    I'm using the latest version of Wood R4, but I can't for the life of me get Knytt Stories DS working correctly.

    I have everything I need in the data folder.

    First, I tried the regular ROM. It wouldn't load past the first screen where it tells you who made the game.
    Second, I tried the "compatibility" ROM. It could only load the tutorial. It froze when you press the next button on the storyboards to get into the game.

    And apparently something went wrong, as all of the files on my Micro SD were replaced with one single 00 file that's 0kb called x1000y10.00 when I tried to load one of the Nifflas levels to check if those worked instead. I had to format the card. This has never happened before. Everything just corrupts one by one, and doesn't bother to replace every single file all at once with some random gibberish file. I believe I shouldn't have unchecked "no optimization"....

    How can I get Knytt Stories DS to work and not do that crap to my Micro SD?

    EDIT: Strange, it works now.
    EDIT EDIT: Strange, now it's not working again.
    EDIT EDIT EDIT: It turns out my problems were due to a level having an extremely bugged out icon.

    Sounds like you had a pretty productive time in that hour from when you posted to when you last edited xD. Which level exactly had the bugged out icon (if I ever take the time to put KnyttStoriesDS on my mSD, it would be better to know what to fix up before screwing over my card xD)?

    I also would like to know what level crashed your flashcart. This way, I can understand what the bug is and release a fix [​IMG]

    Look at the Flag...
    Some stories have icons bigger than 30x30 pixels...

    If I remember well, stories made from MelvonDD "Speed Judgement Factory" or Toudou1620 "The World v2.4" shows this issue for example, they work fine but the icon is oversized.

    PS: Thank you rrc2soft for porting knyttstories on DS! This is my favorite homebrew, always on my flashcart. [​IMG]
