    Ok this morning I was cleaning up and dropped a wooden box of games onto the floor, unfortunately it fell onto my Racing Gears Advance GBA cart thus rendering it unplayable.

    Oh well at least I can play it on my M3 CF...I can't, tried many combinations but it won't run. Anyone got it going? I'd hate to only play this via emulation.

    I have the same problem using a G6 lite. I love the game but I can't play it, I get a white screen, it's funny because I had an old EZF Advance card and it played smoothly, I don't get it.

    if anyone can help, thanks.

    Try running it without enabling any of the extra options like in-game save states and compression.

    If this doesn't work, after doing the above, try replacing the rom that was put on the g6/m3 with the clean rom. This may cause saving issues though, I'm not sure.

    Try using different options in the "ROM Patch" tab in the U-Disk Manager.

    You might also try using GBATA to apply the SRAM patch, the game works on my EZ-Flash 3-in-1 after patching it with GBATA.

    I downloaded GBATA, but there are too many fixes, which one should I use ?

    thanks for your help

    i'm happy for you, but i don't have that flash card. i'm using a g6 lite.

    is there a ips patch file for that game ? where can i find it ? or is the gbata tool enough to patch it ?

    thanks
