    i am currently playing Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced for the GBA on my DS
    i have ran the GBA game through the "supercard" program and it worked...
    i could play and do all stuff i should be able to do...

    except for a proper in game save...
    i choose the save funtion and this comes out
    "error in backup memory"

    so the only means of saving is a "Real Time Save"
    which i find quite dificult to do considering all the buttons to press

    any ideas to what the problem may be?

    I assume you're having a problem with the SRAM save with SuperCard. L+R+Start+A is it will bring up a save option. But that will not work if you're using a SC Lite with 1.7 firmware.

    You'll need to find a program that saves the SRAM to a file on your SD card. I'll try and find it and report back.

    If you aren't having this problem, then I guess I just don't understand what's wrong.

    You don't say which supercard you are using, but the L+R+Select+A key press definitly works on a Supercard SD just fine.

    (Where is everyone, come on wake up this one's easy [​IMG] )
    FF Tactics Advance needs to be patched to save properly on flashcarts.
    Patches here: http://bubbz.pocketheaven.com/?system=gba&section=patch . There are 3 patches, use the one that matches the region of the game you're playing (USA or Europe I presume).

    If you don't already have a patching program, IPSWin is a nice, simple one to use.
