I was playing Rogue Squadron II with my external hard drive, and after 30 minutes, sudenly i heard a buzz noise that lasted less than a second, with a tiny freeze... at first i didnt mind, but after some minutes the buzz returned, and it was more frequent, like 3 times a minute...

I disconnected the hard drive and i played the game via SD card... i played for 20 minutes without the issue.... so im not really sure if this was an issue with my external hard drive or with the copy of the game, or the nintendont build, etc...

My external drive is brand new, less than a week. 1TB, toshiba.

Any ideas?

Those buzzes are normal with that game, they may be fixed with a new version of nintendont. Try to change force progressive and widescreen off to make them less frequent (if they are on).

You have a sleepy hard drive. Nintendont is reading a random sector of the drive to prevent it from going to sleep. That's why your experiencing a small freeze.

Thanks, so you too experience the same? This does make sense because i did play a couple of games before RS2 and that didnt happen... i'll disable force progressive and widescreen to see if that solves (or at least reduces) the issue. Thanks!

yeah I had the same problem with that game, when I had force settings on the game just simply frozes after 10 minutes, but with those settings off it didn't anymore. The sleeping hdd may be problem but probably not in this case, because most other games work fine. You can only hope for a fix for just this game in a future release.

Sorry to dredge this thread back up, but I'm having the same exact issue. It's only when going into the level select menu and I also get it on the medal presentation results screen. Gameplay is fine. I have the Nintendont settings to default, but i enable the in-game progressive mode on game start.

Would this simply be just a USB reading issue (I'm using a USB flash drive)or is re-ripping the ISO necessary?

Minor issue but thanks for any input!

I tried it again last night and it didn't buzz on the level select menu anymore, but did buzz for a split second on the medal screen after the end of a level.

Anyone have a general idea what could be going on?

Did you read any of the previous posts on here as your question has already been answered before you even asked it. The beeps are normal for the game using nintendont. Not all games play perfectly with nintendont and rogue squadron 2 is one of those games.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    but that's a long shot

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.

    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space
