Shenmue II Save help.

Post#1 » Thu Jan 26, 2012 8:44 pm

Hey guys!

I was originally playing an awesome copy of Shenmue II I found on Snesrama that stated it only worked with emulators "since the file size of each disc was around 1gb" in Nulldc. I think I'm kind of far in disc 3 (I'm at the part where you have to get into street fights I think ha ha) anyway I decided to start playing on my DC again like it was meant to be played on especially sinc eI have it hooked up through component via that little PC to Component box. Now my problem is I copied my Nulldc saves to my SDcard loaded that up in my DC via Dreamshell copied them over to my VMU loaded up Shenmue II disc 3 I go to continue and it says there are no available files. I'm not sure why? I tried it again in Nulldc using the same file. Here is my entire Nulldc vmu file. You can extract the VMU via VMUexplorer. Can anyone please help? Maybe the save file has to be converted though I'm sure why. I'm not sure of the copy I'm using either of Shenmue II. I think it's Shenmuedojo's 80mm CD-r version. Anyway I would just hate to start the game over as it's a pretty long game though I know what to do on disc 1 up to where I'm at though some parts where hard on the first two discs. Anyway sorry for the long question please help I'm desperate LOL!!

You'll need a VMI/VMS file to copy to your memory card. I'm not sure if you can get those out of null or not..

Find a memory card manager type disc and put that file on there. I can't recommend one nor do I know how to do it, but I do know of another way. It's a bit roundabout, but I could take one of the DC web browsers and make a fast CDI image you could burn to get the file off there. You won't need to have an internet connection to do it. I'll just put the file on the disc and direct the HTML code to the file.

Sure man if you could do that I'd appreciate it! do you think it would work? Because I've copied the file over via Dreamshell and my SDcard but disc 3 of Shenmue II just refuses to find a save file :(

I'm really not sure. It doesn't sound promising if you've done that stuff. Send me an email at revivedcproject@gmail.com so I remember to do this for you some time.

Yeah, I'm not sure what could be the problem. I'll keep looking into it in the meantime. I appreciate you doing that for me it might work!

I hate to bump such an old thread. But I'm still trying to get this to work. I've tried using VMU Explorer to export my Shenmue 2 saves from my Nulldc VMU.bin the saves are in VMI format (I think that's a raw format for the DC VMU) I copied them to a blank VMU via Dreamshell form my SD card I load up the DC without a disc to check if the files are on the VMU and they are. But still Shenmue 2 says (no files avaliable) under the continue. I'm not sure what problem is :( I really want to play Shenmue 2 on my DC instead of Nulldc as much as I love Nulldc it sucks playing Shenmue 2 with the graphical glitches :( like so Image LOL
