I am having a strange problem using Sakura 1.42 to load GBA games. It appears to load the games correctly but my save is always lost when I restart. The games work fine in TouchPod but I would rather not have to use it to load my games. Is there something special I need to do to get my games working in Sakura?

Sakura should save patch correctly as long as you select "Patch Load" on the gba game's settings.
Try saving on a game that uses sram natively to see if it is a battery problem or not.

When you put a new GBA game on the MicroSD, make sure you enter the menu for the game, before playing it. You don't have to do anything in the option menu, just enter it. I assume that's when the save file is created, as it won't actually SAVE your game unless you do it.

I have tried everything suggested but I just can't get any GBA rom to save using Sakura. I will try updating to the latest version of Sakura and see if it fixes the problem.

    No it's revenue and demand south park could argue has a bigger audience than family guy about the same

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Family guy is worth 300mill south parks worth 1Bill according to the interwebs
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @K3Nv2, probably cuz family guy is more disliked compared to south park
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It just does the same formula south park can press buttons without going overboard
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    And bc most of the family guy budget is spent on the voice actors rather than on the animation
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Southpark could spend 30k on a animated dick and people would laugh at it
