    Gambia, The
    N-Card & Clones (Neo MK5, D-Linker) FAQ

    So now I want to collect all the Questions wich are asked over and over again about the N-Card...
    I hope my english is understandable... Just say it if you find a mistake (there will be billions of mistakes [​IMG] )
    If you know some questions which aren't answered... just post them, i will edit my post.

    Read first::
    Sometimes there can be errors which are fixed by simply cleaning the contacts of the Slot-1 ( or even 2) card.
    So, if you have a problem which seems to be unfixable, try to clean the contacts.

    I don't think this belongs to any question, but paul1991 posted a package for the N-Card wich contains a collection of soft for the N-Card.
    Since the most users aren't reading the whole 2 pages, here the link ( paul1991 said that he would create a therad but I think it should be added here too. [​IMG] )

    Good idea,

    You should add, the savetype for zelda is 'flash 4mb'.

    You have the skin names in reverse, desktop.bmp is the touch screen. c_file, the upper screen.

    the rgb values are additive, like light. 31,31,31 = white

    Yup that's what I mean. If it's not supported by the firmware then I guess it should work if I obtain a passkey rom dump. It should really be supported by the firmware though.

    Um thanks for a link containing a passme romdump, but I'm pretty sure that's illigal unless it's homebrew (which I doubt it is, seeing as the filesize is exactly 128kb).

    Back on topic: is there a way to have the n-card auto-skip the warning screen? r4 does it, so n-card should be able to do this as well. I think it had something to do with header info.

    It is homebrew.
    I can guarentee that. It is passme created by the DSGBA team. The icon is an N-Card logo. The logo is easy to change on ROMS, but whatever.
    Its not just a passme dump.
    What did you think of the other files?
