now first, you should change the file format to .sgm in order to run it in the emulator, next, just put in the same location of the rom.
run the rom, and the save should be running to.

if it doesn't work, or if you don't understand something, tell me!!

out and off.....

i tried what you said and it said unsupported visualboyadvance save game version 13.

it didn't work? :huh:
what version of VBA are you using?
I have the old 1.7Beta and it works perfectelly fine for me...
It can also be because of the save tipe you're using.I'm using the Automatic save option,and it stills gives no problems...
strange... :alien2:

have you tried seeing what save type you're using?
you could also try to get your hands on a newer version of VBA,1.6 it's kinda old,but as longs as it works!! :P
but tell me,the emulator gives you that error in both save formats?

no no no don't change the file type all you have to do is load the game then when the game is loaded simply go to file>>import>>gameshark snapshot. becuse sps is a sharkport file type. try this and let me know what happend @ webmaker88@hotmail.com

So i have a .sps file sat here. I load the game in VBA then click File>>Import>>GameShark Snapshot. It loads the game, as if it was the first time of using and askes me to make a new game.

it means its not compatible with your game.

Try changing the name to match the name of your ROM file, minus the file extension.

VBA's Import feature doesn't rely on the filenames matching each other, you know.

exactly, the save is likely for another region of the game
