    @Robz8 I'm working on some patches, the testing is going on smoothly. I have a question, where does TwilightMenu++ take the boxart thumbnails? There are some missing I would like to add, for example, the single-EUR language Layton games. Thank you in advance!

    They come from GameTDB.

    Oh well, I'll look into it, the thumbnails should be there but for some reason aren't being detected.
    In the mean time, I will gladly add a highly requested patch I made in the afternoon, I need to do some things before I get home and can't wait to see this tested out by others.

    Here are sweeeet AP fix patches for:

    Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (U)
    Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective(E)


    Both versions fully work now, tested by me and a friend, just drag and drop the zip contents on SD:\_nds\TwiLightMenu\apfix
    I will make pull request on GitHub for the next ones, or would you like for me to upload them through here? @Robz8

    Please PR on GitHub. You can also edit the AP-patched game list.

    A Quick question @Robz8

    Seems that the following titles doesn't work despite having their AP patch added, I made all possible configuration tests:

    Atsumete! Kirby (Japan)
    Kirby Mass Attack (U)
    Kirby Mass Attack (E)
    Taiko no Tatsujin DS - Dororon! Yokai Daikessen!! (Japan) [This one specifically boots, but has sound channels missing and after name entry it kicks you back to the title screen]

    They do work on no$GBA though. Is that related to bootsrap? Every games has in common being compiled with SDK 5 (TWLSDK)

    EDIT: The patches for the kirby games exceed the max file size, and DS-Scene tool doesn't have patches for these yet (the ones I made my ips from are xdelta patches)

    EDIT 2: The prepatched kirby roms work fine.

    Attached is a patch for :
    Taiko no Tatsujin DS - Dororon! Yookai Daikessen!! (Japan) (BDEJ)

    Unpack and copy the .ips files to sdcard:\_nds\TWiLightMenu\apfix
    The rom tool can't handle encrypted arm9, hence why some games need to be patched with .xdelta's etc. instead of the rom tool.

    Those 2 games don't contain AP.

    @Robz8,
    I have also attached a text file with all current scene/private releases that contain AP.
    Also, these games need to have the AP message removed from TwiLight Menu as they don't contain AP.
    Daniel X - The Ultimate Power (USA) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (NDSi Enhanced)

    Puzzle Quest 2 (USA)
    Puzzle Quest 2 (Europe)

    @retrogamefan any chance to get the .ips for Pokemon: Edicion Negra 1 (Spain)? It seems that it isn't included on TWilight Menu yet.

    Also thank you so much for the endless effort you've put into this :D.

    @Robz8 Hi and thanks for all you do for the community! AP patching isn't working for me (tested on a few games including Spirit Tracks). I did a clean/manual install following your instructions. I've been using your program for years and it worked great when I manually patched IPS files. I'm using clean roms now. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

    Are you sure the ROMs aren't modified in any way, such as repacking?
    Also, is there an "apfix" folder containing the .ips files in "sd:/_nds/TWiLightMenu/"?
    If not, then that's why it's not working for you.

    @Robz8 I forgot to notify you, I have tried to solve the problem with the following games having their game covers missing:

    YLTS - Profesor Layton y la Caja de Pandora, El (Spain)
    C3JS - Profesor Layton y El Futuro Perdido, El (Spain)
    BLFS - Profesor Layton y La Llamada del Espectro, El (Spain)

    TwiLight Updater downloads them correctly as them are available in GameTDB, is TwiLightMenu itself that for some reason doesn't detect them correctly.

    AFAIK the issues in that game are related to bootstrap itself, so it wont work until a fix is made.

    AP question: is Bowser's Inside Story a problematic game, patch-wise? I'm guessing there would already be a patch for it in TM, considering how popular it is.
