    Can anyone please explain me what the difference is between "Patch"/"Direct Load" of the GBA games.
    When I select "Direct Load" the first time I'll receive a save error when the game wants to save. When I only once use "Patch" it will save. When I use "Direct Load the next time it saves with no problem. When I start the game with patch or with direct load I see different savemoments in the game. Is this because with patch it loads from de .0 file and with direct load it loads direct from the ROM file?
