as the title suggests. is there any possible way to fix this? the game says "failed to save" and "no back up memory detected" or if i does save after an hour of two the file is gone. when i started the game it was wiped clean if that helps. i know some of you pit go-ers have some useful info about stuff. if it requires sodering im up for it.

heres a picture of the inside of my game(i didn't take the picture but it does look like this)



i don't play video games too often(or at all really) but this is my favorite game and all help is appericiated. i have work so sorry if i can't answer any questions to help you guys out until then. thank you, thank you, to any and all help!

please no "to the gaming thread responses please", im not a gamer and the response time is far too slow.

There really isn't any solution to this, I got the same problem with mine in the summer. As far as I know, it's not possible changing the battery. Although I wouldn't be too surprised if I wasn't well informed.

Your computer can't run a GBA game? 0.0

Yeah, I picked both of them up again a few summers ago, took me a week to pass through the first game, thinking "this shouldn't take too long".

Lo and behold, five weeks later, finally!

You can actually change the battery, I've done it with my Pokemon Crystal version before, but I don't see a battery in that cartridge... Pokemon has what is basically a watch battery inside of it, so it was easy to find a replacement. I'm not sure what you can do here except buy a new one (which may or may not have the same problem) or download it.

I strongly consider you get yourself a new one, you'll get windows 7 with it too and you dont really need that great of specs to do what you want to do.

If it has a battery I too would guess it would be pretty easy to find and replace. Have you looked at both sides of the circuit board?

i have. i opened it somehow with a really small flat blade screw driver, the back is just flat. looks like a chip haha; pretty amazing how you can waste hours of your life on such a small thing.

Just get an emulator

Unless your computer is something in the range of "built last millennium," it should be able to run an emulator.

And if you really want to go the normal route, I suggest Googling how to change the battery in an Advance Pokemon game. There should be loads of those around.

After reading over the OP again, your memory is shot, not the battery. Silly me. As such, I think your only options might just be a new game or an emulator.

Fixed

I've had this problem before and couldn't find what to do so traded my Gameboy for a Namcon gun and Point Blank.... really wasn't worth it
