Yep...totally just spent maybe 2 hrs typing in these passwords and scanning the thread... hit back then hit home button to stop playing. But I had a few more min so turned it on again... none of them saved... it just didn't save....back to 24 cards.... ugh... gonna be a few days til I do that all again.
You need to back back out of whatever screen you are on until you see the black screen with "Now Saving" before you ever turn off your game when navigating around the menus (I believe it saves auto after every song so if you just play a song you don't need to worry as much. I always back all the way back out to the "touch to start" screen on the game before I completely quit out anyway, just in case.
Actually, the third pass for Squall in the Japanese version is 'sou iu hanashi wa PASU', meaning basically "I'll pass on that". I thought the same thing may have been the case before, but now that Squall's third JP pass is known, the currently unknown translated ones still apply.
I tried a ton of permutations of "R1 for trigger" or "Triggered Critical" yesterday and got nowhere for Squall's last password, but knowing my luck I may have had the right thing and just spelled it incorrectly. Did the same with Magic Pot, then realized I was spelling Elixir wrong after about the 30th password attempt haha.
