A new file - professor layton

There are 3 files to save too on the professor layton game. All the files have been used. I start a new game and it allows me to overwrite a file when i save the game as i go, however after 1 hours worth of play - my file disappears and the origional file appears. This has happened to me three times. How can i delete a file?

The game should, of course, overwrite existing saves without problem

While the game does have a few set save points, the best way to save (which can be done at any time) is to use the Save option in the trunk (some players forget about this)

If you save into a save slot doing this and it's not there when you next restart the game, then something is wrong

If you purchased the game "second hand" on eBay, then you may have ended up with a pirated copy (these have caused various problems for players including stopping during the game)

The game doesn't have an option to delete the save files

If you are confident that saving just isn't working and you're unable to return the game for replacement or refund, one drastic course of action may be to corrupt the save (by quickly turning off the DS while it saves), thus causing the game to say the save is corrupted and make a new save file ... naturally, this should only be done as a last resort

Simply select New Game from the menu and overwrite the existing save file (this is the recommended method)

The game does not offer an option to delete save files (although it is possible using the arguably risky method of purposely corrupting the file by, say, turning off the DS as it saves)

The game doesn't have an option to erase save files

The best method is to merely overwrite the save files

It is possible to "erase" a save file by corrupting it (such as turning off the DS as it saves), but this should, of course, only be done at your own risk

I am trying to delete the saved files on professor layton and the curious village as i want to give it to someone for a christmas presnt. Could you help please/


Load a save file you want to delete. Hit save on the same slot, and then eject the game while it's saving. Load the game again, it'll give you a message saying it corrupted a file and was deleted. Do the same for the remaining files, this doesn't erase your own file.

It worked for me hope it works for you too.
