I hear this brought up often in Vitamin chats. But I haven't heard anyone explain what they are or how to apply them.

So long story short (someone correct me if I'm wrong) in the game root directory is a folder labeled sce_sys. In this folder is a folder labeled modules, and in this folder are various files that make the game run.

Certain games when dumped either are missing required module files or they become corrupt resulting in a certain error when launching. Some people have discovered that they can replace the modules from one game into a non working dump to make it run. The success rate for this fix seems to be between 40 and 50 percent.

This. I think vitamin has some redundancy errors when ripping games possibly to certain sized memory cards. I think once those are ironed out, these problems will disappear. Just make sure you install verified rips!

Thanks guys. Someone posted a rar file with sc modules, do I upload that via filezilla and place it in a particular place in the shell?

Don't put the rar anywhere. You need to extract it and place the extracted files into the modules folder. I wouldn't bother though since flow is releasing a new version soon that fixes these problems

    Saying it like that sounds like you want others to do it than doing the research yourself.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I've already posted a link to the Nintendo DS section so that you can post something regarding your DS flashcart. Just make sure all of your posts are in English as this is against the rules.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no yo no estoy diciendo eso solo necesito una información que necesito calmado

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    You know, finding information about DS flashcarts isn't that hard. They can be found pretty much everywhere and a lot of them can be still bought, however, these are clones from previous generations.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    My apologies if I'm boring you. But if you'd like help with your DS flashcart, then I highly suggest making a thread to get a quick reply. Nobody is going to help in the chat section.
