    So when i put a nes game on my SC mini SD,on the GBA SP,how do i save?

    Go to goomba settings and i go to "save state" and i can normally load but after i turn GBA off and on,its gone..

    I tried making .sav file for the game but still nothing,so how do i do it?


    Thanks in advance.

    If I remember correctly, after saving the state you have to select 'exit' from the menu. It's been a long time since I used that though. I could be wrong.

    I'm a little fuzzy on the procedures, but I think you have to execute the button combination for saving GBA games.

    Yeah but its for GBA games only,but for other games (built in goomba) i press L+R and i get the Menu,i normally save and i can load if its on but if i turn gba off the save is lost.

    Also thaddius i will try that.

    It's too bad that saving on the Supercard Mini SD requires you to hit L, R, Select and A, because PocketNES uses Select and R for quick save and L and Select to toggle the screen type.

    ah there it is.

    I figured it out: First you save state then L+R+Sel+A and save to SD. Next time you turn on,its there.

    Part of the confusion is that the GB/GBC emulator, Goomba Color version Alpha 6, does not support savestates. The menu option is there, yes, but it does not do anything. Thus, you must save within the game before doing the button combo, while with NES games you can either do that or make a savestate before the button combo.
