Re: Loading problems

Let me predict... you're confusing savestates and save games (aka in-game saves) and your savestate was taken at a point where the emulator was just black due to using an old desmume version or a hacked or cheated pokemon? There's no reason you should get a black screen otherwise if it's previously worked.

Re: Loading problems

it has not previously worked is the thing, and no i am not trying to load a save state. I used the ingame save feature and then verified the .dsv is being created but when it tries to load the game it just goes to black

Re: Loading problems

When I hit the continue button in the game it attempts to load the game but instead it just gets stuck on a black screen with no errors being output to console or anything and the only way to stop it is to force it to stop

Re: Loading problems

What happens if you back up your .dsv file and then try to make a new save game from scratch? Be sure to get through the tutorial and into the main game.

Re: Loading problems

it saves properly in game with no issue, as far as i can tell, but trying to back it up gives the message "save was not successfully exported" but it leaves a file over

Re: Loading problems

you're using "export backup memory"? that should work, though if you're using an old version of desmume there's no telling what problems you might have. What URL are you using for desmume download? Anyway that option isn't needed. Just find the .dsv file on your disk to make a backup and proceed with the test

Re: Loading problems

i redownloaded demume, but i updated it to a more current version and now it loads properly. it might have just been some sort of compatibility issue from the older version i was running if i had to hazard a guess.
