    Because since a firmware update is needed for this, there's absolutely no way to play it on R4 anymore now that the original team disbanded?

    what makes you so positive that it will need a firmware update? odds are very good it will have a copy protection, but it still seems like you're just talking

    also, there's this gem called ysmenu

    then there's the cheat file

    if it comes down to it, there's the 15 dollars shipped for any other still alive flashcard.

    also, heaven forbid you actually buy the game and support the developers

    Which is just what the original post is suggesting...

    It smells of Clone Wars and wasn't that fixed quickly... oh wait...

    Theoretically it could be fixed in a DSTT firmware update...

    Theoretically this new firmware could have the fake-killer code removed...

    Theoretically this 'hacked' firmware could be used to build YSMenu...


    That's a lot of theories but we must give R4 users some straws to clutch at. [​IMG]

    As the above poster said, Clone Wars has a similar problem and that hasn't been fixed yet BUT the Hello Kitty City game also had the same problem and that was fixed by using by using a donor save file. Maybe all is not lost yet?

    Donor save didn't help... the r4. However it did get it working on my old dslinker. An n-card clone.

    Considering most GTA games are well worth the money. Why don't you just buy it? I'm getting it on Monday at my local game shop that likes breaking street dates. I'm playing it on NO$GBA in the mean time.

    Heh, still haven't had to replace my original R4 w/1.18. Everything I care about works... whether a patch is needed or not. Mostly not though.

    clone wars is not nearly as high profile as gta, people

    and since i'm hearing about a patch already fixing it, doesn't that make me right?

    i'm also pretty positive a clean rom solution will eventually be available. and if not, you've still got the patch.

    Yeah, same here.

    R4 is the most popular so it makes it a target. i.e. if the game doesn't work, it's probably on the R4. But also, so many people have it that they'll come up with something.
