    is it possible that soft reset will ever be incorporated into the bios rather than patched to the rom? reason i ask is because with the release of all these slot1 cards none of them have ingame reset.

    am i the only one interested in a bios soft reset? none of the current slot1 cards have soft reset and for slot2 owners it would be one less thing to patch if it was incorporated into the bios. is there some kind of limitation preventing from such a feature from ever becomming possible? i find it kind of silly that there is no such thing considering just about every bios for xbox1 had a reset via button combination.

    Great idea. Or adjusting brightness on the fly. It must be possible..

    If you patch the game [​IMG]. The game is what is running at the time you are playing a game (duh!), that means that the "OS" of the flashcart is not active anymore and therefor can't take action itself (hence why a game is patched to allow for soft-reset [​IMG]).

    Soft reset works on the M3 simply. Just turn it on in the menu.

    yes the new firmware added the feature. still think it should be added to the bios however i have an m3 so no complaints.
