Pause the game, go down to save, then follow the prompts and your game will save. On some really old games, saving is impossible as the battery in the game will've timed out. If you can not save your game even after trying a few times, then I'm sorry, but there's no way to save your game.

If the battery dies (the factory ones are 16 years old!) you can unscrew the cartridge and replace the battery. The replacement is a 3 volt cmos battery (2025). You can buy the special screwdriver online. Ebay has them for cheap. I made mine by melting a plastic pen and pressing it against the screw. Wait for it to cool for a few minutes then try to unscrew it. Good luck!

hello, my game says it is impossible to save because there is "already a saved game file." what is the issue here?

Press start, go to save game, click on it and keep pressing 'yes' until it says the save is completed.

Hold down the start button
Guest answered:

Hold down start it should come up with a menu bar on the right side of the screen. Go down to save.

Blackw3ll answered:

Hold start button until menu bar on right appears. Then, simply go down to save. If it has a problem saving then the battery needs replacing.
