    Make sure you're using 5.5.1, which is the latest version of TWLoader.
    Also, if the "Force-use" setting isn't appearing by touching "Use set donor ROM" on the touch screen, try pressing A on the option.

    Sorry for the mix-up, it still black screens when 'force-use' is selected and mkds is set as a donor rom. I'm using latest twloader. I manually replaced the nds bootstrap though, so could that be causing any problems?

    What region is your Electroplankton ROM?

    As said in the compatibility list, no, they don't work.

    Try updating bootstrap through TWLoader.
    If that doesn't fix the black screen issue, try formatting your SD card to FAT32 with 32kb cluster/allocation size.

    Well then, if it isn't yet, try formatting your SD card to FAT32 with 32kb cluster/allocation size.

    It's only electroplankton that is playing up for me out of the games I've tested so far. I'll give that a go. Thanks for your help

    Does anyone know when a new update will happen and more games will be compatible or is stuff like that random. I really want to play kingdom Hearts 358/2 days but it gets stuck On white screen or a red screen pops up.

    Also when I do play games that are compatible, my speakers make like a popping sound like an audio malfunction it might just be my system though. Any solutions to the popping or is it my system?

    the developers are working hard to make more games compatible, if you want to stay up to date on the progress being made, bookmark the next page:
    https://github.com/ahezard/nds-bootstrap/releases
    on the audio issue, sometimes you can fix that by going to the settings inside the game and changing the audio settings from surround to stereo.

    Sounds like you're using an outdated version of nds-bootstrap (the actual SD ROM loader).
    Try updating both bootstraps, and surround will no longer cause any popping/crackling.

    Just a quick question, does TWLoader allow for DS connectivity? For example, can I trade from a pokemon rom on TWloader to a legit DS pokemon game on another (Non-CFW) console?
