    from what i know arm7 is a file in the rom that now stops certain flashcarts from working by saying sumthing about the safe file but there is a hacker arm7 file that fixes that so you must patch it with the arm7

    What do you mean by "be ready to patch 'em!" Do you have to crank yourself up or something? Presumably, you have never used the Arm7.bin fix, it is extremely easy to do and takes only a couple of minutes or so to complete.

    I still have an old R4 cart that I use as a secondary cart these days. Seems most recent games work 'natively' without the need of any patching, but there has been a handful or so since the 1.18 firmware was released (I've never bothered to keep a record).

    But, seeing you asked, here's a compatability list for the R4: http://wiki.scorpei.com/index.php/R4_compatibility_list [​IMG]

    Also I would like to note, if you use YSMenu on the R4, you don't have to patch any ROMs to get them to work.

    Did you bother to read the thread? OP got his complete list from me (which, low & behold, lists "The Hulk" as requiring the Arm 7 fix) approx. 27 hours, 19 minutes before your enlightening post!
    BTW, nice avatar....which "square" is you? The black one, or the white one?

    edit: @Narin, thanks for that tidbit of info about YSMenu. I'm sure OP will be glad to hear it. [​IMG]
