Is there a reason nobody is working on one?
People instantly jump on fixing the antipiracy for like every game ever, but then this one comes out and nobody bothers.

Patches stopped before this game, they haven't been coming out for weeks.

Any cart that's not a total piece of shit can play the game. Even stuff with no official firmware updates that can run YSMenu/TT crap can do it because even it's got the game patched.

If your cart can't even run YSMenu and has no official support, drop it and get a real cart. Even the original R4 has better support nowadays.

Also, if you are trying to use YSmenu and this game still doesn't work, try formatting your card. That's what I had to do to play it on my M3 Real. Just make sure to backup data before formatting it.

Get Wood R4 and never worry about game compatibility ever again.

I agree with that. But at the same time, its BS.

Why? Because when there was no Wood, and when EZ Flash and other old cards ruled, R4 sucked.
I bet that when asked back there, you would have given the same answer.

So basically, that's not a good answer. Note that he didnt ask about carts.

You should consider that if a game you want to play has AP fpr many people here it seems like a single day without a patch or fwupdate is an eternity ;-)

I would stick with the CycloDS, but maybe get an R4 or DSTT to work while CycloDS is waiting for a firmware update. That is what I do. Still love the CycloDS GUI better than any. I also have a DSTWO.

I would have given the same answer because it would have been a correct answer at the time.

Or are you suggesting I can predict the future?

If they really aren't prepared to wait at all, they really should just buy the game. I'm not sure why everyone forgets that's an option.

I don't think pirates even know what the word "buy" is anymore.

So they probably got their cards by gift
I just buy a game when it deserves it (and it needs to be good, not something I liked for a month)

So, I'm assuming you buy all your games, right? 'Cause it sure sounds like you're excluding yourself from the "pirates" mentioned in your reply.
