    I was just wondering you guys, I wanted to come across some of my old save files is some of my old pokemon games such as heart gold and pokemon white, but the games didnt work, which was odd because i though all ds games should be compatible with the blue gateway card. I heard that you might need to patch roms, but I have no idea how to do this. could some one explain how to patch roms, or if I could use another loader or something like ys menu or another wood firmware or if anything else at all is possible.

    Thank you

    Did you have different regions for these games last time you played them? And what did you use to play them before?

    I have the same regions (usa.) As for what I played them on before, an r4 sdhc colne cart.
    Out of curiosity, are they supposed to work fine? Could it be that they are bad roms or something?

    Just download the AOS for the Ace3DS+ and copy it over the gateway files (you need the original _DSMENU.DAT). It will solve at least 90% of your compatibility issues.

    This should really be written into the wiki pages :D

    It could also be that it's the fault of your microSD card. When I tried Pokemon Black 2 it didn't work (Error accessing savedata or something like that). I tried it with another card and it works now :)

    I just posted that I got everything working after I installed the wood firmware on the blue card. Dont you read the previous posts? Just install the wood firmware that was posted in the few comments before and it will work.

    And do you know your writing is somewhat rude?? Just saying.

    I'm sorry I didnt mean it in a bad kind of way. I'm really sorry if I offended you.
    About your game, it could be a bad rom, if you installed the wood firmware, and even a newly downloaded rom isnt working, then the issue could possible be with your micro sd card.

    sorry again...

    It probably won't work well with the default Gateway Firmware. Go grab a patched ROM and run it on the Gateway Bluecard Wood firmware released a couple days ago.

    Will try later, feeling lazy at the moment. :P

    And it's okay, I'm just telling you cause not everyone is tolerant in here. ;)

    Tried both, a clean one and a patched one and got the same result.

    Heck if I know then, it works fine on the one that came with my R4 Deluxe, but I haven't opened my Gateway yet (Nor do I want to).
