    I can't figure out (or find topics here, although I'm sure there are some) that explain how to make a GBA game save, actually save. Can anyone fill me in?

    Cheers.

    make a
    GBA_SAVE ,GBA_SIGN folder on the ROOT of the mem card

    enable gba in the setting menu

    load your GBA game
    play you gba game
    when done (after you save)
    power off the DS
    when you power back on and load the CycloDS, it should copy the save file in the 3-in-1 sram to the GBA_SAVE folder as a sav file

    So it turns out that doesn't seem to work. I'm using 1.5b3....I enable "GBA Support Beta," and made the 2 directories. I'm trying to use Zelda, and super mario advance 2, and when i save in those games and then power off, the progress is lost next time. Also, i should note, that I see a zelda save file in GBA_SAVES, but I guess it isn't working?

    Anything else, or stuff I may be forgetting?

    Do those games use 1Mb saves? The Cyclo's beta GBA support doesn't support 1Mb saves yet.

    Not sure, haven't tried it myself. Might as well go ahead and try ExpLoader and see if it would work.
