Need help loading my game

I'm currently playing pokemon Platinum but im having trouble loading my saved file

When I save in the game and save state and then quit - start again and play Desmume wont allow me to load my saved file from the game but it does allow me to load my save state.

when I save in game I dont think desmume creates a file in my computer for me to load from later or is it so that it doesn't have to?

plese help and explain processing of saving and loading files the normal way (not save state).

Re: Need help loading my game

Are you using an old version of DeSmuME?

Desmume 0.9.6-win64bit downloaded from emuparadise.me im not sure if its old or not but its not THAT old so I dont't think so.

also does it matter? I still don't know how desmume works in the save and load department, I could really use an explenation on how to safe a game file to the computer( don't you need to press export  backup memory?).

Re: Need help loading my game

You save in-game and DeSmuME saves a file. In 0.9.6 the savetype autodetection was broken, or nonexistant or something. It's two years old.

Starting from 0.9.7 savetype detection was fine. Latest version is 0.9.8

Yes, your current savegame is lost. See if you can save and load in the 0.9.7
Yes, that means starting from the beginning.

i think if you use the 0.9.7 dev+ version you can load the savestate, then use a menu to force the save file size, and then do an in-game save to get the correct save type

Re: Need help loading my game

I have been using DeSmuME 0.9.8 for the last two weeks. I got the Pokemon Platinum Rom...I tried like twenty times to save it in the gave using the Pokemon menu and hitting save but every time I turned off the emulator after saving it wouldn't take me to the menu where it would usually ask if you want to select your current game, start a new one, or hit settings, it would just start the game over as if I were playing it for the first time and never did an in game save....SO I started using the DeSmuME save states (Shift+whatever f button) it has worked perfectly and I am right before the last person in the elite four, I beat her(just to see what would happen) and of course it saved my game. Now what occurred next is the problem that I faced when I started playing the emulator where I cant access the ingame save file..after I beat the elite four It just acts as if I never played the game.. So I loaded the file (that I saved with the save states option) that I had right before the last elite four battle and am just hoping for a solution...I appreciate all your expertise and sorry if i brought up any previous issues, however I am using 0.9.8....

Re: Need help loading my game

nope, theres no solution. im sorry you couldnt extrapolate to the future and imagine what would happen if you werent able to use the in-game save and beat the elite four. try playing the game again, using the faq for ideas on how to make the saving work.

Re: Need help loading my game

do you think it might have something to do with the specific rom? or do all roms on the desmume fail at saving in the game and need to be done so with save states?
