    was playing MMBN4 on SCDS2 GBA Emu but it has a random save issues that kills your save data so i may have to play it on VBA question is 1.7.2 like posted in this topic still the best one to use or have there been any updates


    another question i had planned to use my PS3 controller to play will this work? (i know i gotta get Motioninjoy stuff to use it on a windows PC just wanna know if it will work for sure)



    any tips or advice is welcome

    there is a modded version of the original, and it's much better and regularly takes updates:

    Good advice in this case, but has also been the cause of many an explosion, at least in my life (don't ask).

    Also, if you bump into invisible walls at any point, try changing the frameskip to 0 (or keep it at 0 all the time if your PC can run it well). Even frameskip counts cause faux-transparency (flicker) to either just look solid or be invisible.

    Thanks for the info Another World , and ill keep that in mind in case i ever run into it Ouch123


    now from what i have seen ill most likely use VBA-M was looking around there site and saw mention of a MMBN bug fix (though not in detail) and seeing i intend to replay MMBN4 i figured id go with it if it has fixed bugs as after losing my save on SCDS2 GBA Emu id rather not have anything like that happen again (which upon research is a bug that was present in gPSP the Emu that was ported to make the GBA Emu for iplayer and SCDS2 if the info i was reading is correct)

    MMBN4 = MegaMan Battle Network 4
    SCDS2 = SuperCard DS 2

    So Poly/Mono got part of it right :P

    Oh, I just though he meant what SCDS2 was, I assumed he knew what MMBN4 was.
