    Pokemon Black, Black 2, White and White 2 crashes melonds. The other pokemon games runs fine. I need to restart my switch to use again. Using SXOS. Tried different roms but same result.

    @catlover007 , you can get editing privileges from @Hydr8gon for the first post of the thread if they'd be willing. That way you can add the current build to the OP and we don't lose the archive of info here. Also, it would be better if you could link to a GitHub or other repository ideally so you don't have to update the link consistently, but if you have your reasons for doing it the current way, I understand.

    Maybe you guys have an answer my pokemon games crash on Melon. All other games work tho is it because my SD is in Exfat or is it something else

    While you should probably switch over to fat, this sounds like you're using the album to launch the hbmenu.
    Large ROMs need more RAM, i.e. they can only be launched with atmosphere title replacement (and not with album override).

    Thanks I just googled in how to do that and it worked I guess the next question since I'm at work I cant really test it through does all the games run at full speed? I actually had good speed without doing the title replacement trick I guess my issue was with NSMB the game would freeze I hope the title replacement trick kills that.

    A bonus question in the near future would there be 3DS support or it's super difficult. I'm loving the DS emulator I just have to google when I have the chance to enable DS cheats I had bought Drastic on android so what I do is enable the cheat on there and just transfer the save file. I only do this on pokemon

    It depends. Most 2d games run fullspeed without any overclocking, while 3d games usually still require it.

    the 3DS is completely a completely different console. The only reason a 3DS can run DS games is because it has more or less a DSi integrated.

    melonDS currently does not support cheats, though it's being worked on(http://melonds.kuribo64.net/comments.php?id=111)

    switchroot android can run 3ds but it is super slow. So methinks that will not happen if ever but you never know.

    What do Literal Optimisations and the other one do, turning them off seems to have no effects besides maybe speed gains in Pokémon?

    I Installed Atmosphere and I open melonds and when I launch either Pokemon Black, Black 2, White and White 2 it crashed too. I need to reboot my switch to use it. Tried both SX OS and Atmosphere and still crash. I received error 2168-0002. I'm using 9.0.1 firmware. Other pokemon games loads and plays fine.

    Literal and branch optimisations are from their nature not 100% safe, though I try to make them as compatible as possible. In case you experience a bug or freeze you can try disabling them as a workaround and if it works you can tell me so I immediately have a clue where to search for. That's exactly what happened right in the following quote:
    Again thanks for testing. I already did some investigations, this one is a bit more tricky and I have to give up on a hack (which worked surprisingly well), but if everything works out everything will be more accurate and maybe even a bit faster.

    @catlover007

    What about the save formatting? It's not recognizing my saves what I normally so is just rename them back to .SAV from my .DSV from drastic but it isnt recognizing them

    the save files have to go into /roms/ds and be named the same way only with .sav added(e.g. Legend of Zelda, The - Phantom Hourglass (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It).nds -> Legend of Zelda, The - Phantom Hourglass (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It).nds.sav). Afaik melonDS uses like drastic raw saves, so unlike desmume you don't need to convert them (desmume saves usually have the file extension .dsv).

    I did some research, I was wrong. Drastic uses the desmume save format. You need to convert them by opening the ROM the rom with the save in desmume and use the export backup memory function to convert the save file to the format melonDS uses
