i recently downloaded Imenu for the Supercard DSTWO, but im not sure about where to put the .nds file. I guess you put the .ini files in /imenu/_ini and the .bmp files in /imenu/_images? I just don't see where the .nds files for homebrew and emulators go?

It doesn't really matter where you place the Homebrew nds files - as long as the related ini file has been edited to 'point' to where you have stored them

Code:
[plug setting]
icon=/_imenu/_images/Colors.bmp
mask=/_imenu/_images/Colors_mask.bmp
name=Colors
file=/_imenu/_plg/Colors.nds
but you could change it to something like

mask=/_imenu/_images/Colors_mask.bmp
name=Colors
file=/_dstwo/plug/Colors.nds

you can put it anywhere, but I think it's easier to put all your .nds and .plg in the _plg folder
that way you can set all your ini to look like this


file=/_imenu/_plg/Colors.nds
file=/_imenu/_plg/EpicCaveman.nds
file=/_imenu/_plg/gba.plg

OK i think i understand it now, guess i gotta change my ini back to txt and put that in there.

So should my .ini look like this?

[plug setting]
icon=/_imenu/_images/Animanatee.bmp
mask=/_imenu/_images/Animanatee_mask.bmp
name=Animanatee
file=/_imenu/_plg/Animanatee.nds

The Name that is shown on iMenu next to Icon ??
- it's the 'name=' line in the ini file, so you would have 'name=Super Smash Crash'

& I'm puzzled why you have to change 'ini' to 'txt' - if you are using Windows you should be able to open the ini with notepad... try right clicking on the ini & select 'Open With' then 'notepad' (or 'Write').
If neither are ther use the 'choose program' option (this is for Windows XP so may be different for other windows like Vista or 7)

EDIT: 'plg' files are special program for the DS2 to use it's own CPU & memory, while 'nds' files will use the DS own CPU/memory. Other than that - there's no real difference between the 2 & you place either/both into the same place(s)
