I have a 128kb sav file that I want to use for Pokémon Fire Red. This sav file was not created by another emulator.
The filename of the sav matches that of the ROM - the sav file originated from the ROM file I have.
The ROM file is in the same directory as VBA, yet when I run it in VBA, no "Loaded battery" text shows up, and when I get past the game's main menu, the game acts as if I've never played even though there is a save file in the directory.
Importing through File → Import → Battery file results in no change.
Save type in Options → Emulator → Save type is Automatic/Flash 128k.
