Help Noob here
« on: March 22, 2020, 10:29 AM »
My buddy let me borrow his Ever Drive v 2.5. I was trying to add a few games  and who knows what i touched. Now none of his save files work!! All the save files exist inside the saves folder. Every time I load a game suck as mario 64 it shows zero starts when he had 45 stars. Please save me from his fury.

Rename those save files to match the filename of your games.

If that doesn't work, It's likely that the save was made from a .v64 byteswapped file then a .z64 file or vice-versa. Try using Tool64 to change the extension of the ROM.

With Tool64, right?
Also make sure the region of the save matches the region of the ROM.

Yeah those are all correct. I didnt edit any roms names or save file names.

edit. I found a working Solution. I just downloaded the master save file from this forum. deleted all the saves and replaced it with master list. Then made sure files match, Selected the rom ONLY THEN hit save file to ram, loaded game and bam saves worked.
