    Having trouble trying to run LoZ: Spirit Tracks. It hangs at a black screen just after the Nintendo logo.

    Edit: Apparently this only happens with the "Revision 1" rom. Was able to get a different rom and it loaded fine.

    I've got excatly this flashcard:
    [​IMG]
    With my New 2DS XL with Luma CF the flashcard is not always recognized (I don't know why), but when is recognized I can run Wood R4 (v1.64). Wood is no more updated since 2013.
    My question is: there is a YSMenu that can run on this card and give more DS games compatibility then Wood?
    Tried to install YSMenu on my R4, and it starts, but have always the "unsupported dldi name" error with every game.
    There is an old tutorial in this forum about this error, but the links are all gone and I don't know if it can help.
    Thanks to all that can give answers to this questions.

    I have a problem with Inazuma Eleven 2 - Firestorm (E). The game freezes when I open the menu or the connection map while the music plays. The same happens if I get caught in a battle, I finish it and the game freezes before I get the Exp. What do I do?

    It works if I'm using the regular menu but it keeps freezing with YSMENU. And I used the NDS Scene Rom Tool and nothing changed.

    I'm using R4 SDHC DualCore Revolution 2019 if that helps.

    With the Anti-Piracy Bypass Code, I can play but if I win a battle or match, it always freezes before the "You win" message, and without it, I can't even open my equipment menu.

    There is a remastered version of Inazuma Eleven 2 Firestorm, it runs very well, and uses original character names (MAMORU ENDO instead of MARK...)
    there is a thread here inside gbatemp, you can search and test if you like it.

    edit: the original version of inazuma eleven runs with original r4 kernel, the hacked version of inazuma eleven runs with ysmenu but not original r4 kernel.

    edit2: you can search for inazuma eleven 2 firestorm remastered and undub... :3

    Wood R4 has 99.8% game compatibility, the .2% are unknown, obscure, etc. basically you can throw a game at it and it will work. Don't let the year of the last update fool you. YSMenu is a decent kernel but it's not as good as Wood R4 in terms of compatibility. Don't be so quick to judge a book by its cover, you have what you need already. As I've stated already, YSMenu is only designed for DSTT based flash cartridges, yours is NOT a DSTT flash cartridge.

    Many thanks for your answer!
    Yes, after several tests I can confirm that my card works great with Wood R4.
    Is not the same for my other card, the DSTWO. I can use the YSMenu, but I can not understand why there is a limit with the microSD size (2Gb only). Others alternative to make DSTWO works at its best?
    Also tried with TWMenu, but til now without success...

    You can test the YSMenu kernel similar to your R4's name... there are many folders inside the ysmenu rar file available for download... but I'm not sure if setting up ysmenu as defaut kernel gonna be work... also, I'm a big fan of Zero Two :3
    hope it helps... you can just test one by one... but look for similar folder names for your cart...
    sorry for my poopy english... :v

    thanks my friend .. but I had already seen it and in fact it is the one that I am currently using...

    what happens is that with that kernel some Roms like Kingdom Hearts Re: coded o Mario & Luigi partners in time gives them white screen.

    haha nothing happens .. I'm in the same with my English XD, in fact I had this same version but with the screw on the back and I wonder if it could be the same or would it be different.

    The downside of all this is that if I put the wrong one, it could even crash my R4 and that is what I fear the most.

    But as you say .. it is a matter of checking the folders and that they match the same.

    Just in case and if it works, I'll leave the menu of this R4 and see if there is a tip for the YSmenu.

    EDIT


    Well, i follow their advice and I tried 3 folders that came in the download, unfortunately they did not work and they caused me a black screen, fortunately did not block my R4, so I looked in other pages and luckily I found this one.


    They had a configuration for that card that had the screw on the back, I downloaded it and to my surprise it had the same configuration as my same R4 card. So I installed it and then updated the libraries that came in the retrogamefan download (the DAT folder) And now the R4 works for me with the updated libraries.

    unfortunately it cannot be updated to the YSMenu but at least I was able to get the libraries for the Roms function and now KH Re: Coded and Partners in time its already works perfectly!!

    Anyway thank you very much @alexander1970 and @Isso_Non_Ecxiste for your comments!!

    Hello everyone!
    I wanna say I found a way to hack (again) my hacked game to run well on YSMENU kernel... I'll have to remove something in order to make it run...
    Now, I'm busy working on it, I've got sometime and someone gave me a pc for a while, so... I'll be doing this...

    You should use the stock firmware for a Supercard DSTWO. Like Wood it already has essentially perfect compatibility. Also, it has by far the best in-game menu of any flashcart including RTS and a cheat menu. Absolutely no reason to use YSMenu on a DSTWO.

    I got a card from r4isdhc.com the "R4 SDHC 3DS DSI Dual-core smart update" . I`m assuming it does not support 1.4.5U
    Is there anything that will work on this card to support 1.4.5U
    And how abut the DSTT, will that work on 1.4.5U?

    If it doesn't work on 1.4.5U then you can install Unlaunch which removes the flashcard blacklists so it should probably work then (just make sure to leave the "Launcher Patches" On in TWiLight's Unlaunch settings when installing). Once you have Unlaunch there's three ways you can lanch it
    • The default menu ("Launcher" in Unlaunch), as long as you have Launcher Patches on when installing Unlaunch this should work
    • From Unlaunch directly (the first option in the list), this works even if you disable Unlaunch's Launcher Patches and sometimes works for weirder flashcards that the menu still dislikes
    • From TWiLight Menu++, as long as Unlaunch is installed you can also launch flashcards from TWiLight Menu++ from the menu when you press SELECT (the top box is the Slot-1 card)
    At least one of those, probably even all of them, should work.

    I think the DSTT works from the Unlaunch menu or TWiLight Menu++, but not the official menu even if you have Unlaunch.

    Hello all,
    I'm a bit confused on what to use with my R4 SDHC Revolution GOLD Pro RTS carts. I want to play DS games on my old DS/DS Lite. I believe that mine have a time bomb in them. This is it, but the 2020 version. I regret supporting individuals like that, but it's my fault for not looking into it more.

    If I can't use the WoodR4, I should use YSmenu instead, right? I'm not sure if I am setting it up correctly. Download the Kernel from here, use SD formatter, Multi-Card Update, and that's it? Did I miss anything?

    No need to download the kernel from the official site. All you need is a formatted SD card, using the formatter you linked, and the Multi-Card Update you linked. Extract the Multi-Card Update and then you need the files in "RetroGameFan Multi Cart Update v7.06\R4i-SDHC YSMenu\"... just copy the following files to the root of your SD card:

    Games (folder)
    TTMenu (folder)
    R4.dat
    TTMenu.dat

    Stick any games in the Games folder and you should be good to go :)

    Hi. :)
    You don't have to regret buying it; I have the exact same flashcart with YSMenu installed as the only kernel (no need for the original kernel), and it works great. Simple and effective, it scrolls the menu quickly, has its cheat database and is highly compatible. :P
    Only it's made of cheap plastic and needs to be handled with care. :(
    YSMenu has the advantage of loading roms also from directories and subdirectories, while the original kernel loads them only from the SD root. :huh:
    Anyway, the procedure you described is the right one and you have not missed anything. :yaynds:

    Thank you. I misunderstood the directions. Do you know happen to know what size micro SD cards that I can use with R4 SDHC GOLD Pro? I thought the limit is extremely low. Like only 32gbs?

    I bought another R4 clone before to brute force into my N3DS which doesn't have a time bomb in them. I should have bought another one of those, but I believe that stop making them. Do you happen to know what the size SD cards we can pop in our carts? Thanks for the help.
