    I updated my firmware a while ago to 1.5B4 and I don't have my GBA support any more that I had with my previous firmware (the lastest final version). Does anybody know if the support is gone for good, or just for this beta? I really want to play mother 3, and gba exploader doesn't support files larger than 16mb (I'm pretty sure that beta GBA support did).

    Or if you can tell me how to get Mother 3 to work on GBAExploader, that would be super [​IMG]

    I believe you have to enable support in the xml in the CycloDS folder?

    Yeah you probably need to meddle with the XML file to get it working again. Or you can just downgrade to 1.41.

    I guess I wasn't clear enough. In the v.1.5 beta 4 firmware, the GBA Support feature is no longer in beta and always enabled. Since you are running that firmware, it's already active. Just select your GBA file and play.

    Not quite, some people (including myself) have noticed that 1.5b4 disabled GBA support and to re-enable it, one must edit the Cyclo's XML file.

    Assuming you've checked your SD card upon your PC or Mac for them without success, and they are indeed gone (no missing drive space), I'd say it's time to backup and format. Also, have you been using CycloEdit Professional. If so, and you told it to save the XML changes after directing it to where the GBA files are, go into the XML and delete the line for GBA Save. Should make your GBA folder reappear.

    My GBA roms are there on my PC and when I use GBA Exploader. They just don't appear in the GUI.
