I doubt this is mGBA's fault because this also happens in a 2004 version of VisualBoyAdvance and the current VBA-M release, even with vba-over.ini present and modified to account for the three Donkey Kong Country GBA games. I'm just trying to find answers why certain *.sps files don't take effect. I've had some successes and some failures with this import feature. I am having issues importing a GameShark Save for Donkey Kong Country 3 from GameFAQs. I go to the file select screen in-game after importing and I see no 101% saves. All slots are blank. Is there something wrong with the decoding algorithm in all three GBA emulators or are saves a pain in the butt (which has been an issue from the start of GBA emulation)?

The save looks valid. I'll investigate at some point.

Would you like to know what other GameShark saves I tried? It isn't unique to Donkey Kong Country GBA game saves.

Once the nightlies section of downloads updates on your website, I hope to test this for myself. It's still on a4faf9f. Thanks for the update.

That's odd. I'll look into why.

I think it's now fixed because it is now 0f356a9 instead of a4faf9f. I can confirm that the same successfully imported! Thanks for the bugfix!
