    Thank you!

    I'm a bit late to the DS Flashcart community, but it's proving invaluable for a current project.

    Are you downloading from the Filetrip mirror? dstwo.nds is right there:

    Could someone link this to somewhere other than filetrip? also is it possible to hide folders whilst your in a certain category that you select like Games, etc.

    Is this the best menu to use then? I wish it would save the last place I was at when i power off the ds like the original theme does.

    This menu has been discontinued for a while, BAGPlug may be a better choice.

    Why you are so surprised? Your homebrew was always very very good but i think that for an unknown reason you never wont to polish it to let perfect. It was like you bored to early.
    I appreciate all your homebrew. Thanks again for they

    I sure get bored with projects quite early. Once they work good enough for me to use myself, then I loose motivation to finish them.

    The answer to your question is that I still use it (although I also don't play on my DS as much as I use to)...and not just because out of loyalty either (IIRC - I was one of your v3 beta testers :wink: ).
    Despite the small quirks that it has (having to make your own shortcuts for each game) I still prefer this over bagplug...

    Even if you do get bored with your projects perhaps you could release the source code (with certain conditions maybe something like 'Must state 'original coding by Spinal_cord.. adapted by xxxxx' ) & let some1 else take up the challenge of 'improving' it. Such as when you start to create a shortcut - iMenu will automatically use the built in game Icon instead of us having to select an icon.

    Not a bad idea...

    There you go. Anyone who wants to continue this project may do so, but understand this, 1. My code isn't usually very tidy, so might not be very readable. 2. It's been a long time since I even looked at this, I doubt I could offer any help regarding it. 3. I'm not 100% sure that this is the latest version, but it was the latest one I could find on my hard drive.

    I'm interested in this iMenu. It looks really nice. Is it still being supported?

    No, what you see is what you get.

    Although IF some OTHER programmer like to take over the project. I believe the developer has released the code as open source

    Why not add a link to the source download in the first post, someone might see it :) (see post #570).

    Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but since updating my 3DS with the latest firmware I'm seeing the 'DSTwo Loading, Enjoy Yourself, All Pleasure In It' screen whenever it is loading as I'm switching to the DS Games menu. I've looked everywhere on the microSD card to try to find where that image is stored (so I can change it) but can't locate it. All of the other images from my iMenu and DSTwo skin are updated, just not this one. It's not a big deal but if I can change it I'd like to.

    Does anyone know where on the memory card this image is stored? Thanks!!

    I found the answer to my question (it was in the OP of the DSTwo Skin thread but the link to the file is no longer there).

    To change the DSTwo Loading or Boot Screen, I used this file from the supercard forum, along with this image saved as a bmp:

    Just posting in case anyone else runs into this issue.

    I have my DSTWO set to autoboot imenu, and I'm having trouble getting rom loading working right. I can load a rom, but when I try to go back, it takes me to the DSGame menu and won't let me exit. Also I can't get my icons to show up right.
