    Ok I have dumped my Pokemon Sapphire save off my game cart, is there any way to fix the Clock problem? (Incorrect time, NOT Dry-battery)

    I know Nintendo had a patch for it in Pokemon Colosseum, but I don't feel like paying anything to rent it or buy it, and nobody I know owns the game.

    No, not that I know of. I think there might be like, a trainer patch that allows you to change the time, but thats about it. I can't think of anything off hand.

    GBATA is supposed to fix it. Try googling it, or look for it in the Downloads section.

    GBATA fixes the dry battery issue, not the incorrect time error.


    Edit: Actually, I'm not totally certain that GBATA doesn't fix the incorrect time error, but I've never heard that it does.

    This is what it said in the readme file.


    "10.Clock fix
    With this funtion you can make the Real Time Clock runs during play time, it is for the hardware that doesn't support RTC.
    Note: It is for Pokemon sapphire & ruby series only"



    Not sure what that exactly means, but...

    Edit: Incorrect time? All you have to do is go your house, go into your room and walk up to your clock and press A and change it how you see fit.

    That means that it will fix the dry battery error and make the clock run while the game is running (it won't run while the game is off like the real game pak will though).
