I also simply want to back up the SRAM based saves. I can use the Gameshark64 to back up some of them, but that thing is buggy and prone to failure. It also can't get at the saves for the WCW games, which I care less about but what if I want to replace a battery for someone else, someone who really cares about their WCW save?

Yeah I've always been saying I think a Retrode that does only backup and restore of saves and promoted as such exclusively would be a huge huge hit, especially in these years where gamers are becoming aware of retro games having dying batteries and many have started replacing them

This is the biggest draw to Retrode for myself and the N64 community I think. I'd love to hear where that firmware went.

A Retrode user just contributed some code that can read GBA/N64 saves - but it hasn't been merged into the firmware yet. We'll have to give it some time to make sure we don't break existing functionality.

2017 bump and progress inquiry

Any luck on the firmware update? Also, has anyone tried to do a Master System backup as well (need it for Phantasy Star!)?

Sorry, nothing has changed since reply #26.

Also, this is not the top item on my list. In the past six months, I often thought about at least trying to merge the simple pieces that work (according to justin89). But I didn't even get close to having time for that.
