KH Chain of Memories won't work!
« on: January 29, 2013, 11:59:29 pm »
Hello there :)
I just got a Dingoo today and I'm enjoying it very much so far.
However, I've run into one problem. That is the rom for Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories.
It crashes on the opening video. Anyone know how to fix this?
My mini SD card is still shipping, so I can't install Dingux yet.

There's not really any way to "fix" the problem with problem roms.
They either work or they don't.
Similar to how most emulators have issues with games like Super Mario RPG, Starfox, Yoshi's Island (i think) for the SNES.

It's hit or miss, dependant on the emulator (the best have pretty much come and gone on the A320 Native)
Sometimes, it's just a bad rom, and you can try dwonloading another version from somewhere different, but games like these we're just screwed...sorry... 3(

Its times like these where having the actual hardware with the actual games can fill in the gaps.
Time to bust out that dusty old GameBoy Advance-SP and do some Ebay shopping...haha. ;)

Well, its been 4 years, maybe you already moved on... BUT in case you are still curious, this happens to Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories when emulated in pretty much any handheld (psp, gba/ds flashcart, etc etc). This happens because the intro movie runs literally at the limit of a GBA processing power, so it freezes  at that exact same spot.

Now, im new with the dingoo (just got one recently), but if there is a save state function on the emulator you are using, one way around the freeze is to save right before it freezes, and then load the game from there. Thats how i got over it on my PSP and GBA flashcart.
Handhelds: GBC, GBA SP, DS, DSi, O3DS, N3DS Xl, PSP 3000, PSP Go, Dingoo A320.

Consoles: Wii, PS3, 360.
