Importing emulator save files?

Postby Yohanetsu » July 16th, 2016, 8:04 am

(Sorry for double posting, thought a new topic might grab some more attention and I need help here,ppl! ;P )


I bought a retron 5 a couple of weeks ago. I have the latest firmware and all that. I plugged in my favourite game from my childhood (Shining Force 2) and somehow ... the cartridge got erased so my saves went byebye.

I've been trying to import saves from emulators so I can pickup the game where I left off without having to replay most of the game but I can't get the system to load the files. I've tried the Retron 5 File Converter that has been posted here on the forum, I've renamed files to .sav etc etc but nothing works ... One time the system even said something like "Third party SDRAM save loaded" when I started the game but still no saves to continue the game from, just "new game"-

Is it possible to import save files (from emulators) and if so can anyone help me in the right direction?
