Re: From pirate to geniue, I can't save.

I already tried that. :/

Steps:
> Delete old DSV
> start a new game
> skip until I can save
> save game (takes somewhat longer than with an existing dsv)
> softreset the game
> load the new and working savegame
> load savestate
> save
Result: save game has been deleted.

Also I tried to start a new game, load the old savestate and save then again.

if an ingame save takes more that 3 secondsto save its corrupt. im not sure what you mean skip until you can save but i tried it many times and it works. also i tend to use the reset feature of drastic more than the soft reset.

I tried both resets, everytime the same result.

After starting the game, I speed the process up, choose my gender and my name. After that - and the short intro to your friends, I save the game.
If I fast-forward and save (under 3 seconds), I can restart the game and load. Same works for the first normal-paced saving.
When I load my save game with my 0:00 gametime character and load my save state again and save (savesavesave!) it says, that it's saved - after that, out of the game-menu, I can restart and it says, that the savegame is deleted. :/

I hope this makes any sense.

Not sure what's up with yours darkmio it's worked perfectly for me. As long as the savestate is before the ingame save I  haven't had an issue. Just beat iris and my sage loaded up just fine

I guess I screwed somehow up and have to start over again? Should I upload my ingame savegame for you?

Ok I believe I fixed my in game saving problem a while ago on Pokemon Black by doing this:

On Main Title screen press Up+Select+B and it should take you to a screen asking if you'd like to delete save file and once deleted cannot recover. Continue on and it will take 5-10 seconds to delete it. The game will reset on its own. Once it has reset, try the steps mentioned minus removing the dsv and I believe it should work. I haven't had a problem since I've done it and it has saved successfully after Elite 4 and everything.

This one worked without any flaw.

Good! I'm glad I could help. To avoid anymore threads pertaining to in game saves(Pokémon) or invalid license, may I suggest doing a sticky for each? It looked like my solution worked for each.

The next version shouldn't have the save problem, but it might still be good to help people who have corrupted saves from earlier versions. And definitely something for the license problems. At this point I'm thinking what we need is a FAQ (and guides) forum instead of just a global FAQ thread. I'll talk it over with the mod crew.

Thanks for your help, btw.
