"Invalid savegame" using r4sdhc need help!!! 

Hi there!
Got a problem with my saving files, hope you can help me.
I`m using the r4sdhc card with the newest kernel version and newest version of scummvmds 0.11.1
The games work perfectly(day of tentacle,fate of atlantis,monkey island 1), but when i save a game and restart my nintendo ds, i cannot load my saved games.it says "invalid savegame". Twisted Evil i`m freakin out, cause i tried many things.No problem there with Fate of atlantis, but with the other both games.What can be my mistake?hope for answer.Thank you
P.S. excuse my bad, simple english

Well, that's the latest unstable beta version. 0.11.1 is the version you should use if you want maximum stability.

tried the other version....same problem!only fate of atlantis seems to save properly, monkey island and day of tentacle make invalid savegames.
perhaps the files in my game folders make the difference?

Atlantis: "Atlantis.000" and "Atlantis.001"

Day of Tentacle: "Monster.SOU" "Tentacle.000" "Tentacle.001"
"Tentacle.exe"

Monkey Island: "Monkey1.000" "Monkey1.001" "track1-track23"

got no idea what the problem could be

Just so you know, Tentacle.exe doesn't need to be in the game folder.

No idea. But others are using ScummVM on R4 with success. Some things you can try:

1. Make sure you've correctly DLDI patched the ScummVM .nds files using the correct DLDI

2. Make sure your R4 has the latest kernel

3. Test the same game files (DOTT & MI1) with the latest stable desktop ScummVM (i.e. Win/OSX/etc) and see if loading saved games works there.

oh i thought that the new kernel and scummvmds 0.11.1 is already DLDI patched....
point 2 and 3 are positive, no probs there.
got the link for the actually DLDI patch?
can`t find it.
I have got a r4sdhc V1.21..Thank you so much!

Yeah, most carts do auto-DLDI-patching these days. It was just something you should test.

Hmm... Is that the same as R4DS?

EDIT: OK, after some googling on GBATemp it seems R4sdhc is a cheap clone with bad support and bad reputation. It's possible ScummVM doesn't fully work on it. But I still think DLDI might be the issue. It should be this one:

R4sdhc isn't mentioned explicitly, but try it anyway.

r4sdhc kits are clones of the r4 running a decrypted and hacked version of the final 1.18 loader before team r4 called it quits thanks to a law suit from nintendo.

what that means is the dldi autopatching or ability to allow card write access may be broken in the hacked firmware. the r4 autopatches dldi there is no need to have the dldi on the card or to patch before hand.

you really should head over to gbatemp.net and post in the r4 section but beware of flames. the r4 is outdated, dead, and gone... and people will remind you of that constantly.

If you're using an SDHC card bigger than 2Gb, you might want to try with one that's 2Gb or less. Another user reported problems with larger cards.
