Re: I need help

You lost your progress, unless your OS is making backups of the savestate files.

Re: I need help

Actually, I misread your question because it was verging on gibberish. I now understand that what happened is you loaded an old state on accident instead of saving it. If you have a directory with the name containing (backups) in your desmume StateSlots directory, then you can find a savestate to recover with in there. if you don't, it's because you're using an old version of desmume. If you were using an old desmume, your progress is 100% lost--there is no possibility of OS backup recovery because there was never a file to backup in the first place.

Re: I need help

I wasnt trying to do a save state, i only did 1 save state because i missclicked f1 or smthg like that, the thing is that i was saving the progress on the game, and i pressed "3" or a number key and i loaded the save state that i did by missclick, and i downloaded desmume a month ago or less than that so i think i have the new version btw

Re: I need help

ok, if one of those has what you need, then congratulations on your lucky find. If not, then there's nothing you can do. I suggest you backup that entire directory before you do anything else, to avoid mistakes which lose that data, in case what you need is really in there indeed.
