    It been a few days since the big release, and Gateway Team is busy working out the remaining bugs and polishing off the next release, but this time around they are requesting a bit of help to insure full Zelda v1.1 compatibility with their next beta release.

    They added also for those a little more tech-savvy the following note:

    So there you go, if the community can get together now and follow the above easy steps and send them the truncated ROM's and fresh saves for those problematic newer Zelda cartridges in the various regions, the quicker you will see the next official Gateway Ultra release posted.

    If you can't get your Zelda to work with the current .sav then you have a newer one. Or if you need to use Sonic's temp fix with USA region, then you have a newer one.

    This is for those not able to run the exploit yet and have problems in aussie,japan,europe with later versions of Zelda.

    If you running it fine, there is no need to worry. -- Only for those getting a corrupted save error after transfering it to their New 3DS

    Why? Do you expect them to spend $90 USD per cartridge for every region and cross their fingers and hope it doesn't work so they can use it to make a fixed save file?

    Should we keep a list of what card info has already been sent in so they don't get duplicates?

    dump the game via gateway and then load the ROM with Crappy Tiny Reader could be a method.

    What? What good would a ROM dump do? Obviously they don't have a cartridge that is experiencing problems or they wouldn't be asking for help :P

    Wow you're beyond stupid. And pray tell, how will you load said ROM dump on your N3DS? Do you have access to a 3DS cartridge factory?

    Gateway should learn to read and use Sonic's solution.

    They know about it, but it does not help other regions outside of USA for now. -- It is always best to have the original pair of developer eyes look it over, incase an offset was missed even if it is working for most.

    This has nothing to do with how NEW your OoT cartridge is.
    Me and my friend both have launch day OoT (PAL) and our savegames are not compatible with eachother's cart.
    Unless they shipped 1.0 and 1.1 carts on the same day of release, which I doubt.
    There must be something else that makes some of these saves incompatible, but I have no clue what it actually is.

    My cart ID is AQEP510111
    His cart ID is AQEP510134
