so how did you solve it?

i had about 5 black screens so far, trying ridge racer, mario and luigi dream team. Sometimes the game runned fine, sometimes it gave black screen.


Some black screens i got were just after clicking on "DS profile"
Some black screens i got were just after the 3ds game was launched.

I was using a MICROSD card kingston class 4, i bought a sandisk Ultra class 10 micro sd card and havent seen a black screen yet, but i bought it yesterday so i cant be so sure it will not hang up.


the strange part is that while on the 3ds menu, on mario and luigi EURO, the game icon appears, i hear luigi talk, but on the upper lcd screen there is no game graphic

perhaps its that im on firmware 4.4 and not 4.5, don´t know

ZeldaWW I play with micro sd 2gb trancend (class dont know) and in one of the levels have black screen. I tried another micro sd 4gb trancend class 6 with this game and have no black screen problem. (3DS XL firmware 4.2).

From Gateway-3ds's website: Firmware V1.1a. Common minor issues we are aware of: The lack of upper screen banner for some titles which trigger both region and firmware spoof requirements.

I hope this clears things up. :)

thanks that explains it all
as long as i can play the game i dont even care about the upper banner


so yea, i would avoid Class 4 memory, and use a higher speed one like class 10, sandisk ultra

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
