    The Supercard Slot2 cards are the first with auto DLDI patching then , are they ?
    Nice work , could this be leading to auto game patching ? [​IMG]

    No. It's possible, but I seriously doubt they would do that. DLDI patching is always the same, but games can be patched in so many ways...


    I hope the M3 Team will add this feature for their Slot-2 carts too [​IMG]

    It's great to see such old carts still being supported. Compact Flash? I can't remember the last time I saw one of those...

    I'm the resident Compact Flash user at GBAtemp. Few if any other members have one, and I swear by it.

    Yep, still got my SC CF which I got more than 2 years ago, and it still works great, only use it for some homebrew now though, nice to see continuing support for it, the R4 in the other hand.....

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    I have one to [​IMG], and a MiniSD and a Lite version to [​IMG]

    I have to say, there was a few homebrew that didn't work, but that homebrew also had a SC version in the zip, so it really didn't matter [​IMG] (Forgot the name, sorry)

    Can't believe the supercard team are still supporting it. I thought it would have died ages ago.

    DLDI Autopatching is awesome because it's an official DLDI, not a reversed-engineered one (AFAIK)

    New firmware, but no new patching software? Ontamarama and Puzzle de Harvest Moon still are 0 bytes after patching ):

    EDIT: Er, didn't know that v2.63 patcher was out. I was still using 2.62. Both games patch fine now. Supercard Team rocks, A++++ would buy again!

    Nice. Not very useful, at least IMO, but still nice. Glad to see SC doesn't forget about its Slot-2 brand [​IMG]

    I still use mine from a while back, but it is mainly to listen to music. My R4 handles all the games.

    Can someone test LMP-ng with this autopatching? I was getting severely screwed up music, so I deleted the dldi.scp file and it started working again (was already patched with the older scsd.dldi file).

    I believe the issue here is unaligned reads/writes, because the Supercard DS had the same issue until Barni came up with a modified DLDI file for it that supported unaligned reads/writes.

    DanTheManMS - you're right about the unaligned reads part.

    as for the question i don't know, and i don't know where people are getting the idea that this is a new dldi file. I wouldn't be surprised if it's just their standard one.

    Getting garbled music with the dldi.scp from this update, too - works fine with barni's dldi renamed to dldi.scp, though. Using lmp-ng 1.02.

    wow, I still have this thing sitting around in my desk. You know how you have a desk with clutter in the drawer under the keyboard, pens, advil, excederin, pennies, paper clips, a calculator, etc... yep that's where I keep my supercard floating around. Maybe I should pull it out and see how well the new firmware works [​IMG]
