    Hey there, I am new to this site as a member though I have used GBATemp throughout the years for homebrew and other applications.

    Well here is my dilemma.

    SO a long time ago I bought an R4i Gold Revolution for DS.
    At the time it was meant for DSI and had the "game icon" as Starwars Force Unleashed.
    I have it working and everything but I am still having problems with some of the roms not executing properly and stalling on the white screen.
    I am using a DS lite.
    Like I said thought it is fully working minus some roms. My issue is that I want the newest wood and cheat.dat/usrcheat.dat files and when I add them to my cart it no longer runs. The official site I used in the past for firmware updates seems to not exist anymore?

    IS there anywhere I can get some functioning up to date firmware for this cart?
    or is my best bet to just stick with my current setup?

    Huh just mixed some firmware files and it looks like its my DS_Menu.dat file that makes it work.
    When I power on the DSL my theme is gone but it reads Mars English Version v1.03.

    Yeah actually I believe that was the site.
    I still have working files, I just want more up to date ones.
    Do you want me to send you my current setup to see if that works on your cart.

    So far on the ive found that for my flash cart to function properly and themed it requires these files.
    _System_ and sub folders Resources and Themes. This is where the usrcheat.dat file is kept as well.
    _DS_MENU.DAT(filesize is 3,695kb as apposed to all "updated" firmwares/kernals I've downloaded being 300kb - 500kb)
    _DS_MENU.SYS
    and maybe MOONSHL and Moonshl2 folders as well as the _DS_MSHL.nds files.

    with all of that is anyone able to tell me which cart I have and whether I have the most up to date files I can have?

    My usrcheat.dat file doesnt have cheats for the games I actually play. Kingdom Hearts, Pokemon SS etc.
