NES/GB saving
« on: March 09, 2005, 02:30:44 AM »
Anytime I save (or save state) on an NES/GB rom, it always saves the state to the RAM.  Of course, this means after leaving my GBA off for a few minutes, it wipes the RAM and I lose all my saves.  Worse yet, I can't transfer the saves to the CF card.  Is it even possible to transfer them?

You have to save via Save State only, as saving normally in a GB/NES game will not save to your CF card.  Then, press LT + RT + SELECT + A, make sure "Yes" is highlighted in red, and press A.  That will save the save state(s) to your CF card.

Also, keep in mind that in order to save to your CF card, a .sav file has to be there to save into.  So copy a blank .sav file from a GBA ROM (one that is 64 KB in size, preferrably) to the same directory as the GB/NES ROM, and rename the save file to match the ROM (example:  Tetris.nes is the ROM, so Tetris.sav would be the save file).
