    Hallo guys. I have an m3 slot 2 cart and cannot find a solution.
    As I am playing the "Mother 3" rom it freezes in different times when I am engaged in a fight and then an annoying sound is coming up. So, I can't go on with this lovely game.
    Note that I have installed the latest kernel and that the game is a translation from Japanese.
    So, what should I do? If nothing, what would be the best flashcart to use in order to play Mother 3?

    Mother 3 requires SRAM patching if your playing it on a 3in1 or a M3 GEP.

    You will need to SRAM patch the game after you apply the english laguage patch, then trim the rom to fit in the GEP NOR space.

    that's funny because I have the m3 real with gba expansion and I never patched or trimmed my rom after applying the english patch and it works perfectly....bad rom maybe??? prepatched to work with another card?? I find it odd.

    That depends on where they got it. not all sources are the same.

    Thanks for the replies but nothing yet. It has to be a problem connected with the m3 adapter. I read it in the translator's team web page that m3 perfect has such problems. I guess I 'll have to get an EZ 3 in 1.

    Use the M3 game manager and make sure you use Hardware 2 (HW2) patch option.

    Should be fine after that.
