Ok guys I think I have finally found a way to run HG/SS on R4 smoothly.

Most people may know this, but, there is a new update to the unofficial firmware called Wood R4. Their new firmware was released quite recently, I think in June or so. Whilst the official R4 website's newest update (1.18) was released in 2008.

http://filetrip.net/f12065-Wood-R4-1-10.html

This is the link for Wood R4 an UNOFFICIAL firmware release.

I have just started playing HG/SS using this firmware and it's been working perfectly, so please give it a try and reply here with feedback.

On a side note, Sega All Star Racers (2010) never even worked on the official firmware update but works perfectly on Wood R4, so it's a good sign.

Hope this helped a bit.

I know this has been asked tons of times but still:
I got No$GBA 2.6a (yes, legally), dumped firmware and bios from a friend, and got a ROM of SoulSilver (U).
It goes VERY smoothly until I try to save.
It freezes in the middle of saving. Anyone have any idea how to stop this?

@.Kaiser, set the save type to Auto in options, then save the options.

It's already set to Auto.

Also, I have a Platinum rom, but until I remove the firmware files it's really slow.

is there a working Black Screen code for English HG that will work on R4ds (not R4i)? I would rather not play the english patch, as it's not fully enjoyable when dialouge is in Japanese. However, if such an AR Black screen code doesn't exist i'll just go with the english patch.

Hey, I currently play soul silver on no$gba 2.6 and just until yesterday the game started to become slow and choppy, but when I'm in a battle or looking at my pokemon or in my bag, it runs smoothly at 100%. Why is it only choppy when I'm walking around and why did this happen all of a sudden and how do I fix it?

Will this "wood R4" still allow me to play all my other games as well as 1.18?

Overworld is always slower. It's normal.

Whats up fellas?
I got DeSmuME 0.9.4
and also got a patched version of english heart gold
It works well but I ran into a few errors
I've gotten froze twice.
One were I defeated bell sprout tower. I went outside and could only go to the end of the bridge, then everything was black. I tried going back in the tower but the game froze at the door. Next I just beat the 1st gym leader, then got the egg at the pokemart.
When I left the pokemart it just froze my character but the sign was still moving.
Any help on this? Or any other roms that work fully?
Let me know, and thank you.

When I open the game it tells me that something about saving could not be accessed and to turn off the DS and remove the cartridge. I've tried resetting, reloading the cartridge, but so far nothing has worked. I've tried changing it to the "Nintendo Logo" setting and resetting, but that just tells me that Rom Image has Crashed.

EDIT: I'm using No$GBA 2.6, by the way.

As I realize that this question is asked a number of times,but i've looked around and found barely any results. I just would like to know if there's a prepatched rom for heartgold that will run on no$gba with no problems. by teh looks of it so far no luck at all...:/ I don't necessarily want to have it USA version, but I'd like to be able to read things in english

I actually tried to play using desume a number of times but that usually crashes on me so I play only the no$gba...not to mention neither of the two seem to be updated anymore anyways.

I know you can with GBA ROMs, I think it should work on these ROMs...

Can anyone help me? I played No$ HG, and got the black screen after Oak thing, so I switched to DeSMUME 0.9.4. Now, after Oak's done talking, it goes to a blank top screen and the lower screen shows the menu without any options and "A-Touch". If I hit A, it says Error found in slot 5 or something like that.

You have to get a Black Screen AR code. Just google search it, or Youtube may work too.

Got one, thanks. And I suggest putting the code in the first post so newbies (like me) will get it quicker.

EDIT: Um, how to speed up no$?

It should run fine on a computer with good speed (unlike mine). You can also boost the speed by going into emulation settings, and do the speed with a *2 in it.
As for putting the code up, that's not allowed.
