I must be doing something wrong


Good Afternoon,

I bought a Neo Myth N64 some years ago and only used it once.  Now I would like to play Paper Mario but I can't get the game saves to work.

There was no documentation with the cart but reading your forums I think I've done the right thing.  I loaded up the ROM and changed the Save type to FLASH and burn it to the cart - I don't have the SD card version.

When I play the game it does not save.  From what I have read I need to press reset and it copies the save game from the cart to the GBA memory port but then I select the game again there is no save game.

Someone else in the forums had similar problems but I think they updated the firmware to fix it.  I appear to have v4 hardware with v1 firmware.  I'm disappointed that to upgrade it I have to purchase another - once of use - tool for $50.

Can someone please tell me whether I am correct ?

Thanks in advance

You do need to upgrade the core fw but well the onboard battery could be dead.This is why it is recommended to get an SD gba card.
