WHO'S WITH ME?!
Also, what cards other than EZ5 (kernel < 1.41) support clean roms?
Just every other slot-1 card.
If that were true, why did so many carts need a patch for FF:CC:RoF Moogle of death? Only clean roms could get past it when the ROM filesize check went through.
All carts do their own patching to boot the game, including the EZV.
Just some carts didn't "clean up" before booting the game, meaning that the ARM9 DMA3 source address was not 0x0ed, and FF:CC checks this as the game is booted. If it's not, it checks the in-game timer, and if you've played over 18 minutes, it triggers the "thanks" screen.
It wasn't a ROM filesize check, by the way.
Your ego-stroking technicalities aren't helping me figure out what card I want at all. You just told me that "just every other card" runs clean roms, yet all of them auto-patch.
Do you have a list of cards that "clean up" correctly, or not? I'm still thinking there are at least multiple levels of alteration that some cards push on the ROMs they run. That's why we have common language like clean, patched, and autopatched.
As far as I know every modern Slot-1 card can run clean roms, but they all patch them. This is nothing new, and usually it doesn't cause any problems.
I don't think there's any flashcart which can run clean roms. Even if there is, it's always possible that Nintendo makes some kind of protection which recognizes the card and prevents a rom from booting.
Just buy a good Slot-1 card (M3 Real, CycloDS Evolution etc.) and update it when a game doesn't work.
As far as I know, no games haven't worked with the Acekard 2. You can't go wrong with either the CycloDS or the AK2.
yep, acekard 2 for people with a tight budget and cyclods (or supercard ds one) for the deluxe treatment.
Even the EZV's "clean mode" patches.
Thanks guys. That's the info I was looking for. I just want to get an accurate experience with the highest compatibility possible, even if there aren't many features like cheats.
I'll probably go with an AK2. From what I see they're on super sale at Realhotstuff.
I prefer to trim my roms. Saves lots of space and I never have any problems.
