Terry's Wonderland Save Restoration

I had backed up my hard save (not a save state) when I was using an earlier version of Citra (version 1781), and after reinstalling Windows, I have reinstalled Citra to the current version (1807). When I load my save game, it loads up just fine, but when I try to save again in game, I am getting the error, “Failed to save game! Please re-insert game card when power is turned off.” I even tried reinstalling the 1781 version, but still no luck. Same exact thing happens.

The odd thing is I can start a new game with no active save file, and I am able to save the game just fine every single time. It’s only when restoring my save games that this error happens. Any help is appreciated as I would really not like to start over if possible.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.
  • You are using open source system files for Mii data. This will appear as your Mii having broken graphics, but will not affect the stability of the game. In order to resolve this, please refer to our guide on dumping system files. https://citra-emu.org/wiki/dumping-system-archives-and-the-shared-fonts-from-a-3ds-console/

Wow…I feel so foolish. I actually looked into my Citra log and saw the “unreachable” error, and I decided to look if the file was “read only” and sure enough, it was. After unticking the “read only” portion, I am able to save effectively.
