    The game in question is Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. I have downloaded the ROM from various sites but no matter what, the game freezes right before the very first battle. It freezes when the battle starts, the star rises from the middle of the screen and stops at Mario's face, while a slightly annoying sound is heard. Is it just the cart?

    EDIT: Never mind now, it works after downloading the 1.5 Firmware.

    You really should have tried the newer firmware first before posting a thread.

    With 1.5 firmware it gets to the save screen but can't do anything after that, it doesn't looked locked up. This is on a DSL / EDGE / Transcend 4GB Class 6.

    I seen something about a code, but does this work or do we need a patch, Thanks!

    As already answerd in all the other "Mario & Luigi not working" threads use the cheat code the patch doesn´t work with EDGE/Cyclo (they are basically the same). Anyway the cheat code seems still not complete or so there are still problems.

    I still get the white screen using the cheat codes on my 1.5 Edge with 2GB in a DSL. I have tried it a few times erasing the old saves. I'll wait for a proper fix, or I may just buy a new card.

    Crap. I have been proven wrong.

    For the past few days, I've been telling everyone that it seems to be working for me using ONLY the AR code, and I was indeed too quick to assume.

    Just today for the hell of it, I decided to see if I would have any problems after saving, and I sure did. I get those black screens as well after clicking, "Save and Continue". But I have no problem with clicking, "Save and Quit". Although, when I do the quit option, the AR code gets disabled. So you would have to boot to the EDGE's menu and re-enable the cheat.

    So for those who have read my posts in the other thread regarding the freezing, I'm sorry. I should of looked into it better. It's not working for me either.

    With the AR code in the forums I'm able to save fine. But right after I enter Bowser's stomach, and I go to move to the right screen, the game freezes up on me. Anyone else have this problem?

    You didn't enter the code properly then, I had the same issue when I didn't put in the code.

    are we boned then as edge users?

    ive not tried to play the game yet but it seems that way.

    *so after playing around with it a bit, seems we can play it with the AR codes it just crashes when you save, BUT it is actually saved anyway.

    I can live with that.

    I have it playable on EDGE card.

    FW 1.50
    clean ROM
    used r4cce to apply the AR codes and called it 'Launch Game'
    enabled cheats in settings
    then click yes to cheat when I pick the game
    'Launch Game' appears - and I hit start button

    The only problem is that when you use saveblocks in-game, I get a blackscreen immediately after (music still plays) and I have to restart.
    This happens about 50/50, sometimes it just saves and continues [​IMG]!
    but
    its no big problem as even when it blackscreens it also saves! so you restart to where you left off
