Hey people,

I'm new to DS Homebrew. Just got into Homebrew on the Wii.
I've searched around and practically tried everything.

I can't seem to get my ROMs to work. So far two of them work. Mario Kart DS and another game. All the rest don't seem to work.

I've Used both the firmwares and updated through wifi and I just don't know what else to do.

Again, I'm rather new. Can someone tell me exactly what ALL is needed in my mSD card and link me to a resourceful site?

Many thanks, and I know this topic is redundant, but I'm pretty much desperate right now haha.

Edit: I managed to get some ROMs to work. I deleted everything out of the mSD card and only used the firmware from AceKard.com, didn't make any changes or update through wifi.
I'm not sure if it's fully resolved, but I'm hoping! I would still like any input you may have.

Thanks again guys

hmmm seems that your loaders are either missing or currupted.

Ok first things first. Backup everything u want/dont want to spend time downloading again like ROMs, SAVs, or Skins

1) Format your MicroSD with the Panasonic SD Formatter
2) Download AKAIO 1.4.1 PROPER
3) Extract and Copy everything in that in the AKAIO 1.4.1 PROPER folder except the AKAIO Readme (so that's __aio & ak4menu.nds) to your MicroSD
4) Restore your personal settings (skins, ROMs, SAVs, ect)
5) Load the Acekard and try again.

If that doesnt work, go to Start --> More --> Wifi then tap "Update Loaders"

The loaders will then update and it should work.

All the download links can be found here: AKAIO Wiki - Links

Unless the Roms you download are not clean, then the games should work, if not , do what jonjon95 just said...

Hey guys,

Yea, I tried that. It doesn't work. I've updated it with wifi.

What I did now was download/install from AceKard's website. Didn't update it through wifi. Now I can play my NDS Roms. Thing is, I can't play MANY of my non-DS Roms.

I've downloaded an emulators pack that was suggested for the NDS. Only thing that works is my All Stars game with SNES.

I really appreciate your feedback, thanks!

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).

  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
