Question about Nintendo Pokemon Ruby for Game Boy Advance

1 Answer

My save file was deleted!!!

I had played my Pokemon Leaf Green for 105 hours. I had everything and I had just beat the Elite Four for the thirtieth time. I saved on Route 1 and turned off my game. When I turned it back on, it said my saved file was deleted. Arrrghhh! If anyone can help me, that would be really great. Thank you.

Earlier model video games were distributed in a proprietary cartridge format that was specific to each gaming platform. Examples are games for the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, and Nintendo Game Boy. One advantage of cartridges over CDs is that the save data for the game could be stored directly on the cartridge itself, instead of requiring the system to have a hard drive (e.g. Nintendo Wii, Sony PS3) or requiring the users to buy memory cards (e.g. Nintendo 64, Sony Playstation).



The way that the manufacturers originally designed this built-in rewritable storage for the cartridges was with a kind of RAM (random access memory, like for your computer) called SDRAM. SDDRAM requires constant power to store it's data which means if you turned the game off you would lose your saves. How did the designers cope with this problem? Each cartridge contains a battery that keeps the SDRAM going so that your save data can be stored. Unfortunately, this means that eventually (after several years) the cartridge's internal battery will die and your save data will no longer survive after your system is reset.


More modern cartridge formats, such as some of the newer GameBoy Advance games, use different kinds of RAM (e.g. flash and EEPROM) that do not require constant power to keep their data. However, if you have one of the older games and its battery dies, you are generally out of luck unless you want to try and open it up and replace the battery yourself (not recommended).


if the save is deleted there is no way of recovering it from the memory in these devices. since if it is deleted and then a new save is made the old doesn't exist anymore. the 1's and 0's get overwritten.

Keep the console charged and you shouldn't lose your save's if you need to get back to the same point in the game fast, try using some cheat codes.
