    I just got into the Forest Temple (I think that's what you call it).. the temple you go to after you do that Spirit Flute song with Gage
    Why is this happening? I'm on Acekard 2.1 btw

    because you using a 512kb save instead of a 1mb save which this game requires.

    So any flashcard that doesn't allow larger than 512KB saves won't let you finish this game?

    Do like I did. Go to local gamestore, buy the game and beat it in two days.

    there are numerous threads on this topic already, the file size of the save file is about 1mb which most cards don't support to be able to keep your save you must go and download a save file from somewhere and use that

    I used an Ak2i and completed the whole of the rail map quests with a 512k save file ( fire realm and then the next visit to the tower ), also did a lot of the side quests, never had any issues... I have since however had it converted to a 1mb file.

    It is a bug/glitch if you lose control and keep driving straight off a cliff. You get killed in a cutscene...
