    You'll need an untrimmed ROM.

    Look at the ROM's filesize. If it's the following sizes:
    Then it's untrimmed.

    Since you said "latest build", it's unofficial bootstrap you're using, right?

    latest unofficial has fixed the loading save issue with mario and luigi partners in time but now there is lag spikes when moving areas and random freezes.

    Because you were not a really nice guy this year. You should not receive stuff for Christmas, sadly.

    Something strange... Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow EUR works, but not translated version (Save error and glitching sound).

    probably the translation adds some unsupported code, anyway, the US and EUR versions work perfectly.

    A patch for the thumb version of the cardId function.
    No effect without other thumb patches, though.

    Thanks for your answer. For me it means that it's another step for big enhancements in the future!
    Good luck, Robz8!

    hi I am not sure if this is the right tread to ask this, but i was wondering if it would be possible to add wireless compatibility to the nds bootstrap file. because whenever i try to use wireless on Pokemon games it is unable to connect, and then when i go back to the main pokemon game it boots up to a red screen. I am not sure if this is a problem with nds bootstrap or Twloader. And when i use ds download play it does the same thing. Also i am wondering if a red screen fix is possible, because also when i load mario and luigi bowser's inside story it boots to a red screen and the game is exactly the same size as pokemon heart gold witch boot completely fine with no red screen. So in the wondering i am just wondering if a red screen fix is possible.
