Hello friends,

here is the situation:

I bought a R4i 3DS card around 2 years ago. I didn't owned a 3DS back then, so I haven't touched the flashcard back then. I don't even know which card it exactly is, I think it's not the RTS one, it looks like an older version:

Today I got a New 3DS XL with the newest firmware, and I would love to use this card to play some NDS games, but I'm not sure if this card is still supported. If I put it in my N3DSXL, I get "One error has occured... bla". Is there any way to update this card? Where do I get the updates? It seems like the are only updates for the R4i 3DS RTS card on r4ids.cn and it is diffictult to find more info since there are so many flascards out there.

I hope you can help me with my issue, thanks in advance.


Regards,

tpaxx

I have the same card but it has RTS printed on it. Just load up the Wood firmware from the site. (Not the deluxe edition as that is a GW clone). Reformat your mSD with SD Formatter v4 from sd card.org if necessary. Plug it in and play.

Most ds flashcarts go to roughly $10

DStwo is the only exception. Out of print so goes probably closer to $100?

Thanks for the help so far. I put the newest wood (1.64) on the mSD card, but I get an error on the 3DS as far as I start the card from the home menu. The device tells me that an error has occured and that I have to hold my power button to shut down the device, right after the start even before I see any progress. It looks like the flashcard is blocked by the 3DS. Any suggestions?

most likely blocked, flip the card over and check what revision it is, they have made like 20 revisions of the card which can only be found by the letter on the PCB visible by the contacts

Well maybe that is awsome how different or one of ours is a fake. Who knows? Reformat the Sd card like I suggested and if that does not work you can try this

Make sure the launcher is in the root of the mSD. _DSMENU.BIN or something like that.

I have the Revision C card, it looks like it is blocked by my 3DS. I read somewhere else, that I first have to find a DS or 3DS with an older firmware, use it to update my r4i and then I could use the r4i on the newest fw. Sadly I don't have an older DS handy.

    22 was on gamepass and had tons of players. but they removed it Feb 29th and pretty hard to find a match now.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:

    I dont play because it's no fun to lose all the time. lol. Like I said, madden 22 and early I was pretty decent at. Not sure all what mechanics changed since 23 but I win like 1 of every 10 games. Then when I do win, they try to pause glitch me or leave with a few seconds left in the 4th. lol
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yea I hate players like that, sore losers. You could always just start a season against computer, but I know not as fun.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    if im getting completely stomped at halftime, like 28-0, ill just concede and let them have the win. No fun to keep playing the 2nd half. Haha. And not fair to not just give them the win.

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    But when other people quit without conceeding, I often enough get a loss for it even though I was winning.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Year after year after year they dont fix that. Or the pause glitch people keep doing, or trying to do.

    I read online people have changed they're timezone on Xbox system to play games few hours early, I wonder if that is a bannable offense. Oh well not gonna risk it, I can wait till midnight.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Another thing I cant stand, glitch players. They use a glitch play they know your defense will fail at. And they know if you dont know how to adjust for it. They will just do the same play after play after play after play. lol. But they're not so crafty on defense and usually only win by spamming.
