Visual Boy Advance Invalid or Not Recognized Save File

  • Visual Boy Advance Invalid or Not Recognized Save File Bruno Augusto

    Today after an annoying problem with my PC I had to format it and reinstall everything.

    Of course I made backup of all my files but, as always it seems that I lost something.

    I use Visual Boy Advance, specifically a modification of it called VisualLink. I saved my files regularly using the virtual Flash ROM the emulator provides to save "in game".

    But now, after everything is done, all my files have been moved back, I was testing it and the save file is not recognized anymore. It doesn't show a corrupted message, it simply would not recognize the saved data.

    I'm not sure how to fix or workaround this.

    The saved data was done after a lot of gaming time and I really don't want to have to do it again. I appreciate your time.

  • Check the emulator settings. You most likely have a different save type, you should try to change that and reload the game. If you don't know your old savetype, you'll need to try.

  • I started playing Pokemon with my Android phone. I used my cartridge image with the RIN gameboy emulator. It's a port of the PSP one. My save games (when uncompressed) have 70KB. On Visual Boy Advance (which I'd like to play when not on my phone, and to do trades with myself :) uses savefiles that are 32KB. Are those standard formats? Do I have any hopes of using one with the other? I really...

  • My primary save file is currently on my Wii U. Out of things to do when out of the house, I decided to make another save file on my 3DS. After playing for a bit, I wondered if it was possible to merge the two separate save files into one, using the transfer data program. Is this possible or would one save file overwrite the other during the transfer process?

  • Sorry in advance, this question could fall into 1 of 3 categories (server admin, gaming, or programming) I'm working on a personal Minecraft server for my friends and I, I'm having the server back itself up on an interval, which requires the commands save-all and save-off to be called in succession before creating the backup file. (afterwards, save-on is called to put everything back to normal... to make a backup, the world files are modified again, breaking my backup. So far, my only solution is to add a delay between save-off and backup, but surely I'm either missing something or I can report

  • I am on a MacBook Pro running Maverick and I recently downloaded Visual Boy Advance v. 1.7.6 and am having trouble loading saved game states. I was playing Pokemon Emerald and saving via the in-game save option (not using the "Freeze state"). The saves seemed to work successfully and no errors popped up when I saved the game. After quitting the emulator and returning later, however, I had only... will allow me to load any file. The "File" > "Import Battery" option is also not possible on Mac OSX. I am using both .sav and .sgm files. Thanks in advance for the help!

  • Possible Duplicate: How can I save my game after beating Ganon in Twilight Princess? See, I fought him in all four stages, and in the last one I saved my game to make sure. After I beat him, the credits staring rolling, and I stayed and watched all of the credits and there was no time in the credits or after where I could save. So I thought the game had just automatically saved for me. But when I went back on the game a few hours later, I was right back at the castle to fight Ganon and I still had Midna. Any idea of where to save or why this might have happened?

  • I downloaded LittleBigPlanet almost a year ago when it was free and recently, I got the Game of the Year edition. I was hoping to just delete the game from my system and just use the Game of the Year edition from now on, but I noticed that the save data wasn't in the Save Data Utility. I believe that all of the save data is in the game itself on the console and if I delete it, I will lose all of that save data. Is there a way to get the save data from the downloaded game into the Save Data Utility so that way I can delete the game and still have the save data? If not, then will I have

  • I need some enlightenment here. I owned my PS3 like 2 years ago, but it was broken, I can't turn it on. So I bought a 2nd hand PS3 from a different person. My old PS3 has all the saved data and there is one downloaded game in it. I have searched on the Net on how to transfer saved games and all, but all requires the other PS3 to be still functional and mine doesn't work anymore. I heard placing the hard disk drive on the new PS3 won't work either since they are encrypted and if I want to use it, I have to format it? I need clarification here and I'd love to know if there are any other ways

  • I'm about to upgrade my Windows phone, looking to get another. Is there a way to transfer saved game data from one Windows phone to another or will I have to start from scratch for all of my games? Edit: Obviously, some games save some data to an external server or cloud. I'm not talking about those games, I'm talking about the ones which have data saved locally on the phone.
