I lost my Fire Emblem Awakening Save file, just up and vanished

Issue:
I recently launched Citra after installing Supernova Sun, and when I launched FE Awakening, my save file was completely gone. There was nothing in the folder it should be in, and a system restore did nothing.

I am at a loss for how to find or restore my file. Any advice?

You appear to be using both a mod and a cheat code. These things often don’t go well together. Cheats are essentially memory injects. They only work on one version of a game, the one they were made for. That’s because any edit to the game itself will change the memory addresses. So the cheats would be injecting the wrong code into the wrong memory addresses. This can sometimes cause save files to become corrupted. Now, when a save file becomes corrupted, some games just inform you of the corruption, and leave deleting the save file to the user. Other games just straight up delete the save data.

Disable the cheat code, then restart the emulation. If the save file does not return, there’s a good chance that it’s gone for good. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thank you, I will try this.

Didn’t work. It’s fine though.
