    (Sorry if I should have posted this elsewhere, but I couldn't find any threads that would help.)

    I've been trying to get YSMenu on my DSTT for the better part of the day now, but I've been having some problems. Mostly:

    1. It shows me an icon saying MENU? whenever I boot up the DSTT,
    2. This is probably because changing .dat files to .nds files and vice-versa doesn't change anything but the file name,
    3. Not sure if this is a problem, but I didn't have any .bmp files in my download.

    Could someone please help? I just got an expansion pack, and would love to use it.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm trying to set YSMenu as my default.

    It brings me to the mediafire homepage, and says "You do not have any currently uploaded files." (I'm paraphrasing.)

    To install TTMenu and YSMenu for DSTT:[*]Make sure you have the newest version of YSMenu and TTMenu firmware.[*]Unzip the TTMenu archive. Place the "TTMENU" folder onto your microSD card.[*]Unzip the YSMenu archive.[*]Create a folder named "YSMenu" on your microSD card.[*]Place a copy of "TTMENU.DAT" from the official menu (or if you think you might have a fake, use the version that has the fake-killer code disabled) into the same folder as the "ttextract.exe" program on your PC. Run "ttextract.exe" on your PC. Place the two resulting files ("ttdldi.dat" and "ttpatch.dat") into the "YSMenu" folder on your microSD card.[*](a) If you want YSMenu to be your default menu, rename "TTMENU.DAT" from the official menu to "TTMenu.nds" and place it onto the root (top level) of your microSD card. Then place a copy of "YSMenu.nds" onto the root of your microSD card. Then make a copy of "YSMenu.nds" named "TTMENU.DAT" on the root of your microSD card. You should now have "TTMenu.nds", "YSMenu.nds", and "TTMENU.DAT" (a copy of "YSMenu.nds") on the root of your microSD card.
    (b) If you want TTMenu to be the default menu, place a copy of TTMENU.DAT from the official menu onto the root (top level) of your microSD card. Then place a copy of "YSMenu.nds" onto the root of your microSD card. Then make a copy of "TTMENU.DAT" named "TTMenu.nds" on the root of your card. You should now have "TTMENU.DAT", "YSMenu.nds", and "TTMenu.nds" (a copy of "TTMENU.DAT") on the root of your microSD card.[*]Optional: place the skin files "YSMenu1.bmp" and "YSMenu2.bmp" (these don't come with YSMenu) into the "YSMenu" folder.[*]Edit "YSMenu.ini". Place a semi-colon in front of the line that says "LITERALS=LITERALS_JPN". Remove the semi-colon from the line that says "LITERALS=LITERALS_ENG". Save your changes to "YSMenu.ini" and place it into the "YSMenu" folder on your microSD card.[*]Make a new folder named "games" and put a few .nds files in it. Always use the "safely remove hardware" utility before removing your microSD card from your PC. Place the DSTT into the NDS, place the microSD card into the DSTT, and turn on the NDS.That should be it. If you are using TTMenu as your default, simply run "YSMenu.nds" to get to YSMenu. Otherwise, it should launch directly into YSMenu and you can run "TTMenu.nds" to get back to TTMenu.

    When you're done, you should have the following files and folders on your microSD card:


    YSMenu.nds (YSMenu)
    TTMenu.nds (TTMenu)
    TTMENU.DAT (a copy of whichever of the above two you want as your default menu)

    YSMENU (YSMenu firmware folder)

    YSMenu.ini (YSMenu init file)
    ttdldi.dat (extracted from the official loader using ttextract.exe)
    ttpatch.dat (extracted from the official loader using ttextract.exe)
    YSMenu1.bmp (optional skin)
    YSMenu2.bmp (optional skin)

    TTMENU (official firmware folder)

    all the files from the official TTMENU folder are here

    games (games folder)

    your .nds files go here

    Alright, thanks to Hitcher, I got it to boot the YSMENU on startup (thanks!), but now there's another problem. My GBA games aren't saving, and if I try to write a NOR file, everything freezes. Can you guys help again? Or should this go somewhere else?
