how do you keep you saves on gba games? I just got a ez flash 3 in 1 plus and every time i try to play a game the save gets deleted after i turn off my ds, am i doing something wrong, do i need to use a certain setting or something to stop it from deleting my saves? thanks

are you using the akaio 3-in-1 options or gba exploader?

for akaio 1.4:
start > 3-in-1/fas1 > Prompt before Save/Load set to ENABLED

for gba exploader:
in the ini file remove the # before the last line about saving.
the cart will now prompt on boot up to back up your last save. otherwise just follow the on-screen information for what button to push to back up your save.

as for your 3-in-1 assuming the battery works fine, your saves are stored in the sram. the sram is shared between the psram and nor modes. if you flash over a new game before backing up your save, your save file will be overwritten. gba exploader will keep track of what save was last used for each mode, but that does not mean the save is still in sram and can be backed up to your msd.

give those options a try and post back.

No, if you remove it, it will NOT prompt.

the pound symbol is a comment for ini files. taking it out is what makes the line work...

#
# GBA_ExpLoader.ini
#

SaveDir /GBA_SAVE
SignDir /GBA_SIGN
#No_MultiSave ! No Multi Save

so that means i have the wording backwards... either way one or the other works! =)

anything over 16 megs goes to nor and the nor is VERY slow. this has nothing to do with akaio, gba exploader, etc. this is a limitation of the nor speed. psram will take right around 1 min to flash over a 16mb rom.
