    Ok, I'm having some trouble with BIS. I try to play it on my R4 with firmware 1.18, and it hangs up on the load/new file screen. Please help!

    Was your YSmenu installed as a firmware?

    In my R4, installing YSmenu as a firmware made the game work.

    Besides, staying with the official R4 is pointless because it's no longer being maintained by the original developers. If you find a game you like that isn't playable, you'll be forced to wait for a release group to make a quickfix for it or sit back and sulk.

    Switch to YSMENU now. It's maintained and it's a very good alternative. Don't be afraid of losing your R4, you can back it all up and use it again whenever you want. Odds are you won't.

    no i dont think it was installed as a firmware. so twiztidsinz and DeMoN both have the correct firmwares that i should download? does it really matter which one i download?

    You could set up a "dual boot" on your original R4....this way the standard R4 boots up and you select the normal icon for games to play using R4 F/W 1.18, or would be able to select 2nd icon (multimedia) to play roms using YSMenu.
    If interested, you will need to search R4 section for the thread [​IMG]

    edit: With that said, I prefer to use the Moonshell/YSMenu combo on my old R4 - it looks similar to M3 Sakura firmware

    I wish it had better 'support/compatibility' for loading games in emulators.
    The NES one works fine (Loads the emulator playing the game), but the ones for SNES/GBC don't (just loads the emulator).

    Also, you have to use Moonshell 2.06 or lower.
    2.07/2.08 will not activate the YSMenu loader.
