    I've been trecking through mother 3 (the fan translation of course) and I just so recently decided to upgrade my VisualBoyAdvanced version from 1.8.0 beta to 1.8.0 beta-3 and my saves/battery aren't loading up, and I tried the old version, not loading up on them either, nor the VBA-M 756 or whatever the newest one is.

    Can someone help me please? Am I loading it wrong SOMEHOW? Or whats going on?

    Your save files Mother 3 (U-Translation).sav and Mother 3 (U-Translation)2.sav are both blank saves which means they
    wont work, but Mother 3 (U-Translation).sa1 works fine.

    You are on Chapter 4, Tazmily Village.

    Thank you, but it doesn't load on VBA 1.8.0 beta 3, it comes up as if it was blank.

    I tested Mother 3 (U-Translation).sa1 with VBA 1.8.0 beta 3 and it worked.

    Rename your Mother 3 rom to Mother 3.gba and Mother 3 (U-Translation).sa1 to Mother 3.sav and then it should work.

    OK, try this load up mother3 in VBA then select "File/Import/Battery file" then in "File name" type *.* then select your Mother 3 (U-Translation).sa1 save, that's how I got it to work.
