> Hey all

> I'm having some probs saving on my game doctor sf6. I like playing RPG's but can't seem to save them. How does saving work on this system? As far as i can figure, when i save during the game, it should save into the Game doctors BRAM so that i can continue... I also have thought that i can backup these saves to disk via "write BRAM" and also "load to BRAM" to send from disk to game doctor. Am i correct in thinking so?

I haven't verified it, but I think you are correct.

> The problem seems to be that the game doctor isn't saving anything to memory when i save during the game. Whenever i try to reload, theres nothing in memory.

There might be a problem with the Game Doctor.

So you can save in the game and when you load in the game (without powering down) there is nothing there? Sounds like you're doing it correctly. One standard caveat -- you are using an external power supply for the Game Doctor I hope?

The GD probably has a self test function, run it a few times and see if the SRAM passes every time.

Do the games you have use a header on them? If so there could be a problem if the header specifies less SRAM than the game uses.
