    hello I have very annoying problems when I play pokemon platinum on my R4DS flash cart.
    When I save, sometimes the game doesn't save at all and I have to save like 5 times every single time i want to save to make sure the game rally saves. And also the pokemon boxes doesn't work, or at least not anymore, first it worked perfectly but now (over 30hours in the game) it just deletes all new pokemon I put there and only two of my old pokemon are left in the box...
    And the most irritating prolem is that when I recently beat the elite four and the champion, the screen turns black after the credits and it doesn't save so I cant progress any longer!
    Does anyone have any similiar problems and does anyone know what could be wrong?

    I have firmware 1.18 which I think is the latest, and I have tried several different ROMs both european and American versions and other people using the same ROMS as i do doesn't get those probems and I haven't used any hacks or pokesav or anything.

    Please help me [​IMG]

    hmm, try re-downloading the ROM (whether you use U or E), and put it in your flash cart with your previous SAV.. not sure, my pkmn plat works fine

    I've done that several times and it still has the same problems... Im starting to think that something might be wrong with the save-file... Does any1 know anything about that?

    Ok so I did some looking around I found out that platinum uses savefiles that are 1024kb instead of 512kb and that you have to convert your savefile... but how do I do that? need help.. I hope that this is the problem or else I don't know what I should do...

    As MurtenTK said, use YSMenu instead by following THIS guide . Then download the custom savlib file from HERE and finally use THIS to increase the size of your Pokemon save file.
