I'm having big troubles with my shiny new freshly-translated Mother 3. I just can't figure this out, and so far I've been unable to find a sufficient solution in any of my searches. First my goal: I want to be able to play Mother 3 on my DS, I don't care if it's attached to the slot-1 device or not - Not would be awesome, but as long as I can play the game on hardware and effing SAVE, I'm solid. Second, my setup: I have an R4 with latest firmware in slot 1, with GBAexpLoader software, plus a GBA folder containing my Mother 3 rom, patched with the new translation. I made a "SAVE" folder as well inside the GBA folder. In slot 2, I have an EZFlash V 3-in-1. Third, my problem: Getting the game to save, or more specifically, to KEEP a save. It'll seem to save no problem. It's when I turn the system off and then boot up the game again to load my save that I run into problems. The title screen will only say "new game" and "sound test". The steps I've taken: Every time I load up GBA ExpLoader, it asks "May I set this Slot2 expansion pack for GBA ExpLoader?" I say "Yes". Into my GBA folder. Down to Mother 3. Switch to NOR Mode. I choose to copy the game to the cart. I choose to start a new save. Twenty damn minutes later... Now I have the option to just run the game, or I can "write SRAM to SAV file", or "Load SAV file to SRAM". I've chosen to write SRAM to SAV file in slot 1. I have a working Mother 3 game in my EZFlash. To my astonishment, I don't even need my R4 to run it. I'm so excited I play it without the R4, I play for a good hour or so, and then save. When I load the game back up, on the title screen, there's no option to continue. Just "new game". So I try to load it through GBAExpLoader. when I go into ExpLoader, the save file doesn't seem to be there. If I run the game from NOR mode, it's the same deal: title screen only has "new game". I know I have all the pieces I need to get this working, but I'm tearing my hair out getting there. Can anyone please just give me a step-by-step on what I need to do to get this thing to save? I think it has something to do with saving PSRAM to SAV data, or loading SAV from PSRAM, or some crap that I'm not getting, not doing, and my trial-and-error thus far has frustrated me to extremes. I have played the beginning of the game, up to the first save, maybe 6 times now. I'm at the end of my rope. Someone please shine a light, I'll appreciate it forever.
