    I hate to ask again, especially in it's own topic, but the last time I asked it got overlooked.

    Using WoodR4 1.04 and 1.05 my LoZ: Spirit Tracks save will not load.
    After you tap the screen to go to the file select, it creates a new save which overwrites the old one.

    Has anyone else had this problem and/or know how to fix it?
    Here is my file, btw: http://www.mediafire.com/?mzojndozj2m

    I got an idea to convert it using Shuny's Online Save Converter to convert it either from R4 to AceKard2 (same types) but that tells me it doesn't need to be converted, or from R4/AceKard2 to a diff type back to R4/AceKard2 but I get the following error:

    I don't think it matters much, but I used Normmatt's Save File Fix to make it 1MB a while back.

    Check the following:

    -It it a patched version of Spirit Tracks?
    -Is it renamed to .nds.sav?
    -Does making a new Savefile work?

    Well Im no expert, but those are the basic things that should be checked.

    If the game is loaded w/o a save file it creates a 512kb save, which is wrong.

    Edit: Go into the individual settings for the game (press y) and select a save type of 8Mbit.

    Wait if you're trying to use an R4 save on WoodR4 FW. Don't you just rename it to .nds.sav?

    Yes, and it worked for all the other save files I have.

    But I needed to set LoZ:ST to 8Mbit save size in WoodR4's game setting.
