    Hi,

    I have a weird error where the game save will be "erased due to corruption" every second time I beat the Elite 4. Each time it happens I will need to use VBA in order to continue the game :\ Is it possible to fix this error?

    When you put the rom on your sd card, with which patch setting in the M3 Game Manager did you use?

    I don't remember using any... although, some information I forgot to add:
    This didn't happen before I put the .sav into VBA. Maybe it has something to do with VBA's save mechanisms, seeming as it outputs a 64KB file instead of 128KB.

    Sounds like you found the problem. In the VBA emulator under the options menu go to emulator then save type and have flash 128k checked. Convert the save back to a m3 .dat file and you should be good to go.

    Well, partially. But, it still outputs as 64KB... and I will still have to use VBA to continue to whoop the Elite Four's ass again.

    Im using VBA-M so not sure if any differences will arise. When your running the game go to options/emulator/save type. Choose save type flash and flash save type size 128kb. I was able to get a 128kb save file size using this setting. Disregard my pm.

    Instead of opening a new thread I thought I'd ask this here but is it possbile to connect an EZ Flash IV Pokemon Leaf Green to an original Pokémon Pearl or Platinum in on DS Lite?

    I don't see why it wouldn't work. Give it a shot.
