    Hello!
    I downloaded the TWiLight Menu and I want to know if there's some way to connect my Pokémon Diamond with My Pokémon Ranch (Wii), when I tried I got dual white screens. I have a R4 and it doesn't work, and I really wish I could send my Pokémon to the ranch. Is there some way to do it, or will be in the near future?

    Does that require DS/Wii Internet servers? Because all of those have been down for a while, AFAIK. If you can do it over local wi-fi, then I dunno.

    Twilight menu++ updater keeps crashing both my systems, is it required to update manually?

    Try installing the latest version of the updater manually.
    If that still crashes, then yes, update manually.

    I have an R4SDHC which is only compatible with the DS Phat and DS Lite (it launches by intercepting the boot process of the DS during the warning screen, so it isn't seen as a game on the 3DS). The card is fully compatible with the official firmware for the R4SDHC (v1.34), so I think it is genuine. When I add Twilight Menu++ to the card (merging both "_nds" folders to and copying BOOT.NDS to the root directory of my card) and try to launch Twilight Menu++'s BOOT.NDS from moonshell on my DS I just get a white screen. Does anyone know why that might be?

    Try without Moonshell.
    The official firmware should be able to boot it. If not, try booting it with nds-hb-menu.

    Thanks, I just tried this. Whenever I replace the official "_DS_MENU.DAT" (with the Twilight Menu++ one or the hbmenu one) my R4 just gets stuck on the black "Loading" screen though. I tried launching hbmenu through moonshell and that ran except that I was unable to then use it to run either Twilight Menu++ or the example argvTest.nds without it getting stuck on the message "Running fat:/nds/<filename>.NDS with 1 parameters" (although that may be because I wasn't using the correct "_DS_MENU.DAT".

    I thought I should point out that the link for the "Check here on how to update TWiLight Menu++." part of the github release page now goes to a 404 page since the "RocketRobz" page is now gone, the link needs to be updated to "DS-Homebrew".

    Did you follow all of the steps?
    If so, it should already be in "/_nds/TWiLightMenu/".

    In the 7z file, extract the "_nds" folder from both the 7z root and the "Flashcard users" folder, to the flashcard's microSD root. Merge folders, when asked to.

    Sorry, cheats can't be used with TWLMenu++ on flashcards.
    If you want to use cheats on the SD card games, place "usrcheat.dat" at "sd:/_nds/TWiLightMenu/extras/".

    I'm having trouble with the widescreen mode. I am on the latest version, sysmodules in Luma enabled and the TWL firm is patched properly from the guide on GitHub. Did I do something wrong? All the settings are correct.

    Are you launching a game supported with widescreen?

    Is the ROM modified in any way? It should not be, if so.
    Also, make sure you're on Luma v10.0.1.

    The ROM is a clean rip from a legit cart and i'm on latest luma. If it helps, I have fastboot3ds set to boot the boot.firm on the CTRNAND.
