    Could someone please advise where I might be going wrong:
    Firstly I'm presuming my R4 SDHC card is a fake (I think) as the only firmware I can get it to run on looks like this on the SD card:

    [​IMG]
    So this is how it looks when it works ok and will successfully boot in YSmenu.
    However, I'm lookin to update as I can't play the latest games or any homebrew.

    Following the instructions on the front page of this forum - the DS screen freezes at:

    Top Screen:
    Loading...

    Bottom Screen:
    [blank/black]

    So i'm having to go back to the setup in the image above just to load YSmenu.

    You might have sorted this by now, (at least I hope you have), but I figured I'd post, in case. Why don't you just insert the MicroSD card into your card reader, then go to the drive letter that it's using, to the folder that displays the file you're talking, then go to "ORGANIZE", then "FOLDER AND SEARCH OPTIONS" and finally the "VIEW" tab and then deselect the "HIDE EXTENSIONS FOR KNOWN FILE TYPES" option? Then you change the file extension to the one you want. I've posted a link to an image album that I've just uploaded showing you the options I mean, (I'm assuming you're using Windows but I'm sure that there's an equivalent option in the OS you're using)


    Addendum: At least I would post the images but for some reason it won't let me

    I still get "load rom errcode = -4" with Pokemon Black 2 game (well, the game is patched so I guess it's different from the clean rom)
    this is the game (game link in youtube description):
    Hope I can play it in the next update :(( or anyone can help me add it in infolib so I can play the game?

    Retrogamefan, recently some people released an Etrian Odyssey III patch tweaking some things, but When I try to play it using Ysmenu it shows me error 4, could you or someone help me to make the game run? Since I don't know how to edit the infolib. Here's where you can get the patch: https://mega.nz/#!OR8iiLQT!qyVep5CMQ6w1TipHE9DkKqzg3sdP3FY-WKuQ7G8pnxw

    Thanks!

    hey,i have some issue with this card ,ysmenu works in all games but pokemon b/w 1/2 without memory file is slow in the professor intro then stop at name entry.
    and if the game has a save file it get stuck at saving.
    and soft reset is unstable .
    everything works in original menu but the card has a 2020 timebomb.
    i used the r4isdhc folder.
    thx!

    This will happen depending on the cart, what website is your cart from?

    Sorry, I haven't been as active lately XD. I wouldn't recommend using YSMenu on any cart that runs Wood. You're lucky you didn't brick your card... Try to use the latest community-built version of Wood that is available for your card...

    What website is the card from?

    You may need to use your default firmware to play Pokemon Black 2, I wrote a tutorial solving this issue a while back. Do you want a link?

    Don't count on an update for a while, if ever... He hasn't been on at all lately...

    Hey man, thanks for your reply. It was from r4isdhc.com. I set my 3ds to 2020 and it had indeed the timebomb. I installed YSmenu and renamed the r4.dat to r4.nds. After that it booted in ysmenu and it still worked after 2020 ^^.
    Got a few questions though, i checked the dsi compatible games and there were not many games i will ever play, but when i do want to play a dsi enhanced game i need to boot the r4.nds from what i understand?
    Does ysmenu have a bigger compatibility then the original firmware? Is there some sort of list anywhere, im totaly into "translated"games.

    When i press start>Ysmenu> i get a white screen with nothing on it (seems like it hangs), can i fix this?
    One last question (srry to ask so many questions) , my card supported "quick save" (thought that was something to save on any point in the game, like a snapshot save) is this still possible with the Ysmenu installed?


    thank you so much for helping people out here, that is really awesome.

    Best regards,

    David


    btw, it's kind of funny it have the "bomberman" icon, is that a joke or coincidence? :))

    Thank you , I'm flattered :shy:. To answer all of your questions:
    1. I wrote a tutorial on how to boot DSi-enhanced games on your cart... You can find it here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...-keep-dsi-enhanced-game-compatibility.473955/

    2. YSMenu has better compatibility than your default firmware. However, depending on the cart, it will not boot DSi-enhanced games or games that use a special save format.

    3. That's odd, I'll look into your white screen issue when I have more time. Can you send me a screenshot of your SD before and after you installed it (or at least with the default firmware installed?)

    4. Unfortunately, YSMenu does not support "quick save". Though, I found quick save to be a buggy mess on my card, and I never used it anyways. If you use it, I might suggest some of the other methods on my tutorial...

    Let me know if you have any more questions :)

    P.S. I feel like they chose the bomberman icon as a joke. The reason why is because in order to have that flash card load on your console, they have to make it look like a legit game. They can pretty much use any game to do that, so I feel like they chose it intentionally. Though, if they didn't, that would be hilarious :rofl2:
