    Ahh..OK. So, heres my question:

    How do you play a homebrew game? For an example, lets say i go to gbatemp and click the downloads link, which takes me to filetrip. After searching for the right forum, i find the homebrew section. in that section people have homemade games that they have made...And the million dollar question is.....

    If I download that game the made, where on my flashcart do I put it? Do I make a new folder and put it in moonshell? do i just toss it in with my NDS games?

    Info:
    CycloDS Evolution
    Moonshell: Yes, I'd be lost without it (long care rides + no good music = [​IMG] .)
    Firmware: 1.56B3 (doubt you need to know that)

    If you need anything else, just ask.

    Well homebrew games are .nds files, just like the ds games you pirate. Don't forget each homebrew game or app is different and may include more files. Always read the readme.

    You can put them anywhere unless the readme states otherwise. Create a homebrew folder or something.
