    Okay. Bummer I need to load that program every time. It takes like 20 seconds to boot up. Thanks everyone for your help. I am just looking for games now. I'm sure I will be able to play them no problem.

    Gotcha. I like having everything in one place so I will stick with the twilight program and just wait for it to load.

    Okay, so I finally put all the games I wanted on my SD card and after 1 min of a screen that read creating ram dump file please wait, Metroid Prime pinball came on and it works! I found a vid that showed me how to get back to the ds menu by holding down L R d-pad down and B for 2 seconds. How do I put the games in a different order? They are just listed randomly. Not alphabetical. Also, the system wants me to update. Is it safe to do so?

    It is always safe to update the 3ds because boot9strap can't be patched through a firmware update.

    Okay cool thanks. I did not know that about boot9strap. How in the twilight menu? I don't see an option to change the order of the games.

    But don't forget...there is never a reason to update the console immediately. The next update can cause an error screen like earlier in 2018 with the 11.8 update. But atm a update is totally safe.

    Okay. I don't see any option to change the order of the DS games in the Twilight Menu. Is it in a different folder? When I go to my DS games, I can only play them. I can't move the order.

    LOL! I asked how I can arrange my DS games and you told me to go to the Twilight Menu. Change the order and arrange/rearrange are the same thing. Why can't I change the order to be alphabetical or however I want? Seems like an odd admission.

    My fault, sorry. But the games are in alphabetical order, right? At least here with me. And i never set this. Otherwise look in the options.

    No, they are in random order. Where are the options?

    Press SELECT. And then "Twilight Menu Options".

    Thanks. I will try this out when I get home.

    *EDIT* I got into the options which was a DS shape and under sort method, it was already on Alphabetical. I have tried sort alphabetically, by recently played, by most played by file type and custom. None put them in order. I don't even know what custom is. I'm thinking the files themselves have different names in front of them. I remember some of the roms starting with numbers when I downloaded them. That might be causing the issue. I'll see if I can somehow edit them within the twilight menu. I was going to change them before putting them on my SD card but I didn't think it mattered and also didn't want to mess with anything.

    *EDIT* Okay, I found them under FBI. That's exactly what was happening. I am erasing all the numbers ahead of the titles.

    If you want TwilightMenu++ to start up faster disable the intro animation, both splash screens (top and bottom can be toggled individually), and the NDS last rom menu. This'll launch you right into the DSi menu without having to wait through all that.

    It's actually loading up a lot quicker now but I will check that out.

    Thanks to everyone that helped me out in this thread. My 3DS is even better now! Kudos to these smart people.
