    I'm about 31 hours into Strange Journey, and it crashed (as it has done a few times, but not often), and I turned the DS off and on and the screen where you pick a game to play was full of just folders all named gibberish, with folders inside those...turned it off and back on again and this time it says that the card hasn't been properly formatted. Put it into my PC card reader and it says You Need To Format THe Disk In E: Before You Use It

    so, is it stuffed? [​IMG] im gonna be so gutted/upset/pissed off if it is, I have no backup on here of any of my saves. I've been loving the game but I...don't think I'm gonna start again from scratch. I prolly would've with a New Game + or something, but not again on the first run through, 31 HOURS to catchup to where I was [​IMG]

    unless someone has a save I could borrow - I was in *SPOILERS?* Eridanus, up to going to fight ouroboros, am Law aligned currently. Was, I mean [​IMG]

    im using an oldschool M3, one of the first released...i dunno if the saves from later devices are compatible or what? or if the game WORKS on those so that ppl would have a save..

    whatever *sigh*

    I was thinking of buying the game anyway cos it's so so good, but...then i WOULD have to start from the beginning, and yeah I dunno

    If you enjoyed it that much just buy the game.

    I have a 40 hour save two sectors ahead with chaos alignment, so can't help you there but maybe just start again with cheats (No encounters or/and Exp/Macca multiplier) and get demon passwords (Original Demon Data and Customised Demons)
    and you can get back to were you lost your save in less time than your 31 hour save.

    ZPE: yeah I might. Doesn't solve the problem of the save though..

    pitman: yep thanks, that's a decent idea, may do that

    You probably wouldn't want someone else save unless there is a hack to rename the MC (you wouldn't want your MC to be called Poopi McShitster or something similar).

    lol shit yeah, didn't even think of that. yeh anyones save is probably gonna be significantly different from what my game was, so...oh well. Maybe I'll just take a break from it for a bit, maybe buy an original copy down the road and start again then

    I might well already have gone and bought a copy - whether to play or just to support Atlus - but I can't just walk into a store and pick one up, cos I live in Aus. I'd have to import grr

    I've got a save you might be interested in. I'm level 37 towards the end of Delphinus, law aligned luck support, 29% compendium with around 96000 macca.
    Oh and my character name is Charles Tunafish (endurance run anyone?)
    pm me if you still want a save.

    Hey, thanks guys [​IMG] um, I've started the game again hah. Only like 2-3 hours in atm (in Bootes)...still enjoying it though so, maybe I'll just keep going...testament to how good the game is. Although pfunkx0r, your save sounds not all that far from mine. Txus891 ur ahead of where I was, if only a bit, so...

    but as I say, yeah I guess I'll just do it all again, now! 3 hours down, 28 to go hah oh man. Cheers for the offers [​IMG]
