VisualBoy Advance Save Problems

Recommended Posts

I am a newbie at everything around here, from this site to the whole emulation thing. Haldrie and Agozer, please don't get mad at me for being as stupid as I am! It looks like people haven't been here in a long time, especially Haldrie... but I've done pretty much everything that people have said to do on here, and none of it has worked.

I'm trying to save in-game for Pokemon FireRed. Auto IPS patching is on. I tried the vba-over.ini file, but realized you don't need that if you are only going to play one game, and Pokemon FireRed is the only game that I will play. Please don't tell me to read something that someone has said already, because I've read the whole thread a couple times in the last couple of days (I know, I'm desperate). Right now, I am on Cinnibar Island, almost to the Elite Four, and I wanted to trade with someone. That's when I realized that I have been saving it wrong (save states).

I also tried cybervegeto22's thing on the top of page 12. But of course, even that didn't work for me. So, please reply back to me... :clapping:

In order to get in-game saving to work, you need to set the correct savetype and start a new game. If you switch the savetype mid-game, in-game saving will not work, even if the correct savetype is set. That's from my experience anyway, but I could be wrong.

 

If Haldrie shows up, he can clarify this.

 

P.S. There's really nothing you can do, since trading relies on the in-game save data being present.

Are you using vba-over.ini settings, or have you manually set the emulator to use Flash 128k? Also, which build of VBA?

How about giving VBA-M a try, and if manual settings don't work, then use vba-over.ini.

Hey. Now I haven't read EVERY post here but I've done my share of skimming. I have a problem saving Pokemon FireRed. It starts saving then says "Saving error. Please exchange the backup memory." What does that mean and how do I fix it..? I just really want to be able to have in-game saves.. Any help will be appreciated =3

The answer just might reveal itself to you if you'd take the time to read the first post in this entire topic thoroughly.
