    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.

    the saveproblem seems to be a problem of a to small savegame file,use the savegame fie from the M3 fix und you are on the run (i think)

    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.

    I'd try it but I'm sick of going through the game just to find out my save is gone again. At least now you don't need to patch the game to play it.

    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. [​IMG]

    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:

    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.

    You will probably have to start over with a game.

    Did you even bother to read from the list of roms updated?

    Then again, thats probably too much for you to do.
