    Oddly, WALL-E seemed to work with the previous version but wouldn't save, but it doesn't work at all (two black screens after the title screen) with the newer version.

    Hmmm...I noticed that the save file had a ".NDS.sav" extenstion. I lowercased it, but then it created a new one with the ".NDS.sav" extension (the old one is still there) and again gave me two black screens. How odd.

    ETA: I looked at the files in DSOrganize, and it appears the .nds file is named "WALL-E.NDS" even though on Windows it appears as "WALL-E.nds" (I'm sure this has something to do with FAT16). I renamed it in DSOrganize, and it seems to be using the correct save file now. However, I still get the two black screens.

    I don't understand. As soon as I start a new game it freezes. All my other games seem to work just fine, and I was able to play WALL-E with the previous version of Bliss (but it wouldn't save) so its not likely to be a corrupt ROM or trimming problem.

    Would you mind finishing to the first save point then put the save file somewhere that I can get it?

    At least I know it's not just me!

    New information: http://www.acekard.com/bbs/viewthread.php?...3D1&page=12

    It appears that it's a problem with a15 of the official firmware (don't know if it affects the upcoming a16 or the beta). My guess is that Bliss is using the a15 loader.

    K10a supposedly fixes the Wall-E black screen issue:
    According to the changelog Fast posted, K10 uses the "official a16-modified" rom loader.

    I can confirm that it's now playable again, but it doesn't save.
