    They'll release a new loader when a big name game doesn't work. If you're lucky, they'll also fix Sega DreamCats (Yume Neko DS) at that time.

    Dont want to buy it because thats why I got an R4. For the Imports that I am not going to pay for. I've tried all the old firmwares and nothing is happening.

    Or a different flashcart. The Acekard 2 is $23.47 USD shipped at DealExtreme.com. They have the DSTT for $19.37 USD shipped.

    The fact of the matter is that the R4 sells on name alone; it doesn't have to be good anymore.

    I cannot believe the R4 is dead, well, actually i can [​IMG] Its too overrated.. I guess.. They only update, like Destructobot said, every time there is a main game that will not work or, I guess, every few months if there are quite a few games that need updating because they dont work.. I will update from R4 to something else only when my R4 starts to fail, or the games will not work anymore.. Right now I dont have the money to get a new flashcart, but when i update, I want one that i can easily update themes by myself, One that plays all the games, and has a cheat file which can be updated from Narin's thread.. Any ideas?? I hope the R4 in general lasts a bit longer until i can get some money to buy a new flashcart.. Anyways, they will update soon, I guess.. Depends on how many games stuff up till then!!

    Is your kernel v1.18? I saw it has 3 games fixed to work. If you're not using v1.18 try to use it first, you can find it in R4 Tools thread in my sig, look under "Recommended Firmware"

    Why is that? That game is not very popular anyway (not like FFCC for example)

    The only games that currently don't work on the R4 are the obscure games that aren't really worth playing. AKA Shovelware

    Last firmware didn't fix #2000's problem, so I don't know if new firmware would fix Yume Neko either.
    Maybe R4 team has something against scene releases hitting 2000 milestone.
