Drastic dissapears/ stops / crashes at the moment the game loads.

Post by Cadencecassettes » Mon Jul 16, 2018 3:42 pm

*Drastic is amazing, I love it thus purchased if after the demo*
Until now it has been working perfectly and smoothly but just today, when I loaded the game that I had been playing via a shortcut ( or even manually ); the game loading screen appeared and dissapears and Drastic was reset.
I searched for the problem, I ( now ) have Google play version 10.6.08 ( all ) and I read how the recent Google Play update has flaws, so I downgraded to the factory version but the problem persisted and when I again updated Google Play, I got the said version ( I did not notice what version I had before )
Can any of you guys help me out ?
Is this the same Google Play problem ?

I am really sorry for not me mentioning those details before.
The Drastic version : r2.5.0.3a
Here are the screenshots

I have only saved the ROMs in the SD card in a folder called Drastic, the app is installed in the intern storage .

Then the loading screen appears and just vanishes.
Thank you for replying !

You have your ROMs in a folder named "Drastic" on your external storage which is what is normally used as the configuration folder on the internal storage. This may be causing Drastic DS to crash as it may be conflicting between the two. I suggest renaming the folder with your ROMs.

The screenshots weren't really helpful, but at least you solved the problem.
