Does the Carnivore2 SRAM work with Konami Game Master II?

I just got my Carnivore2 the other day, and I'm using it with a Sanyo PHC-23.

I was hoping to use the Konami Game Master II's SRAM to use with Metal Gear 2, but whenever I try to format the SRAM in GM2 it gives me a Format Failed error. Likewise Metal Gear 2 throws an error if I try to save using SRAM. I see now the Carnivore2 documentation only mentions the FMPAC SRAM, not the GM2. Is that the reason why it fails?

I am running the game using the "2 roms at the same time" method mentioned in the documentation. I flashed the GM2 and MG2 ROMs with the supplied RCP presets.

Carnivore2 emulates only FMPAC's SRAM.

Thanks for the reply. Guess it will be passwords after all.
