Can't change savegame
« on: February 06, 2016, 01:39:05 AM »
Hi

I lost my savegame for Zelda a while ago and today i wanted to put a new save game on my SD card. Now the problem ist, that is always uses the same save game.

I found a thread with the same problem, but the solution to power the N64 on an boot to menu then turn off and copy the save game didn't help. The savegame never gets loaded from the SD card but the wrong one is always being copied back to the SD.

Does anyone have a solution for that?

Thanks for the help

Could you please upload both the wrong and the right savegame here so I can take a look if everything is alright with the new savegame?

Are you sure that you replaced the exact file name that matches the rom name plus the save extension?Also make sure to use the latest version  of the menu..

Thanks for your file sanni, but it didn't work. I then formatted and reflashed the menu and now there is no savegame loaded at all. I think my myth doesn't check for savegames at all.

Is the Zelda OoT rom also on the SD card or is it programmed into the Neo2 cart's flash?

Can you start a new game in Ocarina of Time and after the intro sequence press start and save the game, then press reset to go back into the Myth menu and then power down the N64 and have a look if there was a save file created for Zelda and then without renaming it put it into a *.zip and upload it here?

Also if you create a new save file this way, will it be loaded next time you start the game?

Yes, the game is also on the SD and the savegame created is also loaded, but not from the SD i think. The created savegame is attached.

Are you sure this the save game from the \menu\n64\save\ folder on the SD?

I ask because it's 100% identical to the save file I uploaded.

Hm, i checked again and now there is no savegame loaded. The savegame i uploaded was from the SD card, but i realized that it's the savegame i downloaded from you.

So now there is no savegame copied from the myth to the SD and there is no savegame loaded from the SD...

what is the version of the menu?
it could even be a hw issue with the interface and the menu fails to write the sd save contents back to nsram...

Here are some games that use the same save type as Zelda OoT, you can try out one of those and see if they write the save file back to the SD card. Remember, you need to actually save in-game, not only start the game and quit again.

F-Zero X
Harvest Moon 64
Major League Baseball featuring Ken Griffey Jr.
Mario Golf
The New Tetris
Super Smash Bros.
WCW/NWO Revenge

I tested it with Super Smash Bros. today, and there is also no Savegame created.
