    Gameboy color emulator lr-gambatte

    I've played Links Awakening DX on the Gameboy color and made some save states. I copied those save states and the save file to my computer as a backup. Deleted the save files and state files from retropie to make a clean image backup file of my retropie setup.

    Put the save states and save files back in.

    Open the game, the save file works, but the save state dosen't. It's like it dosent even exits. Nothing happens when I try to load them. I even tried using a different gameboy emulator the lr-mgba but same thing.

    Any idea to why? =/

    Save states are not always portable between emulators, so a save state from lr-gambatte might not worth with lr-mgba . Is the emulator version the same as the one you used for the save states ? Sometimes an upgrade of the emulator makes it incompatible with previous versions' save states.


  • @lesk ... and it's more likely that a battery savestate gamename.srm will work more reliable and may be portable to other emulators ;)

    Hmm maybe it's because of an emulator upgrade. I played the game for a couple of month before I did the backup. And after I think I did an update. Thanks, I did not know it might cause a problem. At least the "normal" save file works.

    Thanks, yeah the normal game save seems to work just fine ^^
