    I started playing this game and I thought i'd saved.
    I have a .sav file which would make sense
    but load game only loads .sgm's and import battery file doesn't load anything...
    Is there anything I can do?

    If there was help to give, I'd have given it.

    There are loads of these Chinese hacked Pokemon games ... Black, Orange, Shiny Gold, Purple ... the list is huge ... and they are all badly done, with many problems.

    I've Found the problem, you will need to make the save exactly 64kilobytes. To do that open it with a hex editor and trim it to 64kilobytes

    Hang on, sorry i think i might have stuffed up. If you saved the game within VBA and the .sav was 128killobytes just make sure the .sav and .gba are in the same dir and have the same filename e.g.
    GBA file: PkMnShinyGold.gba
    SAV file: PkMnShinyGold.sav
    Then just load the game like you would on a normal GBA, not through VBA itself but by using the in game 'Continue' option at the menu after the 'Start' screen.
