Importing Save File from Desmume

Post by sears » Fri Aug 09, 2013 11:30 am

Just bought drastic and I have pokemon white 2 running very smoothly. I played this game on my computer with desmume, and now I want to move my save files. I found where the save files in drastic are stored, and they all seem to be .dss format. In desmume I can only export to .dst, .sav, and .dsv. Anyone know how I can get my save file working on drastic? Thanks in advance.

Save ingame (desmume), copy your savegame.dsv form desmume/battery/ to Android\data\com.dsemu.drastic\files\backup.

So I read the FAQ on this forum and it was the same thing you said. I put the dsv with the same name as ROM in the backup folder but I do not know how to load my save now.

Thanks, I get it now. I need to save within the actual game and then load within the actual game.

Do you have a list? Copy/pasted my saves (Pokémon Black [first], Castlevania OoE) from Drastic 2.2.0.2a to DeSmuME 0.9.10 and they where simply overwriten. Dunno about save types, but both autodetect options on DeSmuME had the same problems.

sorry, nope since the cvompatibility is unpredictable and we really dont officially support cross comatibility.
