Isn't there any current tool for emulators that would avoid having to boot that tool?


EDIT: I completely misunderstood that shenhaZ was playing on the console.
Anyway, maybe this has been discussed extensively, and I did not even try it myself, but info around the internet suggest that this should work for NTSC->PAL save conversion on a raw save file/dump:

1. Get an HexEditor (HxD, for example: https://mh-nexus.de/en/downloads.php?product=HxD)
2. Open the VM save file and go to (CTRL+G) offset 18883 and change the 3 bytes to 45 0E 01
3. Next, go to (CTRL+G) offset 18889 and change the byte to 58
4. Save the changes
5. Get and open VMU Explorer (http://bswirl.kitsunet.org/outil/pc/?lg=fr&menu=on)
6. Load your edited VM save, column with CRC16 should appear in red, right-click and select 'Fix CRC'
7. Go to menu 'File > Save VM', click 'Yes'
8. Try loading the new save

I tried similar FAQ http://bswirl.kitsunet.org/vmutool/rele ... _shen2.php
looks like it works only for completed game save, someone mention it in old forum post

It would make little sense to load a savegame that was not complete. Unless you're talking about converting the save to keep playing Shenmue 1 of a different region, in which case I doubt it isn't easily feasible. Maybe I'll look into it and see what it may take to do it.

EDIT: I was so wrong :)
The save scheme seems way more convoluted that I assumed, a single byte is left unchanged and the save won't load on another region, even with proper CRC fix. Must have it's own CRC on top. No luck on my end.
