So I probably didn't hit my 10EA timer0 in my 10 tries.
I don't think I can mess up the chatters, especially with this seed, since there are very easily recognizable patterns in the first 30 frames. (high-high-low-high-high-low-low-high, for example)
Maybe I am messing up the actual button presses?
I hold them in the ds main menu, until the game is at the nintendo logo, anything wrong with that?
Btw, what do you do if you get a seed that requires holding down? The menu goes to pictochat with that >_>
