    I just started Zelda: PH a few days ago. Yesterday when I was playing it on my r4, it kept on freezing randomly. Once, I just went in a cave and it froze before the picture of the cave came. Once, I was battling monsters and it froze. Is this a bad dump? I heard Zelda doesnt need arm7 fixer on the r4.. so what's wrong? [​IMG]

    EDIT: And also every other game I tried, which is like 20, have worked perfectly.

    I wouldn't think so because trimming just takes out the empty space in ROMs...

    It's most likely a bad dump. Just redownload it from somewhere else.

    Don't you need to ARM7 patch this game? It is on the ARM7 patch list.

    more than likely a bad dump, because i have played mine for hours if you know what i mean and i haven't had one single problem. i've had it freeze on me, but my r4 does that with any game.

    You need to verify all the roms you download using clrmamepro (http://www.clrmame.com) and ADVANsCEne's (http://www.advanscene.com) latest DAT file.

    that way you will know if its a rom issue or its a hardware issue.

    Potentially it could be a slow microSD card or as someone has suggested a bad rom but to really find out of its the rom there is only one way.

    and you should do that to ALL your NDS rom collection not just this one.

    Nope. and if you did it wouldn't be causing wii_will_rule's problem.

    Oh really? I once trimmed a Rune Factory ROM only to have it freeze on me while I was exploring the mountain area. When I replaced it with the untrimmed ROM it worked perfectly fine.

    ok thx guys [​IMG] I'll try your suggestion Ad_enuff and I'll try downloading from another site too.
    And also, I did trim this rom with ndstokyotrim v0.50. But I used the same trimmer on all other roms as well, and they all worked perfectly...
    Also, Zelda download play works flawlessly, but just the main game screws up sometimes.
