    I got an r4 purely to play my Japanese Pokemon games on the go, but unfortunately, a real pain is, unlike Desmume, which fixes the freezing, R4 Gold Pro Revolution 3ds does not. I tried the anti freeze AR code but that fixed nothing, and there seem to be no patches for the Japanese HeartGold just to fix the freezing. I do not want the translation patch, I just want to stop the freezing. :c

    I am a student learning Japanese and wanted a way of practicing my Japanese reading/comprehension skills. That, and I wanted to see the different dialects used that could not be brought over to English (like Whitney and Bill's Osaka dialect.)

    Is the Wood any different from the firmware I downloaded when I got the cart in the mail? It told me to get at: http://www.r4isdhc.com/2014-r4isdhc-gold-pro

    I dont know.I dont have an r4 to check it out. The wood firmware should work on it and was better updated and has more compatibility.

    When does the game freeze? Randomly? I remember playing through some of the pokemon games in japanese on my r4 and they wouldnt freeze.

    It freezes on the 2nd time entering/leaving a building. Includes stairs. Anything the screen could go blacl or white, basically.

    In liliths post, under "DAT2 FOLDER" the wood firmware should work for yours.

    Is there supposed to be something named wood in that folder? Or just regular .dat files, an .ini, and an engi.ne2 file?

    Have you tried DS-Scene ROM Tool? If memory serves, it has AP Patches for most games.

    It appears the RetroGameFan update did the trick!
    I'm so happy!
    Thank you so much :D

    No, those files are the firmware. Delete the one you got from the r4i gold website and use those.

    Nvm you got it to work.
