etrian odyssey - crash at a particular level

Hi,

First of all, sorry if my english is not perfect, it's not my native language.

I'm playing Etrian Odyssey (the first one) and everything works perfectly until I reach level 19. As soon as I enter it, the 2 screens become black and I can't do anything more.

I've tried the following things:
- use desmume 0.9.6 and 0.9.7
- all the possible combinations with emulation settings, display method, 3d settings
- try on another computer

I finally exported my savefile for using it with no$gba, and it worked, I was able to enter level 19. So it doesn't come from the rom, and I can continue playing the game with no$gba, but I would be interested in knowing why there is a problem at that particular point in the game and if there's a solution.

Thanks

Re: etrian odyssey - crash at a particular level

it worked...

Many thanks for your good advice!

I never thought it could come from the savestate. From now on, I'll keep in mind there's a difference between a rom playing from a savestate and from a savefile.

Re: etrian odyssey - crash at a particular level

errors accumulate in savestates as emulation bugs occur. we know etrian odyssey has some poorly understood emulation bug. by reloading from a save file, the game program is reset even though your progress remains, and the accumulated bugs are avoided.
