    Okay first of all i just got my M3 Real yesterday. I'm kind of a noob. And for some reason every rom i have gives me bugs and horrible glitches. at first i thot it was the website i was downloading from (romulation) so then i tried a new site (nds-roms) and the games still all have bugs and freeze and stuff. especially with the world ends with you, it always freezes at the same part. is it my m3 cart, my sandisk 4gb microsd? do i need to re download the firmware? please please help

    the sandisk card has been notorious for freezing in TWEWY

    other then that game there should be any problem with other roms

    Try this:
    1.Format your card
    2.Download Sakura firmware from my sig. (the english translated one)
    3.Put SYSTEM folder on the root of your card
    4.Make some folders for NDS games, GBA games, Video, Music (whatever you'll copy to microSD) on the root of your card
    5.Copy your games and multimedia in their folders..

    And now try to run some games..
    *be sure you copied SYSTEM folder FIRST on your card

    its your 4 gb card most likely. since its sandisk its most likely class 4 which ive heard is slow and causes problems. oh and joe88 did u mean say there shouldn't be any problems with other games? lol.

    If it's SanDisk 4GB, it's probably Class2, I use it, and I don't have any problems with it..(I haven't played TWEWY, but every other game I played worked without problems)..

    okay im pleased to say that everything now works well except TWEWY, which is okay i guess, i am dissapointed but theres a rumor that you just have to slowly open and close ur DS during the scene that freezes. I've tried this, but on the english sakura, it doesnt register sleep mode with that game 4 some reason. Can anyone tell me the translations for the configuration settings on sakura? the part thats still japaneese? (i think i'll start a post on this)

    Download the latest version from my signature, it is fully translated. No need to start a topic, just seek the M3Sakura FAQ at the top of the M3 Adapter board. [​IMG]

    Please remove the names of the romsites from your post since it's against the rules and you could get punished.
