    Hi guys. I have a SCDSTwo that I use on my N3DS. In Dragon Quest VI (6), the game keeps freezing as soon as I enter the Dream World from Matt's Bed in Clearvale. Is there a fix for this? I think the Flying Bed is needed to proceed in the game. Thoughts and help GREATLY appreciated :)

    Reboot the game and load the game save, not a save state. Clean your cartridge's contacts. Reboot the N3DS. Try a different ROM dump.

    Ok, I have been using game saves, not save states. Also, try a different ROM? I don't want to lose my progress...

    You just need to replace the .nds file, not the .sav file. Have you updated the DStwo recently?

    DStwo update tutorial:


    The DStwo should be updated with all the latest AP patches, but if you want to manually patch it, use this attachment. Drag the ROM onto the Dicastia-Patch.exe, Click Yes to keep the original file (No to save over), then click OK to finish.

    How do I update it with latest AP Patches? Also, I replaced the ROM, but now cheats are not working. I can still access the cheat menu and codes/cheats are listed, but they are not working. For example, I applied the "walk through walls" cheat, just to test cheats out, and it did not work, not able to walk through any walls... Help GREATLY appreciated :)

    Note: I am trying all this on a N3DS with Luma and B9S installed. System firmware is 11.6.0-39U

    The latest AP patches should be in the latest DStwo firmware. If you have any cheats on, turn them off and reboot the game. Cheats can also cause freezing.

    I do not recommend using "walk through walls" as that can easily corrupt any running code. Try something less intrussive like "max money".

    I disabled cheats, and game froze at same place, but that was before I replaced the ROM file. Anyway, I want to use cheats in games, but now they are not working as intended. For example in DQ6, the walk through walls cheat is not working. Is there anything I can do?

    I tried max money, max medals also. No cheats are working now...

    I tried cheats one at time, even reset game and reloaded. Cheats are not working, but they are listed.

    Really wanted to use the walk through walls code. Anyone know what I can do to fix this? I tried playing a different game (Mega Man ZX) and cheats do work in that game...

    Update: Is there a place I can get a recent/updated cheat database file for DS games on SCDSTwo? Help GREATLY appreciated :)

    They probably don't work after altering the ROM. You can use another usrcheat to see if that helps. You should be able to use a clean ROM after updating the DStwo firmware with the latest EOS.

    Ok, thanks so much. I do know that the game has AP checks, I think the freeze is due to that. How do I update the DSTWO Firmware and also how do I apply the latest EOS? Also, that usrcheat you linked me to, how recent is it?

    Um... I have 2 usrcheat files on my SCDSTwo mSD card. One in "F:\__rpg\cheats", other in "F:\_dstwo"... Is that normal?

    Also, in DS game list screen, it lists DSTWOMENU as version 1.11 under help...

    __rpg folder is for r4, not DStwo, I recommend deleting that folder. For DStwo EOS, you should only have _dstwo folder and ds2boot.dat file on SD root. SuperCard team never edited the EOS version number, so it is actually 1.14.

    Hi guys. I updated to latest SCDSTwo Firmware and also updated EOS. In DQ6, cheats are still not working, yet I can see cheats listed for game. I replaced game ROM and also replaced usrcheat file. Not sure what is going on... Help GREATLY appreciated :)

    I got the same problem, I'm using DeSmuME. Do you know a way to solve the problem, or do you know which code or codes cause the problem?

    I don’t remember what caused the problem or what codes may have caused it. I play the game still, but on R4i Gold Plus. Hope a solution is found though

    I finally found a way to solve my problem, I disabled the Action Replay codes just before getting the flying bed, after I enabled the AR codes, was as simple as that. On Desmume you only nedd te click >Tools >Cheats >Disable for disable. And the same for enable. It work also for when the hero is remembering is training with the Royal Guard chief.
