    Hello,
    I recently got an AK2i and have been loading things onto it.
    I put on nesDS and some games, and I haven't been able to figure out how to save.

    I was playing Dragon Quest II, and I went to the king and had him save the file, but when I rebooted my DS and tried to play again, my progress was lost.

    How do I save in nesDS?

    Ah... save states work.
    I didn't know you had to touch the bottom screen to get that menu, I thought it was just disabled.

    in the case of something with an internal save ability, you could also save the SRam state. But I frankly don't see the point when you can save the plain state.

    Yep. Too bad it's manual though (as in after you save in the game, you have to press the SRAM button to actually save)
