    I found a different version of this game. It is named "Professor Layton and the Last Specter.nds".

    It runs just fine on my Acekard 2.

    There was no release info with it. Just the .nds file.

    That would be the XXXX release. Generally, XXXX is just assigned to non-scene dumps, but in the scene, is applied to dumps such as demo carts.

    Either i'm losing it or you've just said that
    a) Lamef*** was identical to the XXX release since it's just the XXX repacked
    b) The Header wasn't corrupt
    c) However, the Header actually was corrupt in the XXX release

    Do i need to fear the universe will implode now?

    That second quote was a response to the post of the guy that found the non-scene dump beforehand. GBAtemp has just been laggy as hell and took its time posting that message. I already said I was wrong about the header bit. :P

    And the Universe is at peace once again saved from paradox implosion! Shame the only "scene" release has a corrupt header though...

    As far as I am concerned, it doesn't matter if it is a "scene" release or not, as long as it works.

    I never understood why a "scene" release is considered to be better....

    Number released are what usually will be fixed on flashcart firmwares.

    Doesn't matter if you manually patch ROMs, of course... but there's a point to be made there. (AKAIO does patch some XXXX ROMs)

    For archival purposes people want something which is a 1:1 replica or as close as. The point isn't that one is better than the other, or even if it makes any difference, merely that it's a "damaged" release....like a record with a scratch on it that doesn't have any impact on the music thereon. A scene release should ultimately represent that ideal copy, not just some random repack.

    OK - I understand.

    So, not that I am a ROM dumper or anything like that, but how does a person or group get to be a recognized scene "player"?

    Gambia, The
    BTW its not fair that you and the Japanese can play "Layton's London Life", while it will be completely removed from the European Versions.

    "Too much translation work!", so to say.

    1.1)  Releases must be packed in RAR. SFV and NFO must be included.
    1.2)  Rars must be split to volumes of 5 MB (5,000,000 bytes)
    1.3)  Rars must be compressed with M1 (fastest) or better.
    1.4)  For the sake of better current and future flashcart compatibility and to
    keep ROM data consistent, full untouched, unmodified, unaltered dumps
    are prefered. However, if an altered/introed/cracked ROM is released on
    the scene before an untouched ROM then it will be allowed.
    1.5)  Cracks to make games work on specific hardware are allowed but should
    only be released as a PATCH and should not include the original ROM
    game data. Flashcarts used to test a crack or patch must be listed in
    the NFO, this includes the name of the flashcart, firmware name and the
    firmware version number.
    1.6)  Any redump of the altered ROM should be tagged as CLEAN or REDUMP and
    not as a PROPER nor should any crack be tagged as a PROPER of a valid
    clean release.
    1.7)  The ROM image of the NDS game must be .nds
    1.8)  Directory names must include: Game name, region, system name, group name
    1.9)  If a game does not include the English language, this must be specified
    in the dir name unless the region tag implies that region's native
    language is the only language in the game eg. game tagged JPN is Japanese
    only, hence does not need to state the language.
    1.10) If a game is rereleased with additional foreign languages, the directory
    name can be tagged MULTI, however the NFO must specify which additional
    languages are included.
    1.11) Acceptable characters for a dirname are:
    ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789.-_
    1.12) Recommended directory format:
    Game_Name___NDS-GRPNAME
    Game.Name...NDS-GRPNAME
    1.13) DSi and DSi related releases will be regarded as NDS releases and will
    adhere to this ruleset. DSi related releases must have the tag DSi
    in the directory name. Recommended directory format is:
    Game_Name___DSi_NDS-GRPNAME
    Game.Name...DSi.NDS-GRPNAME
    Game_Name___DSiWARE_NDS-GRPNAME
    Game.Name...DSiWARE.NDS-GRPNAME

    I think I'm the only one having this problem. I downloaded the patched version, and it's been working perfectly (no repeat on the first puzzle) but I've got up to the part where they're about to go into the hotel on Great Ely Street. Whenever I try to go in the game consistently freezes. I'm using an Acekard 2i. Has anyone else experienced this? :(

    I got it working now. I had to update to the latest firmware of AKAIO. I'd forgotten I wasn't on the latest one because of not using the DS for ages!

    Acekard 2i at newest Akaio here, doesn't get past the "Loading" font, not even booting the actual ROM.
    Any ideas? Tried the XXXX and the scene release.
