I just got my g6 today. I haven't played many games but I noticed some weird distortion or fuzz in the audio on the main menu for Meteos (US). I didn't start the game but I heard it during the opening menu. I have the real game so I could tell that this wasn't normal. I was using the settings: soft reset, dofat, and trim. Can someone try the game and see if they notice the same effect?
Well I played some of the game, and it was fine. I think even the audio was fine. But whenever I go back to the main menu there is some distortion and static fuzz going on behind the music. It's not supposed to be there. The only thing I did differently with this game was copy a save file from the legit meteos card onto the g6 for use with the rom. I could try starting up a fresh game and see if it makes a difference.
I rewrote Meteos to the cart with no save file and it sounded ok at first but as I cycled through the menus that rumbling fuzz started again. It only comes from the right speaker, and seems to occur only in the menus.
I have never played multiple player except for a couple 2 player games. I have noticed a little slowdown in single player on certain worlds when things get really busy, so I wouldn't be surprised.
Last night I tried Ultimate Spider-Man with the usual Software Reset/Dofat/Trim and it froze up like everyone says. If you hit Start enough times during the opening you can skip through the intro and get to the game, where it was fine. I'll try using safe mode on it today and see if that helps.
I heard the only game incompatible currently is Spiderman.
That's correct..and it's not so much incompatible as it suffers the same issue other flashcarts do - you need to hit start during the intro or else the game will freeze. Once you've pressed start, the game works fine.
I have not experienced this, and I also have the original cart to compare against. I don't trim anything I put on the cart though, and only use soft reset the odd time.
Bottom line: The only rom with an issue is Ultimate Spider-Man, and that's playable after pressing start during the intro. Everything else so far (barring anything new that comes out that requires updated patching software) works fine.
though what the poster at http://harmful.cat-v.org/software/java said is true about Java, it isn't so much about C++, C# while preferring C over it. I doubt he'd write a network stack in linux, port a SQL server in C and a mail client if it was a senior C/C++ paid job. You don't even need to care about pointers in C++ if you don't use them and instead use the OOP classes, such as an object reference, which is safer because it guarantees object heritage (Inheritance) which eliminates the need of a garbage collector. Typical use case of this is to use push/pop operators over a vector array, where you don't even need malloc. (it's used internally, yes, but by going the inheritance way you let the C++ to handle it for you)
