    I can't get Broken Sword to run. Just goes to a black screen after showing the GBA bios screen.

    I'm using an EZ 3 in 1 and a DS Linker (N-Card clone), running 3in1 expansion pack tool. I've tried re-downloading the rom, and have tried both US and European versions. I've tried in both NOR and PSRAM modes.

    Mario Party won't start either. I get a screen saying "Saving...."

    Anyone know what I can do?

    Did you patch the rom with GBATA or EZ4Client? (if one try the other)

    Don't use the EZ4 Client except for games that use 1024Kbit Flash saves. Use GBATA for everything else. Games that use EEPROM and Flash save types need to be patched. Games that use SRAM save types do not.

    The EZ4 Client causes lost saves when used with the 3in1 Expansion Pack Tool in PSRAM mode.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Didn't think I would have to patch since everything else was working fine with clean roms. I'll try patching with GBATA.

    Oh yeah, I get a corrupted save message when I play Metroid Zero Mission. I figured out what's causing it though: Started the game in PSRAM, saved and tried to run it in NOR. If I run it in PSRAM mode it's fine.

    Edit: All working now! Thanks!

    ....But Broken Sword is kind of disappointing. Wish it was on DS.
