I'm having some trouble with saves on the EZ 3 in 1 expansion with my DSTT.
LOZ - A Link to the Past works out of the box with YSMenu. Saving works in both PSRAM and NOR.
Pokemon Emerald, however, doesn't. It loads in either PSRAM or NOR, but when I try to save, Emerald complains.
Mario Advanced 4 - Mario Bros. 3 tells me my save game is corrupted and doesn't do anything else in both PSRAM and NOR.

I also tried Emerald and Mario with GBA EXPLoader. Emerald is just the same. Mario, on the other hand, will run save just fine with PSRAM, while loading into NOR causes it to hang just before giving me the single or multiplayer options.


Can anyone help me out?

Pokemon Emerald requires RTC patching, unfortunately there is no such patch that works. That means you won't be able to play regaurdless.

Super Mario Adv. 4 requires SRAM patching, The 3in1 doesn't support EEPROM save tyes.

You can use G-Online to look up any game that gives you save errors. Just look at the save type, if it says EEPROM, it means you will have to SRAM patch that game. SRAM patchers can be found in the download section at the top.

If you don't know what to look for in what the save type for a game is, it looks like this:
