    Ahh, about time. TC was going to be the next place I browsed, so I would have spotted this in a bit anyway, but thanks for the heads-up.

    That list of fixed games looks a little slim though. Better than nothing I guess.

    Yeah, don't know what that's about.

    Weren't there quite a few MORE games that needed a fix besides just those?

    Relating to FW 2.2 Stable: Known Bugs: Firmware 2.2. There are a few games there, but some were actually more DSi mode related + the newest releases of course.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Just some game fixes? For a BETA firmware?
    Usually some enhanced functionality warrants BETA status, not game fixes.

    That is the way TC goes. Usually they make quite a few BETA releases before compiling it into a new "Stable" build. This can be seen for example in the filetrip.net CycloDS Evo firmware "version history". Nothing really new in those terms, the new GUI was just something that was more a Beta feature than actual game fixes [​IMG]

    Game fixes was always released as (along with) beta, even before the New GUI "B" series.

    The main feature introduced in the B series, and now release as 2.2, is the game menu in the GUI.
    The menu for each games (in the bottom left) allowing :
    - Manage multiple saves per game (save slot), Select save size, and enable RTS
    - view game information
    - Cheat selections
    - Files management (copy/move/delete)
    - Set the game as Favorites (the 14 favorites are shown on the first screen for quick launch).

    This is not a big change in the GUI structure, just a new menu and older theme files are compatible with the new GUI.
