    Maybe not enough room on r4..

    Never happened to me, but Have you put the .nds files, not the rar files on your flashcart..

    Be more specific..

    What firmware??

    What Mini SD??

    What Games??

    How your cart is set up??

    etc..

    Just a few points to help us figure it out..

    Btw Welcome to GBATemp

    Seems to be a few of recent games having issues on R4 (even using latest firmware 1.18).

    Ones I have noticed lately:
    1. The Incredible Hulk
    2. Cake Mania 2
    3. New International Track & Field

    Patching using Max Crass Method software enables the above 3 games to work.

    4. LOL - I cannot get this to transfer to other DS consoles, even though other R4 users can!

    Interesting....I wonder if firmware 1.18 has 'created' compatability issues. I'd love to know if this was so, it may be my prob with LOL also.

    Is it possible / safe to 'downgrade' firmware?

    That's not a response I was hoping for [​IMG] .....but still, it's strange that both R4s we have (bought at separate times) and both consoles (one new lite & one old phat) have the exact same problems.

    Now I'm thinking I should start from scratch...re-format microSD cards, replace firmware file with fresh d/l (?) and see what happens. Outide of that, I can't think what the problem could be.

    Despite these small issues, I'm perfectly happy with what I've got, whether LOL, etc works or not.
