That was done on purpose by EZ-Flash as a bandage for the shoddy implementation of saving.
Seriously, I would rather wait a few seconds on boot than risk SD card corruption when I save games, but I digress.
Basically, make backups often, and wait a few seconds after your game's save behavior and you should be good for the most part, but even that's not a bulletproof solution. :/

But I am not saying that doesnt save...it saves! It is only that the configuration that you do on the emulator to get the palette colors or select if its a Super GameBoy or a regular one doesnt save and you have to config everytime you load any game

Yeah, the games save, but the configurations do not.

Yeah, that's part of the default firmware, not the modifications done by Sterophonick.

Hi everyone, I tried to execute a few games on the Wonderswan emulator and this not boots, it is normal? (Digimon BS 1.5 and One Piece Swan Colosseum)

The WonderSwan emulator can boot some homebrew games and demos, but games are unfortunately unplayable. :/

I suspected it, Wonderswan is a relatively powerful machine for gba, I thought it would be like NeoGeo pocket that works badly but at least I could see it the games.

Thanks again for your cfw!

Is there any chance of you adding functionality for custom skins/splash screens with this, if it doesn't have it already?

There is a chance that someone might make a tool for it, but I am not confident enough in my coding skills to make a Windows tool to allow for skinning. :/

The best way to skin it is to recompile the theme using the source code available on GitHub.

8k of memory isn't very much to work with bud
Don't see what the memory has to do with it. An external Windows/Mac/Linux skinner will work perfectly fine. That condescending tone isn't very nice either. No reason for it.

That's a shame, thanks anyway though! I don't want to mess it up and potentially brick my flashcart, so maybe someone will make one in the future.
