Hello guys!
I was looking for a well-frequented Nintendo-Forum online, and so I found this site here!
I've got a problem with Zelda Majoras Mask i downloaded 2 days ago. (legal download, i paid for it!). I am playing this game the first time!
I know, MM is famous for it's strange ways of saving the game file, but after researches online i think i know how to save the files.

So I started playing, got the ocarina back, traveled back in time (this means, I saved my game) and continued on playing. I did researches in the city and travelled across the lands and later I turned off my Wii after I travelled back in time one more time. (this means, the game should be saved).

But yesterday i wanted to continue, I started from the point I travelled back in time the first time. So, i lost things as for example the bomb bag or i still was a Deku-Kid....

I thought of I did something wrong with saving, so I continued playing and got to the swamps. There I found an owl-statue and saved the game there (I know, it's only an "emergency-safe-point", but I didnt want to travel back in time one more, so I did this. I turned the Wii off.
Today in the morning, when starting, I still have to start game from the point I travelled back in time first time - that means:
Deku-kid again and I've reached nothing -.-

Although I have to say: Noone except me played on that Wii-Console.

What do you recommend?
You see a mistake on my way of playing that game? or maybe software is broken (download went wrong) - should i delete and redownload?
I'm a huge Zelda-Fan (and of course, Link :] ) and I really want to play that game - without buying and old N64...

Thanks in advance!

I would try redownloading the game. Yours may be buggy. If that doesn't work, contact nintendo at http://support.nintendo.com

How are you turning off your Wii? Are you pressing the power button, or cutting of all power i.e. flipping a switch that controls a plug, or unplugging the console.
I have the MM download, and it won't record your save unless you turn off the Wii via the power button on either the console or the remote.

@Pinkie_Pikpik:
Whoa, thats a strange thing you're saying.
I really have to admit that I have no clue how I turned off the Wii.
The way get it's power by a multi-way-distributer (is this correct???).
Sometimes I turn my Wii off via power button on the remote, but also sometimes, when I or someone else doesn't continue watching TV, I turn off everything by hitting the "universal switch"...

Interesting thing, I'll try this out. I don't really understand why it works in that way, but we will see...
Thx!

Do you exit to the Wii Menu before you turn the Wii off?

I have Zelda Majora's Mask on Wii Virtual Console and it works quite fine so probably is an issue of your console

@ KingMike:
No, I don't do this.
There are only two options for me:
Turning of by pressing the power button on my remote or hitting the switch on the multi-way-distributer...

I played Zelda - OoT (also VC) and I never have had any problems with my saved files...
Really strange.
But I'll try an going to Wii Menu and then turning off via power button.... May it works.
Thx.

e/ Whatever exactly it is - it works now.
I'm using the procedere: Travel back in time - Go to Wii Menu - Turn off Wii via remote - turn off electricity.
Now it works.
Really strange game.

OoT VC worked wihout any problem.... -.-

Thx for all answers!

It is an strange problem. When I always play my Wii or Wii U I always go to the Wii menu and do power in the wiimote to off the system. Maybe try to download it again.
