Sonic 3 & Sonic 3 Complete not saving at all.

14 Aug 2019, 04:02

Sonic 3 and Sonic 3 complete are not savibg my data. Other games for mega drive are, like Shining in the Darkness. Phantasy Star for mk iii may also not be saving. I tried using various patches and different roms, and even got a new SD card.

It's because it's a larger ROM, or something to that effect. It's possible to create a little config file that forces the MegaSD to let Sonic 3 Complete to save, but I think they're just going to white-list it in the next firmware anyway. I'd hold off changing anything unless you absolutely need to play/save the game before the next firmware drops.

Sonic 3 should save correctly, unless it's an unknown revision. When loading the game, take a look at the screen with data that appears, and check which value it's set in mapper. It shouldn't be 00.

For sonic 3 complete, please have a look at viewtopic.php?f=25&t=1062&p=4554#p4552
