Your log file got corrupted. This is why we advice users to always use your in-game save files most of all to record your progress, not save states. Save states are only meant to be used within single gaming sessions, not beyond them. Using them to record progress again and again will result in any faults in the emulation never getting flushed out, which makes them very unstable in the long run.

Sadly, I did use an in-game save. it didn’t really work.

Can you elaborate on that?

I saved the game with the in-game save file. when i reloaded the game, it didn’t save at all and i was back to square one
