    I just got lameboy 0.12 for my acekard2i flashcart.
    I got it mainly to play:
    LoZ Oracle of Time
    LoZ Oracle of Ages

    But whenever I go to save each one via the games method (not save state) when i turn my ds off its as if i never saved

    is it a lameboy thing? or is there something i forgot to download?

    Press R, then select Save. And remember to always do that before exiting, or else you're gonna do all that stuff over again.

    Lameboy doesn't automatically update the save file (on your SD card) when you save in-game. Most emulators will do this, but Lameboy does not. Simply press X after saving in-game and you'll be good to go. This is not the save-state feature.

    When you save in-game, it's not retained in your microSD card. If you hit the "save" button in the menu when it reads "Save State: None", it should copy the in-game save to your MicroSD card, and it shouldn't make a save state unless you explicitly specify so. (On default settings, pressing X does the same thing)

    It does it fine for me. All I did the first time I tried that is press the touch screen the bring up LameB's menu select "Lameboy" at the top and I just set it to save slot: 0(or which ever one you want). I then just selected save(still on the menu) and when it was done I could save with the games save mechanism. Try that and see if it works for you.

    Yeah, stupid me, I thought the game was saving when it says "saving game" or whatever on the screen. I don't know how many hours I was into Oracle of Ages, but I just lost my save game. Because, after finally dying for the first time, I get the bright idea to just exit without saving and reload the game... turns out I had been relying on a single not permanent save state this whole time. Oh well.

    It's generally considered better form to revive a thread than make a new one.

    It would have been nicer if it had been important as opposed to a personal story.

    I see that you only post relevant and utilitarian things, and never anything flippant or pointlessly insulting.

    Should I describe my posting process? I was going to make a thread asking why Lameboy did not save my game when it appeared it should have. I decided to do a quick google search to see if it was a problem with the Oracle games specifically. I came across this thread and saw that it was rather a slightly obtuse design decision of Lameboy itself. In my frustration for having lost several hours of game time I still wished to post something. I thought it would be better to post in this thread than make a new thread merely to vent. There you go.

    I make scathing comments at people who necro threads myself, but usually only when it's a response clearly ignorant of the original post date (wondering why a certain game not even released at the time hadn't been mentioned), or just extremely irrelevant and/or short.
