    Hi guys, almost everything working here with Ak2i, but when I launch "add games" menu, it shows 3ds' SD card files instead of the flashcard ones... any advices?

    I believe this was posted a few pages back but it's a known thing and iirc it can be fixed by using an old firmware of the ak2i. Which one I don't remember lol.

    You have to get the "_nds" folder from the "flashcardsdroot" folder for all cards, in the TWLoader.7z file, and place that in the flashcard's SD root.

    Sorry, I don't know why this happens. :(

    So it wasn't because of this. "The akmenu4.nds file TWLoader uses, thinks that SD access is disabled.
    I'll have to force it to think that it's enabled, but that also means that it can't be used as a normal flashcard either."

    As a workaround I copied the roms to my 3DS' SD and added them from there. After that, I edited by hand the .ini files created with the correct path pointing the roms in the flashcard SD this time.
    It's not the ideal, but the forwarders worked just fine following this.

    How should I edit the path if I want to point to flashcard sd: roms/nds?

    By default the .ini file is like this:

    [FLASHCARD-ROM]
    NDS_PATH = roms/nds/1000 - Hotel Dusk - Room 215 (E)(Supremacy).nds
    TID = AWIP01

    Thank you!

    I'm on a trip and not with my 3DS in hands, so I can't check it for a few more days :(
    But if your .nds file is on roms/nds/*rom name* at the flashcard, that already seems like the right path
    Could you help with this, @Robz8?

    It looks just fine, but since it's an Acekard 2i, it probably won't work.

    What did the .ini originally look like?

    I didn't need to modify the .ini.

    I put the rom on the same path in the SD card and in the flashcard, (/ROMs/NDS) then I added the games through the menu and finally deleted the SD games.

    It works but I can only add one at a time, after that it freezes and I have to restart twloader.

    I'm using a flashcard, is it possible to have the games i have on there show up on the home menu?

    I press start and have it set to add games on the home menu but when it loads it just says menu with a question mark in red

    Did you extract both the "flashcardsdroot" folders to the flashcard SD root?

    The only folders I have on the root of the flashcard sd card are moonmemo,moonshl2, and R4iMenu

    In TWLoader.7z, extract the folder in "flashcardsdroot (all)" to your flashcard's microSD card, then extract the files/folders in "other flashcardsdrootfolder/for Slot-1 microSD (Self-explanitory flashcard name)" to your flashcard's microSD card.
