Game breaking glitch
« on: June 10, 2014, 07:02:44 pm »
I was experimenting with pokemon black(trying to tweak, shiny hunting, the normal.) and i flew to driftveil city becauae i got bored. The game lagged on the fly animation and it turned pink. It was weird. I jammed to the Driftveil theme, and took four steps left. The game's screen turned completely black, and no buttons worked. I pried the cartridge out, and put it back. My save file for the game was gone, and the new game button was discolored and wouldn't work. Had to get a new cartridge! Anybody know anything?(i have never used any cheating devices.)

Hotswapping something that's not designed to be hotswapped often leads to the bad kind of undefined behavior. Protip: don't f**k with a live circuit.

That's very odd. Do you remember where you were before you flew to Driftveil City? I could try repeating it. It could be a random cartridge reading problem I suppose. My Pokémon Black has no sort of 'the cartridge is ejected' message, unlike other Nintendo DS games.

Also, which DS/3DS system were you using? I'm asking just in case that has anything to do with it.

Hi! I identify as transgender female.  She/her pronouns, please.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.



Thank you Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

Beyond all philosophies are the things that go best for you; what makes you feel content. It's important to always follow your heart, so unless you feel perfectly happy about it don't just follow something because it is popular, fits a style or is conventional. Sometimes you may reach a point you're not sure who you are, but as things settle I'm convinced things do work out in time.

It might have been the fact that i used an old ds that is my "glitcher." I don't cheat on it, but i pull off tweaking and other glitches on it. Its 3 years old, but its never had a problem. I just dont want to screw with my 3ds game controller by spamming arrow keyes. I did a few wild battles before flying, and something weird did happen. I went into a battle with Crystal, my fabulous Serviper. It wqs the only one in my party, and i went in dark grass. A double battle engaged with a normal pokemon and a ?. I was freaked out, so i ran from it and flew to driftveil. Could either of these have affected it? (Also, i dont screw with circuits or change batteries, for that matter. ) Does the internal battery run dry and corrupt games like it did previously?

DS game cards don't have internal batteries, as they have flash memory instead of SRAM and the DS has an internal real-time clock, thus rendering them unneeded.

Are you sure the cartridge is real? Did you buy it from a game store?  :o

Yep. Bought it new at GameStop a while back.
