using 2.0a
cant you try to save it to the memory stick instead of saving when loading a other game or quit?
and do you know already if you like my icons enough to put them in?

Please try the following:
Start MasterBoy. Then load Pokemon, start a new game and save whenever possible using Start, Save and by confirming (yes).
Then, press R+triangle (or in the menu File, Reset game). 1) Does your saved game show (Continue option after the title screen)?
Then press Home and choose Yes to exit. 2) Is your memory stick blinking at this moment?

Yes but did you see the MS blinking after you pressed home / Yes? (that's the question I asked to you).
Also, do you have a file named like Pokemon Crystal.sav.gz in the SAVE sub-directory of the one where the rom is?

Then it's probably impossible for MasterBoy to write to that directory. But do you have .sv0.gz files though? (or .sv1.gz, sv2.gz, etc.). What is the directory name where they are located?
Thanks

i have those files nowhere in the masterboy directory/subdirectories, and not in the rom folder.
And the location of the rom files is ms0:/PSP/game150/Masterboy/gbc roms/

So you can't save AT ALL then? (even save states)

It is not possible, you probably haven't searched correctly. Please try to find those .sv0.gz or .sv1.gz, etc. (try to search *.sv?.gz with Windows)
They must be somewhere, else you wouldn't be able to load your save states (except the RAM slot, that works everytime; did you use it?).
Btw MasterBoy writes the SRAM file (.sav.gz) in the same folder as save states, so when you find those save states, try to look for a .sav.gz file, and if you find it, move it somewhere out of your memory stick and try again to save from MasterBoy.
If that didn't help, try with another game, or at least to rename your zip. Does it save in this case or still a single blink when exiting?
Also, your memory stick is maybe corrupt; moving all files to your hard drive and formatting it could help.
If you did everything and it didn't solve the problem, you can add me to MSN to make tests easier ;)

pm me the adress...and are you online?
and i didnt searched for new files after saving state...lets see...

edit: save state is located in /SAVE in the folder where the rom is.
edit2: and like i said the files created by saving inside a rom also are not there - not anywhere.

my memory stick is not corrupt i know that, but il try a other game now...
edit3: no at another rom i got desame story, save state works, normal saving inside the game not.

Can other people please tell me if SRAM works on their PSP? Please add some details like your firmware, plugins, and so on.
Thanks :)

I've just released the version 2.01.

* Finished the english documentation on how to colorize your games! *
* This version fixes a bug with sound volume when loading RIN states.
* The file list can now display up to 1024 roms.
* Added a small debug mode for the kernel version (copy the EBOOT from the Kernel mode directory to your MasterBoy directory on the PSP - this version runs significantly slower, so use it only for debugging and colorization). For people who reported me strange problems, press L+R+Triangle in the menu. It will show the available RAM. If you have the problem of save states not working after a while, please tell me how this value evolutes. Also, if this mode is enabled when going to Save states, SRAM, Save now, a message box with some information will appear, if you have the SRAM problem (not saving) please report to me the displayed text.
* Bugfixes

Download it on my site as usual: http://brunni.dev-fr.org/

* Note: The current method is not the best. The best is to use PSPLink if you can; basically just set-up PSPLink to launch the MasterBoy EBOOT in a local folder (which contains the files necessary for MasterBoy to run).
* For that, extract this RAR file somewhere (avoid spaces in the path name).
* Copy the contents of the PSP folder to your PSP.
* Launch PSPLink on your PSP
* Connect the USB cable and install the drivers located in PC/driver.
* Modify the launch.bat file to replace my example path "../../Projects/OSLib/OSLib/OSTools" with the path of your MasterBoy folder (the path is relative, hence the ../, which mean parent folder)
* Execute launch.bat
* Execute pcterm.exe
* Type ./EBOOT.PBP - MasterBoy should start if all files are in the folder
* Create a romdir.ini file containing the following text: dir=/
* Go to Load ROM, select / and select a ROM in this folder.
* Do exactly as described for the USB method. Now when saving the .pal.ini file to your harddrive, the PSP will directly read it from there, without ever failing. So you just have to press Ctrl+S (save) in notepad and R+Start (load state) on PSP to see the effect of your modification.
* In this case, you don't need the kernel version

Thanks for your comments :)
