    I've been looking everywhere, but can't find a solution as no one seems to have a simple answer.
    I've tried multiple ROMs; US ones freeze after Game Boy Player screen with "Save File Corrupted" and EU ones freeze with a white screen.
    I've tried IPS-patching the US one; the patch I found worked until I started a new game in SMB3, where the game seemed to be playing, but pressing buttons didn't do anything and the camera kept shifting up and down for some unknown reason. I tried patching the EU version, no luck.

    Any suggestions?
    I have an M3 Real with GBA Expansion btw.

    have never gotten that problem
    using the iND release

    did you try changing any of the options like turning off RTS or anything?

    I have the same problem. I was using an M3 Perfect as the GBA expansion and I got a proper GBA expansion and I get the same issues.
    I've tried many different dumps of the game and none work with the M3 Real.
    I can play it ok with the M3 Perfect directly though, but I really want to get it going with the GBA expansion.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    The save patch in GBATA seems to get the game past the corruption screen, but it still gives you the error anytime you boot the game. You can just skip the screen. The game still seems to save though. [​IMG]
