    Support for your flashcard is currently broken.

    I've gotta say. It plays extremely well for 2D games. But not so well on 3D games. Super Princess Peach runs almost perfectly with only a few minor graphical bugs and some sound crackles. Super Mario 64 DS on the other hand has a lot of slowdown issues and plenty of crackles in the sound. I'm not really sure if this is fixed since I am using a slightly older version of TWLoader. Keep up the good work.

    I downgrade to 4.1.0 version to use my R4i SDHC 3DS RTS but I can only start one game. If I start another game I got white screen.

    Thanks @Robz8 (and other people involved) for this amazing tool, because with this I achieved something almost impossible: finally I could revive two fullbricked flashcards (both from http://r4igold.cc/product.asp), using the FC Loader tools on TWLoader latest version. :grog: Sometime on the past even I thougth about throwing them away, but now they're perfectlly working again! Thank you so much! :toot::yay3ds::bow:

    Try again. If you still get white screen, turn on console output.

    Here's some games you can add to the working/non-working list.

    NOTE: Some white screens may be due to lack of WIFI or a failure to connect to it for some odd reason. As any of the distribution roms that need WIFI will ALWAYS go white if there is no WIFI.

    NTR-AAQE-USA - Pokemon Toys R US Darkrai - Cannot boot. (White Screen)
    NTR-AARE-USA - Pokemon GameStop Deoxys - Boots with corrupted bottom screen graphics.
    NTR-Y5XP-EUR - Pokemon Movie 11 Shaymin - Boots with corrupted bottom screen graphics.
    NTR-Y6XE-USA - Pokemon Toys R Us Arceus - Cannot boot. (White Screen)
    NTR-Y7YE-USA - Pokemon GameStop Jirachi & Shiny Pichu - Cannot boot. (White Screen)
    NTR-Y8CE-USA - Pokemon Winter 2011 Celebi - Cannot boot. (White Screen)
    NTR-Y8CP-EUR - Pokemon Winter 2011 Celebi - Cannot boot. (White Screen)
    NTR-Y8KP-EUR - Pokemon Liberty Pass - Cannot boot. (White Screen)
    NTR-Y8PE-USA - Pokemon GameStop Shiny Legendary Beasts - Cannot boot. (White Screen)
    NTR-Y9JZ-USA - Pokemon GameStop Summer 2012 Keldeo - Cannot boot. (White Screen)
    NTR-Y9OZ-EUR - Pokemon Summer 2013 Shiny Sinnoh Trio - Cannot boot. (White Screen)
    NTR-Y58E-USA - Pokemon Toys R Us Secret Key - Cannot boot. (White Screen)

    So here's a new branch with some stuff I started a while back and then promptly forgot about:
    https://github.com/GerbilSoft/TWLoader/tree/bugfix/sfillib-fixes.remove-wchar_t

    Main changes:
    • Removed grayscale PNG fixes. I've submitted these fixes, along with a fix for JPEGs being off-by-one scanline, upstream: https://github.com/xerpi/sfillib/pull/4
    • Removed most of the wstring changes I added before. SFTD's 8-bit text support was limited to ANSI. The new Citro-based text renderer handles UTF-8 directly, so we don't need to use wide strings.
    • New function measureTextWidth(). Based on renderText(), this measures the width of a string. SFTD had a function for this before, and I previously used it to center-align text. I updated everything to use measureTextWidth() to center text again.
    • Other fixes.
    This won't be ready for merging until upstream SFIL merges my bugfix branch.

    Except it might take a long while until it's merged.
    Last commit was in Aug 2, 2016.

    If all else fails, I guess I could always pull in a full copy of SFIL, so we wouldn't depend on it at all.

    EDIT: The branch was merged, so update your local copy of SFIL to get the changes.

    Tell @ahezard that. I only developed the frontend of the ROM loader.

    Can this make Pokémon NDS games be fully playable on the 3ds?

    You can use this to run ROMs from flashcard. That includes Pokémon.
    Sadly, the mainstream Pokémon games don't work yet from SD card. Only Pokémon Trozei/Link and the Mystery Dungeon games work from SD card.
    The backend of TWLoader which does the SD ROM loading, known as nds-bootstrap (developed by ahezard), will be worked on again soon.
