Hey everyone. I would like to discuss 2 possible bugs that have come to my attention during the short time that I have had my m3 real Perfect bundle. I was wondering if anyone has experienced any of the following. I will list the details of what I use for each bug, and explain what I am doing when the bug happens. Moving on then. Possible Bug # 1 RE: GBA save game bug M3 Real, Slot 1 M3 GBA Expansion, Slot 2 M3 Sakura 1.34 official english release 8 gig A-Data micro SD When running a GBA Rom for the first time through Sakura (not touchpod, haven't tested that yet), SOME games do not save properly. In other words, doing this: - Turning on DS - Going to GBA Rom folders - Selecting a GBA Rom and launching it Once in the game, when asked to save, some games end up giving you an error. I tested with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1, 2, 3, Super Mario Advance 1, 2, 3, and 4. For the Tony Hawk series, the game says "Saving Failed" when you reach a save point. Not talking about Real Time Save, as I have not yet tested that either. But when you try to save the game regularly, as if it were a GBA cartridge, this error occurs. For the Super Mario series, I believe 3 of them did not even start, saying that the save file is corrupt. So I couldn't even get into the game to try to save it. POSSIBLE FIX FOR BUG #1 I discovered that when launching any GBA Rom for the first time, if I go into the settings for that Rom before launching the game, it creates a save file for that game. Then all I did was launch the game from that screen, without changing any of its settings. All games I tested this on worked perfectly, and saved perfectly as well, including all the Tony Hawk series and Super Mario Advance series that were giving me problems without this method. To ensure that it wasn't a fluke, I plugged in my microsd into my computer, deleted the save games, and tried launching the games again without going into the settings for each game. Once again, the same errors were present when saving (TH games) or loading the game (SMA games). I then went to the settings of each game before launching them, and they started and saved perfectly. Once I did this (going into the settings screen prior to launching the game) and saved the game once, turned off my DS, and turned it back on, I could select that game and launch it regularly without going into the settings screen again. So it only had to be done once, I assume to create a proper save file. Any thoughts/reactions/experiences? Possible Bug # 2 RE: GBA save game disappearance bug M3 Real, Slot 1 GBA Expansion pack, Slot 2 AND 3rd Party Guitar Hero controller, Slot 2 M3 Sakura 1.34 official english release 8 gig A-Data micro SD This bug is a little more complicated, and I don't have a possible fix for it yet. I am still trying to figure out why it happens, and how to prevent it. This will be difficult for me to explain, but I will do my best. And my guess so far for the reason behind it is: something to do with the way gba saves get transferred to the NDS after turning off the DS and turning it back on after a save (catch a breath here). Simply put, this bug occurs when going from a GBA game to a Guitar Hero rom on the NDS. This has happened to me twice so far, and both save games have been lost. Here is what I had done when it happened: - Played a GBA Rom more than once, saved it, turned off ds, played a different game, etc. All saves worked and everything copied to the micro SD, no problems. - Played a DS rom in between GBA Games, no problems with saves, etc. Please note that all this time, the GBA Expansion Pack is in Slot-2 and is never removed After playing problem free with a GBA rom over the course of a few days, loading, saving and loading the rom many times throughout the process without any problems, I did this: - Played Donkey Kong 1 GBA (had been playing for a few days now, saving worked perfectly) - Saved game, turned off DS - Turned DS back on, let Sakura load, turned it off. - Removed GBA Expansion pack, inserted Guitar Hero controller in slot 2 - Played Guitar Hero, saved, no problems. - Removed Guitar Hero controller, inserted GBA expansion pack in slot 2 - Loaded Sakura, went to GBA roms, started same Donkey Kong rom. Here is the twist. My save file in the game has disappeared. And all I see are 3 empty save slots when trying to load a game. But this is where it gets worse; I loaded my microsd on my pc, and the save files are STILL THERE for that game. The save files that are present are the same as any other GBA Rom in the same folder, and while the saved game for Donkey Kong has disappeared, the other GBA Rom saves are fine. To sum up: All save files are there, only DK save game doesn't exist in game because it was the last game I played before playing Guitar Hero. On another day (today), I was playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2. I had been playing this game for about 2 days now, with the saves working perfectly and the game without faults. I saved the game when I was done, turned off my DS and turned it back on. Once Sakura loaded, I turned the DS back off, removed the GBA Expansion pack, inserted the GH Controller and played GH. I saved, turned it off, inserted my GBA Expansion once again, went to my Tony Hawk pro skater 2 rom, started it, and again, no continue option was there for me anymore. Plugged in my microSD, save files are all there for that game, and all other games work. So in conclusion, all games I have played so far and saved have their save files present on the microSD when I plug it into my computer, but DK and THPS:2 do NOT have the in game option to continue with the save file, and both were games I was playing prior to removing the GBA Expansion pack. Phew. I am wondering if anyone is still with me. I know it's a lot of information, but if these bugs do exist, I would love for something to be done about it. Otherwise, I might have a faulty m3, who knows (I hope not). But please, let me know if anyone has come across these bugs, and if so, let's do something about it.
