    Boxarts not working anymore. Any information how to set this up? Also a guide for DSiWare would be cool. Didn't get it to work somehow.

    You need .png format box arts.
    Also, you need .nds files of DSiWare. If you're on 3DS, they don't work yet.

    Hello.:)

    First,the really good News:

    The Acekard Theme is FASTER then Booting a Flashcart. <3 Seconds from Power On the DSi until Menu is loading.:bow:
    Very fast behavior on Navigation !! :yay:

    Now unfortunately the bad News:

    The Acekard Theme gives me many,many Exception Screen Errors.:(

    P1060615.JPG P1060617.JPG

    Mainly when I go into a Folder with many Games or Folders (like GameBoy Roms for Example)

    First the Clock Freezes (the flashing ":") and then the Red Screen appears.

    And another Thing:

    Sometimes when I change into the Roms Folder it only show this Screen (No Roms/Folders !):

    P1060616.JPG

    I am sorry to have no better News on the Acekard Theme.:(


    Thank you for the Free Update.:)

    Have you tried making a RAM disk?

    Yes, and "Place any file and/or folder the homebrew expects there, and/or file(s) you want to use" is really specific. That's also leaving out that the smallest version of Tsukihime is over 30MB.

    EDIT: Okay, it appears that this has nothing to do with the file size. Running some other (smaller) VNs still produce an immediate guru error upon loading, however this only seems to happen when using the VN packages that have sound. Using the soundless versions of the VNs doesn't produce such an error (With the exception of Saya no Uta, that encounters a guru error after showing about a dozen lines).

    Also, tried the RAMdisk trick with some of the smaller VNs (So that the package is under 28 MB) and the program breaks upon start-up with a loud rumbling noise being produced by the 3DS.

    EDIT 2: Found the problem! It appears that TWLMenu++ didn't like that VNDS was reading archive files (.zip files for 1.5.0, .novel for 1.5.3). Turned the ZIP files into folders and haven't encountered another problem.

    Try using the version of VNDS on GameBrew it works fine for me from TWiLight

    Edit: Trying with the version of tsukihime you sent it crashed too, I was initially trying with the version from here where it seemed to be working

    I am using 1.5.0 because 1.4.9 refuses to go past the white screen. And, like I said, you have to unpack the ZIP files, ALL of them. Attached is a screenshot of the Tsukihime download that I got from the Mega.

    Also added a pic showing the archived packed (Window on the right) and what it needs to look like if you want to run the games (Window on the left).

    How do you install system tiles like DS Download Play, Nintendo DSi Shop or downloaded/bought tiles like Flipnote Studio or Nintendo DSi Browser?

    In very earlier versions if it worked :(
    Well, I'm in no hurry.
    I always see more "failures" in EUR versions. than the US, curiously.

    I think it has to do that most Homebrew is from our Friends beyond the great Water.:)
    PAL/EU Versions are always like a "Stepchild" in Video Game History.

    Hey Robz, i don't know if you remember me, but whatever, i was the guy having trouble with the widescreen days ago.
    I uninstalled and reinstalled the patch again, the widescreen is back, but now there is numbers blocking the right side of the screen. How do i fix this?
    Also sorry, i know this is starting to get annoying ^ ^`

    Re-download the patcher, and run it again.

    When I attempt to load Twilight Menu from the 3DS menu, I get this error:

    "An error has occurred. Press and hold the POWER Button to turn the system off. Please refer to the Operations Manual for details."

    I am using Luma3DS 10.0.1, and had previously tried it on 7.0.5. I've also tried installing Twilight Menu both with the updater and manually. DS games in my cartridge work fine, and TWLFix didn't make any difference.

    I've always found this strange, because often the PAL/EU version is uncensored, or at least less censored, than the NTSC/US version. The extra digital weight of multi-language support is usually negligible, too.
