Hello there, I hope this is in the right place.

Recently I've been playing through Pokemon Leaf Green on my M3DS Real (using the GBA expansion), and had a saved game on the card which was working perfectly.
I have a utility on my M3 that allows me to save backup copies of actual GBA cartridge save files, which I use to copy my physical cartridge saves to file (.sav), play them on emulator, save changes, and then re-upload them to the cartridge.

I used this utility to save a backup of my Fire Red catridge's save, but then found that doing so had somehow corrupted my Leaf Green save (stored on the SD card as well)-now, whenever I try to load the LG save (on the M3 itself, and on both GBA emulators that I have tried), the game states that the save is corrupted, and that it will load the 'previous save'-and then presents me with my extracted FR save (even though the ROM is still Leaf Green, and plays appropriately)

I can only assume that by running the GBA backup utility, the LG save was affected and somehow picked up the FR save. Is there any way at all I can recover the save as it was?

Apologies if this is in the wrong place.


Desperately hopeful,

unless you have a backup of your save, doubt you can make it back to what it was.

next time, backup everything you do

    I'm so pumped, NCAA football video game is back after a 10 year hiatus, coming to SeriesS/X, PS5 in July.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Wish they would let us play the NCAA football 14 on newer xbox, its one of the only games I love and own on disc still, that is not back compatible, bs.

    @BigOnYa My dad recently bought a spare Series X off of me, got game pass, and saw Madden '24 on Game Pass, decided to try it out.

    ...He was a bit taken aback by the 60GB download size. Poor guy's still living in the 90s!

  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    @K3Nv2 He was looking into consoles for his house anyway (for my younger siblings and himself) and I had a spare XSX and Switch I ended up selling him at pretty steep cuts. I would just give them to him, but I did buy them with the intent to sell them... and college is super expensive.
