    Hi!
    I want put Castlevania (U) and Zelda II (U) on my M3 Perfect.
    When I start the game, I get a Game Pak Error.
    I know of the IPS Patch (http://gbatemp.net/djgarf/patches.rar) but there are no Patches for Castlevania (U) and Zelda II (U)!?

    How can I fix it? Plz, I need the games [​IMG]

    Sry for my bad English.

    thats because of the flashcart, not the emulators.

    Be serious, this thread is full of idoicy. The thread creator was asking a reasonable question.

    While it isn't known why, for some reason most of the Classic NES and Famicom Mini games don't work on either flash carts or emulators without patching.

    The classic nes/FC mini titles check to see if EEPROM is present, if it is not then the error out. As emulation was better it was pretty much seen as a waste of time hacking them (one of the dragon ball titles had the same protection and was hacked).

    I can confirm there are. I found them on a site with the roms prepatched though, so I can't share it here.

    Doesn't contain English Castlevania and stuff though, so doesn't solve topicstarter's problem...

    When testing using VBA, please be aware that it may not be entirely accurate, especially with regard to speed (you're emulating an emulator after all). See http://pocketnes.org/faq.html#gbaemu for more info on this.
