    Yes.
    It's where the homebrew is.

    Tested, but dont worked. These steps can not be done:
    - In TWiLight Menu++, open per-game settings for your homebrew.
    - Set RAM disk to 0.

    The options is not showed when I press Y
    Also, the touch screen is not working. The last time I tried, when I don't used the Ram Disk, the touch was working. I can confirm the emulator is not frozen/crashed because the start button is working (it chooses the up or down screen)

    Is it possible to fix Multiplayer-Compatibility for Super Mario 64 DS, Mario Kart DS, and Mario Party DS?

    Those games use cloneboot for DLP.
    Cloneboot is what needs to be fixed for multiplayer for those games to work.

    Will running DSiWare via nds-bootstrap rather than Unlaunch provide any advantages?

    Unlaunch to my knowledge allows for cfw on the dsi. Running installed pirated DSiWare on that would be the equivalent of running a normal DSiWare app. Nds bootstrap has some compatibility issues but does come with some extra features. Boostrap can also run commercial nds rims whereas I would assume dsiware install cannot

    I already run my (legally obtained) DSiWare through Unlaunch, as well as my DS games through TWLMenu++/nds-bootstrap. I'm wanting to know if this could apply, for example, cheat codes to the DSiWare.

    And, it was announced that nds-bootstrap will support DSiWare in the future.

    I am fully aware that bootstrap was announced to run DSiware. I was referring to the fact that installing DSiware to your console only works for DSiware games whereas boostrap can do both dsiware and commercial games. As for feature differences, the features list does have them listed out in the Twilight menu thread. But for your convenience, right now the only differences are a wide screen mod, optional higher quality audio, and optional over clocking for games that don't originally support it.

    v0.25.0: B4DS

    Introducing B4DS, nds-bootstrap for DS!

    What's new?
    • DS mode flashcard support added! Will work with any flashcard that has a DLDI driver.
      Compatibility is very low atm. Some SDK2 and DSi-Enhanced SDK5 games will work.
      Some may not work, depending on your flashcard.
    Known bug
    • The G6 and iTouch flashcards may not work, due to having a DLDI driver bigger than 8KB.

    Congratulations on the launch! I saw B4DS be announced last Christmas, and I'm very happy it's far enough along in development now for a release - while I don't have a flashcard to use with it myself, I'm very happy the people with one will be able to enjoy nds-bootstrap on it, eventually with full compatability, just like I have!
