dsv savefile not loading for Pkmn Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky

For some reason Desmume is not loading the in-game save file for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky US ROM. Only option I get is New Game. When I play in-game the game says it saved successfully, however I note that when I try playing with no$gba it would say save failed, so I thought it could be a ROM issue, but I've tried different ROMs and I still have the same problem, (though I haven't tried the EU version yet).

When Googling I found this thread https://pokemon-hackers.forumotion.com/ … y-save-fix that claims a cheat code fix for the save issue but even after applying it, Desmume still fails to load the save file.

If anyone could take a look at the issue it would be very much appreciated. I am using DeSmuME 0.9.12 git#e8f619c4 x64-JIT SSE2

Interestingly it looks like it works for the EU version of the game. I wonder if there's a bug or anti-piracy thing in the US version.

I doubt it's AP. Can you test on a completely clean setup if the game fails save->load process if you save from the very first point it's possible to save, close the emulator, open it again, and then try to load?

Hmm you are right, trying the ROMs again on a clean setup and they seem to work in saving, at least for the very first and second save point. I don't know what customisation I could have done to make it fail to load the game, pretty sure only changes I made were changing the controls.

Or maybe my original save file got corrupted somehow

Reportedly save files get corrupted but nobody can figure out how and I suspect it's due to rogue security software interfering with desmume, personally.
