    I bought an EZ Flash IV some time ago and it arrived yesterday. I put some games on it and tested some. Some of them have problems. I tried changing the save type in the EZ Manager, but nothing works.

    The Games I have problems with are:

    Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy Of Goku (famous hardware error)

    I heard the second one has the same ap, so I didnt test it. Another game I have problems with is

    Pokemon Emerald (Clock Problem and save loss. Everytime I restart the rom, my save is gone)

    Pokemon Leafgreen/Firered (Save deletes itself. Everytime I restart the rom, my save is gone)

    I have german versions of the roms. I only find patches for english roms. If theres anyone out there who knows what I have to change or what patches I have to use, I would be very grateful.

    DBZ used an extra chip for protection. You will have to find the hacked version of the game to play. The person that made the hack never released it as a IPS file but as a patched rom. So nobody here can give you the link to a rom.

    As for your pokemon versions you are asking for, you can check here:
    http://bubbz.pocketheaven.com/?system=gba&section=patch

    As for Pokemon Emerald, there is no RTC patch for ANY language version. Pokemon emerald came VERY late in the life cycle of GBA, so there might not be any save patches for it either.

    Some people get a 1M subcircuit error message if they set the save size too low or patch with a patcher not designed to handle pokemon save sizes larger than 64k.

    You might have to consider a hardware solution to your pokemon problem. The only current slot2 device that can handle pkemon games without RTC patching of any kind is the M3 GEP. If your slot1 is not a M3, you will need to use gba exploader to be able to use the M3 GEP.

    Have you tried the onboard patch options of GBATA (have a look at the sram stuff and the RTC stuff if you want)? http://www.no-intro.org/tools.htm

    edit: I did not know there was a straight up hacked version of DBZ 2, if I remember I will grab a copy and see about making a patch.

    yes i did. gbata recognises none of them because it was released before all these games.

    if you have msn or icq, i can send you the prepatched dbz games.

    dit: problem solved [​IMG] i just had to change one little option in the ez flash manager [​IMG] everything works now except for the rtc in emerald, but theres no patch for it as i read in the internet [​IMG]

    Pretty sure it was "Select 1024kb SRAM for save type"
