    Hello, in my continuing quest to have all of my topics locked, I felt that I had to ask this question -
    On the GBATemp/FileTrip site, there are several uploaded files that claim to be working patches. I un-rar'd them, and they contain executables. Seeing as how these come with Chinese or French(?) instructions, I am very hesitant to run these files to test them. One of them contains a readme, where it states that the "patch" was made by Rudolph. I'm not so sure. Even if these files don't work, I feel obligated to post a thread, because they seem to possibly be malicious. Here are the links:

    Don't get your hopes up. I guarantee you 150%, they aren't worth your time.

    When there is a real working patch, you'll know.

    First one was uploaded in September. It's for the J version.
    Second was was uploaded on the 14th of this month. If it was working we would know about it.

    Rudolph's patch was the AP patch for the Japanese version. Not much use now, but a worthwhile bit for the wandering unknowing people.

    Alright, I was just bringing that to everybody's attention, because those files looked suspicious. You can close this, if you need to.

    Awww man.....the title KINDA got my hopes up but i knew it probably wouldn't be true that there was a new patch cause if there was there would have been like a 100 replies (maybe more) within 10 minutes XD

    When files are a few kb weight it's useful to use virustotal.com, its an online tool that conatins ~32 antivirus for checking files [​IMG]

    I don't get it. If they could make a patch for the japanese version, why not the usa version?

    Because the AP they use is different and more complex in the USA version.
