    So I have the rom on my flashcard but it won't play. When I press start it freezes so I was wondering if using some homebrew program like twloader or whatever can I get this game to run on my 3ds

    DSIMenu++ over in the NDS emulator/homebrew section, all 3 castlevanias work perfect now.

    I had the same problem once. I believe a different kernel for my m3 flashcard solved the problem. Maybe a anti piracy code?

    POR runs fine for me in DSImenu++.

    i think you may have a bad rom. I never played it on flashcart, just an actual cart, then I dumped it myself for DSImenu++ recently.

    Well when I start it, the screen goes white, and awesomely the compatibility list is protected lol so I can't read it.


    Well I got that rom last night, I already have it on my flashcard but just didn't want to switch around lots of SD cards... I'll try it again

    As I recall the game was badly coded (as in could happen on a stock DS and original game) and the slight lag that some flash carts have here made it even worse. Some flash carts later fixed it for Konami but not all got it.

    Edit. Found the patch code, you will likely have to manually turn it into a patch (no xdelta download or anything on the link) but nothing too drastic.

    nds-bootstrap has the fix built-in.

    Try downloading the latest nds-bootstrap version, then try launching it again in DSiMenu++.
    Works for me on my end.

    Try downloading a different ROM. I've been able to complete this game on several flashcarts without hassle.

    Well I switched on the roms on my 3ds, same result. When I select the game with dsi menu, the screen goes white, maybe it's the loading screen IDK, but how long does it take to load lol
