Retron 5 save file converter - web based

There's a tool listed on this forum for reading/writing save games to/from the Retron 5 format. It works on Windows and you have to download an executable. It's been super useful to lots of people for a long time now.

I'm on a Mac so I wrote one that works in a browser and you don't have to download anything: https://savefileconverter.com

You can check out the source code here if you're interested (or want to contribute code): https://github.com/euan-forrester/save-file-converter

Please let me know what you think, and I'd love any suggestions you have!

Edit: I recently added a Troubleshooting tool to the page, where if there's a save that won't work you can try making a test save with the emulator or cartridge you're trying to get it to work on, and the tool will compare the files and try to fix the broken one. For example, the GBA emulator on the Retron5 will sometimes write out a crazy file that won't work in other emulators.
