    Basically, I have a DSTwo, and I noticed some stuff about it that I just can't figure out, my DSi has a broken R button, is there any way on the DSTwo to simulate a press of the R button the game can register, whether it's drawing buttons (not literally) on the touch screen, or mapping buttons, if that's even possible, to other buttons,. If I could map buttons I would troll my friends if I get one, or switch confusing controls on my game.

    Also, I've noticed the DSTwo has only 4 save slots, going from 0 to 3. Is there any way to change it to something more reasonable like 10 or 20? I have a 32 GB Micro SD card, so I probably won't have to worry.

    Also, what file systems does the DSTwo support? Does it support FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, EXT2, EXT3, EXt4, etc.?

    Also, how do I add cheat codes? And will I have to patch a ROM with an Anti-Piracy to run it?

    Also, I know I'm a noob with the DSTwo, but how do I change the MENU theme? (Before the menu where you select a ROM.) I had a theme changer thing, but it seems to crash when I click a theme, and after rebooting the DS, and booting the game back up, I still have the old theme.

    What, 4 save slots isn't reasonable? How many people are using your DSTwo on a regular basis? :wtf:

    You could probably make a cheat code to remap the button for the games that need it. Maybe someone with the skills will be kind enough to make one for you.

    DSTwo supports FAT32, and also FAT16 I believe but there's no reason why you would ever want to use that :P

    Cheat codes can be added to usrcheat.dat (in _dstwo) with R4CCE or similar, there is a pretty complete cheat database available online (the DS-Scene ROM Tool is the easiest way to grab it and to stay updated) AP patches are not neccessary, the beauty of the DSTWO is that when ran in clean mode, no anti-piracy mechanism can detect the cartridge so they don't need to be patched. But to my knowledge there are no games that still require clean mode to work correctly, as every loader update adds support for further AP games.

    I usually mess with save slots and basically I'm filling up the card with ROMS of Pokemon Black 2 which is about half a Gigabyte, I'm the only one using it BTW.

    Pressing start at the menu seems to do nothing. I think you're referring to the ROM selection screen, where you browse for the ROM you want and load it. What I meant was the first menu you see before you click the option for files, which leads to the menu you're probably talking about. If you don't know what I mean, it's where the plugins on your DSTWO card are loaded.

    That needs to be done by hand, or DSTwoTools. (Happens to be a plugin)

    Also, is there a way to convert a DSTWO/R4/ACEKARD2i format to DESmuME format or vice versa? I saw this converter (here: http://shunyweb.info/convert.php) and everyone says it supports DESmuME but I don't see DESmuMe's format listed...

    That I do not know, when I dumped my games the dumper used the same format.

    What is exactly wrong with your R button?

    Wh
    When I pressed it it didn't register, However, I found a YouTube video on how to fix it that I thought wasn't true but it did work. Basically, you put your mouth around the button and blow as hard as you can.

    This is what I was going to suggest to you to do
