    Okay, so here's the issue. The new USA Mario and Luigi doesn't work

    Here is a list of cards and issues

    R4: Unable to select save file
    Supercard DS One: Works if you have a fast MicroSD and this fix (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=179032)
    CycloDS: Works, but freezes when saved (still saves file, but game needs to be restarted)
    M3 Real: if you download the latest sakura firmware and use touchpad 4.4a, the game works without any freezing
    DSTT: Freezes on startup
    Ez Flash VI: Working with this patch (http://ilix.in/0e29f)
    Edge: Works, but freezes when saved (still saves file, but game needs to be restarted)
    ITouch DS: Not working

    Some attempts have begun to fix this, however they have been met with more than one issue:
    1.Save file is able to be selected, but then freezes to white after selecting it
    2.Unable to save/load game
    3.Freezes when you save (does save though)
    4.Freezes at some points in the game (white screen)
    5.Freezes in first team battle
    6.Freezes after first Bowser battle
    7.First Bowser battle continues indefinitely

    Supposedly there are around thirty anti-piracy measures, so this may take a while :S

    This is the information I have gathered so far. Some of these measures might only affect certain cards, but I'm not sure which ones

    So basically this needs to be fixed. i have no idea how to do this, but just hope that with this information, personal experince and a ROM someone will be able to

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Nice 6th post? But thanks for the info...there's a fair chance "the crack masterminds" didn't know any of these problems [​IMG]

    Even if we forget the fact that pointless posts like this one sent the GBATemp server into meltdown, the desperate need to be the 1st kid on the block playing a game really gets to some!

    Calm down man, there is only one topic on this, and thats a solution for the Supercard

    I just thought I'd make a topic about the problem, allowing a possible resolution!

    In the shadows behind you
    Add the 'EZ-Flash Vi' and 'Edge' to the list of not working cards.

    I'm assuming that's Ez Flash V right?

    is this a anti-piracy update that prevents the game from running?

    Acekard2i/2.1 (no difference) - AKAIO Firmware 1.4.1 - The game hangs as soon as I start a new game , but the game loads, I can use Mic Test.

    I may have found the said crack. http://www.ds-scene.net/?s=viewtopic&nid=8349

    It doesn't prevent it from running, but it freezes at the save selection.

    But it is anit-piracy

    There are also more than one measures, as shown in the first post.

    Same here, no problem after patching the game, I've played the game for more than 2 hours and still no freeze or any kind of problem, I can save and load just fine too [​IMG]

    I'm using:
    DSi 1.4u
    EZ Flash Vi hardware[805]
    8GB Transcend microSD Class 6
    Firmware loader V12
    Kernel 2.0 RC5

    for once I'm glad my G6 Real handles this game perfectly fine after the patch. I also couldn't select a save file at first but after the patch all works well.
