    Hi there, so i was playing and enjoying it till i encountered some problems later in the game.

    First problem after chapter 6 or so i can't select the fire monsters tab anymore or i'll freeze the game, not a big problem can still continue playing so didnt pay much attention to it.

    Second problem is chapter 8-2 one of the mainstory stages get a blackscreen freeze immediatly after i press begin..
    so mine question is anyone have the same problem? or know a solution to it? i tried to use different versions of r4 1.11 and 1.12 still not working.

    any help or suggestion will be appreciated.

    Have you tried a different rom dump? I haven't heard of anyone having a problem like that before.

    Are you using any cheats? Somtimes they can affect games in that way.

    There should be no reason the save file wouldn't work.

    bugger, I'm getting black screens after the 'load complete' message when continuing.. I'm only near the start of the game but I am using the micronauts version.

    1.12

    but the Micro sd appears to be an 'EagleTec' as oppossed to a sandisk or kingston as see mentioned often.

    Just so you guys know I saw lag when trying to play using a downloaded version of FF12 during the CG videos. It skipped pretty badly when compared to an original cart (which I own). Then again this is on a 2GB sandisk microsd card but the same one plays Castlevania: POR without any lag. The release in question is the micronauts one.

    EDIT: I have my own dump which I have yet to test. My dump is validated per a CRC check on advanscene.com.

    Ive played the game all the way through the 10th Chapter, and have had no slowdown whatsoever during the cutscenes. The only slowdown I notice is during battles, when there is a lot of espers on the field. I am using 1.12

    Are you using a 1GB or a 2GB microSD card? Please note that I specified a 2GB card. The 1GB cards tend to be faster and the 2GB cards are known to create some lag in some games. It was just that I had gotten one that worked well for Castlevania POR that I thought it was fast enough then I hit this game and apparently it still doesn't work as fast as my older 1GB card.

    I should of added that the only real CG scene I have actually seen so far is the intro video (the one at the title) which doesn't even really count. That one skips pretty bad. I'm only 18% of the way through so I didn't know if there was any more yet. The cut scenes where the characters are talking and stuff isn't what I was referring to.

    EDIT: Err.. There are a few short ones at the begging of the game. The first one skips a bit on the online release but does not on my own dump. Weird. [​IMG] Same flashcart, Same microSD card, Same game, Same region, Different dumper.
