    Default VBA Pokemon FireRed Save Problem

    Hi All,

    I had this problem, when i tried to save the game using the save option from inside the game i got the "please exchange the backup memory" message.
    after searching the web for hours i found a way to fix it and now i can save.
    but, the price is starting the game all over again.. which is a high price to pay for me

    i tried messing with other programs and with the import and export options and i found out that the problem is that the sgm save file is storing the save options and thats why even though i change the options and fix everything in the software.. it will still wont allow me to save the game properly .
    so im asking u, is there a way to fix the sgm file.. or some way to convert it into a good *.sav file.. please help me find the solution

    thanks in advanced, Shinon

    i already did it.. the save type is automatic and the flash is 128k.. i told u i solved the save problem but the older save is still not allowing me to in-game save (battery save)
