    Ok I'm sure we all know by now that Kaura corrupts some games saves, and some of these saves can be saved from corruption if you change them from .sav to .SAV. But this doesn't always work. Like for me, I'm currently playing the third Phoenix Wright game and it doesn't corrupt it anymore but it only gives me the option for new game. So what I did was go into Sakura and make a real time save of the main menu (with continue and new game). Then I loaded that real time save after loading the game through Kaura and it worked. The continue button showed up and I could play.

    I know it might not work on all games, and it may even be faster to just play the game through Sakura but I thought I'd might as well share this way.

    if you backup the save file, and then even after kaura corrupts the save file, re-copy (overwrite) or delete then re-copy that backup save file and run it again in Kaura, and it will load without any problems

    anyone got any ideas on what's going on with that?? I mean it's just the same save file.

    it works for me..after Kaura corrupted my .sav file, I just copy the same .sav file from my hd to my microsd again and it works fine....maybe it only works on some games

    I think the RTS "trick" wont work if the game has a 3D menu or something that requires some extra computing power.

    I will give this game a try later and see if the sav works in Kaura or not...

    by the way, is the third Phoenix Wright game
    Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations
    or
    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice for All ??

    oh yeah Justice for All just came out today [​IMG] ( oh it's for wiiware)

    Update: I've tried Trails and Tribulations (U), save the game after 1 chapter then run it in Kaura and it didn't even corrupt my lower case .sav save file.
