white screens at boot with m3i zero + latest sakura
« on: January 22, 2010, 11:19:43 AM »

Hi guys,

forgive my niubbiness... I tried everything to get the game to boot with my M3 i zero, putting both versions in any position on the sd card. All i got is two blank screens. Any ideas?

thanks,
S

Oh no! another M3 card  :)

How long did you leave it on the white screens?

What version of the game are you running (v1.6 is the latest)?

I know, it sucks - i really wanted to try the game :)
latest version, downloaded today.

I've read somewhere that some of the newer cards (a r4 - whatever - clone) give the white screenz o' death as well.

EDIT: I left it on some, like, 30 minutes... the white screens staring at me like horrified gaping mouths

Bugger!

R4 cards appear to work fine, though we have had problems with M3 cards of various types.

The white screen is part of the init of the DS system and somehow your card is tripping up somewhere. There may be a solution somewhere and it may be related to the latest Devkitpro.

You can run the game under emulation on the PC, though this is not an ideal solution sadly.

With my NDS projects ---I had problems with R4 NEVER WITH M3?!

could you reveal you embedded FS setup strategy?

BTW my r4 problems was related that I did not setup/init some variabls properly....and my Fifo setup was buggy

BTW I also have  m3real  and MMLL does not have in game sound even in 1.06 version..but that topic is still open here

Have you tried running it through DSOrganise or Moonshell?

Hi, I thought that maybe the problem has something to do with the saving procedure (see the latest Picross 3D, that requires a .sav to work and shows white screens otherwise).

Can somebody post a dummy .sav file so I can try and see if the M3 works with that?

thanks,
S

There is a new version on the download site that hopefully fixes a bug in the ndslibs.

Have you tried this?

It should be uploaded though still listed as v1.06.

Hi, thanks for telling me -- I've been checking, but how could we know it was new version if the number was the same?

...anyway, it still doesn't work.  :(
 May I ask you again for a .sav file?

thanks again,
S

There is no .sav file (as in commercial games ran via a card)

We use a save.dat file which is present in the archive that is the FAT version of the game, the EFS version retains this data internally in the .nds file.

Have you tried running it through DSOrganise or another launcher. I am afriad that I cannot replicate the error on any of my cards making locating it very difficult.

Yes try a different loader. We updated to the latest devkitARM recently which has some updates. I thought it fixed a serious bug, but from WinterMute.

Headkaze, actually the mpu setup is called from the crt0 directly after interrupts are disabled when r0 holds the correct value. That line was simply added for clarity and to avoid problems if the call needs moved.

So the bug wasn't as serious as I first thought.
