PS1 Saved Game off MC to SRM File



  • Hello,

    I have recovered my old PS1 memory cards and can get the game data onto a USB drive using a PS2 with FMCB.

    It does not have a file extension but it looks like it is a binary file. I have tried to use Memcardrex and MemManager but cannot get them to read this file.

    I really want to be able to get my Gran Turismo 2 saved game and play it on my retropie.

    I have tried to search but they all I can find looks as if it comes from a copied MC rather than just the game data.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

    Thanks, Gareth
    p.s this is my first post but I really enjoy the retropie.



  • I ended up working it out myself.

    In MemcardRex under Edit >> Import save, this uploaded the game file.
    Then once I clicked on the game file again under Edit I Export save to an mcs file.

    The mcs has to then be converted to an mcr file which I did using this website http://www.save-editor.com/tools/wse_ps1_save_converter.html

    Then just renamed the mcs file to be an srm as per this guide https://recalbox.gitbook.io/tutorials/playstation-1-psx/convert-.gme-save-game-psx-to-.srm-save-game-for-retroarch.

    I am stoked to have got it to work and hopegulyl if anyone stumbles across this it may help.
