    So I want to make a simple copy-paste that can be given to people who have issues running new games on their carts.

    This is what I have, feel free to add suggestions or corrections.

    What about getting/verifying a clean dump and/or reformatting your card?

    Those are patches. They may not have a patcher program and you may need to do the hex edits yourself, but it's usually only a day until somebody turns the hex edits into a simple patch anyways.

    If you can't run any decent firmware and there's no patches for the games you want to play, your cart's a piece of [​IMG] ......... [​IMG] How very true

    Just one other possible thing for 1)

    'Some cart firmwares have an option to Bypass AP (AntiPiracy) - most notably AKAIO and DSTwo - which are usually switched off by default
    Check the firmware to see if there is such an option as this or possibly 'Patch/Clean mode' & change the state of it to see if the game will run'

    How about this?

    1) Buy game
    2) Put game in system
    3) Switch system on
    4) ?????
