Sorry if this has been answered before, but the forum search stupidly refuses to accept any word shorter than 4 characters. Tried to search for [+"Mario Kart DS" +"here we go"] but apparently I should search for [+"Mario Kart" +here] which is ridiculous. rant over. I have backed up my own Mario Kart DS card (European version bouth in Spain) with Rudolph's 3in1 expansion based backup utility. When I load the original cart, at the initial screen I hear the usual throthling sound followed by mario saying "yahoo!". When I load the dumped ROM through my ak 2.1 (with AKAIO, if that makes a difference), mario says "here we go!" instead. Does someone know why this happens? The game runs ok otherwise, but I'm really curious about this strange difference. It wouldn't mean squat to me if I were using a downloaded ROM since there could be different builds, etc, but since I dumped it myself... edit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHGJZbF4dl8 edit2: forgot to say that I also dumped my cart's save and used it on the flashcard, and also initialized the cart's save with the backup util and used an empty save for the rom just to make sure it wasn't something that depended on the save file... I got no variance.
