    Hello,

    I noticed Harvest Moon The Lost Valley wasn't working on Gateway on firmware 2.6 so I waited. Gateway just released their beta 3.0.1 firmware and I've updated my card and the 3DS but I still can not launch the game. It get stucks on the first screen right after pressing A to launch the game (with the 3DS logo on it).

    I looked at Gateway's release notes but they don't mention fixing any games or anything. If they are not aware that Harvest Moon The Lost Valley does not launch, is there a way to contact them to let them know so they can fix it in the next firmware update? Or has anybody figured out how to get it to run?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried any other ROM's for this game, it could be a bad dump? Do all of the games on your Gateway work, or is it just this one game?

    Well, it's been really hard finding roms for this game. I don't remember where I got it from, but on a site I know I didn't get it from, people are saying the game gets stuck at the same place. All these sites might be sharing the same rom, I don't know. But yeah, the only roms of it I have come across don't seem to work.

    Getting stuck on the 3ds logo, sounds like it uses the 7.X keys and emunand has not been set up.

    Mm. BrokenHearted, what firmware is your emuNAND on?

    No, I have not set emunand up. Seems a bit too complicated for me. There are not that many games that interest me. The last game before Harvest Moon The Lost Valley I tried was the european version of Fantasy Life, and that game played fine after updating Gateway's firmware. If I have to set up emunand and all that, I'd rather not bother.

    I guess that's the reason? Thanks!

    It's really not that complicated...there are plenty of step-by-step guides here on GBATemp. Just take it one step at a time and you'll have access to everything.

    emunand is a protection, running with naked sysnand is dangerous

    Yeah, ok. If I feel up for it, I'll check out some guides and see if I can do it. Thanks for the replies!

    Hi, same situation for me. Tried playing harvest moon but it gets stuck on the 3ds title screen. Would just like to ask if you tried setting-up the emunand and did it fix the problem? Thanks.

    Oh, ok. Thanks. So it really needs an updated EmuNand? Tried updating EmuNand to 9.6 earlier but then Gateway would not boot properly. Had to reinstall the blue card and reformat the SD card.
