Hey all!

I was doing a playthrough of Final Fantasy Adventure and everything was going fine (in terms of saving). However the other day when I booted up to begin playing my save was entirely gone. Anyone else experience this issue and perhaps know how to remedy it?

After u saved did u reboot and let the Jr Wright back the save to the SD card?

I wouldn't use ezflash omega or jr. I keep reading about people's saves going missing. get an everdrive for about twice the price, and your saves will be safe.

That's an option if down the road this issue isn't solved in a future firmware update. I'm just checking to see if something can be done now or not.

Wait 5-10 sec then power off then back on or hit the flashcarts switch to reset

OK, so slowly starting to figure this thing out. Turns out every time I saw "micro sd initial OK" I wasn't waiting long enough and I thought my cart was frozen so I'd reset. Turns out that it was trying to make a "SAVER" folder during this process?

Is the way it works that when I "save" in a game, it doesn't actually write to the SD card? It must hold it in some temp.memory area and then when I turn the console off and then on again (or hit the reset button) it then saves it to the SD card?

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
