    I accidentally left the newest available checkbox unchecked so if a staff member could fix that, it would be great.

    I'm updating my CycloDS Evolution as I type. I haven't used it in a while. x.x

    Stealth mode is ONLY for those UBIsoft games (COP as well as, err.....I don't know the other couple with that protection), which is thought to use that Metaforic protection that was mentioned a few months back that had 100+ AP checks in them, not for fixing things like "save cannot be found" or anything else. So don't be too overly excited about Stealth mode. It's only a few specific games that it works with.

    Yeah I remember those games Rayder, you're probably right, as i remember trying the Stealth Mode previously on a game, but to no avail

    If it makes only 1 or 2 games playable that you couldn't play without using it, i guess it's gonna be worthwhile

    Glad to see it was released so soon. Definitely going to download and use this.
    I wish they'd make a permanent fix for the games that use 1024KB saves though, so games like Spirit Tracks and GTA would work right off the bat.

    Also, I've noticed that they updated their user's manual: http://www.cyclopsds.com/downloads/evo-manual-1.56.pdf

    Huh? They do.

    All versions of Spirit Tracks work now and create 1024kb saves automatically.

    Sorry, I meant a future-proof fix for that.

    Ah, well... that would be nice, but I don't know if that's possible unless they devise some sort of auto-detection of save sizes.

    Stealth Mode is for bypassing anti-piracy. The save issue has nothing to do with anti-piracy. (For example, Spirit Tracks had the save issue but the anti-piracy was separate, in the form of removing the train controls).

    Nope.

    Someone on their forum suggested they should make the default save size 1024kb, which is not such a bad idea, especially if more games are gonna use it.

    older gamesaves that don't support that save type may corrupt and won't load, you have to think about that.

    As mentioned previously, an auto detection program, or an option to change the save file size would of got over that

    Question: Exactly how does stealth mode work? Can I only use it on certain games?

    Hold Start while loading up a game. It should work on all games, but it's only useful for new releases with new anti-piracy in them.
    As a side-effect, it disables all enhanced features from the game, including cheats, RTS, and text-reader. The point is to use this when a new game is released so you can play it without waiting for a firmware update or patch, then when they update the firmware to bypass the game's anti-piracy, you can stop using Stealth Mode.

    Plus 1 Mb for each save will take a lot of Room in your MicroSD.
