    Alright so my friend tells me about how great a game Dragon Warrior is. I look into it and it looks like a game series i could get into. I flash* it (Dragon Warrior 1 and 2 for GBC) onto my EZ IV and start playing (i think i used goomba 2.0 or something...cant quite remember but that's what it says in the settings menu). It's great. But as soon as i go to another game, the save file is lost. This happens every time i save unless i ONLY keep opening DW and nothing else.

    Plus the colors are all wrong when i do play, i have to select from batman or metroid or some other equally ridiculous color scheme that looks nothing like the actual GBC port.

    Could anyone point me towards a better emulator (true to actual game colors at least) and/or some tuts? I'm almost entirely sure i did it wrong.

    Thanks


    *When i flash it i set the dropdowns in EZ Client to Flash-Type and 128K bits.

    Goomba 2.0 is very old, and it won't play GBC games. You must be using some version of Goomba Color. Dwedit has been updating Goomba Color a lot lately, you should try one of the new builds. You can get it from his website: http://www.dwedit.org/gba/goombacolor.php

    GBA homebrew apps use 512kbit SRAM saves BTW.

    If you have a DS, you could also try Lameboy. It works quite well, and most GBC games run at or near full speed in the most recent version. You can get it here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=2246


    p.s. Don't ask for roms, or where or how to find roms. It's against The Rules.

    And not to undermine destructobot but

    If you read goomba's help file it say's to set the emulator's save type to Flash_Type 128K

    Tested with DWM 1 And saved perfectly even after turning the card off (after i let the card write the save file obviously [​IMG] )
