View Full Version : no$gba .SAV + R4DS

February 17th, 2008, 4:01 PM
A friend of mine recently put Pokemon Pearl on his R4 flash cart. Seeing it as an opportunity to get another Azelf, I decided to start a game in no$gba. Since I wanted the Azelf to have my OT, I tried to load the .SAV file onto my friend's R4 cart, so I could change my OT and Secret ID to that of one of my real Pokemon via Pokesav. However, when he tried to start Pearl, it gave an error: "Corrupted save archive", or something along those lines. Anyone know how to fix this, or if it can be fixed?

I've gone the other way with no problems--transferring a .sav started in an M3DSS (exact same hardware as the R4) to the PC for use with no$. Maybe there's some emulation error in no$gba where a new game started doesn't produce a .sav that's quite right in every way.

And there should be no residual problems if you just put back the original .sav onto your R4.

Go to no$gba.ini and replace: SAV/SNA File Format == Compressed
By: SAV/SNA File Format == Uncompressed

Then download No$gba to vba and convert the save file,
then rename the new savefile to : <your roms name>.SAV
And i hope it works!

(no link to no$gba to vba)

(if this doesn't work try doing it without converting but with the no$gba.ini change)
