i used a different save (Wario Land iirc) but found the right save and successfully transfered the save. Now, i can go from EDGB to retail and backup my saves and dump multicarts. Talk about convenient!

No problem, thanks for releasing it!
Just tested Pokemon Red, SUCCESS :P!!!
Pretty confident that this tool works fine, and in fact is now better than the one designated for the 64drive. I will test other saves tomorrow as well

Just registered to thank you for this amazing tool! :)

I tested it yesterday with 5 games. All of them dumped successfully, same goes for the savegames.
Next thing I tried, booting up a GB-Emulator and load up my fresh dumped games with the according savegames.
The .srm files simply renamed to .sav, the Emulator recognized these and everything worked fine.
The last thing I did was grabbing a savegame from the web for a game, renamed it according to my own dump and then write it to my GB-SRAM. Worked nicely as well, now I have a third party savegame on my cart.

Just had a weird issue with a modified Pokemon Crystal save. The restore worked fine in general, but Pokemon Stadium 2 froze once I clicked on the edition in any menu. After a reboot, the savegame was wiped again. Guess this is related to the savegame after all.

Anyway, once again thank you very much for this useful tool!

Hi,

Does anyone know of any solution to dump Gameboy Camera save ?

GB64 v3 doesn't work with this sram...

hm yes, i looked at the camera rom header and it's using a special mapper (0xFC), that is capable to do the camera stuff beside the rom/ram mapping.
a pretty logical implementation, to say the truth. ^^

atm. i don't own such a camera and it's pretty awful to program for a device, totally blind. :D

I know nothing at all about programming. :(
So, if I can improve the world in that way, send me your postal address in PM, I'll send you back a Gameboy Camera.

camera support? on the next fleamarket, i'm looking around for one. i don't think it's worth it - sending one around the globe. :>

btw. i thought about a microcontroller based transfer pak emulator, something like a flashcart, that could be connected instead of a joypad or as an adapter. :>

it's more or less just a copy&paste job. i have the controller code and transfer pak code ready, but atm. i'm not sure about the interface.
maybe just sram and a homebrew on the ed64 uploading to the device, or a seperate sdcard and some buttons.
there are pros and cons...

but atm it's on the bottom of the todo list, i have to finish other projects first. ^^
hopefully someone is faster than me, after reading this. :D

pocket camera test version

changelog:
- ed64v3 support
- gameboy camera sram dump support (untested) - tested by gojira54, should work

I'm not sure if the camera sram dumping works ^^
would be cool if someone could give me a feedback on this


writeback of the camera sram is disabled, 'cause i don't have a camera and couldn't test if it's working. (don't want to currupt your data) ^^
(maybe it's already working. if someone really needs this feature, leave a comment ^^)

Download:
gb64_v05_beta_camera_test.zip

maybe, but i don't have one ^^
try one this tools after dumping the ram from the gbcamera
