DSDatabase has a pretty thorough and positive review up. I almost ordered one a couple of weeks ago, just for the "hidden champion" appeal, but with the SCDSTWO on the horizon, I've postponed that purchase for now.

Layton 4 actually doesn't work with this new kernel, and many people are experiencing disappearing SAV files mid-way through Spirit Tracks.

Hopefully these problems will be worked out.

EZ-Flash is now saying they have a new RC8 that fixes both Zelda and Layton.

I'm wondering if I need to restart Zelda from the beginning or not. ANybody know?

Well, let us know if your SAV file gets deleted. The Water/Ocean Temple (or something along those lines -- I'm not there yet!) seems to cause this for some people, and going into Battle Mode does for others.

BlaceKid3, please remove the megaupload link to the old RC8 binaries and upload the new one .
The link to the official ezflash.cn website is the same, but the rar file has changed (ez5sys.bin CRC 5DD91830 is the newest one).
Zelda ST has a 1MB save size which is now handled by the new RC8 released today.
On EZFLASH USA forum thread i have made a small tutorial to explain how to convert old 512KB saves into 1MB.

Also layton 4 is really fixed now.

I tried to convert my 512kb save file to 1MB with your tutorial, but it didn't work. The game creates a new file at the beginning as if it is booted for the first time. This is why:
Normmatt said:
On initial boot the game writes out contents to the end of the save file, on the 512kb save it gets wrapped around to the end, On a 1mb save its at the end of that, so if you manually expand the save file it will see nothing written to the end of the save and thus will think theres no save at all.

It didn't work probably due to you using patched version that forces Zelda ST to use a 512KB save. Try using a non-prepatched version.


Yes the game actually uses only 512KB for actual save data as some of us understand it. The majority of RPG games use what is called backup memory, thats the other half of the save file. Games that use this backup memory feature show up to us as minigames. I will use Golden Sun for an example of how backup memory works. In golden sun, when you reach and run through the Colosso, your inventory and party are removed. For the game it moves this information to the backup memory until you finish the minigame event.

I haven't played enough of Zelda ST to tell you when it actually does this. I can tell you about how Golden Sun DS will do if you try and hack it to use a 512KB save if it was set up to use a 1MB save, it will crash or give you a corrup save during any minigame event.

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    Nor clothes 🤮 . Saves on time, soap, water and money having to wash them. :D

    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
