    Yesterday, I have installed Tomodachi Collection, English Patch version. Everything was working properly and I managed to create 5 Miis. Today, I have decided to make 2 more Miis and decided to save the game. A few minutes later, I return and realized that my 2 Miis are gone and everything got reset. I tried saving multiple times and the issue still persists. Is there an issue with the nds boot strap?

    Yes, it's an nds-bootstrap issue.
    It is unknown why this happens.

    How big is the .sav file, btw?

    Try increasing the size to 512KB using a hex editor.

    It's because nds-bootstrap isn't properly applying the ap-fix which happens in arm9.
    I will post a working fix in the TwiLightMenu thread soon.

    How do I increase the size? I’m currently using an online hex editor.

    Updated, but issue still persists. Guess I’ll have to wait for an update.

    Good to have also checked the 5297 - Tomodachi Collection (Japan) English AP Fix Version.
    This Version have the Issue as you described.

    After I have turned off the DSi,the Save with 10 created Mii´s was resetted to the Beginning with 2 Mii´s.

    What I have noticed,on both Versions comes up a News Message in the News Center of an "Power off" Failure and the Advise to save properly before exiting the Game.But for this Version it does not worked.

    Thank you.:)

    Oh, I forgot to mention. I use the Old 2DS system, so the results may vary.

    Yes,thank you for hat maybe important "Detail".:D

    I tried the English patched v0.8 Version and it seemed it has also Difficulties on the New3DS XL.
    I had 13 Mii´s and the Broadcast Tower,after Saving and leave it is "resetted" to 10 Mii´s and no Broadcast Tower.:(

    Then I checked the TWiLight Settings from the New3DS XL and some are different so I used the same Settings like on the DSi:

    Expand ROM space in RAM - Yes
    Cache Block Size - 32KB
    Save FAT table cache - No


    After that it worked.:)

    EDIT:
    The 5297 - Tomodachi Collection (Japan) English AP Fix Version works also on the New3DS XL.

    Thank you.:)

    And please Note - ALWAYS SAVE before you leave the Game please !!

    Otherwise you always get that "Power Failure" Message (and maybe your Save Game is "broken" too...)

    Ok, so none of the ROMS worked, both the 5297 AP Patch one and the v0.8 one. Changed the setting as mentioned and issue still persists. :(

    Thank you.:)

    Only to get sure,please check the TWiLight Settings (press SELECT in the Game Selection please and choose the TWLMenu++ Settings please) and check the Version Numbers on the Top Screen (TWiLight and nds Bootstrap please).

    Thank you.:)
