    Try holding L (if you're not on the Acekard theme) after pressing the button to launch Explorers of Sky.

    I see it's in the release notes. "If you notice some games not working after installing this version, hold L after pressing A/START to launch the game." I'd still be curious about the backend though if anyone is knowledgeable!

    Holding L tells nds-bootstrap to not load the arm9 side of cardEngine into cached memory, and instead, is loaded into non-cached memory.
    In order for ce9 to be loaded into cached memory, the game's heap size has to be shrunk, which breaks some games.

    I have updated the updater to latest version all works great only issue is I think you forgot to change the version number in the app as it is still showing 3.1.0 rather than 3.1.1. Not that that really effects anything lol

    I did change it, but the app itself is still showing the old version for some reason.

    Launch the game then immediately hold "L" on your DS (right after you press A/Start to launch)

    Dammit, I hate how this site works sometimes, I didn't see further replies after this post.

    What does this show up as under Activity Log in 3DS? Does each DS game show up as its own entry under Activity log?

    This shows up as TWLMenu++.
    You need to install forwarders for the games to show up in the Activity Log.

    I'm trying to play City Life DS (SDK version 4) on my Old 3DS XL and no matter what settings I try it loads with a grey top screen and a black bottom screen saying "NO TEXT", and when I tap the screen theres this pattern on the bottom screen. No music whatsoever. My brother has a New 3DS XL with an old version of TWLoader and can play it no problem

    Crash of the Titans (EU) stopped working for me when I updated to 8.0.0. It stays in the loading screen for a couple of minutes, loading really slow, only to get stuck on a white screen. Holding L when launching the game did not help.

    Weird, I havent changed anything. All I did was update Twilight Menu and nds-bootstrap. I updated using the 3ds updater, maybe something went wrong?
    I'll try now a full reinstall to see if it fixes it. Thanks c:

    Hello Robz8 I have another problem I wiped my sd card and have a save back from when I started asking questions and that's it, so I thought I would reinstall hiyacfw for the latest features but now it says "An error has occurred" It goes white for a few seconds then says that message, don't worry I can still open my launcher and stuff but hiyacfw is the only thing having a problem I'll try to run some ds games but idk if they'll work sorry to be a bother but can you come to the rescue and help again?

    P.S I stopped on my ds because I started hacking my 3ds

    Edit : Twilight Menu ++ doesn’t work but it does show the cool new mini vid. Also I said everything was fine because I just have a hot key for the only dsiware game I play but I do like emulators and they don’t work properly unless I use Twilight Menu

    Is there any hope for the ability to use YSmenu instead of nds-bootstrap when running Twilight Menu from a flashcart?

    Specifically, the flashcart pictured in the image attached.

    I believe it is a DSTT clone and is very lenient when it comes to which firmware it runs. I have managed to run DScovered, Menudo, and YSmenu as the primary firmware but they are all very buggy/limited compared to Twilight Menu so this would be the idea solution. I believe I read somewhere that previous versions of Twilight Menu were compatible with YSmenu?

    If you're on the Acekard theme, then holding L won't work.

    EDIT: Works fine for me without holding L.
    What version of TWLMenu++ are you on?
    If it's v8.0.0, and the nds-bootstrap version is v0.18.0, try holding L after pressing the launch button.

    EDIT: Works fine for me on those versions, without holding L.

    I uptaded from a very old version (september 2018 i think) and now when i press the white arrow in the lower right corner I get stuck on a white screen.

    I disabled the ds like main menu and now i get stuck after the boot.
