    Chrono Trigger (U) has multiple crash bugs on firmware version 1.17a07. For instance, traveling to the End of Time with the Epoch crashes the game. The same thing happens during the aftermath of the side mission where you defeat the monster Melphyx in the desert. There is a portal you enter as Lucca, but when you press A next to it, the game crashes. On 1.17a01 these problems do not occur. As it stands now, I have to switch between firmwares to play either Chrono Trigger or Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and it's a bitch to do that every single time.

    I'm using an unmodified (but trimmed) Chrono Trigger USA rom on an NDS Lite and a regular genuine DSTT. I haven't tested any of the other unofficial firmware versions.

    Try renaming the firmware 1.17a01.dat(?) to 1.17a01.nds., then put 1.17a07 on the card. The card should boot 1.17a07 as the firmware, and you should have a TTMENU icon in your games list. Selecting that TTMENU will load you into 1.17a01.

    That's much more handy, thank you very much for the tip. I do still hope this incompatibility will be fixed in the next version.

    There is a new extinfo.dat file (use with V1.17a07). I don't know what is fixed but you could try.

    Also works w/o this fix when you disable DMA (in the menu that appears to the very right when you highlight the game in TTMENU).
