    I know it's old and outdated, but my slot 2 M3 Perfect CF has been good to me so far and every single game up until now I've managed to play without problems. The trouble is, I can't get Mario and Luigi Bowser's Inside Story to work! It seems to load fine upto the main menu then crashes upon starting the game or the mic test. I know this hardware's outdated, but i wondered if there was a way to fix it to work as every other game that's had trouble since the last official firmware/software update has been fixed in some way to work! Thanks in advance!

    The newest firmware will get that game to work. This game has been working since last september. Have you been keeping up with the updates?

    NVM - I noticed your not using the M3DS flashcart. Isn't there a patch floating around for that game?

    Yeah there are several 'cracks' and patches but none seemed to work unfortunately [​IMG] I'm surprised someone didn't remove the protection from the game file and then release a 'clean' version that can be patched for use on any adapter

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    This is why passme is not recommended on games with anti-rom protection or oversized save files like Zelda ST.

    I'd say throw in the towel and get a slot-1 flashcart; if you're a fan of M3, then you can get a M3i Zero for about $20-25. Otherwise get an Acekard 2i or an iEDGE

    I know it's pretty cheap to upgrade, but then I need to buy a MicroSD as well, and I like the fact I can play all my old GBA games on the M3CF too!

    Keep the M3CF for GBA.
    Slot 1 for games on slot1...

    It is kinda... like this...

    Or you could go out and buy the mario game itself (GASP, BUYING!)
