    Hello. I received my DSTWO updated to support latest 3DS version and so it did. I formatted my SD card and copied EOS and games on it. It works really well, but however sometimes I get a kinda graphical issue in the lower part of both upper and touch screen. Even if I get into the DSTWO menu using Hotkeys it keeps being affected. The solution is closing the game and trying to load it again. This happens sometimes only and in all games.

    This flashcard is amazing and amazingly expensive too. Is there any way to make this disappear?

    PS: I'll try to attach a picture as fast as I find again the same problem.

    "Amazingly expensive" - It's cheaper than a single new DS game... assuming you didn't do something like buy it locally and pay 4x the normal cost.

    Anyways, could you take a picture of the issue?

    I have that too. Try starting it in native resolution ( hold start ).

    Does it happen to you always? It doesn't for me. Just sometimes

    Not always. But rather frequent.

    Do you have any picture? If so please attach it so that Rydian knows what we're talking about

    BTW: that cannot be normal...

    PS: do you have a custom loading screen? I do. It may have to do with it...

    That happend to me once and i noticed that when it happened there were different save files for the same game... I assumed that it was putting them together or something like that xD deleting the other save file for me worked but yeah dunno if it will work for you..

    Yes. It seems that the official SC2 loader does not clean the memory correctly after initializing, causing this issue. This has already been discussed in some other topic.

    You should use BAGplug instead, because this bug was corrected in BAG´s version of the loader (I said BAGOS before, but I meant BAGplug).

    Ok, I'll give it a try. Thanks

    EDIT: When I load a ROM, should I choose Internal or EOS?

    But I think that if I choose EOS, it will load up games exactly the same way it does in DSTwo menu and I will have the same problem...

    I dunno, I solve this by running game in native res. So eos or internal doesn't seem like an important choice to me. I just thought eos has better compability, that's all.

    I always use Internal because it's one button press quicker, but I've never had that issue while using either since BAGplug updated to fix it.

    Try it for yourself, it's not like you're going to hurt anything.

    the option is mainly for .nds homebrew compatibility. most hb work fine with internal, but there's a few that work better launched with EOS (chronoclon, scummvm, and a few others).
