Hello Guys,

I am using Visual Boy Advanced v1.8.0 Beta 3. I beat the hell out of the elite 4 and had saved my game manually using this technique until now.

See Attachment 1

But now after beating gary....It directly takes you to Credits and then end of game...After which it starts all over again....
So i cannot continue stopping team rocket..., catching new pokemon, etc.

And even if i tried saving it in the normal way...This is what happens...

See Attachment 2

Please help me pokemaniacs.....I dont want to start all over again i defeated elite four in one shot....I had such good pokemon...i dont want to loose them....

Best Regards,

I dunno. Try using the save states offered by the emulator, or change save types.

Go to options-Emulater-Save type-select flash 128k.

P.S: You have to start again.

Try selecting (Save...) from the file menu and creating a (.sgm) save file.

Make sure you download the latest version of VBA, that is an old version. You can download it on the VBA website.

Don't try to look for solutions. You're pretty much screwed over.

You are screwed.

If you can't save via the menu, it is because your save format is not FLASH128K.

My Advice:
Start over, but before doing so, make sure FLASH128K is selected under Emulator->Save Type

And, just to try it out, as soon as you get into your house, try and save.
I believe in Jesus Christ my Savior. If you do too, and aren't scared to admit it, then copy and paste this in your signature.

Sorry guys, but I'm leaving Pokécommunity. I just don't have time for it. As of right now you will no longer be able to contact me.

Can't give you the link but download the VBA emulator version from the 'Emulator Zone' site. And make sure your save type is 'Flash 128'. Or play it on,'NO$GBA.'

Please check out my InuYasha fanfiction and tell me what you think.
