    I'm trying to run the supercard software in linux using wine, but when i click the out button i get an error saying "open file error" and only a .sav file is outputted in the target directory.

    Is there any way to patch roms for use on the supercard without this software or any other solution?

    On that note, are there any MS-DOS based NDS tools available? I know this sounds kinda old-school but DOSBOX is a godsend for *nix based OSes.

    What Version of Wine are you using? Supercard software 2.57 works for me with Wine 0.9.22 from the Ubuntu/Debian repositories.

    Besides the obsolete NDSPatch I don't know of any DOS-based NDS cartridge access patching utils.

    The open file error means that you arent directing the software to send the new files to a specified directory folder. You can get the same error in Windows as well, I know cause I had the same problem. If the specified directory doesnt exist on your hard drive, than you need to create it in that location or point it to a folder where all your games are stored.

    I'm using wine 0.9.24 and it works when I first install it perfectly fine. But when I close it and open it again i get "Read ini file error" when the program loads and then get the "open file error" when trying to load games.
    I have the output directory set up properly but it probably has something to do with the ini error. I checked and there doesnt seem to be any change in files in the installation directory and no change in the registry

    Change to the patcher directory first, then run the patcher.

    I run like this:
    cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/SC
    wine SuperCardmicrosd.exe

    I'm fairly certain this is your problem.
