[Solved] The Memory Stick Used To Start This Game Is Not Inserted

RE: The Memory Stick Used To Start This Game Is Not Inserted
It doesn't change anything;p quite the opposite, it stores whole memory unchanged and those games uses completely useless protection to avoid saving over different save. It basically saves in pair, one pair is saved on memory stick the other one is kept in game memory hence in savestate, if we load a savestate done before saving game normally for the last time, the pair doesn't match and the game cannot save this is totally user fault mixed with stupidness of game, not ppsspp issue or ss fault.
MH games are extra retarded over this because they require existing save before allowing to save, so cannot just delete the existing save to fix it as in few other games which does use same kind of protection.

It's very stupid problem but not without hope if somebody wants to bother saving his save instead of simply load the game normally loosing few hours of gameplay.

As I said, the WHOLE SAVE is stored within game memory so it's inside savestateTongue and proper original save can be recreated fully from it without last 16 bytes, which first I thought to be some kind of hash, but it actually never seem to change between saves so I guess that's some kind of random ID and those bytes can be left as they were. In MHp3rd HD(normal version will most likely differ) the save is stored in 0x12AE200 bytes from memory load address and takes 0x121000 bytes. Just dump that from game memory to first 0x121000 bytes of existing save file and unmatched pair of saves will be matched next time you try savingTongue. This could work in all MH games, through obviously the offset for the address and the size of save will differ. - Custom PPSSPP Shaders! - simple CE scripts to help creating CWCheats, - CWCheat workarounds.
