    Hello, New here..

    I have a HUGE problem [​IMG]
    I was trying to catch the Roaming Pokemon Entei. I did this by Using Wobbuffet with it's shadow tag ability..
    However, when Wobbuffet fainted, I didn't want to go to the PokeCenter so I just used the Soft-Reset (SELECT+START+R+B)
    I did this succesful many times, Now.. There was this annoying crap where it froze at the resetting..

    So I just turned my DS off, turned it back on, Loaded up the game..
    Blue screen.. I was like: "Oh, It will just revert to my previous save.." Little problem here,
    It said: "The Save file will be erased due to corruption or damage."

    I'M NOT USING ACTION REPLAY.

    [​IMG], 44 hours for nothing?!
    I had so many things [​IMG] And now I must start all over?
    Please tell me there's another way to solve this.. The weird thing is.. How would the save get corrupted? If I didn't save? Just after a Soft-Reset?

    I'll include the .sav file in this post..
    http://www.mediafire.com/?di2myuwqjzh
    (It even loads up in Pokesav?) :S

    Thanks in advance..

    EDIT: I notice that in No$Gba the filesize of the .sav gets cut to 162 kb?! Something to do with That compressed? I changed it to RAW now..

    Did you get your game at the release date or less than a week later? In the Netherlands there was a bug on the pokémon cartridges confirmed that will erase your save.

    Ah ok, you mean 8mbit right?
    That's 1Mbyte if I remember correctly..

    Tried to do that, no result [​IMG] It didn't work..
    Uhh, Rather weird thing is, EVERYTHING I save now ends up being corrupted..
    I guess a new Region ROM will do because it was released later in (E) than (U)

    Netherlands, currently
    Try getting the clean rom and patching the game again, then replacing the current file in your card with the new one. (if you're using a flash card)

    I found out it was due the Patch.. /topic..

    (I'm using Wood R4 now, which I don't need to patch the game for [​IMG])
