    Open/Find battery file (.sav) from vba express with vba-m

    Hi,

    I installed Visual Boy Advance Express in my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (64 bits) machine some time ago, and I have been playing Pokemon Crystal without any problems. Now I would like to continue playing with another emulator: vba-m, since it offers more options.

    My problem is that when I try to open the .gbc file with vba-m, a new .sav file is created in the same folder, and the game starts from the beginning as if it was the first time.

    When I played with vba express, no .sav file was created in that folder because I did not specify any path for save state or battery. I am new to emulators, and I did not know that it might be a good idea to specify a path.

    I have performed an experiment where vba express saves the .sav file in the current folder. Then it is possible to continue playing with vba-m.

    I assume/suppose that the .sav file for my original game was saved somewhere by vba express. But I haven't managed to find it. In the VisualBoyAdvance.cfg file it is written that "# Directories. Not setting one them makes the file go the rom directory." (sic). But as I mentioned above, no .sav file is saved in the folder of the .gbc file when I open my original game with vba express.

    I have found almost none documentation for the vba express, and I have been reading different forum threads, but without any results.

    Does somebody know where vba express saves the .sav file by default?

    Is there a way to go around and open this file with vba-m?

    Thanks in advance

    P.D: By the way, I use vba-m with wine, but I don't think this is the cause of the problem.

    Solved. Using https://askubuntu.com/questions/8939...ive-for-a-file , I found the location of the .sav file.
