Pokemon HeartGold

When I run the latest version of DeSmuMe with the Pokemon HeartGold rom on MacOs and try to save in-game, I get the error:

Error saving data. The backup memory has failed.

I've tried to change the FLASH 4MB and it still shows the same errors upon saving.
Any idea on how to fix it?

Re: Pokemon HeartGold

Define "latest version".
Did you use cheats?
Did you try importing your save file from outside desmume?
Did you ever try saving without manually selecting the save size?
Did you EVER have heartgold saving?
Did this happen immediately after you updated desmume?

Re: Pokemon HeartGold

1. By latest version, I mean the version 0.9.11. Basically the latest one available for download.
2. No I did no try to use any cheats.
3. No I did not try ti import a save file.
3. Yes I tried to save before selecting a save size which led me to this error. After some Google researches, guides said that changing the save size to Flash 4MB would fix it.
4. No I did not have a HeartGold save previously.
5. I did not update DeSmuMe. I simply downloaded the emulator and the rom. Opened the game and tried to save. Nothing else.

Re: Pokemon HeartGold

restart your game with a fresh desmume installation and test a save early on. if you see that it works, you need only remember what you did to scramble it in the first place. if it doesn't work, store all the files in a different location (instead of on a USB drive, for instance), and if that doesn't work, consider the possibility that your rom might be junk.

I just tried to reinstall everything and it still gives me the same error. And the same rom seems to be working on Windows though...

Re: Pokemon HeartGold

0.9.11 is not "the latest one available for download". Look harder, there are fresh builds made on a daily or weekly basis. Try one of those on your mac.
