    Hmmm... why, if I may ask? They work on slot1 cart on 3ds, what stops them from working from sd?
    Also, are you (or any1) still working on it to improve compatibility?

    Hey o/

    Sorry to disturb but it seems that my karma doesn't want to let me try everything I want :)
    yesterday it was citra, today it's the .jar for the forwarder.
    When I launch it, it just says "impossible to find main class" (sorry the text is not in english). I've tried the cmd command too. Nothing.
    Windows 10 64-bits, last java of course.

    Any help ? Thanks !

    I was able to fix my issue. (Turns out I was using the .ini from the pack for the 3DS SD rather than the one for my flashcard.) Though, would it be possible to move the flashcard ntr_forwarder.ini to the _nds folder instead of "nds"?

    Can anyone tell me if my M3i Zero card is compatible? The website says its compatible with 3DS but I don't see it on the list under not compatible with this forwarder program...

    Sorry to bump this so fastly but I'd like an idea / solution soon because i'll not able to try it before at least 15 days, so I'd like to finish my Pokemon game collection before that.
    I've tried many versions of java, nothing. Is there any file i've missed ?
    Just have the .jar on my folder.
    Thanks!

    Edit : got it to work... Yep don't ask me how, it'll be a mystery... For me too.

    I get white screen on DSi Enhanced games when forwarding from a r4ids.cn. It shows Loading... and after 10 seconds just freezes.
    simple DS games work
    I do have UseLatestWood to 1 although Im using R4I Gold 3DS
    and now PKMN B/W 2 hangs on red Loading :/
    Tried to AP patch it with a clean rom manually and tried 3 different pre-patched roms

    Hi.

    So after I've followed your tutorial, I launched a NDS game and it booted into ROM selection screen.

    I checked the path and it was correct.
    ROM path: flashcard root/roms/KSS.nds (I put flashcard root in to make it a bit clearer)
    3DS Forwarder ROM path: roms/KSS.nds (Automatically set ROM path was checked)

    So I read some more and did the following:
    - Deleted YSMenu.ini in TTMenu and _dsttfwd folders
    - Checked the YSMenu.ini: YSMenu.ini in TTMenu is completely blank, while the _dsttfwd one (attached, changed to .txt) has:

    [YSMENU]
    AUTO_BOOT=/roms/KSS.nds (followed by a bunch of blank space in Notepad or (NUL) in Notepad++)
    DEFAULT_DMA=true
    DEFAULT_RESET=false (with a (NUL) in Notepad++ at the end)

    Still booted to ROM selection screen.

    My flashcard is a R4i-SDHC 3DS RTS and I used the "for Slot-1 microSD (R4i-SDHC RTS)"

    Please help.
    Thank you.

    I have the R4I Gold 3DS form r4ids.cn.
    When I use the R4i Gold RTS pack, everything works but DSi Enhanced games.
    When I use the R4i Gold pack, nothing works. Everything is blank.
    Edit: Merged the latest R4i Gold (non-rts) Wood firmware from r4ids.cn with your R4i Gold RTS pack and everything works perfectly :D (Except PKMN B/W2 which still hangs at read Loading text even with AP patch)

    I have a DSTT card with roms I dumped from Decrypt9. I'm on Luma3DS CFW with A9LH. No matter what I try, I get a white screen upon launching the forwarder (I can launch using the DSTT forwarder from ApacheThunder just fine).
    Screenshots

    I install the generated .cias with FBI. What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks in advance!
