Question about a GameCube game
Is there a better GameCube Mr Driller game or should I buy this one?
It does work with Freeloader... it's just the game refuses to save to anything apart from a "genuinely formatted on Japanese hardware" memory card...
Pac-Man (Level 10)
Every game I have does the same thing. If I have been playing JPN games then try to save a US game it says I need to have a properly formatted memory card. I don't use the freeloader so I'm no help there!

So in conclusion... one card for Japanese saves, one card for US/PAL saves...
As for Mr Driller, it won't even save on a non-Japanese Cube through Freeloader onto a Japanese memory card. It HAS to be a Japanese Cube the game is running on. The ultimate way to prevent all importing there...
