Re: new pokemon issue XD

a lot of people have this problem. a lot of people don't. in order to investigate it i need a dsv and a savestate just before the final 4 finish dying (so that I dont have to do anything to kill them), and i need to know what emulator youre using.

Re: new pokemon issue XD

your savefile (.dsv) is the wrong size. therefore you have never saved, throughout the entire game, because it would not have worked. you must not have seen the 1 million threads on the web talking about pokemon savefile sizes in desmume. since you have never saved before, I don't know why you would expect the save file to work now after fighting the elite 4. you should check our faq for a discussion on why what youve done by relying on savestates is a terrible mistake.

you will have to wait for 0.9.5 for an option to repair your save file, which you would do before fighting the elite 4. or you might find that an svn version on the web or this version here

http://tasvideos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=210670

it will require using the FORCE AS CURRENT option, which will in turn require using the search function on this forum to find where it has already been discussed, or just your ingenuity.

Re: new pokemon issue XD

But did you ever LOAD the savegame? nope. So you don't know whether it worked. The faq discusses this.

Check the faq for a very special topic just for you called

Why can't Pokemon save after beating the elite 4

Re: new pokemon issue XD

I have no idea, but I just realized that 0.9.5 won't help you and you will HAVE to use gocha's build which is discussed now in the faq

Re: new pokemon issue XD

what you said doesnt sound like all the steps.
the forum stays open in a firefox tab.
im not sure what youre asking, but there isnt any way at all to setup links between games in this emulator.

Re: new pokemon issue XD

because you didnt follow the @*&#@#ing steps. load the savestate, set the size, use force as current, save the game. exit the emulator and verify that you can load the game from the savefile. if you can, then load it and play through to complete the game.

Re: new pokemon issue XD

For me it works in the latest SVN Build. I think the save problem was fixed in the latest SVN Build. For anyone that has problem, try out the latest SVN Build.

Re: new pokemon issue XD

nut, it has nothing to do with svn revisions. try to comprehend the discussion above and realize that the problem was caused by the use of an incorrect savefile.

Re: new pokemon issue XD

Oh yeah the problem is the savefile. It works for me because I mostly save the game using the in-game option through the whole game, and at the end of the game it can lode my savefile. I think the best solution is to restart playing from the beginning.
