This program will grab some save files from DeSmuME and "convert" them to .sav so they can be used on melonDS. In reality all that's done is truncate the little bit of extra text they have at the end but whatever it still counts. It also has a batch file so if you happen to have a lot of saves from a lot of games you can just run it and it'll convert them all.

This was literally made in an afternoon by a beginner programmer so it's really bare-bones. But hey, everyone starts coding somewhere I guess. I'll probably add more stuff later if need be. Bug reports, suggestions, complaints and everything in-between are welcome.

This is neat! There's actually a little more going on than you claim, since DeSmuME puts their saves in a completely different file format, .dsv. I'd be happy to help you test it with some of my save files once I get a chance.

well if simply truncating a bit a the end works, I guess it really isn't a very different format.

Nothing to say, so jadnjkfmnjamnfjkldnajfnjkanfjdksan jsdnvj m.

That's fair, but it's still a little something more than he gave himself credit for

Thank you for this tool! Will try it out.

also: DeSmuME has an 'Export backup memory' option which achieves the same result.

but, ofc, you might have gotten a .dsv without having DeSmuME, so, yeah
