    Don't really know where to post this, but since I just got my Acekard recently I thought I'd post it here.

    I'm using an Acekard 2.1 with the latest AKAIO firmware, and an EZ Flash 3-in-1. Every time I try to run Mother 3, the screen comes up jumbled. Whether I have a clean ROM or the patched ROM. It's boggling me, since I can run any other GBA ROM, including Yggdra Union which is also 32mb.

    Hope this is in the right section. Any help is appreciated.

    Flash it to nor using gba exploder, then restart your DS in manual mode and choose 'gba game' and it'll boot for you.
    Thats the way I got it going, anyhow.=)

    I need to use GBA EXPloader? I've been running all my other GBA Games without it.

    Alright, I'll put it on my cart and give it a try. Thanks for the advice. (:

    I've got the new 3in1+ that seems a little wonky with akaio. So that's why I'm using exploder for now.

    But, even if you don't use rudolph, i'm pretty sure that launching mother3 from the DS menu will work=)

    Yeah I've been launching it from the DS Menu, but like I said the screen is jumbled up with red and green pixels everywhere. I try the ROM on my comp and it'll work just fine, but it throws a hissy fit on my DS.

    And Rudolph Tools won't recognize my EZ Flash 3-in-1. Oh lol, I might just give up on playing Mother 3 altogether.
