    Here I was thinking my MicroSD cards were screwed up because it froze during skin changes. Nice.

    What games are those release numbers for? I'm at work and it's rough to check with such limited time.

    Still no new GUI. >_<

    For those who haven't or doesn't check the TC forum, from what I heard the 3 in 1+ support doesn't really work well. TC doesn't have a 3 in 1+ for testing so they simply put in the new code and that's it, hence why "experimental".

    I have new 3 in 1+ and loaded this new FW. GBA roms run natively from CycloDS Evo menu. Browser and Rumble still does not work. We are getting closer...

    It is said on the TC forum that you should not spread this firwmare, as it is experimental.

    By the way, it's a great news. Can't wait to have full support !

    I can confirm that the EZ-Flash 3in1 Plus support works rather well. Loads my games perfectly fine!

    What do you mean guys that EZ Flash 3in1 support works?
    I have GBA files on my MicroSD yet I can't see them when browsing through the list. I only see the NDS files.
    And yes, I have my EZ Flash plugged in the Slot 2.
    How exactly do I launch a GBA file from the Cyclo DS menu?

    It works for me. I'm not sure if it matters but I have a folder in the root called "gba". I have all the gba roms in that folder.

    I have confirmed that rumble does not work in eleven games with my CycloDS Evo with new beta firmware:

    Clubhouse Games
    Elite Beat Agents
    GRID
    Metroid Prime Hunters
    Metroid Prime Pinball
    Moon
    Picross DS
    Race Driver: Create and Race
    Space Invaders Extreme
    Star Fox Command
    Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise

    When any game starts (including ones that do not have rumble support) there is rumble for a fraction of a second.

    Forgive me for asking a stupid question, but after upgrading your firmware, did you turn rumble on? I don't know if they changed it, but IIRC, i had to reinstate rumble on my card after an older update.

    Just a thought [​IMG]

    Bother them? Oh, no, you can't do that, they're geniuses at work!
    Anyway, you should read my little my little rant on the first page of the the thread at CycloDS Boards.
    Here's pretty much what I get when I demand some better service:

    So... Yeah... Don't even bother posting in that terrible place.

    Check config.xml in your CycloDS folder. Make sure you see this.

    if that 1 is a 0, change it to 1.

    The Cyclo Team never ceases to amaze me. The few games I've tried, they all work perfectly. Even Super Mario Advance 4: SMB3, one of the "tricky" ones. Cyclo Team, I bow to you.

    Now bring that new GUI already! ¬¬

    Never mind, I figured that one out. I,ve just copied SAV files from GBA_SAVE directory to the directory where GBA roms are located. Now when I run a GBA game from Cyclo DS it automatically loads the respective SAV file.

    my YSMenu gba saves didn't work either when i tried using them with CycloDS. The only solution i had was to load it to POR with gbaexploder, then boot from CycloDS menu. The save should be recognized because it was already in the POR. after that just restart your DS and CycloDS will backup the save from POR in it's own format.

    if anyone else has a better/easier way please let us know. not sure why CycloDS used a gba save format that's different than everybody elses. kind of lame in my opinion.

    You're probably correct, because rumble works for me in Moon and Space Invaders Extreme, but I didnt have to enable rumble again in the settings after I updated.
