My Donkey Kong '94 (Game Boy) save files got erased. 6 years worth of data, poof. First Super Metroid, now Donkey Kong '94. Makes me wonder what's next... if those games were made in 1994... well, God can only hope Phantasy Star IV doesn't come next.

Though it's probably an obvious answer, have any of your games files get wiped out? If so, which ones?

    Missingno must have been hiding in there

      That would be an explanation, because a couple of times on the file screen, all three files had jumbled-looking numbers on 'em, and Mario couldn't walk to ANY of 'em.

        I hate it when things like this happen, the worst one that happened with me was Pokemon: Red Version when the save battery died on it. My save data on my Super Nintendo games also got wiped out if someone tripped over the controllers. (No! Not my almost beaten Link to the Past and Super Mario RPG files! :cry: )

          ah. the only one i can recall is similar to turbo's. i had pokemon yellow and my saved game got erased after playing it for so long. i once heard that the playstation magazine company, playstation underground had this demo disc that would wipe out your memory card files if you played a demo of viewtiful joe 2

              Missingno. doesn't erase files, why can't people realize this? That was just an exaggeration.

                if you capture missingno and keep him your file will getr deleted, its a glitch.

                      The save battery in all my Pokemon games also went out. It made me mad. I almost had every pokemon from the 1st gen to 2nd gen. I was so upset. Every once in a while, Super Mario World and Link to the Past gets erased, but I'm always able to start them up again.

                        I had a Pokemon Game where I had this extremely Powerful Butterfree LV 100. (It was able to wipe out the Entire Elite 4 and All of Gary's Pokemon with the exception of his Jolteon, which it got down to like 2 HP. The rest of the squad was all like LV2s because I trasferred a lot of PKMN to Crystal) After facing the elite 4 one time (and losing), Iturned off the game and when I turned it back on, the memory got corrupted.

                          another reason I say emulation is the best... Cos you can back up your saves and save anywhere.....Once before emulation I was playing Phantasy Star 2 and my friends little brother erased all out saves

                            So keep it in a place where he won't reach it.

                                Not entirely. It can still save.

                                  Not on my pokemon yellow. The one save file said it was corrupted.

                                    Very reliable source there.

                                    Trust me, I got Missingno. on every file I made, never lost my data once. It's just an urban legend.

                                      Yeah well, I'm pretty sure Missingno. caused MY game to get erased. Thankfully, I bought another copy, and it's just fine. Absolutely no sign of Missingno. (that I know of)

                                      Not only did it get erased, but the game just plain stopped working right. It wouldn't work well, it wouldn't save.
