Are you using it through DS flashcart or SD-slot of a DSi? In the first case I don't understand why you use TWLmenu and not the software of your r4, or YSMenu: usually that software is used only for SD-slot.
In the second case (SD-slot) I didn't know that version worked: I knew that only the old version of DSDoom worked....:unsure:

Some time ago I tried Kippykip' s version and it didn't work from SD-slot (as reported by other users).
How is it possible that you managed to get it to work? Very strange....:unsure:
Anyway, if you use the older version of DSDoom (the one with only sound effects, no BGM) it will work for sure. :D

I have to retract what I wrote previously.
I bothered to try DSDoom SVN again on my DSi XL (SD-slot, TwilightMenu++) and to my amazement found that it works.
Not only that, I tried one of the most demanding wads, Freedoom1 (placed in the root of the SD) by editing the PrBoom.cfg file and, not only does it work perfectly, but it seems to be able to save without the game crashing.
I've tried saving 8 times in a row, in different points of the game, up to map 3 and it has never crashed.
Incredible discovery !!! :O

@KirgoPlayer007 For you, I suggest to delete the game saves; if it still doesn't work, delete and copy the Prboom.cfg file again. :unsure:

Note: I'm still not sure that, using other megawads, you can always save without the DSi freezes or crashes. It should be tested longer, which for now I do not have time to do. I hope others can test it more thoroughly. :wink:

Final note: Instead I confirm that trying Freedoom1.wad on root of r4 gold pro (with YSMenu) using a DS Lite, DSDoom SVN almost always crashes during saving, and it seems obvious that it depends on the lower RAM memory available compared to the DSi. :sad:
