Phantasy Star Retranslation not saving.

09 Sep 2019, 01:45

The original Phantasy Star rom saves, but the retranslation either restored from the Mega SG or started and progress saved; doesn't retain the save.

That's because megasd enanles the backup ram saving only for the games it knows that use them, and detectd the game by the rom hash, so translating it changes the hash.
I think you can make it work with a cfg file.
Create a text file, in the same directory that contains the rom, with thr same name, but with .cfg extension (instead of .sms) and write this in the file:
SRamAddr=800000
SaveBackup=1

It does, doh. Forgot I enabled "hide extensions for known file types". Thanks.
