Unable to save Pokemon Platinum

Hi,

I am playing Pokemon Platinum, however I was unable to use the in-game save feature, it would just hang on "Saving a lot of data" and never finish. This didn't bother me because I will just use save states, until I remembered it forces you to save after the Elite Four, meaning I will be unable to finish the game.

I have tried:
Deleting the Battery file and recreating it.
Different ROMs (Doesn't accept my other games save state)
Using both 32Bit and 64Bit versions of DESMUME


If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Unable to save Pokemon Platinum

did you use cheats? were you running desmume from a USB memory stick?

Re: Unable to save Pokemon Platinum

which version of desmume downloaded from where. when it was stuck on "saving lots of data" was the screen animating? can you run resource monitor and see if the DSV file is actually getting accessed?

Re: Unable to save Pokemon Platinum

I am using V0.9.11 x64 downloaded from the desmume website. The screen is animated.

I just tested some more and it seems the saves are just taking a really long time, I went back to it and it was finished, however when I reloaded Platinum it did not load my save.

I have checked resource monitor and it does seem to be accessing the following:

DeSmuME_0.9.11_x64.exe    9720    File    C:\Users\Scott\Desktop\DS Emulator\Battery\Pokemon Platinum.dsv

So I belive it is using the DSV File.

Re: Unable to save Pokemon Platinum

Using that version of desmume and pokemon platinum, I just saved, and loaded my game. So you've changed some sensitive setting (delete your ini file) or you have a hacked/broken rom.

Re: Unable to save Pokemon Platinum

Just deleted the Ini file and it still is not picking up my save.

Is there a way of using my state in a different Rom?

Re: Unable to save Pokemon Platinum

Hi I just got the method to continue after elite four:
(before you do it, its recommended to backup the battery and states folder, renaming all save file same with rom file name)

save from in game saving (before ending screen), save state
exit desmume
download converter save file from http://filetrip.net/f21802-UniqueGeeks- … -Beta.html
convert .dsv save file source: desmume, target: raw, size 512
output: .sav
open desmume, load pokemon platinum ROM
import backup memory .sav flash 4Mbit

happy playing

Re: Unable to save Pokemon Platinum

I'm skeptical. If you don't do this, what happens after you beat the elite 4? The guy who started this thread didnt have working saves AT ALL. The reasons for not having working saves are common (cheating; never having in-game saved; running desmume from a zipfile). If none of these apply, beating the elite 4 should not be a problem; unless it's hanging during the credits, which has definitely been a bug in the past.

Re: Unable to save Pokemon Platinum

these save issues and other bug reports might slow down if another stable release is announced.  the latest builds are miles ahead of the 2015 release.  not sure what else needs to be done but a new stable release is over due imo.   just saying.
