    I just got a EZflash 3in1 to use with my dstt
    now, my dstt runs ysmenu and it's been great, it can even run gba roms
    but my problem is, it executes gba roms just fine but none of the games can save
    the saves that ysmenu create don't work

    is there something i need to do with the roms for it to be able to save properly?
    i tried the search function and i've only found topics on gba exploader, but i'd like to run gba with ysmenu if possible

    I'm not sure if YSMenu does auto-patching for SRAM for GBA games. Have you tried patching them using BatchGBA or GBATA? Try patching them first and trying again. If that doesn't work then it might be the battery, but I'm pretty sure SRAM patching them will solve the problem.

    EDIT : Cheers Diablo mate, I wasn't sure if it autopatched or not.

    Here's links for SRAM patching tools.

    YSMenu doesn't autopatch, so yes, you'll have to open them with GBATA and SRAM Patch them.
