GBA dumping issues.
« on: 24/Jul/2020 01:40:18 AM »
Hi, I'm having an issue with dumping games with my Retrode 2. More specifically, Game Boy Advance ones.
To be more precise, some Game Boy Advance games such as the American version of Scurge: Hive are giving off CRC32 hashes of 00000000. Any idea on what this problem could be?
Thank you for your time.

Some times modern video game characters chase older ones. Some times older video game characters just say the wrong thing.

Did you happen to flip the voltage switch to 3.3volts for GBA?

There is a chart here for voltage values just in case that is it:

Yes. I know some games are like that. I tried that. I also adjust the size, but it did get a hex that seems more realistic, but the Retrode can't get the game quite right.
Firmware version is 24 if that helps. I've tried a different dumping method and it came out right, so I do know it's not the cartridge is bad either.
