    N-Card loader 1.33 beta

    Supports automatic DLDI patching/write access








    [​IMG]
    N-Card loader version 1.33 beta is out. This new version supports automatic DLDI patching and DLDI write access. Thanks to wilsey for the heads up.
    Here's a rough web translation of the change log...

    Whilst this card is first to have auto-DLDI patching, won't be long before all slot1/2 carts implement/copy this.

    I'm really surprised by this. I'd been looking into making an application that patches NDS files on the DS itself (not that I would ever finish it) but I see they already made it...now to see how they do it and rip it out of there [​IMG] (anyone up for a challenge [​IMG]?).

    Hmm, is there a N-CARD with 512 MB of memory?
    Scorpei: DSOrganize & DSLinux already do that. [​IMG]

    1) I believe only 1 & 2 gig versions are out
    2) Really? I didn't know that. I do like how DSOrganize can delete files off your card without loading it onto the computer each time.

    Does it patch onthefly, and does it take forever to do so?

    Yes, they have them at sky2k.com. After shipping though, it will probably be about the same price as the 1 gigabyte model at dealextreme.com.

    Nah, that's okay, I just wondered if it exists. Since it does, I can patch my cousins FireLink with it. [​IMG]

    imgod22222: Unfortunately, it only patches on-the-fly. However, DSLinux' DLDItool is just the same as the windows CMD version. [​IMG]

    Wonder if this helps out with the saving issues at all, I can't tell because of the Engrish [​IMG]

    "has rewritten the flash bad block administration module code, revised BUG."

    Excellent! The save only writes once now - it used to do it every time you turned it on even when the save had already been backed up and you hadn't run anything else.

    I am having one minor issue though - the first game I tested had no sound whatsoever (#0678 Slitherlink). Can someone else try out this particular game?

    Edit: Sound doesn't seem to work for any game :/

    YES!!!

    I KNEW IT WAS TRUE!

    Before there was a rumor that N-Card was getting a full overhall. New menu, DLDI, 5 in 1 USB, MicroSD Exention, etc.

    It is coming.

    The N-Card is preparing to destroy all!

    Doesn't work as-is on a lot of cards, but the idea is still the same and seems to be the underlying purpose behind DLDI (manufacturers can add it to their menu instead of releasing proprietary info).

    The Neo team said this is still in beta and that is why they haven't released it for the MK5. Could explain for the no sound.

    Don't forget guys, this is still a beta and is intended for testers only. I'm sure they're aware there's no sound. Unless the developers are deaf. [​IMG]
