How To: Gameboy Camera Dump on Mac

Sunday, December 20, 2009
(this write up is aimed toward Mac users who are not running Windows)
(tutorial on using the Mac OSX flasher to get your save file can be found here)

After discovering the Mac OS X flasher existed, I was pumped to not have to boot Windows on my mac anymore. BUT I still needed a means of dumping my camera. So after some gnarly internet digging, I came upon the "gameboy camera .sav to gif animation converter" by http://gieskes.nl 

So all you do is upload your GBcam .sav file (which you read with a programmer using the mac flasher software) Then you will go to this URL http://gieskes.nl/gameboy-camera/sav-converter/ where you can upload your .sav file and choose your setting (setting are pretty self explanatory)



Once you get your animated gif, you can then drag it to your desktop. Now you can open your .gif of all your images in the mac app "Preview"



What "Preview" does it break down your animation into individual images, which you can pick and choose (just drag and drop). You have now successfully "dumped" your cam 100% on a Mac...  ENJOY!

Thanks 4 the info!!! Works fine on Windows, too. (For all of you who were wondering if it works ;) )
Anyone knows about the problem, that the saved .sav files contain corrupt images? I tried to fixed it by using a battery instead of an D/C Converter but I still get them bothering white lines in the Pictures :(
Never the less: Thank you very much for the link...

This doesn't seem to work for me for some reason, everytime i try to upload a .sav it just says error. I'm on a mac, is there any other way to get a converter? Thanks

Yes i'm aware of that but i was just asking if there was an alternative as this site doesn't seem to work anymore?

Thretris said...

No other alternative native to mac as far as I know. It works fine for me still. How are you dumping your save files?

I've written an image dumper in Python, which should be useful for those wanting to learn more about the save structure or not able to access Glieskes's site:
