    Just a follow up, clean install fixed both the touch screen issue and the cheat issue.

    v9.1.0: Wii AP-patch, so U don't have to!

    Check here on how to update TWiLight Menu++.
    It is safe to update to this version using TWiLight Menu++ Updater.

    Includes nds-bootstrap v0.23.0.

    What's new?
    • AP-patches (up to 99, list here) are now included, so you no longer need to manually AP-patch some of your ROMs.
      If the ROM you launch, includes an AP-patch in TWLMenu++, the AP message isn't shown.
      (May still show in the Acekard theme.)
      AP-patches are applied on-the-fly by nds-bootstrap, so your ROMs will stay clean!
    • Number of supported ROMs for widescreen has been increased from 202 -> 358!
    • GBARunner2 has been updated to this build.
    • DSi/3DS/Saturn theme: Box art paths are no longer stored in memory when loading the ROM list. Speeds up loading the ROM list.
    • DSi/3DS/Saturn theme: ???
    • Settings: Acekard theme is now marked as `Buggy!`
    You no longer need to hold L for the following game to work
    • Bakugan: Battle Brawlers

    Great progress, once again! Small suggestion: Offer "Games supported with widescreen.txt" as a separate file on github, for those who use the updater. It took me a while to realize that the updated list can be found there. Also "AP-patched games.txt"

    Just noticed this while updating my DSi. Would it be possible to move the widescreen folder from "TWiLightMenu.7z/_nds/TWiLightMenu/" to "TWiLightMenu.7z/3DS - CFW users/_nds/TWiLightMenu/"?
    I mean, those files are only used on 3DS-systems. Also, you don't even have to change any documentation, since the wiki just says to copy all files in 3DS - CFW users to the root of the SD.

    Robz8, would you want to add even more AP patches? I've a list of alternative AP patches on my github due Rudolph/RetroGameFan not working with most of my ROMs (ROMs verified with no-intro.org). (tho it also has some of their AP). Also different regions have different APs too

    I have tested the AP patching feature on Profesor Layton: El Futuro Perdido (SPA) (EUR) and everything works fine except the cinematic videos, they have no sound.

    EDIT: It now freezes on the Mystery Screen.

    The patch for the SPA version isn't included.

    Weird, since it recognizes the EUR patch and applies it for some reason, because before the update the game never booted up. I will test with a proper patch if I find one. Thank you very much!

    Hey Robz8, 3 question, how come the cheats aren't working on other themes other than acekard theme? which by the way is supposed to be buggy? for example dragon quest V only works with the cheat enabled via acekard theme

    so i see there is some AP patches included, i updated to the new twilightmenu++ and it seems even with the ap patches dragon quest V still isnt playable with the ""forever on boat"" protection, i also tried Golden Sun Dark Dawn, and it still has a black screen, has there been any work around for that precious game?? thanks!

    What region is your Dragon Quest V ROM?
    Only the patch for the USA version is currently included.

    i use the (US) version, for both golden sun dark dawn and dragon quest V, fully copied the new twilightmenu+ update which included ap patches and more stuff, replaced folder with the 3ds CFW and 3DS sd card users, installed both cia files.

    Upload your "nds-bootstrap.ini" file, after launching Dragon Quest V.

    v9.1.2: YABFR

    Yet another bug fix release. :P

    Check here on how to update TWiLight Menu++.
    It is safe to update to this version using TWiLight Menu++ Updater.

    What's new?
    • If nds-bootstrap isn't found, TWLMenu++ now shows which build isn't found.
    • Added AP-patch for Gyakuten Kenji 2 (Japan).
    Bug fix
    • If Bootstrap is set to Release in TWLMenu++ settings, launching a game will no longer boot the Nightly nds-bootstrap build, and vice-versa.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    @Neoma Can you try TWLMenu++ v9.1.2?
    The previous version was trying to boot a nightly of nds-bootstrap, instead of a release version, or a release, instead of the nightly version.
    It's possible either of those might be out of date.

    Yes, the on-the-fly patches will work with trimmed ROMs.

    Golden Sun Dark Dawn (EUR) clean dump is not working for me. Furthermore, games sometimes boot, sometimes don't and I have to restart my 2DS in order to make a game to run (although it is random, as I said)
