Hey guys could anyone help me? I'm trying to get my NO$gba .sav to Drastic .dsv. I can't use Desmume because a certain ACtion Replay code won't work on that emulator. I've tried Shunnyweb and I've tried renaming the files .sav to .dsv, and nothing has worked so far. I can post my .sav if anyone can help!

I'm wondering if I could get any help. I played many games on an old phone and backed up all the in-game saves to transfer them into my new phone, problem is that Drastic isn't recognizing any of my save files. I don't really know what the problem is as the file extensions are correctly named and have the same name (again, I was playing normally until I changed phones).
I even tried creating a new in-game save, then replacing it with the old one to no avail, they're still unrecognizable by the app. Any help would be greatly appreciated

And for the record, yes, I bought Drastic like in 2014

Did you granted the Storage perm to Drastic on your new phone? Maybe it can't read the files cuz it can't access the storage in the first place. And maybe try backing up the Drastic folder on your old phone and overwriting the Drastic folder on your new phone with that backup. I had to do that once and had no problems with the saves.
OBJECTION!

I'm having a save issue with Meteos, in that it refuses to accept an old .dsv from my computer and says it has to reformat the save data to continue. The save works fine in Desmume and even if I copy the save from the cart through TWLSaveTool on a hacked 3DS and import it into Desmume, it works...but that same save won't in DraStic.

This is the only game (hopefully not 'so far') where the old .dsv I had already didn't work. Any ideas of what I can try?

Ive been playing Spirit Tracks for quite a while now. I saved today and now when i load that specific save, the game crashes to Drastic Main Menu. Ive tried every fix in the help section, (The game wasnt compressed to begin with) and i cant upload the save either. If I go quick, I can press a single button ingame before it crashes, dont know if that helps.

Have you made an in-game save you can load or only have savestates?

This is the reason its reccomended to make in-game saves because savestates can be unstable and may crash.

Nope, only savestates, thats why its an issue. To restate, its only one specific savestate that is broken, the most recent one, and i assume its because of where i saved in the game (Though i dont know why). Converting the savestate to a different spirit tracks still crashes it.

There isn't really anything you can do then in that case, that savestate is permanently broken now. this is again why we reccomend to use in-game saves instead.
