    I believe you need to go into options and change "GBA Cartridge Backup Media" to something other than None.

    Thanks for your fast replies ^.^

    I;ve been there already;
    I've done that, the game is not listed on the site yet. Its Tomb Raider: Underworld , and I;ve even tried using all of the gba backup cartridge media options and resetting the game, i get the same message! :S

    You have to change the nds backup cartridge media, not gba backup cartridge that WhiteZero sugggested. After you change the save type, you have to save the setting and restart the emu or reload the game.

    Make the game run faster?
    1. Update drivers/dx runtimes.
    2. Better PC.
    3. Tinker with the 3d renderer settings.
    4. Wait for a new version.

    Assuming you have the correct savetype selected, you might need to delete your .sav file (Battery folder). It may have become corrupted. Other than that, it could be an emulation error/copyright protection, which you can do nothing about.

    Try fiddling with your mic options in the control panel, or try a program called audacity. If it fails somehow, well the game may not be playable with this emu at this stage. Try other emulator like DeSmume or Ideas

    lol, he speaks the truth, for noobs anyway
