If you're using some sort of device (flash cartridge or some other little handheld thing) you may need an additional patch to make it save correctly.

This game emulates best on a computer, so that is probably the best way to go. You also won't need any more patches.

If you're using Virtual Boy Advance, go to Options > Emulator > Save Type. Select Flash 64K and you should be able to save.

If you acquire a save file of the Japanese version and save your file over that, I believe it will work.

If you do the patching yourself, you shouldn't have this problem.

1) Find a CLEAN, <U>unhacked</u> copy of Mother 3 ROM.
2) Download the Translation patch from http://mother3.fobby.net & any possible language you may need.
3) Unzip & use the enclosed patch program on the ROM -- Enable "Create a back-up" option, just to be safe
4) Get yourself a drink & wait for it to complete.
5) Enjoy!

If you do it yourself, it should work OK. However, you may want to check the list of "Good Emulators" on the Mother 3 Translation site just to be sure as those are known to work.

Once you're in the game, find a frog to save... They're camped out throughout the game, including some weird looking ones (like the Magical Butterfrog).
