    Supercard slot-2 ndsrominfo.dat update

    Fixes 2Mb save problems








    [​IMG]
    This updated ndsrominfo.dat file should fix recent problems experienced with ROM #1158. You may also need to replace the .sav file the client creates with "1158.sav" included in the archive. Also, make sure you are using the latest firmware version (1.81 or 1.82 for rumble), you may also need to turn 'restart' off.

    Is the Supercard the only Slot-2 card that's still getting updates?

    By the way, why is everyone refering to a "2M Save bug"? Shouldn't it be a "4M Save bug", considering the save's 512KB big?

    Glad to see the supercard team still releasing updates. Something must be wrong with them as we usually have to wait weeks for the fixes.

    People don't have to buy new flashcarts once they come out. Supercard isn't that dead.

    Other than that, w00t.

    The thing you do with the 1158.sav is unneccesairy, as it won't save anything useful into it anyway. SC doesn't save DS saves on RAM, it directly writes them to the cart.

    I have a supercard miniSD and a DS fat with flashme. I put the new ndsrominfo.dat file in the supercard patcher folder then ran the patcher on rom 1158. I put the save on the SD, with the rom position on the SD, all options disabled except trip, faster playh and patch catrige access with compatibility high. I put the .dsq file on the root of the SD card and copied the 1158.sav file from the download and renamed it to match the name of my rom and put it on the root of my card. Whenever I try and run it I still get two white screens. Am I doing something wrong here?

    Thanks in advance for any insights.

    [EDIT] I also tried using the .sav file that the patcher spat out, same result.

    [EDIT] Okay, I figured it out. For the mini SD version get this file instead of the posted one, put the .sav file included in the saver folder and the .dat file in the supercard folder then patch with the options I said. Seems to work perfectly.

    This is a new update, this also fixes rom 1162 (decepticons)

    for people having touble,

    1) unpack the file above and open it

    2) look at the files and hold the 'control' key and highlight 2 files (ndsrominfo.dat and the 'saver' folder) by left clicking once on each..now let go of the 'control' key and right click one of the highlighted files and select 'copy'

    3) locate the shortcut you start the client with (on your desktop most likely, or shortcut start menu).. now right click it and choose properties, then choose 'find target' in the properties box that just opened.. the instalation folder will open

    4) find a blank space in that instalation folder and right click and choose 'paste'.. you will get a message about overwriting the old ndsrominfo.dat.. say yes

    5) patch your games and enjoy

    note.. this is meant to be used with the 2.60 client patcher
