Great news, after a bit more searching I've learned that teudj (author of Devolution) has also authored a program to rip RAW saves from a memory card for use with Devo's emulated MC! Several people report it works well, but I won't add it to the guide till have tested it myself. Soon as I get a chance I will read on how to do it and test it, if it works I will add it to the guide.
Either way you can expect me to update this post with the results :)
It appears it can be done, however, from the reading I've done the only way is to have either A) Have a 2,043 block memory card (16mb) or it you have a smaller card like me option B) Use Dolphin's save manager to copy the saves from a RAW dump of your card into a emulated 16mb card which can be used in Devolution
I'll have more info on how to do this once I figure it out myself, I'm currently trying to use my raw dump from my 1019 (8mb).
More results later.
Got it!! Coming soon, a section for Backing up your saves for emulated memory card!
Hi,is it possible to save my gamecube save files onto usb? I seem to have misplaced my gamecube memory card......
Yes :) with the basic loader it will automatically set up a emulated memory card, for USB loader GX go into the games settings and enable "DEVOmemcard". Once you start the game it will create a memory card for you.
Devolution's memory card will be generated on USB/apps/gc_devo (the same folder that has all your .dvv files)
As far as I've been able to determine you can only use the emulated memory card from USB.
I have only just recently installed dios mios. I have not yet installed devolution. Does dios mios also emulate memory cards?
Yes. You can also use Devolution and Dios Mios together as well, but the emulated memory cards aren't interchangeable. If you want to use saves from DM's "No More Memory" on Devolution's emulated memory card you'll have to first convert the save file to .GCI, you can them import the .gci save file to the Devolution card using the process detailed in the guide.
Ok,cool, so you're saying that Dios Mios also has its own emulated memory card? Does this memcard also function with real nand? I do not have an emulated nand so just need to know?
P.s. Tx for all the quick replies!
Neither Devolution nor Dios Mios emulated memory card will actually save to the systems real NAND but aside from that they will function with real NAND. You do not need Emulated NAND to use them though.
What I mean is they will only be able to save to an external device (Devolution saves to USB, I'm not sure about DM...DM will save to either SD or USB, I can't remember which)
SNES, tx a lot man, will try this out later!
Hi Snes, you are my last hope. How do I emulate the memory card for use with Dios Mios? I have an sd card inserted and the games just freeze when i try and create a save file. Is there a specific file structure I need to use? Maybe a folder i need to create on the sd card? Does it need to be in a specific format?
I know you specialise with Devolution but you seem to know your stuff, please help!
