Blank screens in ROMs?
I've tried asking on a different forum before but was pretty much ignored, haha. Let's see if anyone here knows how to help me out.
I'm trying to back up one of my DS games by making a ROM of it (to be quite honest, I want to mess with it a little bit, replace a few sprites and such). I'm using a DS Lite and an R4 with the NDS Backup Tool, wifi method. I've tried with two different FTP servers, to see if that was the issue, but it has made no difference.
So, what's going on?
I get the transfer done sucessfully. I test the ROM. I get a blank screen on desmume, and a notice saying "ROM image crashed" on No$GBA. If I put it on my R4 (or my R4i, for that matter), it gives me the blank screen too, and I can see the ROM's symbol on the ROM selection menu is all scrambled, pixels out of place and all, like a jigsaw that was put together by a two year old child with zero coordination. xD
I've had suggestions that maybe I was dealing with an anti-piracy issue, but patches have not made the rom work either, so I come to you for help. Have you ever had a similar issue with your roms? If so, what did you do to fix it? If not, do you have any idea what it could be, so I can be directed in the right way at least?
Thanks a lot for the attention.
