    I have the same issue, the only way I get it to work is to manually put the patch in the sysmodule folder of luma, but it stretches every game, even unsupported ones. I have tried to reinstall TWilightMenu but I can't seem to make it work like it is intended to.

    (if the screen still appears stretched, try creating a blank wideCheatData.bin in <sdcard>:\_nds\nds-bootstrap).
    also where did you place the cxi?

    The problem I have is playing supported games but in a specific language, where widescreen doesnt work, ie: Pokemon Heartgold (E)(Spanish),

    In sd:\luma\sysmodules\TwlBg.cxi

    This is the "normal" method to get patches working, but it should be supported from TwiLightMenu directly.

    But nevermind, I just found out that the updated Twilight menu must be installed manually, because updater can't grab it, I'll try and report back my result.

    How would I go about getting widescreen working with Drayano's Pokemon ROM Hacks? Or ROM Hacks in general?

    v9.0.4

    Check here on how to update TWiLight Menu++.
    Please do the manual method of updating, as the TWLMenu++ Updater is unable to update to this version properly.

    What's new?
    • Sanity checks have been added for widescreen launch.
      It checks if a custom `TwlBg.cxi` file in `sd:/luma/sysmodules` is backed up, if the wide cheat has been copied successfully, and if the Widescreen TwlBg file has been moved to `sd:/luma/sysmodules` successfully.
      If any of those fail, the game will play in 4:3.
    Bug fix
    • Minor fix to the file copy code.

    Hello.:)

    Thank you for the update.All runs perfect and smooth.:yaynds:

    By the way,since the last 2-3 Updates I have noticed,after making an In Game Reset (L+R+B+DOWN) it takes a long time to get back to TWiLight Menu.

    White Screen and then

    15 seconds on the DSi XL
    22 seconds on the blue DSi
    20 seconds on the red DSi

    I made also an "fresh" Install on all 3 devices.

    Do you have any Idea what maybe causes this ?

    Thank you.:)

    Every game I've tested including translated, ROM hacks and Japanese titles are all working in full screen with my Acekard 2i + N3DS XL. Thanks!

    Seems to be just an nds-bootstrap issue at this point.
    Try downloading the latest nds-bootstrap from here: https://github.com/ahezard/nds-bootstrap/releases

    I don't really recommend that.
    Try a full reinstall of TWiLight Menu++, but keep the "Widescreen.cxi".
    That didn't help. There was already a "wideCheatData.bin".

    Uninstall the TWiLight Menu++ titles from the title list, using FBI, and then delete the nds-bootstrap folder and files in `sd:/_nds`, and finally, delete `TWiLightMenu` in `sd:/_nds`.

    Please send the MD5 checksum of your `nds-bootstrap-release.nds` file, using http://onlinemd5.com
