    I got my R4DS and 3in1 last week. I'm having no trouble with the R4, but I'm having the typical pokemon related noob issues with the 3in1. I've tried using ndstation and rudolfs tools with and without patching from gbata for both leaf green and sapphire. But no matter what I do I get the "save file is corrupt" message. From what I've read I don't want to start playing if the save file is corrupt, as I could lose my save file if I get to the elite 4.

    Any help would be appreciated. Cheers

    Have you tried patching with GBATA or the official EZ4 client?

    maybe you should try patching it with th EZ 4 client.
    i think that pokemon has 1mbit saves and those dont work with GBATA

    also, you have to load the game to NOR if thats the case

    I've tried GBATA. Forgive my ignorance, but how do you use the EZClient software, it's very confusing.

    I use gbata for Sleep/Wake and Clock Fix patches and EZ4_Client for save patch.
    Everything works except that the clock only runs during game playtime so berries grow VERRRRY SLOWLY.

    If you use an un-patched rom file for VBA, you can even transfer the 128KB save back and forth between the 3in1 and VBA so you can cheat to get all the berries, masterballs and rare candies you want.

    I have done this sucessfully with Ruby, but I cannot get "Emerald 386" (a hack) to take the clock fix patch.
    Luckily, "Diamond 493" ( http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=598 ) works perfectly on the r4 and even takes Diamond cheat codes.

    edit: You MUST use NOR mode for Pokemon.
    I use Rudolph's 3in1_ExpPack_Tool.nds on the R4 to transfer .gba files and .sav files.

    Ok cool, I'll try that. I had a quick look at EZ4_Client this morning, but I couldn't see where the patching tools were. Just to make sure, is this the right tool? EZ4Client

    Thanks for that, you help is much appreciated. I had the wrong version of EZ Client, so I couldn't patch the roms properly.
