    Hello everyone, I found out today about the Lameboy application for R4, and as I have an R4 SDHC with the latest firmware and an 8GB Sandisk Micro SD card, I thought I'd give it a try to play Pokemon Silver. However, to my horror, when I select Lameboy, it loads correctly, yet when I select one of the roms (in this case, Pokemon Silver,) it says Loading, and then it just stays on the menu. The game won't load.

    This is so frustrating! I really want to play Pokemon Silver on here.

    It's an R4 SDHC with the latest firmware.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Ok, so I made this YSmenu thing as an NDS file, I boot it up and the new firmware comes on, I select Lameboy, and it says:

    r4dldi.dat
    NO_BOOT_LOADER

    Now what do I do? It says that for all my games etc through YSmenu, but when I load them through normal R4 boot-up, they work fine. Any idea what to do? I really want lameboy to work.

    try this site out, see if it will help you get YSmenu, if not you could just have a bad pokemon rom, if thats the case private message me, I can help you get a working Gold Silver or Crystal

    You don't know how many times I've used Google. In this case, it certainly isn't my friend. Hence why I'm asking here.

    It brought up nothing but complicated nonsense and other topics just like this.

    I also had that problem [​IMG]
    A temporary solution to that is backup all your data, reformat, put it back including Lameboy and the rom and try again. It will work [​IMG]

    Hmm. Are you sure? Are you saying all this YSMenu thing could have been for nothing? And did you use an 8GB Sandisk card?

    So if I delete all this SYMenu stuff, back up everything else, format the Memory Card blah blah, put it all back on, and when I select say, Pokemon Silver, it will load correctly? Not just load and then nothing, then lets me load another and nothing etc.

    Yes
    But if you want to place more games, you have to reformat it. Same thing with titled and untitled games.
