    Arrow CycloDS 1.56 Beta7 released

    CycloDS 1.56 b7 firmware is released. This fixes Bookworm (been waiting for this fix) along with other roms.
    UPDATED TO 1.57 b1 - HERE

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So you installed the new firmware and your favorite game still don't work, look at this compatibility list - http://cyclods.ject.pro/

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Release date: 15 January, 2010

    CycloDS Evolution v1.56 BETA 7 firmware has been released for testing, changes include:

    * Patches for some currently known Metaforic protected games applied by loader, thus eliminating the need to use these games with Stealth Mode
    * Game compatibility fixes (DSi 0010, DSi 0021, DSi 0025, 3212, 3499, 4207, 4472, 4522, 4550, 4565, 4571, 4581, 4587, 4622 and possibly more)
    * Miscellaneous other bug fixes

    This BETA mainly concentrates on fixing known compatibility issues; hopefully most known issues are now resolved. The only remaining issue known to us is the "ice peak" issue with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. We have not had the time to progress this far in the game ourselves and have not been able to reproduce the bug, so we would appreciate it if somebody could upload a save file for the point just before the problem occurs in the game, along with instructions for how to trigger the problem.

    For those who have been concerned with the matter of applying known patches for Metaforic protected games by the loader, we intend to do so from this point onward, starting from this release. Stealth Mode is to be used for such protected games when a patch does not yet exist; as soon as a patch is available (either from ourselves or a third party) it will be integrated into the CycloDS loader.

    This should finally be the last BETA before the final 1.56 release. We're looking forward to your feedback, and providing there are no significant issues a final release is imminent.

    Stealth Mode
    ------------

    Stealth Mode is a powerful new feature exclusive to CycloDS Evolution, targeted at defeating a new
    type of "anti-tamper" protection which has appeared in recent games. Previously the only way to
    defeat this protection was through complex software cracks, being extremely time consuming to create
    and entirely different for each game, meaning considerable delays for users given the likelihood of
    a proliferation of titles featuring this protection. CycloDS Evolution's automated solution provides
    a means for instantaneous playback of these titles without any need for the user to patch or alter
    the ROM files in any way.

    Please note the following points with regards to Stealth Mode:

    - The Cyclo Evolution stealth code is still in development. As such we are releasing a BETA in
    order that we may obtain feedback and support our loyal user base with new functionality in advance
    of the final release. We trust that should you encounter any issues, feedback will be forthcoming
    through posts in our forums.
    - Stealth Mode is currently being optimised and tested for stability. The current BETA release in no
    way reflects the final performance of the feature and is presented purely to offer a glimpse of the
    advanced functionality which we strive hard to provide. In using the BETA Stealth Mode feature for
    playback of anti-tamper titles, performance may be slightly compromised due to the fact that the
    feature has yet to be completely optimised.
    - Stealth Mode is only required for games which feature the new anti-tamper protection scheme.
    CycloDS Evolution will automatically enable Stealth Mode for games known to feature the anti-tamper
    protection at the time of the last firmware release. Should new anti-tamper releases appear in
    between releases of the Cyclo Evolution firmware, stealth mode will require manual enabling by
    holding START while loading the game.
    - While a game is running in Stealth Mode the Enhanced Menu is disabled
