    Has anyone actually ever got the Default.nds to autorun? I have tried putting into root, a TF directory, _system_ directory.

    damned if I can figure it out [​IMG]

    He tries to open a NDS-file when starting the R4.

    Do you use the newest kernel? As it should work when you put default.nds in the root...

    Yeah I tried (v1.11) adding an nds named default.nds to root and it just boots to the menu.

    from the R4DS website

    "Default.nds file runs automatically under TF directory, it maybe temporarily hidden in the main menu while pressing B key to turn DsLite on; Pressing X key to delete this file if there is unneccessary to have it run automatically."

    are your File extensions turned on so you can see them

    try default as the name

    DONT add the .nds to file name

    default.nds.nds

    One (stupid) suggestion: you aren't pressing B while turning on the DS, right? Otherwise I don't know [​IMG]

    I renamed the NDS from DSOrganise browser. and I also tried from in windows (with view extensions turned on) it just ignores the bootup default.nds and goes to the normal menu, has anyone actually tried this themselves and got it working?

    I wish R4 had settings.

    I would like to see a Most Recent button on the main menu.

    Try renaming it all in UPPERCASE?

    Ahh I thought I had already tried that, thanks.

    Anyway it doesn't do what I expected, I thought it would boot straight into the ROM, what it does is load the menu first and then start the ROM.

    I was hoping it would make the cart act like an original [​IMG]

    I just tried renaming one with DSO and copying it to the root, then restarting the R4. It worked fine.

    DSO does rename in uppercase, so you might have to do that.

    I thought I was the only person who wanted a "Most Recent" menu. [​IMG]

    Yeah the R4 has a bit of a lacking interface but at least it works.

    BTW MisterNero I noticed your sig, does SNEmulDS work fine without a slot-2 expansion? Are any games unplayable?

    Slot-2 only runs fine, it's just that some areas of games might be a little slower.
