I went a few pages pack and couldn't find a post about this.. it seems everyone already knows how.
How do I save when playing pokemon games with desmume? When I save it creates another file but its a .sav and it won't open with desmume. (I'm playing pokemon platinum and just saving like I would on a normal DS)
I'm on a Mac too... The newest OSX
there is a special section in the faq about saving with pokemon, but i guess nobody reads the faq
Why does this game fail to save?
* Desmume's autodetection for save types is not very good. For now, you need to manually specify the correct save type for your game. Consult the manual for details on how to do this for your platform. We want to fix this, but there are no specific plans so far. You may also consult http://www.advanscene.com/ to easily identify the save type for your game.
Can I use my save state's across versions ?
* Probably not. Due to the constant internal changes in desmume, it is unlikely that a save state created with one version will work with another version of desmume. Please note that the use of SAVESTATES is discouraged, as these are likely to break between emulator versions. Instead use SAVE FILES. These are likely to survive between emulator versions. This means that you will have to use save points within the game. SAVE FILES are stored in .sav files. Also, see this article for further details : Savefile or savestate
This is all I could find on saving in the FAQ. It doesnt tell me how to use a savestate. When I went to the url provided in the FAQ (www.advanscene.com) I found nothing on saving with pokemon.
ahh shit. Nevermind I found it. Thanks guys
Eh, where do I set the save type?
oh. i think you can't on osx. sorry. thats what you get for being a rebel. try vmware or something.
