As everyone would know most original GSC have died from the dreaded dead battery. My Gold, silver and Crystal all died a long time ago battery wise and stopped saving.
Years ago I replaced my gold version battery. It was a success and it worked. I suspect it'll need yet another battery in the next few years.
Anyway I was bored yesterday night/really early morning today and decided to replace my crystal battery. I forgot how hard it is to pull those connectors off.^-^;;;
I have learnt that it's not a good idea trying to replace a battery at 2am in the morning.
Due to being so tired I started getting frustrated when the bottom connector refused to budge no matter how hard I tried to pry it loose.
I ultimately scratched the circuit board where the battery would normally sit 3 times and you can actually see the scratch marks.o_O
I even scratched my fingers aswell.
I did end up replacing the battery. I am actually shocked the game it's still working despite the scratches. They must have not hit a vulnerable spot.
It's never a good thing to scratch the circuit board usually because it's the main reason the game keeps working.
I'm very very lucky. That's all I can say.
Anyway if anyones wondering yes the game is saving again and the clock is running as normal.
