Exclamation how to play in a emulator from files of another

Hi everyone!

I've been playing Pokemon Blue (the second of all) in VBA emulator and now I discovered some emulators that may trade pokemon from an emulator to another, but I'm very advanced in the game and the files that I save the game in VBA don't work in the new emulator like TGB Dual or NO$GBA. What can I do to play pokemon blue in other emulator without start the game all over again?

Please help me.

From what I remember, there is a beta of VBA called VBALink which allows you to run up to four instances of the emulator on your computer simultaneously and function them as if they were linked by GBA cables. Your save files shold be compatible with VBA Link. Give it a try.

Or you can simply copy your SAV file and use it with the other emulators in order to trade Pokemon. With the SAV file you can also return to your original emulator once you have changed the pokemon you want.

I've tried it already and I have nothing as result, or maybe I do it in the wrong way.

When you're playing in VisualBoy Advance there should be a file named 'Pokemon Blue.sav' or similar -- move this file into the BATTERY directory under NO$GBA - should work.
