    The DS-X's EEPROM is dynamic. Just think, since Pokemon D/P are 4MB saves, how do they work?
    It's all about the protection on the new games, a better arm7. That's the trick with the arm7.bin replacement, see?

    How much are DS-X paying you?

    But seriously that's not the point. The point IS that people have shelled out a LOT of money for this cart and aren't receiving the support and updates they should be getting. I know DS-X don't "support" illegal uses, but still... It's a bloody flash cart. Maybe their lack of support is just a cover up because they're too clueless enough to actually fix the issues.

    And how many times has this been brought up already?

    I'm 100% happy with my DS-X. I've tried over 300 different ROMs, and ALL of them work. Including download and play. (I had to patch three of them with this arm7.bin)

    i got a free ds-x, and i still prefer my supercard CF that I paid for [​IMG]

    my main complaint is that the time from ds-on to game-playing, is about 20-30 seconds with DS-X, yet only about 2 or 3 seconds with supercard CF.

    Not a patcher, a ROM disassembler called DSLazy.

    DSTool is the main proggie at work. DSLazy is just a GUI for using it.

    And Nubia,

    What loathsome is talking about is the act of using the japanese Sim City DS rom's arm7.bin and placing it in another rom, such as Zelda or the U or E Sim City.

    The arm7.bin you need was linked to earlier in loathsome's post.

    DSLazy can probably be obtained from either this sites download center or anywhere else by just entering "DSLazy" into google. All you do is unpack the rom you want to play, replace the arm7.bin inside the newly created directory with the one you download and then repack.

    You mean to say you have a problem with a five-month wait between each update? Come on man! [​IMG]

    Write "Scorpei wiki" on a piece of paper and put it in your pocket. Whenever you're in doubt about anything NDS related, just feel in your pocket, and lo - there's the solution!

    Thanks again Scorpei, for hosting all that info. I don't know what DS-X users would do without you, to be honest.

    Did I understand that correctly? If you use the Pokemon games with this "old" arm7.bin they save perfectly?

    Yeah. The new arm7 is not compatible with the current DS-Xtreme but the team doesn't want to put the patch for it because it's only the commercial games(ROMs) who uses the new arm7

    Yeah, I know that - you have to insert the old arm7.bin, otherwise you can't save in Zelda, Hoshigami (US) or the US/EU release of Sim City. But that has nothing to do with the little problem the Pokemon games have with the DS-X, does it? (Most times it works perfectly but sometimes it does't save the Box so you can use it normally but when you restart it is like it was before you started the last time. Nearly lost Dialga that way (if I hadn't had a backup from yesterday [​IMG] )

    Dialga was SO easy to catch. The three other ones were very difficult.

    And what do you want to tell me with that? If it just disappears because the Pokémon Box isn't saved and I have a Starly Lv2 for my HMs twice (because I traded it for Dialga) and I can't catch it again, then I don't mind if it was easy to catch. However, Azelf and Uxilo were very easy ... only had problems with the Lv70 Pokémon in turnback cave [​IMG]
