    The gba rom naturally saving does nothing. Saving, turning it off, and turning it back on results in new games and etc.
    You need to write a save state every time.
    Or is it just me?

    Did you try exiting via the bottom-screen menu rather than shutting off the DS? Kind of like NO$GBA and it not saving if you dont exit via the menu.

    That is unusual. I've been playing some GBA games and they naturally save.

    Are you using a slot 2 cart or the SCDS2 emulator? You shouldn't have to do any SRAM patching for emulators.

    Oh alright. It seems that you need to navigate to your sdcard:\NDSGBA\gamerts folder to find all the stupid little saves and name them correctly to correspond with the .gba name. Whatever. Mine were named MOTHER.sav or MOTHER~1.sav
    Supercard team needs to fix this crap.
    In the meantime, I'll just have to use the save states.
