EMS USB Smart Card 64M Transfer Pak Problem
« on: October 15, 2016, 10:13 PM »
Hi everyone!

I have a problem:

I have a GB flashcart, EMS Smart Card 64M. When I burn one ROM (Pokémon Yellow), and insert the cartridge in the N64 Transfer Pak, the game doesn´t start up!

Here´s the video that I show the problem:

"There´s a problem with GB connector..."

I have only one game on the flashcart, and I´m using the original EMS software (I don´t know if Mottzilla´s program works too).

And, with the EDGB, this happens too? Or depend on the cart? I also have an EDGB, but ATM I didn´t thought about mod Transfer Pak.

Greetings!

I did a quick test and it isn't working with the EDGB either.
Only the two MBC3 roms are working blue and red.
Yellow, which is a MBC5 rom isn't working.

The (EU) Blue/Red localized versions are non working MBC5 roms, too.

I already tested in Pokémon Stadium 1, and randomly works (1, ONE, of 597 tries, counting).

I´ll test that you said.

i did some power cycle patches for mario golf and mario tennis.
maybe rom patches could be a solution for pkms, too.

if i only could remember how i did that, lol. ^^

as far as i can remember, i've used a modified version of mupen64plus to search for the nuContGBPakPower function and changed the nuSiSendMesg call parameter from
NU_CONT_GBPAK_POWER_MSG 503 to NU_CONT_GBPAK_STATUS_MSG 502

Doing it for PKMS is even more trick than in Mario Golf or Mario Tennis?

I guess that PKMS have even more GB checks than the other two.

Taking advantage this topic about EMS USB Smart Card, I have this flashcard for Game Boy too.
My question is if anyone have a Donkey Kong Land 2 rom where works without bugs in some levels in EMS USB Smart Card?
I have a Everdrive GB too. But I would like this game working fine, without problems in EMS USB Smart Card too.
I don't found patch for fix DK Land 2 rom.

Thanks!
