To start this off I wanted to cheat. Though this is the same cheat you use to be able to do with a turbo controller back in the SNES days. Unfortunately though I have not found a way to do it on the GBA itself. So I went to different measures. Anyway here's how I manage to do it successfully. I own a F2A Advance 256. I do not own a Pro Action Replay or any other cheat device so my next resort is VBA. Well as most know with VBA no matter what settings you choose sometimes the emulator will always make save files 64KB instead of the 128KB that your game is using. Which for me FFVIA (U) uses. In VBA I loaded the game and my current save just at the first save point of Lethe River. I have the Command Settings set to Shortcut and Banon's Pray command set up top. After saving I hop back on the raft and head down the river again. Shortly ahead you come to the point to go left or up and I chose up and then set A to autofire and turned on Speed up Toggle. After several hours I have level 50 party members. At the split I choose to go left instead of up to the very next save point. Save and then exit VBA. Well here's where some may have a problem with the save because for me VBA still saved the game as 64KB. PowerWriter tells me that it won't update the save file on the cart because of the file size difference. The solution is to pad the save file. The easiest way is using dos prompt in this similar method where FFVIA.sav is your save file and FFVIA-C.sav is the output: copy /b FFVIA.sav+FFVIA.sav FFVIA-C.sav You will now have a 128KB save file that PowerWriter will accept and you may go on with your game like you wanted. Please don't flame me because this is for those who wish to use the Lethe River trick just like old times. If you are one who doesn't want to cheat them bypass this thread and ignore it. For me though it's something I always done and I won't change my ways. If other flash cart users do not experience the save file incompatibility as I have then congrats to you. For those that do please try this method and the best of luck to you. Please don't ask me for Pro Action replay or any other cheat codes because I do not have them. Later I might but as of now I'm sorry. Take care.
