    ARDS ME (*.DUC) to *.SAV (and back) Converter (Updated to Version 1.2.5!!!)

    Hi!
    This program allows you to convert between *.DUC and *.SAV files, using a custom Game Name, Save Name and Save Description.

    Please make sure you have the .NET framework (3.5) installed!!

    Changes List:
    Spoiler

    Version 1.2.5 Changes:

    • Smaller converter file size.
    • Improved input checking (hopefully wont produce as many errors as previous releases)

    Great job Matt! It's always nice to have more developers join us.

    If you don't mind, I'd like to see that DUC file format myself... with your permission, I could add it to my code library, giving you full credit of course.

    Sure! I've attached a file containing what I've found

    DUC_Structure.txt

    Edit: re-uploaded file with the name "DUC_Structure.txt".

    I tested the *.sav to *.duc, and it produced an invalid file (0 Bytes), then closed, when I typed in "Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2" as the game name.

    I tried again, and it had a message, then it closed.

    Try adding a console.readline statement after it writes to the console, if this is written in VB.

    Re: ARDS ME (*.DUC) to *.SAV (and back) Converter

    Hmm, odd, the only reason for this is the 23 character limit for the game name. I've got an update ready, so I'll add a readme file describing character limits.

    Edit: I've updated it to version 1.1, theres a fix list in my main post.

    Perhaps you could also truncate the input string to 23 characters?
