Could you please provide a build of gb_audio branch? Thank you very much!
Here you go. Note that this branch does not perform saving, since it was based off the file_explorer branch. I also haven't excessively tested this since it's still work in progress. The only tests I did were with the arm9dldi version. Only gb channel 1 and 2 are currently supported.

Edit: Ofc it would be nice to get some feedback on how well it works, since I've not tested that many different games.

The new version doesn't allow saves?
Only because it's a work in progress thing. I kept this feature separate from the saving, because as long as the corruption issue for creating new saves is not fixed I cannot merge that feature. I will merge this branch into the saving branch when this is more finished though.

Well, some progress has been made on wifi linking. It's still very unstable and you cannot try it yet, because it uses hardcoded mac addresses. But still pretty cool it does something:

I have numerous questions.

1) Atm I want to SRAM patch some roms, but the GBARunner2 wiki's link for GBATA sends me to a website who says that their service is closed. When I try downloading the file provided there, chrome identifies it as a harmful file and instead of asking to keep it, it just cancels the download outright. I'm fairly sure this is just chrome being chrome and the file is safe, but with the website telling me that its service is closed, I'd like to be on the safer side of things this time around. Is the download still working/trustworthy?

2) Atm I'm trying to run the arm9 version on my DSi with HiyaCFW installed, however all I get back is TEST in the top right of my screen. How do I install arm9 on my DSi with HiyaCFW correctly? Most guides I see either use something other than Hiya or just don't specify.

3) What specific version of GBARunner2 comes with the current HiyaCFW download? (arm9, arm7, etc not just "the current version")

1: You can get GBATA from dowloading in another site, i don't know if i dowloaded it from this site but it seems to work (http://www.no-intro.org/tools.htm).
2: If you're using a DSi or 3DS to run GBARunner2 you need to download the ARM7 version, the ARM9 version only works with r4's and other flashcarts that support DLDI.
3: I think it comes with the ARM7 version, not sure if it's the latest

Please can someone help me.
I found this info online and what you guys are doing is great.
I am getting older and my eyes are getting worse. So the idea if playing classic gb/gba on the big screen of a dsi xl is amazing ...
So.
I followed a guide on the internet think it was guide.cfw or cfw.guide can't remember.
Got all the way through but the gba does not work.
The twilight screen looks like the old ds and at the bottom there us the gba player (I got the bios on the root of the sd card)
But.
When j try to launch it i just get a white screen with this txt in the top corner.. "TAFN3DS sd card ab ab ab ab

Is there a guide with pictures?
So it's possible to see the screens I should be seeing?
I'll admit I am not the best at this so any advice would be great.
Thank you

Hello.:)

Your issue comes maybe from an SD Card which has not right formatted.:(
You have to use FAT32.No extFAT or NTFS or FAT/FAT16.Please check this.
Please backup the SD Card,re-format it with FAT32 and copy all files back.
That should solve your GBARunner problem.:)

Another thing could be that your GBA ROM has to be SRAM patched.But please try first the upper suggestion.
Thank you.:)

Yep, TAFN means that no fat32 partition could be found.

@Gericom, I see you updated several branches on the gbarunner2 github page. Do you plan to release another build soon?
I cleaned up the git a little, because I noticed that file_explorer basically had became the new master :P. I also comitted a small sound fix there that should fix some issues with direct sound and desyncing (it seems mksc sounds better). Then I merged master into the other branches to apply this fix there as well. I started working on a new gui, which will also be needed to be able to setup the linking and such. It will be based on material design like in youtube ds.

Can´t wait for the new menu design! Also congratulations to your thousandth post on gbatemp.:P
Haha, I didn't even notice. Thanks!

This is a mockup of the new design in Photoshop:

Edit: Forgot to tell, but I managed to make mksc work with wifi linking. This is however a game that is easy on timings, so others may not work. Rayman 3 didn't at least, but I didn't try any others yet.
