I have trouble using an in-game save from DeSmuMe on DraStic. The game in question is Harvest Moon DS. I have copied the .dsv file into DraStic/Backup, but the "load game" option does not show up in-game. It does show up though when I have a .dsv file in the backup folder that was created by DraStic.

I bought and downloaded DraStic today, so it should be the current version.
Something to note is that DraStic's in-game save file is 256 KB in size, but DeSmuMe's is about 64 KB.

Do you mind uploading the DeSmuME save game file? I'll look at it to see what's happening.

So i just went from the LG V20 to the V30 and my savestates and in game saves are not transferring. I put my old savestates in the save folder on my new phone and i still get nothing. Googledrive isn't helping either... :cry:

Hello! I hope I post this in the right section! :)

I have a somewhat annoying problem with my Drastic Emulator (bought it, so no cracked version).

I normally use the Emulators save function and not the ingame (Pokemon). Normally, after closing the game and the app, I restart the emulator and just hit continue game to play. (Don't know if thats the exact name of the button, as I use the German version). But I can't do this anymore because that button is always blocked. The only thing I can do is "Starte new game" and then hit "Continue last savestate" (again, don't know if its called like that), which sucks because ingame I can't save whenever I want.
I already re-installed the app and tried another ROM, both didn't work.
Anyone got an idea how this can be fixed? :(




Other Info:
ROMs tried: Pokemon White and Pearl
Phone: Galaxy A5 (2016)
Android 7.0

The continue button simply just loads the last used game and it's latest savestate. Since you use savestates, tap load new game, then tap start new game after loading pokemon white/pearl, then press the menu and enter the full menu, then you can tap load savestate and load your save.

I honestly think the "Continue" and "Start new game" options on the start screen and Exophase should rename them (e.g. "Load recent savestate" and "Load game")

The Naruto Ninja Destiny games don't seem to work properly with DraStic. When they load, they say "read (or write) has failed. Turn power OFF and reinsert DS game card". It seems that this is due to the savegame size, as DraStic insists on using 512K for these games when they are 256K, but I've tried downloading a previously completed savegame, converting it to .sav (Desmume format) and changing it to .dsv, and it still doesn't work...
