Is it normal for N64 .eep saves to only be 1kb?
« on: 11/Sep/2019 03:25:13 PM »
I had no issue backing up Majora's Mask with it's flash save, it took a few seconds and the file size is 128k, but when I copy Mario 64 the file save is a tiny 1kb. Is that normal or is what I have no really the original save file?

Forgive me, turns out when I do view details of the file, they say it's 512 bytes. I guess this sounds possible? Or is it a bad file?

Super Mario 64 uses EEP4K (4 Kbits) which is 512 bytes.
