    i've found that blue gateway card has so-so compatibility mode for ds.

    so far the best result i achieved with ysmenu with retro game fan package (ds lite hardware). i'm just wondering if card supporting ysmenu exists for 3ds (i'm looking just for .nds support not .3ds)

    Update the Blue cartridge to Wood 1.62 instead. It's hard to get better compatibility than this.

    Yeah, the blue card is basically an R4i Gold 3DS cart. (basically)

    yep. compatibility is better with that hack than original blue software, but my saves from ysmenu are not recognized.

    It must be a file naming issue, because I can't see why they wouldn't be compatible. Wood has a setting responsible for save naming, which either preserves the NDS extension, or removes it. Either way, ROM to save relation should be:

    Code:
    Game Name:             Your ROM Name (U).nds
    Save Name:             Your ROM Name (U).sav
    Alternative Save Name: Your ROM Name (U).nds.sav

    Yeah when I switched from an r4i to the blue gateway, I had to rename all my saves for it to recognise them - but later I found the option in Wood's settings which would have meant I didn't have to.
