    How would one be able to set a game to automatically start when one starts a DSTT?

    My guess is that like firmware you can change the game name to TTMenu.dat and place it in the root and it should boot. Although I haven't tested this yet I'm not very sure it would work.

    As a matter of fact, it does not.

    Just tried it with Club House Games and was treated to two white screens.

    DSTT can't autoboot commercial roms since it starts up in what you could call "homebrew mode" to be completely non-technical. In other words, dldi-patched homebrew will autoboot (at least a variety of them will), but if it isn't, the homebrew probably won't load correctly (auto dldi-patching isn't going to work if you don't go through the DSTT menu or YSMenu).

    An alternative option to having a commercial game autobooting would be to use ysmenu as it has a feature to autoboot an nds file, commercial or otherwise.

    Yeh YSMenu has auto boot, but it still has to load. if you have the same idea as me, about auto loading rom + 10$ flash cart + Ebay = $$$, Don't. Lol its wrong >.
