I just got my copy that was used. What should I do to start game from scratch?
I believe you have to use an R4i Save Dongle to send a blank save game over. Other than that, I know of no other way
You can also use an NDS Adapter plus. Otherwise there's no way to do it.
Alternatively you smash the cart into bits of dust and snort it, then buy a new one.
Use save dongle to tr and use a backup save, which will corrupt, and make you restart.
Has taking it out while saving been confirmed or busted yet?
IIRC, there's a backup system in place to protect from total loss of data. Zelda: OOT 3D, for instance, has several parts of the save file with the same label. I haven't tried it, but my guess is that if you try and force data corruption, the previously written data is silently used the next time the game is played.
The funny thing is, for the price of an R4i Dongle, you could just buy a brand new copy of the game. They're not selling for much here.
You can also corrupt a save file and upload via the dongle, which is probably easier than searching for a blank save.
lol, try to pull out the game card while the game is saving, it may corrupt the save file and let u create a new one.. i didnt try that, its just an idea, so try it on your own risk
Put your game on a microwawe for 5 minutes, the saves will don't existe anymore.
And the game too.
SuperMoLOL's idea may be a cheap alternative.
I put it on the microwave, nothing happened. I put it in the microwave, and it worked.
Hay, I said it first.
Sorry but english isn't my natural language, sometime i make some mistakes just like that.
Holding all the buttons during bootup of Zelda OOT3D deletes everything. Try that.
Far as I know (don't know about dongle use/save corruption etc) there's no traditional way to reset the save data like you can with other games.
Gamestop actually pulled used copies and stopped taking trade-ins for the game a while back because of that issue. They later gave in to their usual greediness and started trading/selling used copies again. Capcom is aware there's no reset and said it will not be fixed. Personally I think any person or store selling used copies of mercenaries should warn potential buyers of the issue.
Anyway, good luck with corrupting the save.
Have sex with it!
Or just have a 'save corrupter' on standby like they should. BTW: There's a way to disable the chip select/enable or corrupt address lines on the chip, to make the game think that the save is corrupted. This works for resetting many laptop board's password and probably there is a way to do it for the 3DS cart. Too bad the damn thing is so small that you'll probably just fry it. I thought that the 3DS had the saves on the system but the first poster implied that the cart had it since they loaded it and it was not empty.
I corrupted a save by ejecting the cart when it was saving. Upon restarting the game I had to delete the corrupt data and create a fresh save
that made the save stay permanintly!
Nice that you got it to work without even taking the risk of taking the damn thing apart or deciding to use it as a guitar pick.
