Donkey Kong SNES game won't save.

Yesterday, I bought Donkey Kong Country. The game will not hold a save. Everytime I turn the console off, the saved file is not there when I turn it back on again.

My Pokemon Yellow & Crystal does this. =( I was told it was because the battery that keeps the save thingy working died. I don't know if NES has something like that. Or if it's even true for GBC games, just what I was told.

Could be the save battery

According to SG64, they're pretty cheap to replace

Yeah, most cartridge based games eventually stop saving correctly because of problems with the internal battery.

Ah. I'll have to take it back and see if they can repair that then.
Because it sucks having to play the Mine Cart level over and over, ha.

At the start of the level, instead of jumping in the barrel that launches you to the minecart, jump just over the barrel and hug the wall, should be a warp barrel that sends you near the end of the level.

Another pro tip for fun. At Stop N Go station, when you start the level, walk left immediately as the level starts through the door. Warps you near the end of the level as well.

I actually did a nearly flawless run the first time through, except for the very last Kremlin right before the exit, lol.

Never actually understood why people don't like the minecart levels. I always loved em. I do know about the level warp though.

Only part I find weird is the physics on that part where the track is barely big enough to fit your cart, and the broken ones on it, over and over again for a few jumps.

I guess until I can get the save battery repaired, I'll have to take a day and beat it in one sitting.

Its actually a simple thing to do yourself. All you need is the security bit and a new battery. They sell both cheap on ebay It just looks like a big watch battery lol. Hi tech stuff. If your into the old carts its a solid investment. They will all go dead in time.. If i remember right they are all beyond their expected life at this point.
