In an age when Slot-1 Flash Kits are coming to an end, it is always nice to see an update for the card that brought so many into this hobby. Wood v1.62 is a small compatibility update, that features R4i specific RTS fixes. Let's update our YWG supported cards and get back to gaming!

Important Distinction
Now, there are so many fake Wood R4 versions which have nothing to do with me. Only Wood R4 for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com), and AK RPG are supported by me. I can only fix bugs for these specific releases. Do not post bug reports or ask for updates for clone cards running a fake version of Wood.

Compatibility:
  • 'smurfs 2, the (europe)' fixed.

Old newbie here... Will the Wood R4 v1.62 firmware work on my old M3 DS Simply?

If not, what do you suggest for the newest firmware for that card?

Thank you!!

Went ahead and took the leap, seems to work great!!

However, seems my old .sav files don't work on the new firmware, do I need to rename them? or is there a converter? or am I out of luck?

Again, thank you!!

Found the answer to my save file issue too! For others that might be looking, the file needs to be renamed from xxxxxxx.SAV to xxxxxxx.nds.sav .

Thank you again, sorry for the multiple edits.

Wood is also able to read .sav files, ther is an option to change the type of the save file,
but since your files were in .SAV with caps lock I don't know if it would work.

Ancient thread I know...

But is there any chance of adding the ability to auto-boot a .nds file specified in the .ini file?

This would allow the creation of 3DS homebrew that could modify the said .ini file and boot the flashcard directly to the selected game.

Also, any chance of releasing the source code?

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
