Certain game saves dont work
« on: November 30, 2022, 12:26:39 pm »
Link's awakening game saves dont work. The game runs fine, but save data is either not being read or created when the emulator is closed.
On the other hand, Pokemon Red works fine. I noticed that pokemon has two saves, "POKEMON1" and "POKEMON2" with link's awakening only having "ZELDA" as its data. Is there any way to force link's awakening to use the other save system?

Pokemon saves are larger because it uses a cartridge with more RAM. I'm not sure what the deal is with Link's Awakening, I've gotten a similar report before. I assume you're doing the in-game save properly with A+B+Start+Select? Also for informational purposes, what's the date/revision code on the back of the calculator?

Yeah, ive been saving properly. The problem with the revision code is i dont know it, my calc was bought from ebay and the number was scratched off. Sorry i couldnt help.



I dont know if this will be helpful, but there are numbers on the PCB that might be of use. The wires are an overclock mod that i have tried both on and off.
