    Hey Guys, I recently migrated from an R4 because of the crazy cheap cost and supposedly perfect compatibility, however I am having more than a few problems getting my card setup. First off Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Worms 2: open warfare will not load. For UMK3, I get black screens after loading the rom. This happens both when I trim and when I do not. For Worms 2, it says cannot find the save file and forces me to reset, in some other instances I have gotten it to load but it never fully completes loading. I have a JPN 2gb kingston card so I doubt that can be the problem as other games on my card run fine.

    Anybody else having problems with these two roms?

    upgrade to latest loader, which may have fixed some of them (i think worms was)

    those games require the arm 7 fix, which must be applied manually. i'm sure there is a guide somewhere int the forums here.

    R4 doesn't have perfect compatibility lol.

    Yeah, make sure to fix them with the ARM7 Fix and upgrade to latest DSTT firmware.

    You can find loathsome's ARM7 Fix topic here

    Edit: Oops, meant DSTT instead of R4.

    ARM7 did allow the games to boot and play fine, however they take a while to boot. How are you guys getting these games to run without the arm7 fix? I am using a JPN 2gb kingston with the newest firmware and it takes forever to load these games =/

    Both Mortal Kombat and Worms 2 works perfectly fine on my DSTT. I have NEVER ever had to do any ARM7 fix with any games.

    Possibly your backups are already patched with an arm7 fix so the DSTT gets confused. Use a clean dump.

    i know this is thread is old, but now i'm having the same problem with UMK3. i wasn't having this problem before updating to kernel 1.08


    when i load the game it just goes to black

    EDIT: never mind. i just remembered i had to replace all my files because they were showing as duplicates, i might of had a patched file before.


    EDIT: nope, i tried arm7 it still doesn't work. i think i'm gonna downgrade to 1.07 again.
