    So I had found the ghost ship and rescued tetra, did an hours worth of side quests after that and was getting ready to return to Mercay Island. When it switched screens to dock, it faded to a white screen and the music just kept looping. I had to power off the DS and then i lost everything back until my last save point.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Sounds more like punishment for pirating the game than anything else. [​IMG]

    i havent had this problem, however, i havent did many side quests..

    also, what do u mean by side quests? for example..those red x marks? or are there more to the game i havent realized? (i know WHAT side quests are, just wondering where u have found them in the game)

    (or do u mean..find certain people (mermai-*cough*) and delivery letters?)

    ic, sorry about the white screens though, i cant seem to get that back, did that just happen to you one time? like, does it happen everytime? maybe it was just bad luck at that one time.

    i would suggest maybe the game was on too long, but i had mine on standby for over 6 hours yesturday (in the middle of a boss battle) nothing happend to me.

    It hasn't happened again yet, but I have been saving more frequently now [​IMG] I think it was just bad luck.

    i had a similar problem when i was playing online, when the scores shows and the screen goes black it freezes and the music loops, it stays on a black screen until i turn it off, i'm using a R4DS too.

    Hmmm no probs here, R4 + Kingston 1 gig. ( [​IMG] )

    What SD card are you using ?

    Suggest you try a defrag, and make you sure have some spare space on you MicroSD. (Probably just an isolated incident, caused by bad contact etc)

    I've had several lockups (screen pauses at certain frame) and crashes (2 white screens) using 2GB Kingston Japan on my M3 Simply. It doesn't bother me too much as I'm waiting for my pre-order to arrive but starting from the start again will be a pain.

    is anyone having problems with boomerang?
    when I´m drawing the trajectory, many horizontal lines appear and then the screen turns blue..

    is this a problem with R4, the game or my DS?

    I have found that sometimes using AR cheats causes the Game to freeze/loop

    I've had that happen on a few games, then I defragmented it and it was perfectly fine. (ASH wouldn't even boot up)

    Using Kingston 1 GB Japan.
