    It's good to see this released even though I've been playing the US version. =)

    Anyone tried if the US game save works with the PAL version?
    If so, i'm thinking of switching over, so that i get the measurements in meters instead of feet (Stunt jumps, GPS distance and such)

    I used the patch of the USA version on the EUR version. But this didn't work. (Yes, i don't know what's behind the patch, so ive tried that)

    So the EUR version needs an another patch? Or is there a easier way to fix this EUR version?

    its not a "PAL" version being that PAL is resolution 720 x 486 (or was it 720 x 576...) and 25fps & 625 lines...

    NDS doesn't use the same video modes as TV.

    Also, I'm assuming this has the same problem as the USA version?

    So will this need a different code or patch? Or does it still work with the carts that worked before?

    Does not work on CycloDS Evolution with firmware v1.54 (black screens after creating first save)
    Does also NOT work on the G6DS Real (The US version did) (black screens after creating first save)

    It DOES work! And the saves are compatible!

    It's just not fixed in the firmwares. You have to use a cheat code (as before with the US Version, before all firmwares were updated). I just found it out myself while playing around with R4CCE. Code is the same, only other game id!

    Game ID: YGXP 40BF4673
    Code: 020FCB3C 22329203


    Tested with CycloDS 1.54! No black screen! And no need for a new Arm9 patch.

    And if you rename the savegame from the US version to the Europe version, it loads too! So you don't have to start all over.

    Let me rephrase

    Clean rom does not work on those [​IMG]

    But as you found out, the AR codes does fix it [​IMG]

    Why do you want to patch the EUR version when it is the exact same as the US version? Just play the already patched US release. It has all languages included as well.

    I call it stupid, since the (U) version has all the languages in them. Why would you even wait if that's the case. I get it when people wait for a translated versions in their native language, but that isn't the case here. If you are that patriotic just rename the (U) to (E) and you should be fine. I still don't get it...
