    Hi people, I hope someone can help.

    I followed Plailect' awesome guide on an O3ds, and it works absolutely perfectly for 3ds games. However I'm having trouble launching my gateway bluecard for NDS games. Every time I launch the card I get a blank screen.

    I have installed the bluecardfix.cia, as recommended elsewhere but still the same issue. Am I missing something blatantly obvious? Or is launching this cart just impossible?

    Do you have patched TWL_FIRM installed?

    luma patches the twl_firm by default, it shouldn't be necessary to do that.

    Oh, right ok. I forgot about that feature, may be just something to do with GW its self?

    The cart works fine in a 3DS XL. As for if I have TWL_FIRM installed, most likely not as can not see it in the guide I followed.

    Are you sure that all the right files are on your micro sd card for the blue card? When I changed to Luma3DS my blue card worked perfect the first try.

    Positive, as I say the cart works fine on a 3dsXL, just not in the o3ds.

    Apologies, I must have missed that when I read it. It's weird that it works in your 3dsxl but not your o3ds. Probably some patches not correctly applied..

    I know, but I was having problems launching titles that needed TWL patches before, and upgrading to the latest unofficial build fixed it. It was merely a suggestion, based on prior experience. There is certainly no need for all caps, bolded text, and italics to correct me.

    Since you're able to see the card and launch it from the Home Menu, try launching an installed DSiWare from Luma3DS. If you can launch the DSiWare, then the issue isn't with Luma3DS but the blue card.

    Are you sure that you have all of the right files on the microSD of the blue card? Is the microSD formatted to FAT32?

    Do you use a boot manager? (BootCtr9 or CtrBootManager9)?
    If so, you need to change your path. You can find out how in Luma's wiki

    Any idea as to what this could possibly be?

    Not that I'm aware of, again can see no reference to this in Plailects guide.

    Same problem with a DSIware title installed via a CIA.

    Installed the TWL and AGB cia and now all is perfect.

    @proflayton123 you were correct.
