    I don't know who else has tried to run this game on the DS-X if anyone even still uses their DS-X but it seems to run fine without any patching whatsoever. I'm a little freaked out. No "Thanks for playing" screen yet, (after a couple of hours of playing) and saves work fine...

    Strange.

    Yup. This game works properly on DS Xtreme and not on R4.
    Pure luck? Weird turn of events? End of the world? your pick.

    That's the power of using clean roms. DS-X FTW!!!

    Remember folks, DS-X is only to be used for HOMEBREW according to Team DS-X. Although this is beyond bizarre, I must admit. I wasn't surprised that Cyclo rose up to the challenge in this case, but the fallen DS-X comes back to life? WTF

    They only started saying that when the roms were no longer working. Before, they just didn't say anything, like you would expect.

    I think that Nintendo tried to block the big guys (R4,M3 and so...) and overlooked ds-x, I mean ds-x websites are no longer on the web as we speak, who cares about them?

    You could use a different cart(Cyclo/R4) and then convert your savegame back to your Ds-x [​IMG]

    Yeah, you need a new cart, nothing anyone can do here to help. Bad programming=bad firmware. They took your money and ran...

    Lol, I was obsessed with this item for about 3 days. Then I moved on to wanting a slot 1 with external memory because I felt it was kinda tricky. Its odd to think about it now, but I was so taken by the LED (Theres a video of them on youtube that has the lights playing to a song.) that I contemplated selling of my GBA's to buy it. Good thing the effect wore off [​IMG]
