Is there technically a size limit? Yes. However, that limit is 4GB (the FAT32 file size limit), which no DS rom even approaches. You can try updating your nds-bootstrap to the latest version, that should give you the best compatibility.

quick question, does the launcher automatically check for updates on launch or do I need to do something?

Not yet, it will have a check for updates feature in the future though. The proper way to update for now is the grab the latest version from the thread linked above and replace the "_nds" folder and boot.NDS with the ones in the download there.

ahh okay thank you! I only asked because it has those update options in the second page of the main menu but they were greyed out
