    So, i got this in a trade from Shlupi, and it seems to work great. Problem is with Pokemon Emerald it keeps telling me that the save file is corrupt, and the previous save will be loaded. It saves, loads, and keeps track of the RTC just fine. It just gives me this warning every time I start Emerald. Is there some way to fix this, or does it just need to be ignored? Please, and thank you.

    ItThe rom was likely patch incorrectly.

    Pokemon emerald doesn't require any patching on a RTC capable flashcart.

    Worth a shot. I will try a clean rom.

    The ultra has RTC, which he has.

    Clean Rom won't even load. Just gives a white screen. Hmmm, maybe another source.

    desp[ite its claims of being rtc compliant.. I have had little to no luck getting pokemon games running 100% on my f2a ultra.

    Sending the game over from my M3 perfect patched seems to work just fine. It just gives the weird little message. Other than that, the clock, the saves, and the game all work fine. If that's all I have to put up with, I can live with it.

    If you're getting a rom ID of "0000" when loading it into the F2AU flashing software, try this (unofficial) updated database. Read the "ReadMe" file first of course. You'd need a clean rom of course for it to recognize it, if it works at all.

    Hadn't gotten back to this for awhile. Used the update you gave Dan, but still no joy on getting clean dumps to work. Emerald, Ruby, or Sapphire.
    All 3 seem to work fine if I use a patched version of the game, it just gives me the annoying message every time I start the game. Irritating, but no sure what i can do.
