GBA X5 Save Help
« on: August 28, 2019, 08:04 AM »
Hello, I've been playing some pokemon games on the cart and wanted to transfer my save files (.fla) to the PC for some action replay code stuff. I figured out renaming the file type to .sav to get it to work on VBA and switch it back to .fla to run again on the everdrive. however, every time I load up the game on the cart, it loads the last save before I used cheat codes. What am I doing wrong?

current save held on SRAM
you need change games to transfer save from SRAM to SD card

Yes, load up a different game so the save file on the SD card gets updated with the one stored on the board.

inject new edited save into SCRAM no need to load a different game

If you want to edit the save on a computer you need to get the latest save out of it first, which is normally done by loading a different game so that it's copied to SD.
