    He meant bootstrap, not TWLoader. You can find your bootstrap version in the settings. ;)

    Do the games that are run off the flashcart show up in the activity log?

    All games launched through TWLoader, whether they're on a flashcard or the SD card, are not shown in the activity log.
    If you want your games to show up in the activity log, use the forwarders: https://gbatemp.net/threads/nds-forwarder-cias-for-your-home-menu.426174/

    That is because nds-bootstrap is closer to a gba slot flash cart (m3 perfect, etc) rather than your r4. In fact, much of the commercial game support is (or at least was) based, somewhat loosely, on the Max Overload software which let you run commercial roms on the Max Media Dock (a a gba slot to CF/IDE adapter) and always had compatibility problems. In fact the whole donor rom thing was originally known as the MaxCrass Method.

    A little update on my efforts to run Death Jr., tried playing Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky (needs MKDS as donor) and got the same error I got on Death Jr.. Apparently, my MKDS ROM was corrupted, got a new one and now it works. So Death Jr. should be added on the list of supported games, it only needs MKDS donor for save data to run and it runs without any issues at all (at third level now and no framedrops/spikes or anything), but loading screens can take a while. Same thing for both the EU and US versions. Also tested Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days out of curiosity and instead of white screens (like it says in the support sheet) I got red top, white bottom...

    Hi,

    When trying to play multiplayer on Mario Kart DS using TWLoader, the game will freeze at some point.
    Here is a little video :


    Is there anything that can be done so that it doesn't freeze like patching the rom or something ?

    What I tried :
    Using an older version of nds-bootstrap : It was even worse it would disconnect because the loading time is too long.
    Using differant roms (JP and KR version) still freezes.
    It does that on 3 different consoles with different specs (All B9S Luma, but one a small 3DS with 8GB Class 4 uSD, one 3DS XL with 64GB Class 10 uSD and a 2DS with original 4GB Class 4 SD.) I don't have any "New" models to test if it does the same.
    Even if the multi is against only consoles with TWLoader and no original cart/flashcart, it still freezes.
    Also when using TWLoader rom hosting in "simple" mode, the DSes that download play get frozen on Nintendo logo. DSes with flasme freezes on a white screen just after the nintendo logo fades out.

    Any ways of making this work ?
    Thanks for any ideas.

    Read the comment in the supported games sheet, you need to patch the ROM. EUR version works just fine btw and is what I've been playing.

    The patch they talk about if to play online with wiimmfi. The rom I used is actually patched with that (But I tried with unpatched ones too just to be sure if it wasn't the online patch that made it freeze but nope it changed nothing). But that is just for online, not for local multiplayer.

    You'll have to deal with it, 'til it gets improved.
    It's because quick start is on. Try turning it off, then reboot, and try again.
