    M3/G6 DS Real Firmware v4.3a X
    Auto Anti-Piracy Fix Added
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The M3 team has released an update for the M3 and G6 DS Real Slot-1 flashcart series.
    Version 4.3a X includes an "auto anti=piracy fix," meaning problematic games like Chrono Trigger DS function normally without any hiccups, do not require any ROM patching, or any cheat codes whatsoever.
    The team also fixed problems with the soft-reset function for a few ROMs, as well as fixing the overall functional compatibility of a two problematic games (see below). The team has tested all Nintendo DS ROMs up to #3500 on the flashcarts and they should should all function with no problems.

    [​IMG] Compatibility Fixes in M3/G6 DS Real Firmware v4.3a X:
    [​IMG] NDS #3499 - Rittai Picross (Japan · 256Mbit · Caravan)
    [​IMG] NDS #3477 - Army Men: Soldiers of Misfortune (Europe · 256Mbit · Xenophobia)

    I wonder how this "Anti-Piracy" feature will hold up against new games with check in them? Is it like an auto patcher?

    Amazing how flashcarts continue to evolve.

    i'm just wondering if this one works with my four crash guarantees:

    Chrono Trigger (U) {3055} - Still freezes where i am in the sewers seems to be triggered by the rts feature
    Phineas and Ferb (U) {3343} - Works
    Star Trek - Tactical Assault (U) {0645} - Works
    Theresia - Dear Emile (U) {2877} - still freezes

    i've tried official dumps and self made nds backup tool dumps with previous builds and i still get lock ups

    i own most of mu roms but its way more convenient to carry around one or two micros and having my whole collection than to have to worry about the original cartridges banging around in a travel pack

    I see every flashcart group is copying the auto piracy patching idea from AKAIO [​IMG]

    Well, yes, you're speaking the truth. [​IMG] (Caution: ironic)
    So, if someone in front of you buys a cheeseburger at McDonald's and then you do the same, then I guess, you copied his idea. [​IMG]

    But that's exactly how the world works its called subconscious messaging (subliminal advertising). You hear someone say it and you think hmm that sounds good I'll have that.

    3212 - 100 Classic Book Collection (EU) still has the incorrect save size causing downloaded books to corrupt the save after it gets over 512K.
