    yes good game but doesn't deserve all this hype and .. u know what , its pretty close to partner in time , almost all the same weapon items and stuff, but the guys who got it working just like to show off a little bit more than usually to annoy the ppl who weren't that lucky , that's all , its a good game , but far from awesome . in my opinion anyway

    Same weapons/items? You're aware the hammer has been in every Paper Mario, and Mario and Luigi right? Same with most of the items and specials. Same thing with most rpg/game franchises, such as Final Fantasy. Alot of the same weapons, items, monsters, spells, summons, themes, etc. Yet I don't see people complaining about that.

    I agree that most people would buy a new flashcart. But some will buy the game. I'm sure the R&D money that went into the copy protection will eventually be made back many times over as a result, especially if they include it (modified for each game I guess) in all their new releases

    either way, making it a pain in the ass for people to pirate is a good thing for business

    Haven't they seen studies that pirates also do some of the most buying?
    I tried out scribblenauts and didn't like it, but when i "tried" out Prof layton and loved it i bought it and its sequel.

    I haven't played any Mario Rpg's. I usually enjoy classic Jap RPGs (FF1-10, CT&CC).
    Im not spending $35 on a gamble since i was recently laid off.

    Basically i try anything thats worth a damn, and almost every game i beat, i end up buying
    Though most of the time i download it, play it for 5 min and forget about it.

    If you think about, pirating is my way to counter over advertising and paid reviews on games that actually suck.
    I have as DSTT and a DS Lite. I will probably just never see this game, oh well.

    Well, I first looked up this topic when the game came out because I only had a R4 clone (disgusting one at that) and the game obviously didn't work.

    I ended up buying an Acekard 2i and setting it up in my DS Lite with the latest version of AKAIO. The patched version of the game worked like a charm and I'm playing like crazy too. Good game.

    When I read here about this akaio OPEN SOURCE thingy I just couldn't pass it up and was it worth it. I only knew the broken firmware of the R4-III so AKAIO blew my mind. Can't recommend it enough (though the acekard itself is a little shitty in terms of hardware)

    Sorry if this is a really obvious question, but I only have a DS Lite and not a DSi. Will the Acekard 2 run this rom, or is it only the Acekard 2i?

    edit - the guy above me answers this, sorry ignore me

    So can anyone say whether this is closer to Superstar Saga or Partners In Time? rbasous said it was like PiT, but he gave a poor comparison. I want to know if it's more free-roam-ish like SS, or if it just feels like you're going through levels like PiT?

    It still flickers the top screen every start of a battle (with Mario & Luigi at least) and in some cinematics, doesn't it?

    When I start a battle and those stars appear there is one star that always appears on the top of the top screen very quickly, which makes me think the game is not completely fixed yet.

    Or is this common and not fixable?

    I think that may be part of the hack,but I know what you mean,the little screen tears during the cut scenes and just before a battle. I'm not sure about it,but didn't stop me from playing. Its a very minor glitch,but it would be cool if it could be fixed.

    I never played SS, so I wouldn't know, but IGN gave it a 9.5! Give it a shot! All games should have a level of progression, so I'm not sure what you mean by "just going through levels or free-roam-ish".

    I mean that PiT felt like i was just being taken to the next location, or "level", and in SS, there was a like a main world map that you would walk around in to get to the area you had to go to next, sometimes revisiting some places (not sure if you revisited places in PiT, though. I wasn't able to finish it).

    Edit: i found the term i was looking for. PiT felt a bit "linear"

    >.< The cheat works for the Japanese version the the DSTT, but not on the English/American version. I even took my Japanese save file and named it as the save file for the english ROM, the save shows up but I can't select it. [​IMG]

    I bought the Acekard 2 from that deals website and got it in like 4 or 5 days. I've been using R4 for the longest so not quite sure how to use action replay on the A2. Will the CHEATDAT. file in the downloads section contain any cheats for Bowsers inside story or does the PROPER 1.4 or 1.5 already have them? Like I said though, I'm new to using this card so if there is any flaming be easy aight [​IMG]

    EDIT: O.K. figured out how to use the cheats but my first question still stands. Is there a file in the download section that has cheats besides the one that gets to skip the piracy checks or whatever it does. like infinite health and all that nonsense

    srabelpawz,

    if you are using akaio 1.5, you don't need any bypass code or anti piracy code

    cheats.gbatemp.net to download the latest database [​IMG]
    remember after updating your cheat database you need to REBUILT
    by the way, the HP/SP never decrease code is broken

    Cool. Yeah the game has been working great so far. My son wants to use cheats so I will oblidge him. One last question. What do you mean I need to rebuild or should I just stop being lazy and google it or something? Thanks for your help by the way. at least it's a change from the "Does it work on the R4?" questions. For all you people that just got a boner seeing the word R4 to my knowledge the game still will NOT WORK ON THE R4 so please don't ask
