There's a problem on my DS R4 game, after 8 hours of game I can't begin a battle because when I do a black screen appears and the music continue but I can do nothing to continue the game


Normally this happens because the game you downloaded, also called a rom, is incomplete or is not compatible. The solution is to download a different rom of the same game and see if it works. If not, then you may need to upgrade the R4 software available here, http://www.r4ds.me/download/r4ds.html For a how to video, go too, R4 DS Card Firmware Download And Set Up For R4 DS

Hope this helps.

My ds freezes when loading the R4, or it says that there is no game in the ds slot


Stuck on Loading Screen This usually indicates that the software kernel on the micro sd memory card has become corrupted. It can also happen if the micro sd memory card is overloaded with games, music and video files etc. The solution is to reinstall the kernel software on the micro sd card and ensure the micro sd memory card is not overloaded. Leave about 25% memory free.
download SDformatter and format the sd card with that, place all the files on there, none in folders..
  • Download the correct software kernel from the manufacturers website
  • Unzip the files using a suitable programme such as Win Zip or 7 Zip.
  • Open the folder containing the unzipped files and copy the 4 files (Moonmemo, Moonshl2, R4iMenu and R4.dat) to the root of the memory card.
  • At this point put the memory card into your R4 card. Start your console and ensure the R4 card is operating correctly.
  • You may have to run an upgrade file at this point

I bought a ra(ndsl/nds ) for my ds lite and


Mine works fine!!
Download English 1.18 from the R4 website.
Unzip
You should have 4 files on your card
_system_
moonshell
_DS_MENU_DAT
_DS_MSH_NDS
you then add the .nds game files from wherever you get them from
Make sure the card is formatted first, ie there are no other files on it. try FAT. rather than FAT 32. I can't remember which but I've had no problems with either the card or the software, best thing since sliced bread, and it only cost me a tenner.

How can i get the relevant software for my r4 memory card


ok look up roms for the games but i dont how to work ds games which most people ask for. i have heard of a way to hack the capabilites of the ds with two cards one the PASSME card which is the ds carttridge and then the micro sd card slot that is the GBA slot on the bottom. but r4 can play SNES [super nintendo]

Super Nintendo games and any games before need emulators.. and the emulators need to be patched before they play.

google up super nintendo roms or the the title of a game and then rom.. Mega Man X3 rom

emulator patching

ok here we go!!!!!!rusty on this!!! so ur card is working but games no.. well if ur emulators are not pacthed they wont start so patching the emulators [or programs like ultra thing] will make sure its runs on ur R4 and make sure you download files for R4. here are the files and sites

http://hbnds.biohazardteam.org/ has emulators!! they let you play snes nes and more

http://chishm.drunkencoders.com/DLDI/#patchers ok go to the R4 files for this site ok and also it has the patching programs on the bottom Win32

extract the file ok get the dlltool32.exe file and drop it in a folder on your desktop and put the file for your R4 in the folder to and the emulator also then run program dlltool32.exe and chose the patch file you downloaded and the emulator file and run it! it should say patch success and now set the emulator and any files it came with and add games in the card and run it should work

R4 problem


Go to www.r4ds.com download & unzip the kernel. This will create a folder with the operating system.Copy these files to the root of the SD card (There should be 2 files & 2 folders) After this, copy the .nds files also onto the root of the SD card, and the games should be visible & playable when you turn on the DS 
NOTE: this will not work for the Nintendo DSi

R4 Problem loading error


Get this file extract the file with winrar, and copy the files to the DS card. The file structure should have is:
Files
  • _DS_MENU.DAT
  • _DS_MSHL.NDS
Folders
  • _system_
  • moonshl
You should now put your .nds files onto the root of the card also, and hopefully all should work OK for you

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!

Ds shuts down whenr4 inserted


You should check if the R4 card is actually R4 SDHC, because the firmware of R4DS is not compatible with it. If it is SDHC, go to this website http://rs320.rapidshare.com/files/140174805/English-1.21.zip to download the firmware for your card. If there are any roms on it, you should save them somewhere else, for you have to format the card first (do this in windows by going to 'this computer', then right-clicking on the SD card from your R4 and then select 'format'. Warning! Never select 'quick format'! This could do damage). Now your card is completely empty. Copy the files you just downloaded and unzipped to the card (5 files; _system_, moonshl, _DS_MENU.DAT, _DS_MENU.INI and _DS_MSHL.NDS). Now put the SD card in the R4 and it should work properly :) I had the same problem, and I have just solved it *grin*. I hope this was useful.
