    Thanks a lot for your appreciation!

    On a nds there's 4MB of memory, on DSi 16MB and on 3DS 32MB. This influences the amount of rom that can be linearly preloaded in memory (only from that code can be executed). For data accesses it doesn't matter as those can be fetched from sd just fine (so only potential better speed if data is already in memory).

    Good to know, thanks a lot! Already ordered a DSi. Should be getting here soon - I take it 16MB less is a good tradeoff for better resolution and controls :}

    Will be an avid contributor to testing after that!

    There are really fans for the DSi "no-diagonals" d-pad? Playing shooters on this thing feels awful.

    IMO microswitches will always have more tactile feel than mushy rubber pads. I never had any problems with diagonals on the DSi or GBA SP. But it's all personal preference in the end :)

    Yes!
    This has fixed my issue of getting the games to run on TwilightMenu!
    Thank you

    ONE more thing - the ROM 'Harry Potter - Quidditch World Cup [UE]' seems to be the only ROM in my batch that gives me a white screen after selecting the title form this list in GBARunner.

    It says on the compatibility chart that it should work so I'm not sure what the issue would be (this applies to both arm9 and arm7 versions). any ideas?

    Harry Potter - Quidditch World Cup currently only works with DSi and 3DS.

    I'm acutally using a 3DS so that's why im stummped.

    ..unless do you mean it only works using the .nds file 'GBARunner2_arm7didi_3ds.nds' ? as opposed to the ds arm7 and 9.

    Yes. It currently only works on CycloDS iEvolution (with DSi mode switch), and the console's SD card.

    ooof - that's a bummer. Was really excited when I read on that compatibility list that it ran perfect... I didn't realize it still depends on the flashcard being used.

    Whelp fingers crossed it'll eventually be resolved and branch out to other flashcards in future updates..

    How do the mainline Pokemon games (Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red, Leaf Green) Play on DSi?

    They play fine on a base ds, so they should play even better on a DSi or 3DS.

    How do the Golden Sun games play?

    And is there a compatibility list?

    Golden Sun works fine with the latest master.
    Use commit unspecified (2019/06/03) (sd save branch) arm9 version for the second one.
    You will find a link to this version on the wiki.

    Got my DSi :) Really impressed with the software! I didn't expect it to be this good - and the games look amazing on the DSi, I can tell it's gonna be my favorite way to play GBA games going forward. Didn't have much time to test many games due to work, but WarioLand 4 was my priority and it runs flawlessly!

    Can't wait for my shift to end so I can play around with it a bit more!

    Wow, can't believe I haven't heard of this until now. Maybe I'll finally get around to modding my DSi instead of relying on a DSTwo.

    This also works on DSTWO, just so you know.

    I really need a menu reset option or something implemented soon as playing Mega Man Battle Network 4.5 it becomes evident that when I need to switch my Navi to do some other tasks that turning the system off is a pain. :(

    You should be able to reset the game, or select another one soon.

    The first Negima! Private Lessons works with my 3DS. The second one with DSi speed enabled. Thought I let you know.
