    I have no idea why your savefiles are getting deleted D: You seem to be the only one who's experiencing that issue and I certainly don't have any code that could result in that. Please try reformatting your sdcard (as fat32) and then only create the folders and move the roms over using ftpd. (this shouldn't normally be needed but it's the only thing I can think of that might fix your issue)

    Getting savefiles over from other emulators isn't going to work since I don't use the same save-format.

    Soo this has happened to me a few times now and I think its happens more when the app has crashed. Once my roms were deleted too and once when quitting a game using the home button it messed up the application and I had to re copy it over.

    I have no idea whatsoever what might be causing it but I'm reasonably sure that it's not caused by the homebrew itself. So maybe a bug in the cfw/homebrew-launcher/libnx.
    Savefiles vanishing might be something that maybe could've been related to the emulator but the only place where it's opening the roms is right in the beginning where the emulator simply reads the file and then closes it.

    I haven't had any actual savegames disappear, but I've had savestates disappear frequently. Are you guys talking about savestates or actual save files?

    Hey just wanted to chime in that I'm having an issue today since updating to v8 with my saves as well. Was playing pokemon emerald the past couple days and now it's in game save is deleted as it shows "new game" when running it. The odd part is my .sav file is still there in the folder but it's just not using it. Tried a few other games and most of them still have their saves in tact and some don't anymore. Sucks can't continue any games with this bug as losing save files is too rage inducing haha.

    Hm that sounds like an issue with the emulator :/. Could you please send me one of those broken .sav-files?

    Have you made sure you're pressing start and not A? I'm unsure how the menu works in Emerald, but with FireRed whenever I pressed A on the main menu it would queue a new save file, but if you pressed Start it would open the menu where you could select your Pokémon save file.

    I'm sure you know this, but it doesn't hurt to ask. :P

    Yep I've always pressed start. No idea why this is happening if the .sav is still in there :(

    Make sure you're not using the savestates as well as that could cause issues with the save file.

    (The + and R feature.)

    EDIT: Turns out my save file was gone as well once I launched V8.5
    Could using an updated version delete your savefile?

    Doesn't matter anyways, should be expected. :P

    My saved for Link to the past was delete today too once i used v8.5. The save file is there. But it was overwritten with an empty save. I had no problem with the others save files. I did do a backup just in case.

    If anyone is experiencing the save-issue again please upload the broken .sav file here so that I can look into what's happening.

    Apparently the internal battery problem can be fixed quite easily for Ruby and Sapphire, I know it's not a major concern but I'm hoping every little thing helps.

    Also not sure if this fix applies to the specific emulator or if it's universal, but I'm hoping it's the latter.

    Hey, i was able to get the emulator on my switch (running version 5.0.2)
    but whenever i open the emulator, it shows a message "Failed to open dir!"
    I do not know what is the problem, since i have everything fine, my direct to my roms is sd/Switch/GBA/roms/gba
    and GBA folder is where the .nro file is in, i tried v7 and v8 and nothing happened... still the same thing

    The proper path for the ROMs is sd:/switch/roms/gba - your path is wrong.

    Also, your NRO file needs to be under sd:/switch - not an extra GBA folder.

    @jakibaki Do you know the issue with some games not being able to save? There’s thread for games being tested on your emulator and they’re a lot of games playable just not having the ability to save

    I pushed another update which should hopefully fix the savegame vanishing issue (reverted it to the way saving was detected in v7).

    EDIT: Oops I just experienced a crash again D: Don't download this version yet!
    EDIT2: Fixed! I accidentally compiled with an outdated libnx again...
