Hey peoples,

I know you´ve heard this questions about 1000 times before, but I gotta ask it again.
So I´ve got a R4-III Upgrade Revolution for DS (Ns´DSL/NDS) SDHC Card with 2GB.

I´ve been searching the whoooole day for the right firmware. On the package is a website, from which I actually should download the firmware. It´s www.R4IIISDHC.com].

The card itself looks like this:

This website doesnt exist anymore. So I searched for different websites to download the kernel and I found this page:
http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp

I downloaded first the german, then the english version (in the third box, R4-SDHC kemel download without i mark?and tried them both on my nintendo ds. On both I´ve got a black screen, with the website url and loading...

So after that didnt work I tried a lot of other stuff, I tried wood for r4, I tried different versions of YSMenu and different kernels and firmwares and whatever they are named. I also did this all with my sdhc card formatted before I put the different versions on it, and I tried it with FAT and FAT32 System.

I know that the card is not broken, because in the morning it actually worked, it had a really old firmware on it, my daddy did this before two years or something, without a cd, he downloaded the firmware somewhere from the net, but he don´t know which page it was. But today I wanted to download new games, so I read I gotta update the firmware for my DS. After trying this, it never worked again

And I was so stupid and deleted the old firmware, which actually worked... -.-

So does anyone know what I can do?
Can I get it to work anyhow again?


Ps. I´m sorry if my english is not that perfect, I´m from Germany

Well I own an R4 of the same name and that is the same card as mine which is pictured.

http://r4dsl.net/download-en.asp

Scroll down and download R4-III v3.13 and the correct language for you. That was the latest firmware update but of course it's no longer supported. So we have to have a second firmware. After you've correctly installed or placed this firmware, go to:

http://gbatemp.net/t267243-retrogamefan-up...t&p=3296004

Follow the link in the post and download v6.56 of RetroGameFan's files.

Extract he downloaded files and place the contents of the folder "R4_Clone YSMenu" to the root of your card.

Of course, before you do all of this back up any games you might have and format your Micro SD.

EDIT: I'm not sure if this is exactly what you were looking for but it sounded like it to me... Sorry if I didn't help.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
