View Full Version : Questions! Help.

I have 2 questions:

#1. I am using VBA (Visual Boy Advance) emulator to play my LF Rom. The in game save doesn't work. (In game save is the save you use in the game, not the emulator.)

When I first used it, there was a SAV file but the file did not show up when I want to continue my game.

I downloaded a new Rom of the game because I figured that problem occurs because of that Rom, but with my new Rom, no SAV file shows up aty all!

I am wondering if any of you know why that happens or how to fix it. I need to know this because even I can't use the in game save, I can't access Mystery Islands 4 - 7 after I beat the Elite 4. If there is a way around that, please tell me too.

#2. How do you use cheats in VBA?

1) Change the save type to Flash 128k. (Options -> Emulator -> Save Type -> Check Flash 128k
2) Cheats -> Cheat List
3) This should be in Emulatior discussion, but it would be locked there since there is a stickied thread on it there so I'll just be nice and leave this here until you solve the problem.

I got the cheat problem solved, but still can't save. There's the SAV file, but can't access it in the game.

Options>Emulator>Save Type> Automatic and Flash 64k.

That's the setting that works for me. Then to actually save the game...
File>Save Game
Or just press Shift+F1-10.

Actually that solution makes the situation worse. Turning it to Flash 128K and deleting the SAV file should fix it. Even if it means starting again. You'll have to start again after beating the Elite Four if you use save states, as you won't be able to continue/complete your quest.

Just go to the folder with your ROM file and delete the SAV file. It worked for me!

What ya do is see, you go to file, and there will be things saying: Open, open gameboy,save,load. Then there will be this thing called save game and load game and when you go to one of them, a whole line of slots should appear, therefore to save your game you go to save game, slot one or press shift+f1 and you will have saved you game, then when you want to load that game, go to load game, slot one and click on it and it will go straight to where you were when you last saved.
