Import .sav file from Gameyob to Goomba Color on Everdrive GBA X5

Hey everyone.  I've spent the last few hours trying to import my Link's Awakening .sav file into Goomba Color on the Everdrive GBA X5 and I'm failing every time.  I've tried using Goomba Save Manager, renaming the .sav to .srm and whatever else I could find online and nothing seems to work.  Is there a way to do this?  I'm dying here.  Thanks in advance!

Re: Import .sav file from Gameyob to Goomba Color on Everdrive GBA X5

You need to use VisualBoyAdvance to get real Game Boy SRAM save files in and out of Goomba Color.

* Run VisualBoyAdvance, load your Goomba ROM, select the game in Goomba Color.
* Press L+R to enter Goomba Color's menu
* Within VisualBoyAdvance, Tools > Memory Viewer
Importing a standard Game Boy battery save file:
* Click the Load... button
* Type in * as your filename and hit enter to allow seeing all files
* Pick the SAV file.  It will usually be 8192 or 32768 bytes large.
* Enter 02038000 into the address
* OK
Exporting a standard Game Boy battery save file:
* Click the Save... button
* Enter 02038000 into the address, and 8000 for the size
* Name your save file with quotes around it, so it won't add a ".dmp" extension.
