I bought Pokemon Emerald used from my local Game Crazy, and was about to start a new game, I thought I'd look at the previous owner's stats before I start a new one... the previous owner has 223 hours of game play, atleast 4 ubers level 100 (his starter + a few others). I'm not sure how good they are... I want to save his work but I wanna play a new game... not sure what I should do. Kinda an ethical question... kinda a "should I remove someone's hard work and make room for mine".

Think of it this way, if you don't wipe the game then you've officially just bought a game that has already been beaten.

Now I don't know about you, but I play games to, well, play them.

Well if he sold it, he just didn't care about it anymore, so erase it. Or, it was stolen from him and now he's crying and searching for his pokémons and you are about to delete 223 hours of his life...

On a side note in the original blue I think the timer reseted after 255 hours, mine is at 250. I also owned all the pokemons in my boxes, 1 copy of each, even the 9 starter forms... this took so much time. R&B were the best.

DO you have a flash cart linker. Cause with the EZ linkers you can backup save games from GBA. I suggest if u can back it up do so, then start your own game.

If you have a friend with a pokemon game and a link cable, just transfer some of the better pokemon and items to him, then restart your game. If he's nice maybe he will trade them back

Yeah, although I'm not sure if you can restore save files back on to an original cart (I doubt it) try and back the save file up with a flashcart linker. Even better if you're really worried about it, back up the game and then put it on to a flashcart. This way it's legal because you own the dumped game and also the game you bought will be untouched so you can preserve the game file.

Writing and backing up saves to/from original GBA cartridges has worked fine for me using my linker unless they used EEPROM save and since Pokémon Emerald uses Flash1M_v103 (according to GBArms) it should work fine for you too.

    i always do hours of research before i buy anything because half the crap you see gets bad reviews especially when it's on sale, stuff is usually on sale because it was a bad deal at full price and nobody was buying it

    Just, in general, sound bars are a scam.
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    An actual decent to good sound bar is going to be as expensive as a lower end home theater in a box system with less functionality and a poorer sound stage
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which is to say you're spending so much money to still have 100% of the sound come from the bottom of the TV.

    You really can't judge based on video reviews as it's not the pure sound coming from it
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    So any product reviewer can just say spend $200 more on this cause it sounds better be your own judge

    Plus stores have that 30 day return thing if you're not happy with it return it it shouldn't need to be a huge deal lol

    I gotta sit down for a bit and play around with the new surround receiver I bought

    Does everything I need it to however it's got some peculiarities that either I'm just being big dumb and not understanding right, or are a complete dealbreaker

    I'd love to own a good klipsch or Yamaha receiver but I don't really need to spend $200+ on a receiver living in a single bedroom apartment

    Funny that, I actually just replaced a Yamaha receiver, replaced it with a manufacturer refurbished Denon unit
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Only reason for replacing is that the Yamaha unit was like 8 years old and didn't support 4k video

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    Denon makes good shit

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And now that I think of it, only a single device that's plugged into it is even capable of outputting a 4k signal anyway lmfao
