So my R4i 3DS keeps freezing(as the title says)...Now I'm not exactly sure why. I have the newest Kernel Update from r4ids.cn...and I think I've got the latest firmware update on the card(3DS V4 5.0-10)...though I have yet to install it. The reason for that is because whenever I put in my flashcard, it freezes!

Now I recently got a new MicroSD card(lost the old one)...one problem might be is that I'm pretty sure I got the most recent update of the 3DS(which I think worked one my old one)...but I'm not sure. When was the last update?? I have gotten things from the store recently(I wanted to get Fire Emblem, hence the update...)...

So that MIGHT be the problem...or it could be something else? I have the Kernel in the SD's mainroot...so yeah..

What's the best way around this...I don't know too many people with DS anymore...my one friend might have one....I think...but I do know there is a way to use an old DS to "reboot" a card(or something like that)...Or do I need a new flashcard altogether now(like the one with the wifi...is it worth it??? Will I still have the same issues?)

Thanks for any help anyone can give..

The first thing i would do is, make a back up of the microSD and format it using the Panasonic SDFormatter.

I don't know how to do any of that haha....I format through my computer but I'll try it the other way too and see if that works. Thanks!

How do I find all that out? I'm currently reformatting it again but it's a SanDisk...How do I know if it's loaded up right? I put everything in the card's main root...that's how it should be right?

I meant loaded right up with roms, so there were would be hardly any space left on the microSD, that could cause issues.

Try just putting one rom on the card to see if you still have the same problem.

So I did a full reformat...and then put one rom in(along with the Kernel)...and still have the same exact issue.

Hmm weird...because the one I had WAS working then stopped after i had trouble running an update and I had to shut it down...since then it hasn't worked(yes I just remembered this haha)...since it hasnt worked...I thought the SD card might have become corrupt...but another one doesn't work?

Wish I had a third SD card...:-/

    From what I've heard about the Expansion Pack, the emulator used has some noticeable input delay and/or lag...would BLJs even be possible?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    from what i can seem to gather there's some issues but nothing dramatic enough to severely impact what you're playing

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
