Savegame problems

Postby Exophase » Mon Aug 12, 2013 11:57 am

Post any savegame problems you have here - that means in-game saves don't work. Or they appear to work but then aren't actually there when you start the game again.

Most of these are due to missing or incorrect entries in our game database, so if they're reported we should be able to fix them.

Note that I'm just looking for issues with in-game saves, not savestates you make at the emulator menu.

Main problem: I can't load any of the 5 save-slots while ingame, instantly crashes the emu. Quicksave and ingame save works fine. Load new game->choosing rom-> resume (yes) is also working, even if the function loads one of the 5save-slots. Just the ingame loading isn't working.

Pokemon Black 2 ingame-saves (*.dsv from desmume newest build) are not recognized by the emu (ofc in /backup/).

This is a known issue of the cracked versions, maybe you could check if you accidentally installed one of those.

Could you tell me if Explorers of Darkness or Explorers of Time work? Sky is indeed listed as having a different save type the game database and according to other sources it's most likely wrong.

Here's an altered game_database.xml if anyone wants to try it with Explorers of Sky and can get back to me: http://drastic-ds.com/game_database.xml

I have a same problem. But loading ends with crashing to main menu of DraStic. I bought DraStic yesterday (I had a lot of problems with adding a credit card to my play store :P) and tried Pokemon SS and HG. None of them could load save state.
BIOS is original, my friend is a nintendo DS maniac, and gave it to me.
I tried various ROMs, but it doesn't make any difference.
Pls help.

I haven't had any problems with the games I'm playing, I'm playing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Dementium: The Ward, Final Fantasy IV, Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded and Pokemon White 2 without any save issues, except the emulator save states.
