I can get it to load save files that I've downloaded. When I try to save, however, it does it instantaneously OR it takes forever. Either way, when I restart, the save file is presumably corrupt (I get a blue screen with some squigglies, and then a new game begins). Are there certain settings I should use when patching the rom? I'm using the SC Micro with 1.7 firmware and the 2.57 software. Thanks for your help. I tried searching the forums for a solution, but wasn't able to hunt one down.
