    So I homebrewed my DSI XL with homebrew, TWmenu++, unlaunch, and GBARunner2. But when i load a game in GBArunner2 it does the iconic gameboy ding but then it's just a white screen, What do I need to do to get games to run?

    Thank you, also I have a kind of related problem on pokemon heartgold when I run the rom. I can launch the game but if there is a save it crashes the game. Without a save i runs just fine. Any idea why?

    this is with TWiLight Menu++??

    if so you need to Anti-Piracy Patch it i think.

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/ap-patch-preservation.477536/ look in the 1st post and find the patch and patch your game.

    Hey did you get any other games working with gbarunner2 on your DSI? I just set mine up with twilight menu running from the Sd card and the only rom I can get working is Kirby’s nightmare in dreamland. If I put any other rims in my GBA folder my dsi will freeze when I browse to that folder.

    Gba games that work for my DSiXL are:
    Kirby's Nightmare in dreamland
    Astro Boy
    Dragon Ball Advanced Adventure (laggy and slow)
    Kingdom hearts chain of memories
    Kirby and the Amazing Mirror (lags at times)
    The legend of Zelda The Minish Cap (glitchy)
    Super Mario Advance 2 - Super Mario world

    Of course these all are USA Roms.

    This is my fork of GBARunner2 that plays Pokémon Emerald.

    https://bitbucket.org/Coto88/gbarunner2

    For the moment it performs proper loading and saving of SRAM-patched Pokémon games (and other games). And is untested in DSi, but the DLDI works from ARM7 so it should run. (means NTR flashcards will work, but a DSi build may require some tweaks)


    Enjoy.


    edit: since Pokémon Emerald now boots again in https://github.com/Gericom/GBARunner2/tree/feature/rom3M would be great if beta testers could :

    Hey I am having trouble. When I first hacked my dsi i could play gba games thru gbarunner2. Every since I put my gameboy color roms on my sd card and played them I can’t even see my gba roms in the folder. They’re on my sd when I load in the computer.

    Are you trying to view the .gba ROMs in TWLMenu++, or GBARunner2?
    If the first, then they currently can't be viewed, 'til GBARunner2 gets argument support and/or game autobooting.

    Ok thanks for that. Since I know that I have another problem now because now my dsi just goes straight to the twilight menu++. I can’t even chose the start gbarunner anymore.

    Press SELECT to open the SELECT menu, and you'll see where to start GBARunner2.
