PKMN Pearl problem

Discussion in 'Technology Help' started by Spawty, Apr 2, 2013.

    Recently, I just got a shiny magnemite in Heartgold, and I went back to see if I could train it at Mt. Coronet to evolve into Magnezone. I haven't played Pearl around a year, so when I started my ds with Pearl in, the start up screen froze. It seems that when I put that particular game into my ds (not any other game, I've tried :(), it freezes to where the little boxes that float from the o in nintendo stop moving, along with everything else. I've cleaned the gold strips at the end of the cartridge with rubbing alcohol, waited for it to try, but sadly, nothing changed.

    Hoping for a possible solution :) , (contacting Nintendo is my last resort)

    Sorry to burst the bubble, but I'm afraid nothing has changed :(. It stops at the same part every time. Thanks for the feedback though

    Sorry for double posting, but I have tried this with another ds, and it stops at the same exact moment with the other ds. I remember using my friend's action replay, just out of curiosity, to explore weird places* I know the consequences of using an action replay, but could it be possible that a one time use could affect the game forever?

    *I haven't used an action replay in forever and I'm against any cheating device used against video games. Curiosity kills the cat

    "4th gen" doesn't "have" issues. Legitimate and undamaged games have no issue trading and interacting with one another.

    Gonna have to agree here, there is nothing wrong with the hardware itself, it's the condition of the hardware that generates issues.

    So to the OP, it's probably just your copy of Pearl. You can blow into it as much as you want but if it's broken, it's broken.

    As for your Action Replay inquiry, it's unlikely a single use of a cheating device affected your game all that much. So I think it's safe to say that isn't the problem.

    Ahh alrighty, thanks for the feedback! It appears to be dead like my first ds (internal wires are messed up). Luckily, my friend gave me his Diamond (he never really did get passed the 3rd gym), so I'll be able to play more 4th gen games.

    My games are fine. They just can't connect to my wifi for some reason. Black and black2 can though

    Sounds like you're trying to connect to a WPA Wifi Connection. 4th gen games (and every DS & DSlite) can not use WPA protected wifi Networks.

    The only way to "fix" this is to change your router settings. I can not tell you how do this as there are 100s different models on the market and they're all different, Best option is to check the Manufacturers website for router or internet service provider (ISP) if you Wifi Router came from the ISP. (Comcast, BT Internet, and Virgin Media internet are just three ISPs.)

    RoySceptile I'm joking

    Sorry for 'hijacking' the topic, but would a SoulSilver playing on a DSi be able to connect to a WPA protected network?
    I just battled someone online in W2, and the configuration and all was very simple, but when I try with SoulSilver, it tells me to 'configure the settings under the Internet menu in System Settings'.
