cool how that dolt both doesn't help AND spams. great job mister pennies per click.

anyhow the easiest way would be to hack it. get a hex editor, and insert however many buytes you want. chances are however, that the rom was hacked or some other bullshit, and it turns out that the save file you have is byteswapped or somehow different than on your piracy toy.

such as

save on cart: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

save from emulator: 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
or
save from emulator: 5 6 7 8 1 2 3 4

so try "copy /b save.srm + save.srm FLASHME.srm" in a dos prompt to double the size of the file, or hack it.

Hm, I see that you have a link to Alex Chiu's stupid immortality rings thing as your sig... <img src=smilies/laff.gif>

And what are you talking about with the save being byteswapped or some such thing? I'll take a save from my GBA cart (the actual game), to the same game playing in an emulator, back to the cart, then to a flash cart containing the same game as the official GBA cart I have with no problems whatsoever....

They are interchangable if the game is the same, why the hell would an emulator or a flashcart byteswap the save? That'd require it to hack the game somehow as then the original game would not understand it (I suppose an emulator could handle this automagically somehow, but a flash cart probably couldn't).

That's a signature you tool. just like yours.

Anyways, I dont have a flash card, thus it doesn't actually have any merit for me to bother, but I would've thought the option would have worked, guess not.

And to answer the other question, no, I seemingly only get 64K files out of it still. maybe it only works for games that require that much space for sram?
