Hello everybody, To start I apologize profusely if this problem already has a solution somewhere on this particular forum, but I couldn't find the direct answer I was looking for so I thought it may be easier to simply describe my problem and perhaps then somebody could help me troubleshoot. First of all, some background information: I own two DS Lites. I own and operate an Acekard2i. I have a 3-in-1 EZ-flash as a slot-2 solution. I am running under AKAIO. I have SRAM patched the rom I'm having trouble with. With that in mind, allow me to explain. Right now I'm playing Pokemon HeartGold (I OWN THE ORIGINAL COPY). Recently I've acquired an Acekard2i and a 3-in-1 EZ-Flash solution. On my acekard2i in my GBA Folder, I have pokemon FireRed, which is compatible with HeartGold to trade via palpark. I decided that I wanted to download a valid .sav file on the internet with a complete pokedex (owning all of the pokemon) for my backup of Pokemon FireRed, so I could then trade them to my HeartGold via palpark. I want to do this so I can own some of the poke'mon you just can't find on HeartGold. Since I own two DS systems, I wanted to put my authentic copy of HeartGold in to one DS lite, and my acekard2i (with FireRed) and my 3-in1 EZ flash in to the other. This way I believe I could make the trade. Here is my problem: When I copy the .sav file on to my acekard2i and boot up Pokemon FireRed, it doesn't read the save file I've planted for it. Instead, it gives me a spiel about my battery running dry, that I can still play the game but certain time-based events will no longer be present. After this spiel, it gives me two options: NEW GAME and OPTIONS. Now then, I've patched the game with the latest version of gbata and I have the .sav file named exactly the same as the .gba file, but no matter what I do, it just won't read the dang file. I can save the game and any other gba game, but I can't download and copy it on to my acekard2i and have it read the .sav file for some reason. Bottom-of-the-line, I'd like to know WHY I can't download and copy a FireRed .sav file on to my acekard2i and have the game recognize it, and if anybody knows how to fix this problem. Can somebody give me any ideas? If you need any further information, please let me know. Thanks in advance!
