Description

So I used save states to RNG abuse a Pokemon when I was finished I went to save but the game tells me that my memory memory card is not the same one as before and refuses to save.

Basically I have the exact same problem as this person (in the link) bellow only I can't seem to fix the issue

Can someone help me on saving my game.

History

If you used a GCI folder, you will never be able to save on that savestate, as it will not recognize the memory card anymore. To be able to save when using savestates, you must have loaded from a raw memory card in the first place. Switching to raw from GCI after making a savestate will not work.

So what now?

I mean is it to late to salvage my save states?

#4 Updated by Techjar over 1 year ago

Yes. At this point you will have to either go back to your last save or play the rest of the game with savestates.

:/

So okay
I think I'll go back to my last save
So if I use raw memory card instead when using save states will it work this time?

Thanks anyway
I appreciate the help. Looks like I wasted an entire morning RNGing a Shiny Suicune XD

This is still a valid bug and shouldn't happen unprovoked - I've run into it randomly in other games.

Do you think the bug can be fixed in latter versions of dolphin?

#9 Updated by Mudkip97 over 1 year ago

I'm pretty sure other people will have the same issue especially since more people are stating to RNG abuse the Pokemon games

Try this build and see if the same setup causes issues?
