How to download games onto your r4 ds.


Firstly you need to make sure you have the following:
An R4
A micro sd card which fits into the R4
A micro sd card adapter so you can connect it with the computer
Winrar - you can download a free 4o day trial software (which doesnt actually rin out) http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR-32-bit/3000-2250_4-10007677.html or http://www.win-rar.com/download.html are good sites to download winrar from.

Ok now you have everything i personnaly use romulation which is a free ds game download site. You may find it easier to make an acount to download alot of games. Download your selected game to your desktop. Save the file. Then insert your micro sd card to your computer, open the sd card file through either start>computer>removable disk or autoplay.
The downloaded game should be in winrar format. Open the download, you should be able to see a file named after the game. Open the file, and you will see the game, then simply drag the game over onto your sd card into the folder named "games". The game is bow on your ds R4.

Keeps coming up with save file can't be found.


As you have not really gone into specifics, I am going to have to assume that you are using an R4 cartridge to run your games.

When you switch on your DS with an R4 in it, a number should come up in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. This indicates which firmware version you are using. The latest is v1.18 and it can be downloaded from here if you are not already using it....

http://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html

When you have unzipped the file, copy it to your R4 card replacing all the duplicate files.

This should significantly improve your R4's compatibility with newer roms (e.g. Football Director, America's Next Top Model etc) compared to earlier firmware versions.

There will still be a minority of games that don't work (e,g, Worms 2 Open Warfare and The Hulk), but solutions to individual games not working can be found on websites such as http://gbatemp.net in the forum section.

Good luck!

R4 card the save data could not be accessed .


[DS] Cannot access save data fix. Some cards like the R4 and a few other cards have trouble running certain games,
With the exception of one game "Star Wars Jedi Alliance" All games can be fixed to work on these lower qaulity cards.


So why is it broken?
Basicly at some point during development nintendo changed the way save files are handled, saves are handled by a file inside all ds roms called "arm7.bin", older cards such as the R4 and others have no way of reading or using this updated arm7, so the solution is to swap the newer arm7 with an older arm7 taken from a working game.

This is refered to as an arm7 patch, swap or fix.


So how do i fix it?
First of all just try update your cards firmware. Firmwares for all cards


If that doesnt work there are a few programs out there that you can use to arm7 swap, DSlazy and DSbuff.
DSbuff being a more up to date program.

DSbuff v.1 Final link: DSbuff

Extract with 7zip, winrar or winzip: 7 Zip

Pre extracted arm7.bin from Contra 4: arm7.bin
If you download the arm7.bin put it in the folder you create in step one then you can skip step 2 completly.


NOTE: If DSbuff doesnt work properly on your computer *for example the program crashes during the arm7 swap follow this guide for DSlazy* DSlazy links and guide


DSBuff Instructions:

Step one: Set-Up
Create a folder on your desktop and name it the game you want to fix.
Extract DSbuff anywhere and start it.

Step two: Unpacking
Run DSbuff.exe and click browse dsbuffbrowse.png now choose a game you have that works.
Click unpack dsbuffunpack.png then browse dsbuffbrowse.png in the new drop down section.
Choose the folder you created on your desktop
Click "Unpack Checked" and make it so only Arm7 has a tick.
Now click dsbuffunpack2.png

Step three: arm7 swap.
Click the Drive:\ directory up the top or just restart DSbuff and click browse, now select the game your trying to fix.
Click on arm7 dsbuffarm7swap.png then browse dsbuffbrowse.png and choose arm7.bin from your folder you created. Now click dsbuffarm7swaptick.png
Watch the green line to see when its done, it will unpack, then repack then when its finished give you the option of what to name the file.

Congratulations your finished, enjoy your game.
