    Play Zelda Phantom Hourglass on your DS-Xtreme

    DS-Xtreme owners have one less reason to be angry








    DS-Xtreme owners will be happy to learn that some smart members here at GBAtemp have found a way to play Zelda Phantom Hourglass on their DS-Xtreme. Fortunately, this trick doesn't even involve an unofficial firmware upgrade or downgrade which would void your warranty, as recently read on the DS-Xtreme forums.
    This trick was discovered a few days ago and works with several games (Sim City, Zelda, ...) so you might aswell try it out if you own a DS-Xtreme!

    Thanks to brutalboy for his detailed explanations.

    I thought the DS-X was 100% compatible....obviously it seems that's not the case with any SLOT1/2 device.

    Hey Costello, if you are going to credit on the main page for those "detailed explanations", then credit the actual author:

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=545...ndpost&p=701125

    brutalboy just did a copy&paste without even crediting the source. By the way those "explanations" are just an adaptation of the original author: CougRAWR

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=545...ndpost&p=698163

    Method was discovered by go185 and I was the first to report about it working for the DS-X:

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=545...ndpost&p=699576

    Here's brutalboy finding about that method from MY post:

    Well, I just explained it from kazumi's post, I didn't ask for a public credit or anything. But please, Costello, if are going to credit me, give credit to Kazumi too. Thanks and happy playing. [​IMG]

    Why would anyone want to goto the trouble of doing this when they can just play it on m3 instead or something?



    P.S M3 is still the best [​IMG]

    This just demonstrates how poorly the DSX is supported. Zelda and these other games should have been working natively by now. I'm not going to claim that the people behind the DSX "don't know what they are doing" as I'm not qualified to do so, but you can't help starting to doubt their abilities when my even my outdated M3 Lite is able to run these games, thereby outperforming this supposed top-of-the-line slot-1 flash card.

    Oh, and before I forget, greets to the people who discovered this workaround.

    Because .. people already HAVE BOUGHT THE DS-X and are not rich, spoiled kids?

    Besides, this is not any "trouble" at all, takes maximum two minutes.

    Does this work online? I used this trick, but my game lags out of every online match. Just wondering if its because the rom is semi-hacked.
