    So are we expecting a new commit soon? Didn't @shutterbug2000 get Bowser's inside story and maybe others working..? Was that just a rumour?

    It's working, but only on NO$GBA. It's a false alarm.

    Oh? How can those two differ.. ? I thought the nds-bootstrap would work the same way on both actual systems and emulators.. ?

    It red-screens w some texttype thing. Would this not work better w a bigger game than MK as donor? Why is even MK the preferred option?

    NO$GBA doesn't have accurate hardware emulation.
    MK is preferred, because it uses a variant of SDK version 2 that's close to 3.

    datawhitelist = datainclude

    datainclude is for what data to be loaded into RAM.
    dataexclude is for what data to be excluded from the ROM, in order for the ROM to fit in RAM.
    The excluded data now loads in a cache space.

    Since the OP doesn't say anything about it, how well does this work on O3DS?

    It works the same as on N3DS, since this runs in NTR/TWL mode.

    Works the same as it does on n3ds. The real difference is between dsi & 3ds.

    It works just fine on O3DS,anything thats compatible gets decent fps.Only minimal lag on some games.

    Neat

    Here's hoping Etrian Odysssey III becomes functional in the future. It's the only EO-game which isn't available on the 3DS, so it hurts to have that gap.

    Compatibility is quite surprising, tested Rune Factory 3 on the unofficial version and it works with some lag and the occasional freeze but is otherwise playable.

    I would say around 10 seconds counting nds-bootstrap loading screen, not sure how this compares to it originally but I think it's pretty good.

    Just tested it and it's around 30 seconds counting the nds-bootstrap loading screen for RF3.

    RF2 is significantly faster but the loading screens still take a while.

    Oh, just forgot to mention there is quite a lot of noise in the background for 3

    ran into a problem last night with mario and luigi partners in time(u) the game ran fine until I tried to load my save the weird thing is it loaded fine earlier in the night but after I saved at the second save point in bowsers castle(past) the game no longer loads the save file it just black screens after selecting load file. I was using the latest build with mario kart set as donor rom.
