    EDIT: (I'm slapping this up here so people don't waste time going through this topic)
    Narin's cheat update includes a fix for this. We love you Narin XD (no homo)



    Anyone else experiencing this? I'm on R4 1.18 btw.

    I expect to get chewed out for making a topic right away but there's no rush for an answer, I got Gundam Musou 2 to keep me busy for a bit [​IMG]

    Yeah.. this game have the same problem as Chrono Trigger has.

    Hope a AR code fix, a ARM7 fix or other hack fix.

    Someone in the game's release thread said that you could use an arm7 patch to make it work on R4. Unfortunately, I don't think they said which patch to use.

    Someone else said they managed to get it working ingame in no$gba if they disable saves. So that might mean the piracy protection is related to the saves.

    Calling dibs on the fact it might use a bigger save than 512Kbyte.

    hmm interesting
    i don't wanna moan at Narin but a cheat could be useful hehe
    but first things first the problem has to be solved
    else it would end like daigasso dx and i don't like that idea

    I tried with a R4 (with a patch for can use bigger saves), and don't work too, it's freezes in the same part.

    hmm... I've only done the arm7 replacement once for Bleach DS...I'm not experienced enough to quickly do it again without a tutorial. Anyone tried, or care to try, doing it?

    Yeah I tried 1024 and 2048 and none works. Might use some special save format ( as in, the starting ".sav" on the original cartridge is not completely empty like the ones created by flashcards ) to thwart cheating/hacking of characters

    I tried that and got the same thing... I just used the CHEAT.DAT thing that goes in the _SYSTEM_ folder and it worked fine.... no patching necessary
