Error loading Save Slot 1

My in game save has just disappeared and will only load from the previous save before the most recent one, also my save states also dont work it says error loading, I have the ds1 file from the save state but it wont open, I did an in game save and a save state and neither have worked, is there a way I can make the ds1 file open as it just says failed to load slot 1?

Re: Error loading Save Slot 1

someone or some thing moved your files around. You say you have a .ds1 file, but "it won't open" (yes, it will, if you opened it directly in desmume. but if you just press F1, desmume can't know where your mis-located .ds1 is). Get control of your files and put everything back where it belongs. A good way to figure out where it belongs is to make backups of everything, then delete it all, then check where desmume puts things. After all that, close desmume and put your backups on top of where desmume puts it.

Sorry drag and drop doesn't work. But another way to load a file is to use the file menu to load it.

Re: Error loading Save Slot 1

I didn't tell you to try pressing F1 over and over, I told you to try using the file menu. Using the file menu doesn't say "error loading slot 1". Reporting the results of random tests I didn't ask you to do, without saying what test the results were attached to, is not helpful. Did you follow my suggestion of deleting everything and repairing it one file at a time? Get desmume and the rom only and make sure it boots. then load a state from the file menu.

Re: Error loading Save Slot 1

"literally nothing" is not the same "starts the game from the beginning" but at least the description of your problem is expanded from 2 words to 6 words. It's still a weak effort. "starts the game from the beginning" is what I expect if the savestate was made at the moment before the game starts from the beginning. That's the simplest explanation compatable with your six weak words.

If you followed my suggestion of deleting everything and repairing it one file at a time, and are getting the result of a savestate being made the moment before the game starts, then you only have your own confusion about which files you made and when to blame. The problems you're describing simply don't happen unless you get mixed up about your files. Perhaps your kid brother downloaded a different version of desmume or the rom, or hacked the rom without telling you.
