    The nds-bootstrap bundled with TWiLight Menu++ only works from the console's SD card.
    nds-bootstrap for flashcards isn't out yet.

    There's instructions in the first post.

    v7.1.0: The true v7.0.0

    Check here on how to update TWiLight Menu++.
    Also, for DSi users with CFW, delete "53524c41" at "sd:/title/00030015", and replace "autoboot.bin" at "sd:/hiya" as well.
    In addition to the regular instructions, if you're a flashcard user, extract BOOT_fc.nds to the flashcard's SD root, make a copy, and rename that to boot.nds, and also update your flashcard's autoboot file.

    Includes nds-bootstrap v0.15.0.

    What's new?
    • Volume and battery indicators added to DSi, 3DS, and Acekard themes!
      For the Acekard theme, only the DS menu and Switch themes for the AK theme show the volume and battery (icons for AK themes added by @Epicpkmn11).
      Also, in DS mode, no volume icon will be shown, and instead of showing 4 battery bars, it'll show 2, and on DS Phat/Lite consoles, it'll be green instead of blue, to match the console's power LED light.
    • You can now have multiple saves for your games! Up to 10 .sav files can be used.
      To access the option, open up per-game settings.
    • The TWiLight Menu++ CIA is now shown on the 3DS HOME Menu.
      As a result, on next boot of the app, it will load faster, and the TWiLight Menu++ Launcher has been deprecated, as the next version of it will just be an updater.
    • If your on a Panda/Dev DSi unit or a 3DS/2DS, a game console select screen will be shown, if it's your first time using TWLMenu++.
    • A new animated icon for TWiLight Menu++ has been added! (made by @Vulpes-Vulpeos)
    • The alternative names (SRLoader and DSiMenu++) have been dropped to avoid confusion. (suggested by @NightYoshi370)
    • As the new nds-bootstrap release (v0.15.0) breaks compatibility with GBARunner2, the old hb bootstrap is still used to boot GBARunner2.
    • If you're running TWLMenu++ from a flashcard on DSi or 3DS/2DS, the HOME icon is now shown on the DSi/3DS theme, where you can touch it to return to system menu.
    Bug fix
    • Fixed not saving hb rom's bootstrap file (thanks to @Epicpkmn11).

    TWiLight Menu++ is getting closer and closer to being a perfect DSi Menu replacement! Thank you and many other devs for your hard work!

    Not an emulator.
    The only parts emulated are GBA (partially), GB(C) (GameYob), and NES (nesDS).
    The DS(i) part is native.

    Great work! I already use TWiLight Menu++ as my default launcher.
    I wonder if it's possible to add a launcharg file reflashing/auto generating feature for the installed dsiwares? And maybe a launcharg file auto deleting function if the dsiware is deleted? Now if the launcharg file exist but the dsiware is missing, TWiLight Menu++ will stop at the loading screen.

    Hello :)

    Update works great,loading times for TWiLight Menu/DSi/SD Nand are still fast(er).:yaynds:
    GBARunner works from DSi + TWiLight Menu,but in settings it shows still Bootstrap Ver.0.14.1.:unsure:
    I´ve also downloaded and copied the bootstrap files v0.15.0 but still the same.

    Thank you for this FAST (i mean it in all ways :bow:) Update.Really great work.:grog:

    The nds-bootstrap version file is fixed now. Re-download the latest TWiLight Menu++.

    I don't want to be seen as stupid or something, but does using Acekard 2i with this on DSi require some further preparation? I've tried my best to google my problem but I found nothing that helped. Slot-1 MicroSD card mode just doesn't want to boot games and throws Error 1 error at me.
    I'm running AKAIO 1.9 on it, if that helps

    You need nds-bootstrap for flashcards, which isn't out yet.

    Oh, I see, I thought that if I boot the console with HiyaCFW, I'd be able to use TwilightMenu and access my flashcart. Thanks!

    i think you need to be bit more clear.

    for a start do you have HiyaCFW on your DSi?

    I agree with Flame. You need to be more clear.

    Tried launching DSiWare .nds like it said in the instructions. But it still says "This game cannot be launched in DS mode"

    I've tried 4 most popular titles (Zelda 25, Minis March Again, WarioWare Twisted and Rayman). It's possible the dumps are bad (i've no idea where I got them), but icons do appear. I have Japanese DSi XL with 1.4J firmware. Should I update?

    Hmm, standard NDS games don't work either. One screen is black, other is white. (I'm using flashcard method)

    No. Just a flashcard (gateway blue, not sure what is it, but it launches menu through Deep Labyrinth game)

    By the way should I launch games through flashcard's SD or through DSi's SD? I currently don't have the latter.
