    Anywhere before it crashes, with some instructions on how to reproduce it.

    Uploading a save now - though it's not ideal due to the fact you need to play through the quite long mission to get to the crashing point. Started from mission 1 earlier and just got to the bit where it breaks.

    http://www.mediafire.com/?1zxnjxmlir2

    Mission 19 crash - there is one I believe at mission 25 too, but have no means to obtain a save

    1. Click 3C, Directory, scroll to bottom and select North Hudson Park
    2. Follow green arrow until you get to the area you need to go to
    3. After that open 3C, Directory, and select 'The Crowbar' as the location to visit.
    4. Once at The Crowbar, find the man (straight ahead), then take the picture of him

    5. Once you have recorded his conversation, the game blacks out.

    As far as I am aware there are no shortcuts for this process, though would love to be proved wrong.

    Thank you, I'm looking into it now, Its definitely nothing like the other checks and so far i've been unable to workout why its freezing.

    Hi all, first post here (though i have been reading these fora for months). [​IMG]

    Anyway i'd like to add my C.O.P. save file too. The first save game is on mission 18, where at both of the 2 selectable main misions, the game freezes. To be more precise:
    1. In the mission where you have to meet the informant and he tells you to go at the club.While there, you have to find a fat man with a red tie (he's at the far end of the club). When you do, you first have to take a photo of him and then to record him with your 3C. THAT'S where the black screen rears its ugly head.
    2. In the mission where you must meet the racer under the bridge. When you find him and after a bit of talking, he asks you to select one of 3 possible routes with your 3C's GPS, and again thats where the second black screens instance appears.

    I managed to pass these missions on NO$GBA but i got stuck on mission 25, where the second save game is:
    3. You have to bail out your friend and you agree to drive a modded bus carrying 2 cars inside it, through the city. Again, you are asked to choose 1 of 3 routes through the city with your 3C's GPS, so black screens again... I tried to get past this mission too in NO$GBA but seeing as the time limit is strict and the objective is tough, i couldn't (emulator framerate, glitches, speed and all) finish it, only got at 7/9 flags.

    To conclude, the black screens occur every time you are asked to do those 2 actions (record and choose one of 3 routes).
    Oh btw, my setup is M3 Sakura 1.43, 16gb sandisk mobile ultra and the game is the hex edited, patched one.

    Here's the .sav:

    P.S.I would like to say a big thank you to Normmatt and to every other GBAtemp member for the help and info i have read during my visits here [​IMG]

    Thank you for the save, I've worked out the cause of the mission 18 freeze/crash. More information on where the bridge is so i can test that one out would be helpful.

    If you manage to fix it will the fix only be for the acekard series or will you also make a simple patch for all carts(XDELTA)

    Please skip to the bolded part if you already know the game:

    First of all, after starting the game choose the 3C an go to Directory-->Greenpoint Highway (sixth from the top), and double tap.
    As the GPS shows, it's on the far right island (you start off in the central island). The best way to get there is by the south bridge (as you see the map, there are 3 lines connecting the middle and the far right island. The one in the middle is a tunnel,and the other 2 are bridges, so you need to travel via the bottom line, i.e. the south bridge).

    Anyway, after travelling on the south bridge, you 'll come across 2 bypasses. Choose the right one and after you descent, turn left, and you' ll see the monter truck nearby. That's where the objective is.

    Yep, i dled the (u) rom, placed the *cracked* one in my card, and using my (e) save (which i renamed to u in order to have the same filename with the .nds file), i got past missions 19 & 25 on my m3 sakura


    For those who want it, here's the new save, past those black screen instances mentioned above:
    http://www.zshare.net/download/68396102d6725237/


    Also, a comparison could be made by the hackers between the between the (u) and the (e) versions, in order to see the differences in AP, and use this knowledge to be AP proof in future releases too. Once again it's thanks to dedicated people that this was overcome, so thank Suxxors, Normmatt and everyone else.
    Cheers! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Where are the Fix for the game? (Whatever U or E)
    I just could get the first Fix for the E, but it doesn't changed almost anything.
    I want to play the game.
    Can anyone instruct me?

    Get the (U) cracked version by SUXXORS. There ARE still some carts that won't play it, but that version is your best chance for it to work.

    I have a R4 Ultra SDHC which I believe is an Acekard clone. I am running firmware 1.53 and also have AKAIO 1.4.1 as well (had to get that in order to run Korg DS, but ALL my other games work just using the 1.53 firmware).

    The US versions, including the SUXXORS cracked one doesn't work for me at all. It doesn't even start up whereas the uncracked US version crashes at the same place the original Europe version did (just after pressing start).

    I have been able to use the cracked Europe version but that apparently will still crash at mission 19 and then a bunch of times later in the game (I haven't reached that far but have gathered that by readind what others have posted).

    Is anyone still actively looking at cracking this game so it could work on my card?

    Cheers.

    Anyone has the save for Xenophobia patched version until the Mission 18?

    The Xenophobia patched can pass through all the AP right?
