    I formatted the microSD, but it will not work. I replaced the _nds with the one from the latest release of TWLoader, and the CIA of TWLoader worked, but not the forwarder. I just get a white screen.

    EDIT: I tested TWLoader and it worked, then I replaced TWLoader with the forwarder _nds, but it didn't work

    @Robz8 , TY!! I recreated the forwarder CIAs and made sure to make the rom paths set to sd:/roms/nds/rom name here.nds and it takes a while to load the rom, but it works now!

    @Robz8 , Is it possible to use the Forwarder and normal TWLoader. I know they both use the _nds folder, so if I merge the _nds from the Forwarder and the _nds from TWLoader, will it allow me to use TWLoader, and Forwarders?

    So which .ini files do I use? The ones included with the Forwarder OR the ones included with TWLoader?

    You don't need bootstrap's .nds and .ini files. TWLoader downloads them, if they don't exist.

    So, what should the _nds folder have in it?

    ntr_forwarder.ini, and hb-bootstrap.nds is all you need.

    I'm sorry for being a NOOB! So... In the _nds folder, all I need is the ntr_forwarder.ini and hb-bootstrap.nds to run TWLoader. Then I can close TWLoader and still use the Forwarder for the ROMs I have?

    I meant for forwarders. You don't need ntr_forwarder.ini for TWLoader.

    OK, so basically all I want to be able to do is to use a Forwarder AND use the TWLoader CIA without removing changing the _nds files

    Next version of TWLoader will need hb-bootstrap.nds to run homebrew, and currently, forwarders use that for homebrew.
    For forwarders, ntr_forwarder.ini is needed in the _nds folder.

    SO Can I just put the Latest TWLoader files into _nds and replace the release-bootstrap with the one from the Forwarder? Will that allow TWLoader and the Forwarder to work?

    Yes, except you don't need to replace release-bootstrap. Forwarders can use TWLoader's release-bootstrap just fine, and both are the same.
