    This guide will show you how to backup/import saves on your GBA VC games. These saves are universal and can be used with emulators such as VBA-M for example. Have fun importing your old GBA saves into VC games!


    Extracting the Save

    1. Launch your GBA VC game that you wish to backup the save file for. You don't need to do anything, just launch it, and then close it.

    2. Power off the console. Then power it back on while holding the button you have assigned for Hourglass9.

    3. Go to,

      SysNAND Options,
      GBA VC Save Dump
    If no errors showed up, then you should have a "gba.sav" file in the files9 folder on your SD card.

    Importing a save

    Simply use the steps above, but select "GBA VC Save Inject" instead in Hourglass9
