    either i m doing something very wrong or my emulator jsut does not want to save state no matter what i try, every time i start it after save state and exit, it does a cold boot, and no copied files are left there(like installed software). any ideas?

    yes. the shortcut you use to boot the first time should specify the rom and the flash file, but the next time you want to run it, do not use the same shortcut, use a new one that just has the switch /s pocketpc.dss

    the image file contains eveythign you need, and it is the holder for the state. If you are to specify the rom image as well the state file, then you're telling the emulator to load that rom and use the statefile as it's new state file.

    now another problem, when i save state and exit with the gps software running (iGo 2006) , when i return to the emulator loading the state, everything shows up ok until it tries to load some files of the "storage card", when it errors. from what i see in settings and file manger it restores the shared folder/storage card too. the navigation software craps out, closes, and doesn t work even if i try again, if i soft reboot the emulator, the storage card isn t there any more in file manager but still appears ok in settings. If i save state and exit while in the today screen with no software running everything works perfectly from what i can tell.
    any more idea? sorry to be a pain
    cheers

    yes. this used to happen to me with tomtom with the previous emulator. I'm speculating here, but my guess is that when you restore the state, the storage may not be online instantly, and it maybe that iGo is polling the file system too soon after the emulator goes online. Since it doesn't find the maps, it craps out.

    I would say you should do one of the following:

    have a shortcut in the start menu and have the state always start on the today screen. Then, have a script, like autohotkey (google it) that start the emulator, waits for it to load, then clicks on the screen to start your gps program. painful I know, especially since you have to wait for it.

    Alternatively, you can install the igo app on the main memory. you only have 32mb to mess with there and I've not figured out how to increase that yet. Increasing the memory only seems to increase the available ram and not storage space... shame as it would have been nice to have an image with everythign on it.

    Anway, hope that helps.

    yup, it helps

    i belive there was a command line option for flash memory, if that would work, and we could install to flash, that should be good
    i ll see if i can do something
    i ll post everything i find
    thanks
    edit: it won t work that way it seems, i ll keep on trying

    yeah, I managed to get the flash memory going with the old version of the emulator but not this one sadly. So I guess it's only a matter of time before the preview becomes a full release and we get a fix.
