    M3 DS Simply loader 1.04 beta

    Out now...








    [​IMG]
    The M3 team have released version 1.04 beta of the M3 DS Simply loader, just a few days after the release of R4 DS loader 1.08 beta. As to be expected, this update contains identical functionality to R4 1.08. Here's what's new:

    cool - installed it - will have to read the instructions as it has one current save game and one backup, which it swaps between, overwriting the existing one, so seems i can only have one save game at a time, plus its most recent backup.

    Yeah, the backup save is only useful if you want to back up your save at some point. It will not allow you to have multiple saves for a game.

    what does, 1) Automatically detect the SLOT-2 card, supports NDS and GBA cart. do? i updated and still looks the same when i boot to my slot 2 it goes NDS mode not gba, and when i switch it to GBA no border or anything, so what does this really do?

    If you have an actual GBA game, or a flashcart that does NOT have a DS mode in slot 2, it will now boot it properly (instead of just locking up) and display the GBA border. If the cart you have in slot 2 does have a DS mode, it will boot that, and the GBA border will never come in to play.

    Finally, I can boot my x-rom with the M3. I was tired of taking the M3 out everytime I wanted to use my X-Rom

    I can see only one point, and that is that the R4 is being prioritized.

    I like the theme switching. You put multiple themes in the _system_ folder in directories "theme01", "theme02", etc.. and in the main menu you can cycle through them with "select".
    When you hit the end of the amount of themes you have (4 for me) it goes back into "automatic" (monthly) mode.

    I like the toggling.

    ROFL Jamesco loved everything except for the bottom words. I'm using r4 but, i think they are the same so I can confirm that their are no problems with this beta version. Everything works fine.
