Question about Nintendo Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island for Game Boy Advance

Have recently purchased a second hand game and am unable to save any progress/files in levels. Each new time game is turned on, the files come up as "NEW" and all previous progress is lost. How do I save my files/progress?

    Hi Issken,

    Is this internal battery different to the rechargeable one in the SP which we are able to take out? Because, we can still play the game, it just won't save our progress.

    Thanks again,
    Leesa

    Thanks for your help. Have found a link that explains how to take the internal game battery out and replace it, so will have a go at that.

If you are having trouble saving your games this means that the internal battery is dead and you will have to replace it.

I have not had to replace one on a Gameboy so it will take alittle bit to get the instruction for you. However you will need a special screw driver to open the case. So if you know somone in your area that does game service then I would check with him to see if he can help you.

    The internal battery in the game is not rechargeable. Most of them are like watch batteries.

There is an internal battery in these that keeps the saved data. This battery is most likely the problem it is like a watch battery but maybe alittle bigger. It is different than the rechargeable or replaceable batteries that you can take out and replace. You would have to take the gameboy apart to get to the storage battery.

Flashdrive keeps deleting


With all the hours and effort put into progressing in a video game, protecting your saved files becomes an important matter.

Creating a backup on a flash drive ensures that your game will be preserved. Having a copy is also handy if you get a new computer or if you merely want to keep your character safe for a sequel that allows you to import your progress from a previous game.

While you cannot save a game to a flash drive while playing, transferring or copying a saved game file to a flash drive is a simple process.

Locate the saved game files on your hard drive.
The location will depend on the game that you are playing (see Below)

Tips & Warnings

BioWare games save within the "BioWare" folder created in the My Documents folder.
Most games purchased through Steam will be saved under Program Files>Steam>Steam Apps>[Username.]

A Game independently installed will likely create its own folder within Program Files.
You may need to visit the game developer support site to help track down that game's specific location.
Open your flash drive.
Click and drag the entire saved game folder to the flash drive to make a copy.

Depending on the amount of file data, this may take a few minutes to complete.
Do not delete this folder on your hard drive or uninstall the game until you have verified that the saved game files work on other computers.


To transfer the saved game, plug the flash drive into a computer with the same game installed. Open your flash drive. In a separate window, open the same directory location where you found the saved game on the other computer.


Click and drag the saved game folder on your flash drive to the game folder on the new computer.
If a window pops up asking if you would like to overwrite similarly named files, click "Yes."

I can't save any progress on the Professor Layton nintendo ds lit


After clicking "save" make sure you wait until it's done saving. You should click save then wait a minimum 15 seconds. Put the DS down and check your fridge for some leftover noodles, come back and turn it off. You should never click "save" then turn off your DS moments later.

If it isn't that, then make sure you aren't accidentally shutting off during parts of the game where it autosaves.

Also, keep the game stored in a non-humid area that is fairly warm. It could be being read wrong.

Whats happened is you have started from a new game while an existing save was there. There is no way to save your current progress, however the origional save will still be there. You can either turn it off and start again from the previous save (by selecting the top option at the first menu) or if you want to start right from the begining and be able to save you will need to delete the old save file. I believe the reason for this was that so many kids losts their game that may have taken month (or years) of playing by a friend or sibbling trying to play the game from the start and then save - which would delete the other game save.

Saving the game data on Professor Layton and the Curious Village


The game should, of course, overwrite existing saves without problem (even if second hand)

You are not prompted to save when you quit (since there really isn't a quit or even a return to menu)

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

It should also be noted that some (if not many) of the "second hand" copies purchased on eBay are actually pirated copies that have caused problems for players (including stopping with blacked out screens during the game)

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

My progress is not saving on Professor Layton


i had this problem and then I realised that when you click save, you then need to select which file you want to save (generally in your own name) it will then pop up with "progress saved" - simply selecting save is not enough
