OMFG! WHY HAD THIS HAPPENED TO ME!?
I literally just learned that my PS1 memory card that I WAS USING JUST YESTERDAY, crapped out on me with saved data for Resident Evil 2 and Final Fantasy 9 on it! And I had made good progress on both! ... Press F for respect and to send my memory card to a better place...
Hacked PS2 or an Arduino and the card panel front piece from a PS1. Might be able to pull something off it...

Oh god, literally a thread I would end up dominating. Where to begin?

Most games - When in doubt and about to die against a boss or something, just run up and melee. Works surprisingly often.

Unturned - Unarmed melee is OP. Especially with 1 level in the melee skill and head punches, which ends in a stunlock. (Doesn't affect players.)

CrossCode - several puzzles can be cheesed if you understand how the odd projectile reflection mechanics work. (Projectiles don't often bounce like they should... odd for a game that heavily uses that mechanic)

TF2 - Too many to list. My favorite is probably being able to entirely dodge any sentry as Scout when up close while keeping aggro.

The MM3 debug functions were removed from all rereleases like this one iirc

My copy of Pokemon White 2 isn't broken completely, but often times when I load the game it brings me to a blue screen with an error message. It sometimes works, but with no discernable pattern as to when.

My action replay DS is also broken, loading it has the action replay logo on the top screen and a blank red screen on the bottom. This and the White 2 cartridge are unrelated, I started having problems with the Action Replay long before White 2.
ARDS is notoriously screwy... makes me think they were made really shittily.
They were. I bought three of them over the span of like... 2 years. Got the job done when they worked, just had a hard time getting them to work.

Also, I had quite a few GameCube and PS2 discs crap out on me over the years. Somehow, though, whenever I used a toothpaste and toothbrush on the discs, they'd work good-as-new. Surprising to me considering the bristles in the brush.
And the abrasive s**t they put in toothpaste?

but yeah don't do that

That cable looks like a disaster waiting to happen
What cable? The action replay I got was structured like a Sonic & Knuckles cart, where you put the action replay in the DS card slot and then put the DS game you were playing into the top of the action replay.
The one here: https://www.amazon.com/DS-Lite-Action-Replay-Nintendo/dp/B000H5UY72/

It's presumably meant to be used with whatever software is on the CD, so that's even more unnecessary hassle.
You can also use it with a utility to hijack the ARDS and stream NDS files to the DS, which is cool, I guess...

but yeah, it's mainly for firmware updates and code updates.

I'd love to write scripts for parsing the tables and things for weird dex entries such as this but I dunno how the tables are structured so... that's kind of an issue.

I'll be right back, I have some tables to corrupt.

ARDS is notoriously screwy... makes me think they were made really shittily.
"Yes, without a doubt"
I wonder how many flashcards were sold or borrowed to repair them - I personally know of 6 incidents :)

Strange story is my first Action Replay DS broke so I bought a new one. I then used the official cable to update the firmware on my newer one and somehow fixed the older one by updating that by inserting it after the new one loaded. So this may be a way to fix your old Action Replay DS so you can sell it back :) (probably the problem is just a corrupted firmware in memory). They do seem very fragile though, which is why for me I've had to be careful not applying too much force between the DS Card and USB lead; just gently so it fits.
just... use an R4/AK2i/CyDS? Like actually... just use one of those. Use a SLOT-1 dumper through either a softmodded/hardmodded DSi or a SLOT-2/GBA flashcart plus an original DS or a 3DS and GodMode9 if you wanna stay legal (or don't and just hit up one of several ROM sites, not like I can stop you... but you shouldn't... but I can't stop you!) and/or dump the save.

There's no reason not to, aside from maybe the money side of things, but most of the equipment is cheap or can be borrowed from a friend (in the case of soft/hardmodded consoles or a DS with both slots at least... maybe your friend has flashcarts or whatever, who knows?)

anyways enough verbal garbage you get my point

The white 2 error says the save data could not be accessed and to reinsert the game card. However, doing this doesn't work.
Clean the contacts inside the console and on the cart, check for corrosion or chipping on the cart, try another console, check for weird noises instead of two clicks when the cart inserted into the system, make sure the cart slot is retaining pressure (there's a little flap inside the cart slot that should be pushing the cart towards the contacts) etc.

What's the W2 error?

Word of warning: don't drink out of any glassware, you never know what's been in them around here... I made that mistake.

Compression is a lot better on Linux since Linux has utilities for more than ZIP, RAR and 7zip.
>Original file (CPIO initramfs): 200MB
>After ZIP: 154MB
>After RAR: 148MB
>After RAR5: 147MB

Linux 3DS' SD access hang has (probably) been fixed. Time to recompile!

EDIT: somehow it's generating more files than are possible and they're all summing differently while being the right size...??? The f**k???

EDIT 2: no it's not, it's correct, i'm just fucking dumb
