    im running a dstwo plus, with bagplug, on a ds lite. when i launch a ds game i get two options "internal" and "eos"

    so in the FAQ section of the dstwo thread it says this

    so on the one hand im thinking that it would be more efficient to run it on internal mode, because it will run the game without running the os, thus freeing up resources.

    on the other hand, running it in eos mode gives you the benefit of the updates that come with the eos that you downloaded, thus increasing compatibility.

    fact is, those are both no more than a stab in the dark, and this "answer" isnt really that informative.

    so whats the difference between these two. i usually launch my ds games as internal since its the first option, ive done eos a couple times randomly, but i havent seen any games NOT work on either of them?

    if one is almost always better, or if there is no difference then im just going to delete the other from my arg file so launching a game requires one less button press.

    thanks.

    i have a dstwo, how can you choose where it loads from? never noticed you could change this kind of stuff

    nvm, BAGPLUG.. i didn't know there was another interface...

    what are the differences? isn't EOS better (and more updated?)

    I think that's a BAGPlug option and it has nothing to do with the FAQ you mentioned, it's just running it with BAGPlug directly vs. running it through EOS. I assume the EOS method has better compatibility.

    yaa, i guess i didnt realize it since ive been using bagplug since i got the thing (wanted cover art), but there are .arg files which determine what plugin launches for a given file type, and the one for .nds files had 2 options. one just says "internal" the other specifically runs the rom with "DSGAME.nds"

    dsgame.nds is not specific to bagplug right? what is it exactly

    If you care about cheats, real time save, in game guide, etc, or if it crashes with internal, use EOS. Otherwise, use internal.
