    I did something wrong with TWiLightMenu and it takes a long time to boot games. It takes 7 minutes to load White 2. Also I like TWLoader’s GUI.

    Update nds-bootstrap to the latest version.
    TWLoader doesn't support the latest nds-bootstrap version, and has less features than TWiLight Menu++.

    As for your forwarder issue, is the .nds filename shortened?

    Where is the .forwarders folder? Is that just you? Maybe I could try the same.

    Yes. Also I tried AP patching all that apply. They all have two letter names.

    Also I appreciate all the software you’ve been making. I almost thought there was no way to “digitally” play nds games. :D

    It's a hidden folder in the same place as the .jar file.

    Okay. I tried erasing sdcard.nds and it did restore it, but I still got an nds file. Is there still something I’m doing wrong?
    Thanks for the help by the way.

    EDIT: Also, any suggestions on what boxes should be checked?

    What exactly is the permitted length of the NDS file name?

    I’m not much of a developer (yet) but perhaps we could help you check things and figure out the issue so you can make a new release? Is there an older version that was more stable/worked better?

    is cheat support acheivable with forwarders available now that Twilight menu supports it? or will it be achievable?

    Alright, after 3 days of figuring out on what's up with 3-DS Forwarder, I found out a solution to why it won't make .cia files of the .nds files (I'm not sure if this solution works but so far it works with me). I think the reason why is because of the make_cia that comes with the 3-DS Forwarder app doesn't work which is possibly why it doesn't give you the .cia files but instead gives you .nds files that is generated from the app itself.

    So, I decided to do a little research and found this .zip file which contains the make_cia file. All you have to do is extract the make_cia, get the make_cia file and replace the file from the 3DS-Forwarder with the file you got from the extracted folder, and there you go! Hopefully this worked as it did for me. :):)

    Thanks. It worked for me too. I was beginning to think that I was really stupid and couldn't follow simple steps...

    I noticed there’s no sleep mode while using NDS roms. Is there a fix for that?

    EDIT: Nevermind. This problem only occurs when using wireless communications.

    is potential cheat support in forwarders something that is even possible? maybe adding a cheat file to the forwarder creation,
    would there be anyway to have a gui to activate and deactivate cheats

    Is this the only way to get nds games to show up in my activity log instead of my flashcart showing up?
