    From what I've read, it isnt really worth it...

    What does it actually do?

    Sure, wait for a game that you want to play come out incompatible before you update...

    Is it actually out then?

    Anyway, what were you expecting? everyone was getting so hyper about this being delayed when actually I couldn't think of anything I actually wanted to improve my R4, other than those minimal compatability issues.

    And you're moaning that this release isn't enough, now you're R4 can play EVERY SINGLE game on the market? As you say, the release probably wasn't even worth it for them, so I say hats off for the effort.

    The R4 was able to play all games from the beginning, just that Worms and other games needed an ARM7 fix. All the R4 did was make our lives a little easier, so that we do not have to unpack and fix ourselves. But I 've heard that other games are buggy with 1.12, so just stick with 1.11 and fix the ARM7 games yourself. It's not hard.

    It's not hard for computer-literate people like you and I... But most of my friends would just tell me that their R4 doesn't have 7 arms, and to stop being stupid.

    Same here, no problems using 1.12

    I can even play problem games like Yoshi's Island DS with no problems.

    I thought Contra 4 had problems, a friend of mine has 1.12 and Contra slows down. [​IMG]

    an update is usually (90%+ chance) better than the older one and this update is no different.
    I have 3 games i think that require arm7 fix and this update helps in this case so why shouldn't i get it.
    Though the update is very small in size compared to the previous ones... why is tht (4mb+ while previously 7mb+)

    Maybe he as a lot of cheats activated? Those can slow down games, at least with me here.

    Yeah he had cheats. I'm still think that some games are glitchy, as least that's what I've heard.

    The built in Arm7 Fix can give you +1 to games. You can't trim Arm7 patched ROMs.

    Huh. R4's trimmer refused to trim them for me, and pretrimmed just ended up with an error when trying to play.
