I'm creating this topic to ask about if there's some kind of save manager program to backup and restore saves from the data bank files of PC Engine emulators.
I'm asking about it because I'm documenting various options to backup and to manage saves from various console systems, and I saw the PC Engine lacks a good save manager.
The only save manager program I found was the METOOL, who is an old DOS program from 2000's who reads data bank files from the old Magic Engine's .RAM format, TurboEngine's .BRM format, and the Hu-Go!'s .DAT format. This program can read the file's contents, extract individual saves to a .SAV file, and restore the backup to the data bank file again.
The MeTool is a good try, but it's dated because it's a DOS program (it's not a big problem), and it don't have support for the newest Magic Engine's BACKUP.IDX + BACKUP.DAT format.
So, I'm asking if already exist a save manager program who can reads data bank files from PC Engine emulators in both .RAW/.BRM/.DAT data bank files, and .IDX+.DAT data bank file.
Thanks for the attention.
