The Dezaemon 2 Save Game Manager (D2SGM) allows you to copy Dezaemon 2 save game files from CD/Backup Cartridge/FDD to Backup Cartridge/FDD. It is a homebrew tool for the Sega Saturn (so you need a mod chipped saturn or need to perform the swaptrick, it also works on emulator like SSF), developped by Madroms and based on the sourcecode of the Rockin'B's Save Game Manager (http://www.rockin-b.de
This program has been released for Christmas 2007 and contains 118 games for Dezaemon 2
developped by Athena and released in 1997.
For each game, you can listen to one music sample and watch some screenshots. The D2SGM contains a total of 3032 screenshots/pictures and 178 music samples (about 1 hour and 54 minutes of music!).
Each game has 5 save game slots (named DEZA2___._01 to DEZA2___._05), all of them are the same. Just choose the one you want to copy. They are all recognized by Dezaemon 2 game (DEZA2___._01 = slot 1, and so on).
The D2SGM works on 352x240 resolution, so you need a RGB compatible TV to see all the lines on screen (info taken from the Sega Saturn programming doc). Else, try using the highres mode implemented (704x480 resolution) but I don't know if it resolves the problem.
The D2SGM must work on all Sega Saturn. I only tested it on EUR and JPN saturn with RGB cable on RGB compatible TV, and all works well.
I also made a video to let you see how it works, so don't forget to watch it ;)
