    well, i take back my word

    it did some minor speed up on some of my games:

    - Summon Night 2
    - Summon Night: Hajimari no Ishi

    downside is. you cant save. specially if your GBA cart doesnt have internal battery

    Sweet! This fixed the almost constant lag in FF6 Advance, and even allowed me to pass the opera scene, which would lag so badly that it literally wouldn't load the next section once you got to the balcony. The lag had REALLY bothered me with this game. I can't thank you enough.

    EDIT: Bah the guy above is right. It fixes the lag, but I can't save. Sigh...

    Seems I remember that enabling "restart" in the SC patcher program did about the same thing.

    Enabling restart in the Supercard patcher causes the lag to reappear, making it impossible to pass the Opera scene in FF6, but without enabling it, it won't let me open the supercard save menu in-game. Damned if I do, damned if I don't.

    Just use the "Quick Power Cycle" method of saving. First save in-game, then turn off the GBA and turn it back on very quickly (if you're using a DS you MUST reboot in GBA mode by holding the right key, since it won't work in DS mode). Press Right to get to the "saver" tab, navigate to your save file, and press A twice (to "save to SD").

    More cumbersome, yes, but it works.

    I saved in-game, turned the DS off, quickly turned it back on (DS is in 'Auto' mode, and I removed my slot 1 cart so slot 2 would be auto-loaded), found my save file, saved it to sd, then loaded the game, and it was if I hadn't saved still.

    Is there a part of this I'm missing?

    well even if we manage to save the game by power cycle, is there anyway to load the sav file? it seems that the sav file is not loaded when you load the patched fix gba game.

    This.

    QPC has never worked for me so I've always resorted to using RT save, I just tried again not long ago with Fire Emblem and no such luck with the QPC method(using GBASP)

    Check it:

    IMPORTANT NOTE: the QPC method does not work properly in firmware 1.7 and newer, but only in DS mode. To ensure that it works correctly, merely reboot into GBA mode instead of DS mode before using the Saver tab as described below. You can alternatively use the DumpSRAM program which is designed to replicate the functionality of the Saver menu. Setup the .ini file and then after rebooting, launch the DumpSRAM.nds file instead of using the Saver tab.
