sup.

I have a problem with my Ez 3 in 1 (the newer model) and I require assistance!. well, when I try to play touhoumon "Link" (a hacked rom of pokemon with touhou characters) I get a black screen and a weird noise that repeats it self endlessly. I used gbaExploader 0.58 to write the rom to NOR and well... dunno wtf, every other game works just fine, so maybe the problem it's the rom ( the the game works flawlessly in VisualBoy) ... anyway, someone told me to use the app "Gba Tools 0.7" to patch the Sram... what I did and still doesn't work...

thanks in advance D:

Pokemon games as a rule require RTC patching, the exception to that is RED. The only other pokemon game without a working RTC patch is emerald.

Beyond knowing what the base version, such hacked versions have a downside that it breaks compatibility to run on alot of flashcarts.

In short, your stuck to playing that hacked version on VBA or the fake cart you got it on.

Whoever told you to SRAM patch it was not very smart, probably made it worse.

bump because I just noticed, that I can load roms into NOR up to 16MB without problems, but now I tried with 32mb roms, like "bleach advance, "Pokemon mistery dungeon red rescue team", and "Mother 3 (with english patch)"... and I get the white screen always.

I tried loading them using YSmenu, gbaldr, and no luck so far.

goddamn this is weird.

yes, after extensive testing I found I am unable to play gba roms over 16mb, I always get the white screen... and it's not a problem related to the save type.

I can write to NOR any rom less than 16mb and it will work flawlessly.

anyway, can someone help me so I can stop with my useless monologue?

please!

If you don't want to use it, thats too bad for you.

and I get the same problem; I can load games to NOR up to 16MB and play without problems of any kind.

    I haven't been gaming for such a long time. Been mostly busy with sleep, hardware tinkering and checking GBAtemp frequently.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Hope you've had a good morning.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    It's going alright thanks :) I know what you mean with gaming time. It's precious where I can get it these days.

    I think that's why I focus on just enjoying single player experiences that aren't too competitive
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    How are you doing?
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    There's also this thing where I'm hyperfocused at night and cannot get to sleep.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, I'm doing alright, thanks.

    That must be rough. Productive I'm sure but hard to balance with daily life

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Indeed. I've been working on getting this Infecutus chip to work on my PS2. But after soldering, I realised that a plastic piece was missing from the power ribbon cable to the power and eject buttons.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Now I could go with soldering the contacts from the cable to the connector on the mobo, but doesn't sound like a good permanent solution.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Man, that's beyond my brain :rofl: I'm no good with hardware for now. I'd like to get into hardmods in future though
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Maybe start practice soldering. Get a cheap-ass soldering iron and follow some good YouTube tutorials.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Least my experience has gotten better than over a decade ago. My iron would constantly bump into components and break them.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Sounds good. I actually did soldering but like 16 years ago for school so uuuuh probably rusty haha
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Same here. I did soldering at school from a teacher who I honestly liked since he had plenty of good electronics experience.

    @Maximumbeans, I had a friend who had a glass chess set for their birthday.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    It was like all clear and fancy. Tbf I'm not too experienced with chess, but would like to learn someday.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    That sounds really cool
