I decided to play my copy of Sapphire randomly today and I got the message that "The internal battery has run dry" and my heart stopped for a second, but I figured out it only affects time-based events in the game and that my save file is still intact.
My question is, how long would it be before the battery powering the saves runs dry? This has happened on my old copy of Pokemon Gold for GBC - my save file was deleted and it can no longer save a game - and I'm sure by now it's happened to some other of my old Game Boy games. But all of my GBA games are intact, so I'm wondering how long before I should expect them to die too? --- Operation Rainfall Xenoblade Chronicles - released The Last Story - Q3 2012 Pandora's Tower - TBA?

Short answer - The battery in the GBA games works differently than the GBC games. The only thing you will ever miss out on in the GBA games is time based events, your save file is safe.
FFIX is definitely in my top 5 games of all time. The last time I played through it was Christmas last year and I cried like a baby at the end. It's beautiful. --- QT x314159. glory of power metal is an anagram of Lame Flowerpot Orgy. ~ kirbymuncher
