Since there is no thread dedicated only to game compatibility, quirks, ect, I'm making one. I'll update this first post with a master list. Of the few games I tried So far I've ran into black screen loading with Wave Race Blue Storm and the inability to play multiplayer in Need for Speed: Most Wanted. Both games are NTSC region. If anyone has any notes they would like for me to add to the list just let me know.

Need for Speed Most Wanted
NTSC- Unable to play multiplayer (Nintendont 4.422)

Wave Race Blue Storm
NTSC - Loads to a black screen (Nintendont 4.422)

lol you are kidding right? there is a full wiki ...
http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Nintendont_Compatibility_List

all games do work if any game has issues is becuase you are forcing settings that arent compatible with said game or using a bad iso if you can show me your nintendont settings with a picture and say your iso MD5, i will for sure tell you what is your issue, since all games work, but noobs "dont mean to offend you" think they can force any setting on any game or use bad isos wich sometimes are badly shrunked and break nintendont.

How often is the wiki updated? As for bad isos, yeah I've heard that explanation a few times. Do you have a suggestion for the best way to shrink games or which games shouldn't be adjusted at all? I haven't dabbled in GC gaming in months. I just simply don't have time to fool with every game like the average member here. I finally got around to updating my Nintendont last night lol.

Don't shrink your isos at all. Not worth the issues it can cause.

Some issues can be becuase of settings, you didnt posted your nintendont settings yet.

Need for Speed Most Wanted
NTSC- Unable to play multiplayer (Nintendont 4.422) this can only be caused by 2 issues- 1you have maxpads set to 1 wich only recognizes the 1 controller, 2 you are using an imcompatible controller or trying to use 2 usb controllers at the same time wich doesnt work for any game.

Wave Race Blue Storm
NTSC - Loads to a black screen (Nintendont 4.422) this is 1- badly compressed iso that brooke the audiostreaming most likely, or forced setting on it that it doesnt like.

while you shouldnt shrink games becuase its always like this that manny people have issues in the games they report but if you must becuase you have no alternative use DMtoolbox and before shrinking first make sure the ISO md5 matches redump then, if it checks use this toll and set the 32k alligment option when shrinking.

Also if the wiki was edited everytime someone makes noobs mistakes and says the game doesnt work when it does we wouldnt ever get a decent wiki.

Thanks for the help everyone. As soon as I can get a hold of a 128GB SD card I'll just keep the shrinked isos that I know have no issues and just nix everything else for clean isos. As for NFS, I know my controllers are compatible and by "default" I keep my maxpads at 4. I'll try a clean iso for this one.

i hate the "dont shrink your isos" mentality - truth is MOST work fine when shrunken.

I shrunk every single game and left the problematic ones full size - this saved a lot of space and again, the games work fine. believe it or not is your choice, but seriously - shrink them all and keep only the problem games full size.

we say this becuase every 9 in 10 reports of issues is becuase people used bad tools like gcisotool to compres audio streaming games and broke them so if you saw the same issues reported countless times your better off telling people to not compress their isos if they dont know what theya re doing anyway its better have full md5 checked isos.

I updated it sometime last week specially after testing all 200+ games I have and updated mainly the info of audio streaming games. Most games work shrunk just need to know which shrinking app to use. Use DMtoolbox as a general rule and only where noted use the GCIT (e g Kirby Air Ride).

Regards

Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2 do not work on Nintendon't. It is stuck on a black screen when the game boots up. I tested on Nintendon't version 5.457.

Way to bump old thread. Lots of changes since this post was last commented on
I really need your guys help. Nintendon't version 5.457 dies not support Metroid Primes 1 & 2, and stays on a black screen when I begin it.

I cannot edit the wiki, so please adjust the wiki to show that both of the Metroid Prime games (both NTSC-U) do not work.

dont edit the wiki when you are the on doing something wrong...

some games do not workwhen you force settings on them so take a picture of your nintendont settings, my guess is you are forcing stuff on the game or have a bad iso.
