    I doubt the following problem is because of something of the Wii, probably the SD card but:


    I have a 4.2 Wii [came that way], hacked it, installed starfall (or something like priiloader), bought a 16 GB lexar SDHC card and for what ever reason when I run a game like Circle Of the Moon or Aria Of sorrow and save it seems to save fine but than if I exit the emulator and reenter my save is gone. Why?

    Basically I can't save using VBAGX, it IS the latest, my PS1 emulator saves fine, I have not tried Tantrics' other emulators, or any other emulators in general as i'm waiting to get a USB hardrive to have more space for games . . . . . .

    I'm sure saving is set to SD, I can exit the game and renter and i'll be able to get back to my game. Dobutful but could be that I have 4.2 and not 4.1 or below.. . .


    Could also be I might be using old save files and should start a new.

    Make sure the save file matches the rom file name. Also, I have had a lot of bad experience with the saves for all the emulators so far, really recommend just doing the save states if possible.

    I still seem to get this even with 3.2 or what ever Tantric recently released. How could the file name never match the save file name? I played some FF 6 (VI Advance), got the mines to save, turned the Wii off, went back a few minutes later and I have to start a new game.


    Save states a hassle because too many, recalling the date and time the game was last played.

    Just save over your last save state. Oh yeah, 500th post! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Some games keep their save, some don't, that just seems random. Dawn of souls will, I think the DKC games will but others won't. I'm sure that save file name is the same as the actual ROM file name.
