Hey all. I just checked the TempGBA compatibility wiki for Super Mario Advance 4, and it says there should be no problems. I just tried a game, however, and though it does not have the usual SMA4 problem ("Your save data has been corrupted.") when the game starts, the background music is either just very loud fuzz or not existent. The game then freezes at the overworld as soon as Mario tries to move onto the first level tile from the center of the map.

I was just wondering if there was an easy way to fix this or if it's a bug to be reported. Thanks in advance! (Game Boy Advance, that is! :sp: *runs from the pun police*)

Before or after this?

I am definitely not experiencing the issues you describe, including the odd "loud distorted or nothing" audio. Check your ROM.

It's as soon as a new game is made, after the intro sequence. When Mario is in the overworld, moving to the first square from the center of the map.

Edit: So, before your picture, that is.

I'll check if my rom is the problem.

Moving from the center of the map? For me, using the ROM dump whose information follows, Mario moves from one square below the upper-left corner of the map, moving to World 1 Level 1 using the keys Right, Up.

Do you have a ROM hack which happens to be made exclusively for a certain emulator, like VisualBoyAdvance for PC?

I don't know....hm. I'll try another source.

Edit: Your suspicion was spot on. Turns out I was using the rom that was hacked to allow the E-Card levels and powers to be used.

Thanks!

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.
