I'm trying to play this with an emulator (Genesis Plus for Mac OS X). When I try to
save I get an error "Sorry, I couldn't save because of Media Error. Consult your
Any ideas what is going on?
That happened to me too... even with a real (but pirated) cartridge. It seems there's
some problem... and all the ROMS i have seen, had it.
HEH... update... the reason, as explained by Xavier on the main site, is that RoP uses
EEPROM to save states. Regular games use SDRAM... and so, no emulators (that i know of)
or pirated cartridges support EEPROM. Result: "couldn't save - media error"
Do you know if there is any way to fix this error?
Yes, the way to fix it is to play with an emulator that supports EEPROM emulation.
Luckily for all of us, there is now an emulator that does just that for the PC.
As of March 2010, the EEPROM emulation for Regen is still quite buggy with Rings of
Power. It may seem like it's working sometimes, but won't actually save the data until
the power to the emulator is turned off or the application is closed. You may also save
a bunch of times and die, only to find that it only actually saved the first of those
times for the entire session (all subsequent saves did nothing). I've tested this with
versions 0.85, 0.96, and 0.972.
