so, i've been trying out a cracked copy but it seems to have a problem with the whole save/load stuff. tried different cracked versions (so far 2.1.4a seems like a good one), but with lame results. i like to try out the whole product before buying, and i'd have loved a 5 minutes full version of your emulator!

the game i tried out was chrono cross, and i'd like to know if this problem (with this game) happens in the legit version of the emulator.
Sorry but the emulator bugging out when saving on cracked versions is deliberate. There is a demo version (30 minutes) - it doesn't have saving, but that kind of makes sense, if you could save you could just keep saving every 30 minutes to play your games.

We're not helping you with a cracked version where the bugs were deliberately induced.

It's like stealing shoes from a shop and then come back a day later to ask how to put them on. Some people got nerves...

Are the games patched? You can try if it works in the current beta: http://www.drastic-ds.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=828

I got DQ9 to work by getting a different copy(it seems the euro rom has an issue on some other emus and i dint know if mine was the eur one so i got the USA patched one and it worked skipping the quicksave error corrupted) as for the other games they simply go to the black screen cant initialize error, im d/l new USA copies of them just in case (my cat destroyed my dstwo and almost the 3dsxl so im using drastic as main replacement till i get a dstwo). and ill try the beta then also

Beta loads the games and saves(even the old copy I had of DQ9).
Ill try my other games That were running fine under the normal play version for any issues, thanks a lot :)

The Spanish translation of 999 doesn't saves.

Edit: I solved it. Searching arround I supossed that there was a problem with the game_database.xml file, so I added these lines to it and now works perfectly:

Code: Select all

<cartridge title="9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors Spanish">
	<slot1>
		<rom title="999HRPERDOO" id="454b5342" crc32="f338ee51" size="0x08000000" name="rom"/>
		<save size="0x10000" name="save" type="EEPROM"/>
	</slot1>
</cartridge>
I hope that this will help to someone if they have the same problem.

Hey everyone, I just recovered from a scary savestate problem myself, which has lead me to register an account to post this question.

What is the absolute safest/best way to make a safe in Pokemon White 2? Should I only save from the in-game menu, or use the save/load function from the Drastic menu?

Thanks!
