It's a well known bug. So far as I know, it works on flash carts. A solution is to download one of the .sav files being circulated right now which were created right after the Treacherous Twister level. Then you just don't play that level.

I noted that using the real bios to play some bugs disappear:the intro is displayed correctly and some bugs during gameplay are fixed.However the freeze at treacherous twister level remains.
I hope that this can be useful to fix the bug in the next VBA version.


I noticed another bug,when a level is started the heart counter is not full,it has only 2 hearts instead that 3.As i have tried the only emulator that plays this game correctly is DreamGba,even the Treacherous Twister level is fully playable.

Also Dreamgba gives problems,it crashes in a later level.
However nobody seems interested in this game.........

Sorry to bring back this topic, but i've been dying to know how to use DreamGBA so it can play DK King of Swing. I've tried several configurations, and none of them work. Obviously i'm using the RisingCaravan release.

I could flash my flash cart, pass this level, then export back the save, but it's a real pain to do this everytime I want to play that level.

Many thanks.

P.S. Hi, im new to this forum. I'm gonna be honest, I do not intend to stick alot. What really is bugging me is that problem with the rom. At least i'm honest ;)

As i said even DreamGba crashes in a level of World 3,so my suggestion is to wait for an updated emulator that can play properly this game.

VisualBoy Advance saves are compatible with DreamGBA, so i'll just need to use VBA for playing the rest of the game. ;)
That's why I wanted to know how you managed to make it work.

Also, I managed to get thru donkey kong mode (by flashing to my cart), now i'm playing with Diddy so i can finally finish the game 100%. :)

Thanks for your reply btw.

You must use Dreamgba TNG,you can find it at Zophar Domain,also make sure to use the GBA bios.

Thanks i'll try it and edit my post with results after.
Couldn't make it work.
I tried with the loader, but apparently it has a bug.
So i drag-dropped the file on the DreamGBA_Win32.exe, but it freeze.
I've managed to make Tang-Tang work, with big graphical bugs (screen is 1/2 of the width, and the colors are messed up) but it freeze after the intro. :\
Could you explain me how you made it work?
I'm using win xp pro, a p4 1.5ghz, 512mb pc-100.

To 'fix' the crash try this code on vba (cheat->cheat list->code):
030004A0:00

And nique, if you're still around, could you tell me on what world 3 lvl the game crashes ?
Also if anyone finds another crash in VBA, could you upload your save state (before the crash).

Edit : I fixed the bugs (intro, bad gameplay and crash) in the sourceforge's sources.

Nice!!

But you need to compile the source or something right? or i need to download a special version?? (newbie question hehe :p)

I tried to download the latest version (1.72 win) from sourceforge, but no changes at all, so that's why i'm wondering which one to download...

Also thanks for the cheat...

Yes, you can only get this fix by compiling the source which is in the sourceforge's CVS right now.
Maybe someone will do it in an 'unofficial' (or a new beta) version, but I won't do it myself for various reasons.
