    I'm playing the Xenophobia version with the Xenophobia patch, and everything was working fine UNTIL...

    I got to the spirit tower for the first time, when I killed the first phantom and went through the door to the next level, I got a black screen. I could still hear the music but I couldn't see anything and couldn't move, and the screen wouldn't restore.

    Is anybody else having this problem, and how can it be fixed?

    Does this happen every time?

    Or in expert terms: Can you reproduce the aforementioned anti-piracy measure that you claim exists in this game? [​IMG]

    Yes, so far it's happened every time. I just assumed it was some sort of anti-piracy measure. I tried recracking a different rom download and starting a new save file, just to make sure. I'm just meeting Zelda for the first time now, so I'm almost at the point it was freezing. I'll let you know if it happens again.

    It could be the brand of your SD Card. I'm using a 1GB SanDisk MicroSD since my 1GB Kingston tends to freeze some of my games at certain points.

    I'll see if I can take a video of what's happening and post the youtube link.

    I'm using an R4 with YSMenu. So far so good - I got passed where you thought had Anti Piracy.

    EDIT: It's either your...

    1) microSD card - try using another microSD card to see if it works or not
    2) maybe it's your flash card - try getting a new flash card (You also forgot to tell us which flash card you were using)

    I have played up to the 3rd rail map and have had no problems whatsoever with the game.
    I am using the AP patch for the M3 and the latest M3 Firmware. It is located on this page.
