    either im just dumb or i cant read, but does Twilight Menu++ DLDI homebrew for you? because with some homebrew they dont work or they say its needs to be dldi patched. or is there a certain kind of patch used for loading homebrew with twilight menu. the homebrews that had this problem for me was NitroTracker V4 and A Neko Story DS

    nds-bootstrap (used to boot old homebrew) has it's own DLDI driver applied to homebrew.
    If the homebrew isn't working, try creating a RAM disk. Instructions are in the first post.

    Works around arm7 having to read data, and just have arm9 do it, like on actual flashcards, but in this case, it's the console's RAM.

    For AP-patching, how does that work on the menu? I try loading clean installations of roms and they aren't working unless I AP-patch them in the DS Scene tool.

    You have to use the latest TWLMenu++ and nds-bootstrap versions.
    What games did you try?

    I actually updated the menu a few days ago. I tried it with Pokemon Black 2, Fossil Fighters Champions, Dragon ball kai ultimate butoden, and Spiderman: Shattered dimensions. All games work if I patch them with the scene tool, but If I run them on my ds without patching them; they don't work.

    Strange. We're you using DSi mode when they didn't boot?

    No, I had them set to default mode. I am updating Twighlight currently, lets see if that works.

    If I use the flashcard method with a R4i Gold 3DS Plus I will be able to use Twilight's features with the card's compatibility right?

    Is there a list of which games work in widescreen?

    What would have to be done for Modern Warfare 3 Defiance to work? There is no AP patch for it currently.

    I did, but the game freezes on the first cinematic on the beginning of the campaign as usual

    Actually, the SD read code is still not stable in some games.
    Some games like Pokemon HG/SS doesn't load with certain save files.

    First of all thanks for this awesome piece of software.

    Secondly I am trying to get the boxart working on the latest (yesterdays') release. I downloaded this pack:
    https://www.gametdb.com/download.php?FTP=GameTDB-ds_box-US-2019-09-04.zip

    And extracted it in the desired location (sd://_nds/TWiLightMenu/boxart) but my DSi just displays some jagged lines for the games that it find the boxart for. Am I using the right source?
