    So yesterday I played Golden Sun on my 3ds (as a cia file) and I couldn't save my game, because the game was unable to detect backup memory. On Virtual Console it's impossible to create any savestates, so is there a way to fix this problem?

    As of I know, no. Some games work with saving (Mother 3, Super Mario Advance 2) but games like Pokémon don't save. I hope someone finds a fix for this.

    There are fixes for these things, usually. There's fixes for Pokemon, for example. Did you make the ISO yourself or download it off the web?

    I made mine myself, how would I play Pokémon? I would love to play Fire Red and being able to save.

    It's probably an unsupported save-type. There'd need to be an official VC release with the same type to inject to. In the mean time, you can try https://github.com/mgba-emu/mgba/releases - it's not quite full speed yet, but it's more convenient if you install it as a cia and if you use frame skipping, you hardly notice the difference.

    You can either download CIAs from the ISO or Chaos sites (I have a thread on both sites ;)) or there's a fix documented here. (I believe this is the right link?)

    The link is right, but it doesn't work for the GS Games, because the string "D0 88 8D 83 42" isn't in the game :/

    I have a thread over on those sites that has FireRed.
    And so do plenty of others, too. There is a search bar for a reason.

    Huh... I made my own Golden Sun and Golden Sun 2 CIAs and at least the first is working flawlessly. I haven't played the second yet.

    If you care, I uploaded those in some ISO site along with other VC games. Feel free to download them and see if they work for you.

    I was comparing the search functions of the sites to more well known sites

    GBATemp is Ask.com
    Yahoo isn't bad (Chaotic Iso)
