Hello again everyone, as Agozer said and as noted several times in the first post it helps if you read everthing in every post as I made all kinds of changes here and there and added little notes to avoid having to competely rewrite the first post. Plans to reorganize all of the information here into a simple web page for everyone to be able to understand are being worked on but it may be some time before I get it up and ready for everyone to view.
The vba-over.ini file is just a simple text file created with Notepad with a .ini file extention. These files were used with Windows 3.1 and have become popular in the emulation community as they are easy to create and modify. As posted near the end of the first post the legend for everything that is in the code box above it is:
[????]=The four character "Game Code". This can be found by choosing "Rom Information" from the file menu of VisualBoy Advance. This code must match the game you will use it for or the setting will not work. Make sure that the codes above match the rom you are using if these setting do not seem to work.
rtcEnabled=Real Time Clock <0 for false, anything else for true>
flashSize=Flash Memory Size <65536 (64K) or 131072 (128K)>
saveType=Save Type <0 for automatic, 1 for EEPROM, 2 for SRAM, 3 for Flash or 4 for EEPROM+Sensor>
Changing to 1.6 is one of the many changes that I made by making the second post which is dedicated to the DBZ games. Using the vba-over.ini file like with the Pokemon games now fixes the save problems. You can copy and paste the test in the code box in my second post into notepad and save it as "vba-over.ini". Note that you must include the quotes or notepad will still add .txt at the end of the file and VBA will not read it.
The text in the code boxes in for the U versions of the games listed in them so if you have the same game but for a different region they you will have to change the game code with the one that matches the rom you have. VBA only reads the game code not the game name. The game name is only added for reference when editing the .ini file.
