no, i copied all 5 BoF2 files to the new folder (cause didn't wanna risk losing any BoF2 save data)

or should i go ahead and reinstall 1.7.2 into the old folder? cause i really dont wanna redo over 5 hours of play time >.< or something like that, i think its more like 3 hours

VBA just doesn't lose stuff like that. One thing people need to realize: save states are a good thing. Relying on battery files is usually bad. Using a save state you have both at the same time and the save state is guaranteed to work.

Anyway, you should have backed up your data if you were concerned about losing it. You may have different settings now, etc...

It is hard to say what is going on, but look for your .sav files in your harddrive.

well sorry to point out that my save states are also gone, so something happened when i replaced the old VBA, i cant tell ya what, but im just gonna have to restart my game now :S

and most of the time i forgot about backing up anything, now unless its extremely important then i probably wont back it up, but still :???:

oh well, thx for the help anyways

A loss which can be so easily avoided if you buy a gba and the real game instead of downloading it from the net...

I've been using VBA intensively for the last 3 years, the emu doesn't lose stuff. I always install the new version over the old and it works like a charm since it detects all your previous version's directories. The only thing it comes to mind is that you changed the battery size and therefore it is not detecting the save data of your old saves...
