    Hi all,

    I've been away from the scene for some time now, mainly because i got into the PS3 and was hoping to get homebrew on that - but decided to go back to the DS.
    So i've got a DS Lite, an R4 and if i can get hold of one, a Pokemon Black or White ROM.

    Now, let the noob questions begin;

    1) will i need to do anything special to the R4 to make it play this game? I assume the game has some kind of encryption.
    2) Should i wait until an official English ROM comes out rather than the fan-made ones?
    3) If i do get hold of an English ROM, will it work with wi-fi as a normal game would?
    4) When is the English ROM expected to come out?

    thanks all , hope these questions were not too painful [​IMG]

    1) If you use Wood R4, no.
    2) That's your choice, but personally I would use the official english one.
    3) It should.
    4) No one knows.

    Keep in mind that piracy discussion on here is prohibited.

    thanks Ping, and ill bear that in mind. To be honest, the game is only £25ish, i'll more than likely buy the game and then back it up so i don't need the cart on the move [​IMG]
