Anti-piracy Problems: SaGa 2 Hihou Densetsu!
« on: July 08, 2011, 03:32:01 pm »
Hey there, Romhacking.net! I have a bit of a question regarding the SaGa 2 DS Anti-Piracy measures.
I've looked all over the place, and found no solutions or patches that work. And those that did aren't available anymore.

So here's the problem:
I have a ROM patched with one of the English patches provided by the now-gone Crimson Nocturnal. The ALT one.
The patch, unfortunately, doesn't bypass the AP measures. Thus, I tried this... hex editor program that was suggested on one of the sites I Googled. It got me past the first AP check, but after that, if I saved, it would be erased and the ROM would crash if I did anything to interact with the game.
I got past the scene where Dad jumps out the window, and past the Partners' creation, but if I wait awhile after all that, it crashes.

Could anyone suggest what measures I could take, or any patches I could use?

We hare here to translate, modify, create games and not to support piracy so probably nobody will help you with this.
Anyway I would rename the thread to "how do i use google" because I got 2 patches in less than 5min just by google it.

The patches I found weren't available anymore, but I suppose I could take another look. Could you link me or is that against rules?

Thanks, dude. And sorry for bothering you.

EDIT: Whoops, nevermind. Still won't work.

Might not be a bad ROM; might be a bad emu/flash cart, then.
In the event of a firestorm, the salad bar will remain open.

Then what would you suggest? I'm using NO$Zoomer.
I've noticed a lot of the 'fixes' I've Googled are for flashcart problems.

From the internet I saw that mostly the game freezes when dad jump out of the window so this should be your answer:

I would suggest giving up on No$GBA—it's unmaintained garbage. If your PC is up to it, use DeSmuME instead. If it's too much for your PC to handle, buy a DS & flashcart.

If that's too much, give up now.

I would suggest DeSmuME myself as well.  I've ran into problems on numerous games and DeSmuME has had them all work (so far).
