    I'm using an R4 and the EZ Flash 3-in-1, using 3in1 Expansion Pack Tool V1.8. Also, this is the GBA version of the game, so it's simply GBA emulation, not SNES emulation.

    Whenever I try to play it, it says each one of the game saves are corrupted, then when I try to create a new game file, it says it can't be created because it's corrupted.

    Am I doing something wrong? My other games seem to work fine.

    I don't know if you did anything wrong, but the tool your using is fairly out-of-date... Try Rudolph's ExpLoader 0.57. (Link)

    EDIT: And with ExpLoader, just use clean ROMs. (You probably need to patch them for the 3in1 Tool)

    Hello Saf1

    I have only gotten my EZ-flash V pack with 3in1 pack only yesterday but the 3in1 requires a GBA save patcher

    I had the same prob with testing this out quickly

    The way i solved this is to download "EZ4 Client" for windows, its quite simple to follow open your ROM file
    (.gba) zelda file make sure the "ADD SAVE PATCH" option is checked and then use the "SEND" command button

    you change the path of the sending directory in the config button for example your FLASH CARD "micro/mini SD"

    Ok hope this helps
    Ill get back to you for your replies but gotta head off to work right now catch

    Regards

    Do NOT use the EZ4 Clent if you are using the 3in1 ExpPack Tool or GBA ExpLoader, it will cause lost saves.

    Use GBATA to SRAM patch the roms if you want to keep using the 3in1 ExpPack Tool, or get GBA ExpLoader and use clean roms; it will SRAM patch the roms automatically.

    Sorry I never replied.

    Thank you first poster, that actually fixed my problem. Apparently my program was out of date. I didn't patch anything, just direct drag, drop, and play.

    Do all roms need to be sram patched (unless they are already sram type)?

    If you use GBA Exploder, it handles it for you. It patches all ROMs as it transfers them over to the 3in1

    Yes. As has been stated already, GBA ExpLoader does this automatically, for other loaders you need to do it manually.
