    This might be the wrong forum for this, but I can't seem to get StarFox to load. I have the M3 with the newest update (tried it with the old as well) and I get two white screens when it loads. Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Yeah, I did update my software and still no go.

    Thank you anyway for your advice, though.

    I don't know about the M3, but on the EZ4 you just have to wait about five seconds before it actually boots. Try it out, maybe it'll work.

    I'm using M3 3.14 manager with the e26 update on my DS.

    I'm writing StarFox to an Ultra2 1Gb SanDisk CF card.

    I've tried most combos of options to no avail. I'm trying No trim, Fast Boot, 1x, software reset right now...UPDATE--That combo didn't work either.

    Where is the option to compress or not? I don't see it. Unless that is in the M3 manager v26 that I just uninstalled to put the 3.14 on my machine. That version seems to have more options, but the 3.14 seems to be the newest...am I mistaken?

    I redownloaded as well...from two different sources

    Star Fox Works perfectly fine on my M3 miniSD (should be the same for CF). I used e26 update and Game Manager v26. The combination that worked is:-

    Trim-Rom, Normal Mode (I think you can only get this on the v26 or so Game Manager), Software Reset.

    I guarantee that it works. If you get two white screens with this combination, don't be fooled. Wait for at least 10 seconds (time it on your watch, just to be sure) and the game should have loaded just fine.

    Please check the M3 compatibility list before posting here next time:-

    10 seconds? weird. I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the advice and the link as well (bookmarked).

    Thanks again, I'll let you know what happens.


    UPDATE: You are my hero! v3.14 didn't do it with those settings so I had to reinstall the V26 to get it to work, but there it is with no white screens. Thank you, again!

    I said 10 seconds just to be on the absolute safe side, it actually takes only about 1 second or so (wanted to clear this up before someone uses 10 seconds to add to the M3/Supercard battle).

    Glad it works for you. V26a is the latest game manager, 3.14 is quite old I think (it was released with v19, but I could be wrong).

    Well, personally I'm using the latest firmware and writing software, the rom is recognised as correct by offlinelist, I'm using the settings you mentioned, so I don't know what may be wrong [​IMG]

    [edit] re-flashed with safe mode, no trim and it worked.

    U or J?
    Even tho i have supercard it should be similar.
    J needed the slowboot.
