    Can a kind DSTWO owner do me a favor and try these:
    • Playing these Pokemon games - 1)Ruby/Sapphire, 2)Emerald, 3)FireRed/LeafGreen - note that I want you to test 3 games and I want Emerald to be tested as well as it's the most problematic one when it comes to saving and emulation.
    • Testing the real time events (or at least if it gives you the Internal Battery error message) in R/S/E
    • Of course, stability test
    • Saving without losing the save file after reboot
    I would hugely appreciate the results for this as this is a huge factor on my decision to purchase a DSTWO. I'm sure this will benefit others too. Thanks!

    Logically the emulator saves .sav files as well, right? [​IMG]

    real time save saves as .rts

    they are all located in the NDSGBA\gamerts folder

    EDIT: i didn't try the actual save function for games because i was using the save state [​IMG]
    EDIT2: sorry about the .sav... it did generated .sav but i am not sure what it is used for

    How about vba compatibility of the .sav files?

    Any people willing to do this? It would be very helpful as I'm thinking the DSTWO is a great flash cart and I just wanna make sure that I'll be able to play said games like I play them on VBA.

    why will nobody test the damn gba emulator pleasse all im asking is for someone to test pokemon games. He doesn't mean the real time save, he means the normal save because what about when you complete the pokemon league? also can someone text a hacked pokemon game?

    Erm, he asked about save files, and GBA emulator does have 32 or something save slots (real time save).

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    The RTC function in the emulator is not implemented, your still going to need to RTC patch any pokemon game that uses RTC, for now unless they add that feature in the future.

    Your still stuck playing emerald on a M3 GEP or the real cart.

    Emerald booted fine but I got the battery ran dry error. The time events won't work according to the message. You have to use save state in order to save.

    Fire Red boots fine, game me a 1m circuit board is missing error so again I could only save with save state.

    Leaf Green runs perfect.

    Ruby boots ok but gives me battery ran dry error. You need to use save state

    Sapphire boots ok but gives me battery ran dry error. You need to use save state

    Other than that these pokemon games booted fine.

    Are you using clean or patched roms? The roms I used are 100% untouched and they refused to load anything past a white screen.

    EDIT:

    Turns out the roms I had were corrupt or something. The new roms I have work fine, so All GBA pokemon games work on DSTWO. There are still RTC issues, though.

    Edit 2:

    Here's an image:

    Sorry for the delayed response (email notif. didn't work). Thanks for all the feedback!

    I just want to know if time-based events work (you can at least try the berry growth system). Thanks!

    Does the GBA emulator make the saves be .sav or .gba.sav?

    It's .sav, and Real Time Save files are Filename_Numer.rts where Number is the save slot number.
