Hello. Anyone get any weird graphical glitches in games since the last update? Prior to 1.20, things were working fine completely. Now I get weird graphical glitches in games. In patch mode, I get the screen repeating, like the image was copied onto itself. This occurs both on the top and bottom screen randomly with multiple games (Fire Emblem, Mario and Luigi 3, CastleVania: DoS, etc). Here's a mock screenshot I made in GIMP. This is pretty close to what it looks like (since I'm pretty shit at describing it).

In clean mode, games work better, but I get a weird black line flash on both screens during random parts of various games (Just a thin, black line that flashes very quickly). These issues weren't present prior to the update. I'm wondering if maybe it has something to do with the 3DS contact issues, but I don't know. I got mine in September or so from zhuzhuchina and I haven't seen any issues since then. Hell, maybe I screwed up the update somehow (hard to do considering you just put it in the root and run the flash cart before updating the 3DS, but maybe the update was corrupted during download).

3DS - Latest firmware 6.0.something
DSTwo - 1.20
Games are all clean

EDIT: SD card is a Transcend 16 GB class 10

That was always a random occurence for me. Check the contacts on the sdcard and dstwo itself, eject and try again.

Just did right before you posted. Seems like it might be working? I'm going to have to play a bit longer for sure, though. Seems like I made this thread prematurely. For now, I'll consider it case closed, but if it continues, I'll post again.

Always seems like whenever something screws up with anything, I spend hours of googling to find nothing, only to ask about it and find my own solution in minutes. Weird. Thank you, regardless.

saw this thread and conferred with an expert on teh gbatemp irc.

<VatoLoco>: say, mr bassacegold, do you know what causes the screen glitch with dstwo on 3ds (not bagplug)? http://gbatemp.net/threads/graphic-gliches-in-scds2-1-20.349828/
<BassAceGold>: of course I do
<BassAceGold>: but it's a secret
<VatoLoco>: hehe=)
<BassAceGold>: it's because the default loaders and stuff don't clear all the vram when booting
<BassAceGold>: whether or not that's the only reason for the problem, clearing it does seem to fix it
<BassAceGold>: a work around would be to just use the DSTwo.nds that BAGOS/BAGPlug uses to load EOS

so replace your current DSTwo.nds with this and give it a go.

It is a problem of the 3DS not of the supercard, also happens with original DS games

Wait, so did the solution that VatoLoco suggested work, or did it not work? I'm experiencing the glitch as well, every now and again.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
