Nah, my cartridge doesn't save anymore ;_;
Benzychenz posted...Nah, my cartridge doesn't save anymore ;_;There is an easy fix for that. Though you have to know what you are doing.The old Game Boy games didn't use flash memory for saving like GBA/DS/3DS games do. They used SRAM, which was a volatile type of memory that would lose it's contents if power was lost.As a result they required a battery to support the SRAM. This posed a problem when Gold/Silver/Crystal came along, as they added a Real Time Clock chip that caused the battery to drain twice as fast.When Ruby and Sapphire came around on the GBA, they still had a battery, but solely for the RTC chip meaning a flat battery in those games isn't an issue.Anyway, here is a good page on Game Boy Cartridge battery replacement:http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-replace-the-battery-in-a-pokemon-goldsilve/#step1It covers replacing the battery in a copy of Pokemon Gold, but the instructions will apply to all Game Boy games.CAUTION: Be sure to ground yourself by touching a metal surface first, as any static electricity could render the circuit board of the cartridge non-functional.
