Gameboy Camera Not Reading Properly After 1.9 Update
« on: 20/Jun/2016 12:03:21 AM »
I have to use force gboy to get it to load now, but even so, the save file just shows 0kb now. No other game I tested had this problem.

I'll look into it, but I need some additional information:
  • Which firmware version have you been using when reading the GB camera save still worked?
  • Please take a look at the .gb file with a hex editor: What are the values at offsets 147 hex (327 dec) and 149 hex (329 dec) of the GB camera ROM?
  • What's the file name of the .gb / .sav file?
  • What's the size of the .gb file?
  • Do the first few hundred bytes from the start of the .gb file repeat at offset 4000 hex (16384 dec)?

I added support for GB SRAM sizes 64 kiB and 128 kiB in v0.20 beta (see the post in the "Megadrive SRM ..." thread). This will hopefully enable access to GB Camera saves (128 kiB).
