Hey everyone, First up, I apologise in advance if this is in the wrong place and respectfully ask any moderator to throw this where it should be if I was wrong about placement. However since the issue is possibly relating to the emulator I'm running, I thought this may be the right place. I've been trying to find a way to achieve a working NES emulator on my 3DS. Eventually after more time spent than I'd admit, I settled on nesDS v1.3 (http://gbatemp.net/threads/nesds-v1-1a.325558), the newest updated emulator (and the only one which my 3DS doesn't have a fit over) [The linked page only mentiones 1.1 but looking at the recent posts yields the newest update]. But after setting up some ROMs (and finding to my joy that most of them worked fine), this curveball arrives: picture (Sorry that I have no skill AT ALL with a camera. Hopefully it's clear enough from the picture that the writing seems to have converted into...blocks? I'm not sure what to call it. For those who've not played the game, that's the first part of the first level.) I explored around a bit, since maybe it was just something the translator couldn't fix, but the entire thing up to the first tutorial seems the same kind of weird. I had to abandon my efforts at the first battle due to an inability to understand even the combat menus. Since I'm not one to go running for help when I could fix it myself, I tried everything I could think of to fix the issue. I patched several different clean copies of the ROM, before wondering if the issue was the ROM itself, which I found to be true (the unpatched version is just as malformed). As a final resort, I downloaded and tried to use a pre-applied ROM, only to face the same thing again. Does anybody know what in the blazes is going on? And if so, how to fix it (If it's fixable)? Chip in use: R4i-SHDC 3DS System: 3DSXL Game: Fire Emblem Gaiden (NES) I'd like to just reassert that this is the first time this has happened on any ROM of mine. Running any other ROM, even via the emulator, yields regular gameplay. I had a look around, but I couldn't find any precedent for this, so I'm hoping someone may know what's going on and why.
