Zelda NES Not Saving


Posted: 18 Feb, 2020 01:46

The game doesn't appear to be saving under any conditions. HC or Not, if I close the rom, when I come back my saves won't be there.. I tried to run it as admin. That didn't work. I assigned directories, and chose resume old play session. None of these things have worked.. Anybody else had this problem?

Which emulator are you using?

Are you using the actual save command in-game? Zelda 1 only lets you save after death (or with a second controller combo).

I've tried both of those ways as well as resume rom from shutdown, or whatever it's called. Then I tried all of that on a separate computer. Frankly I've probably tried a few other ways as well..

Shit, well, it's occuring to me now that I haven't tried a different zelda rom, but I thought this was the one that I had used before that had worked just fine.. I dunno.. Maybe I'll try that next..

It seems that the rom might not be at fault here. Recently I played Ys 3 and just like in your case with Zelda, RANes did not write saves in any folder after I closed emulator. Like on some pirated cartridges: saves only exist until you turn off the system.
