    Has anyone, that has Pokemon Platinum and a corrupted/deleted save file used cheats in their game?

    Has anyone had a corrupted/deleted save file and NOT used cheats?

    Just seeing whether the save corruption is a hardware problem or not.

    EDIT: This is including the 1mb save file.

    Sorry, I guess I wasnt clear. I was using an 1mb save file and it still corrupts, although I did use PokeSav and cheats.

    wow that sucks, that means everytime I save I backup? I use to save twice so when it corrupts it doesnt change but then after 3rd gym, my save file got deleted.

    All I did:
    - Cheats
    - Trimmed Rom

    I use cheats, (Fast Egg Hatch, Cloning, and Wild Pokemon Modifier sometimes when I EV train), and I sometimes use PokeSav to back up files for trade, clone without the hassle of cheats. With using those methods, I've pumped in 292 hours without problems on my iTouch DS. Regardless of having a flawless fun, I backup my sav about once every 2-3 days, to be safe.

    If you cheat, you should back up saves frequently. This applies to any game that saves progress.

    i don't really get you [​IMG]
    remember... not all cheats works on all flash card
    furthermore, this game contains a checksum
    so use the cheats wisely

    if would be better if you just use pokesav and start a new game [​IMG]

    The cheats are known to crash on a lot of different flash cards, I know they don't work on the EZ Flash Vi and a number of other cards.

    I have been using the same 512kb save file since I got the game back in September, there is nothing wrong with it having 512kb.

    I use my AK2 with all the cheats in hell! My .sav corrupted once but luckily I back up my entire micro sd frequently.

    I don't think my .sav corruption had anything to do with the cheats, It was a file system error. Thats when my entire card fucked up(and every other .sav corrupted). For the record, I also trimmed the rom.
