    Sup guys, yesterday, I updated my R4 firmware with YSMenu. Everything is working fine (all the games that didn't work before are working) but one game that was working before : my patched Jump! Ultimate Stars game. Anyone know why? I have an original R4

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Describe how it's not working. Also try running the game unpatched and see if that works. If it works unpatched, then there might be something wrong with the patch. If it works on 1.18 but not YSMenu, then try dual-booting 1.18 in order to play that game.

    Well, I start the game, and I only see two white screen. I'll try later with a clean version. Oh, and another question, anyone know why when I am in Zelda : Spirit Tracks (E), I do not see any levier or anything for the train o.o

    Yes, that is part of the anti-piracy (in the USA version, anyway). It has been fixed for the USA version with extinfo; according to http://wiki.scorpei.com/index.php/R4_compatibility_list, it wasn't even supposed to exist in the European version (so it probably hasn't been fixed).

    R4YS menu can not always play patched games [​IMG] BTW, I haven't found any games that need to be patched hahaha [​IMG] That's the biggest perk to running YS menu on an R4......you will NEVER have to wait for a game to be patched again. When everyone went crazy trying to figure out the M&L BIS patch I was playing away on YS menu [​IMG]

    Jump Ultimate Stars is in Japanese, so I assume it was a language patch. Also, patches for games with anti-piracy usually come out before the firmware is fixed to play them, and there is no guarantee that we will ever get firmware updates, considering that they're all unofficial updates. In fact, there are plenty of recent games that cannot be played on the R4 right now. Please get your facts straight.

    Not true in any sense.....

    Phantasy Star 0 (U), while playable, had AntiPiracy check that wasn't fixed except by patch for a LONG time, and to my knowledge the code -- which was made FROM the patch -- is STILL not in the GBAtemp database.
    Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (U) needed a patch for the train controls for a long time, until.. yep, a code was made from the patch.
    Also, I'm pretty sure that Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story did NOT work right away on YSMenu/DSTT and needed an updated extinfo.dat

    And that's just three fairly recent games. There are plenty of others that have needed patches before a cheatcode or updated extinfo.dat was released.

    YSmenu uses the DSTT firmware as a base, so you need to follow the DSTT instructions for patching JUS.

    You need:
    1 patched JUS rom
    1 clean JUS rom
    DSLazy (or another program that can unpack roms)

    Use DSLazy to unpack both patched and clean roms. Drag the 2 folders (NOT .bin files) from the patched version to the clean version, and overwrite. Repack the "clean" rom, and load it onto your microSD.

    Thanks, I'll do that right away [​IMG].

    EDIT : Oh ya, about The Legend of Zelda, I just downloaded the (U) version, it had the french language anyway.

    Seeing as he referred to Jump Ultimate Stars which is not a DSi only game and did not make mention of a list of DSi only games, I don't believe he would be referring to a list of DSi only games.

    Maybe you need to spend more time reading than making stupid lists that have nothing to do with the discussion.


    The point he's making is that many games that are being released now are becoming very difficult if not impossible to patch to properly work on the R4.
    And with the unofficial support from ashley being dropped, DSTT/YSMenu is slowly dying too.

    Yes, that is exactly the point I am trying to make, along with the fact that specific workarounds have to be found for specific games with AP before they can be implemented into any firmware updates; YSMenu doesn't just work with everything.

    Those games are DS/DSi hybrid meaning they can be played on a DS. Also some of those games have bo DSi enhancements (Sonic racing and Bookworm). Also if memory serves me correct Assassins Creed II is compatable with teh latest unofficial DSTT firmware. Stop bullshiting and get your fucking facts straight.

    OP- I think I know why it won't work on Ysmenu. Ysmenu relies on the DSTT patching methods (if I remember rightly) and for some reason the DSTT doesn't seem to get translated JUS working. tTo get it working on Ysmenu try reading this

    Thanks injected and emigre, it worked. And yes, I saw that R4 was dying ... I'm gonna buy an Ak2i or something else soon.
