    you'll have to change the save type in the NO$GBA configuration screen.

    press F11 when running your Platinum ROM and change the save type in the "NDS Cartridge Backup Media", first column, sixth line. use EEPROM 64K. reboot the emulator.

    [EDIT] of course, don't forget to save the changes in the Options menu.

    you must copy your save to the /BATTERY folder (same directory as your NO$GBA.EXE).

    if you want to start a new game, just keep playing and saving like in a normal cartridge. your save will be stored in that same folder.

    The correct save type is Flash 512Kb, not Eeprom 64Kb...

    Did you check and see if the two files (your game and save file) name match? Also, get rid off any special characters in the file name.

    when you say special characters, do you mean like an "e" with an accent mark?

    Well, you can try importing your save to DeSmuME, then save your game there. Afterwards, export the save as no$gba format to your no$gba's battery folder.

    If you want load your .sav you will need special No$GBA build - WinDS PRO
