GSC Stadium 2 question
« on: February 24, 2019, 02:59:41 pm »
As we know, resetting the game in Pokémon Stadium 2's GB Tower during the cloning glitch can create a bad clone. Specifically, you have to reset when the "saving" message appears at the bottom of the screen.

I noticed today while clearing my save data via GB Tower (with Up+Select+B sequence) that the same "saving" (or at least a similar one, I didn't pay close attention to fully confirm) message appeared at the bottom of the screen. So if you power off the game at this point, is it possible to create a playable but glitched save, and what would this do to the save file?

✿ Hi, I'm Evie. Transgender woman but spiritually doesn't believe 'male'/'female' needs to be defined; lives more stereotypically like a woman/I'm a 'girly' nerd who discovered herself. Call me whichever pronouns you like. :)

Feel free to contact me here about anything regarding the site.

Forgiveness. I feel that the more people pray to our greatest source/God/mathematical equality for world peace, the more and more it manifests into reality (until our next spiritual death).

Thank you Nyapon for this lovely artwork. :3

That's not impossible. I think the Stadium 2 emulator has a copy of SRAM in the N64's RAM, and sends it to the Game Boy cartridge (that's what the message indicates); so yes, you could create a partially-written save file using this. Unless there's a safeguard, but I heavily doubt it.
However, the checksums might not match, so the game might end up loading the backup save.
