    No matter what patch I use or version of the Soul Silver ROM I use it still freezes after a certain amount of events on my R4 card. I'm going to buy a new card, which is the cheapest option for one that will function with soul silver?

    Soul Silver and Heart Gold works on all flashcarts currently available on the market, including your R4. You're probably using an outdated kernel or a bad patch - can you give us more information about your current setup?

    I'm using the most recent Wood firmware, it runs soul silver fine but when exiting/entering building it sometimes turns the screen black.

    Are you using a clean ROM or a patched one? Is it a proper release or a nuked one? Did it come with an NFO? What kind of an SD/SDHC are you using? What class?

    I've tried a clean ROM at first, it didnt work which is what caused me search for a solution. Currently running a patched one(Rudolph?). No NFO, I beleive it is a proper release. 2GB SD card,

    Ah, yes - cards under 4GB don't have Class classification (SD). Can you tell us if it's the U or E release as well? They have separate patches.

    What you're interested in getting is "4788 - Pokemon SoulSilver (U) (Xenophobia)" (xpa-pssu.rar) and the corresponding patch.

    http://www.mediafire.com/?flantf6dt4afldc

    I'll post a link to the patch, I don't think the site contains any copyrighted material. That's the official patcher and it *has* to work, provided that you have the proper release.

    There we go, link replaced. Now it's nice and dandy. Good spot, Snail - you're not as slow as your avatar and nick suggest. :P

    As a person that never had any problems with SoulSilver while using the patch I posted, I can't really help you much beyond the "use the patch, if necessary, look through Cheats and maybe you'll find something there". If you're looking for a card to replace your R4, Acekard 2i's are affordable and DSTwo's are the most updated carts... but seeing that you're running the latest Wood firmware, you shouldn't have those issues in the first place. Did you try different SD's? Different ROM's (I mean sources, the release should still be Xenophobia's)?

    ...I would not recommend a DSTT, not with all the painful tasks you have to endure to make ROM's running on it properly.

    I recommend two carts - the AK2i and the DSTwo. Perhaps also the R4iGold (from www.r4ids.cn), but your card is compatible with WOOD already, so that wouldn't be a big upgrade.

    Have you considered using a legacy WOOD version? Perhaps the latest revisions "screwed something up" and an older one would fix your issue? I believe that the version used at the time was 1.29b, at least according to Rydian's review of the R4iGold.cn.

    The old revision of Wood worked...odd.

    I'm glad to help out. Sometimes these things happen - newer versions may override certain patches in an attempt to boot games in Clean Mode. Y'know how fixing one thing breaks another? ;)

    Hi, Foxi4, the website of r4i gold should be www.r4ids.cn which is officially supported by WOOD R4.

    True, true. I'll correct that to avoid confusion.

    If he's actually using a recent version of Wood then he should be using an unpatched ROM.

    I figured as much, hence my "fixes" comment.
