    depending on what flash linker you are using it probably auto patches. i'm not aware of a modern day slot1 that doesn't auto patch. have you tried just dropping the homebrew on your msd and testing if it boots up? as for dldirc just right click the file to patch! =)

    No I tried that and it don't work. When I right click it on my laptop I see no function to DLDI patch it. I installed DLDIrc 3 times now. When I boot it on my DS I get a white screen of death. My flash card is EZ-Flash 4 with a passkey 3

    White screens usually indicates a problem launching the homebrew file in the first place, not a DLDI issue. You sure you've got a valid *.nds file?

    Also, what OS are you running? I'm not positive that DLDIrc will work in Vista, as I've never tested it.

    some slot2 cards i've used had homebrew launching issues for stuff that runs in nds mode. try launching it from inside moonshell. it is an extra step but always fixed problems for me. i can also recommend Dlditool-win32-gui and Dldino-apatch. the first one is a gui for patching and the second app will write over the auto patch area so your flash linker won't do it. if moonshell (or another homebrew booter) won't work then give those two a try. they can both be downloaded from the drunken coders dldi wiki page.

    Moonshell says never run DS roms. Lameboy is a DS code so are you sure about that? Not trying to be picky or anything...

    Lameboy is not a DS "rom" as much as it is a DS homebrew application. Moonshell cannot launch commercial roms, but it can run homebrew files on certain slot-2 devices. I don't know if the EZ-IV is one of them however.

    It's not the problem of DLDI it is the problem of running lameboy
