Thanks but is there a specific place to put the roms in or am i missing something again because the error is gone but i get just black screen.
The ROMs can be placed anywhere.
In Forwarder3-DS, make sure the ROMs have been dragged from the SD card, and not the PC itself.

Can anyone confirm If I can use this method to make my legit NDS cartridges as forwarder .cias and would it be compatible with PokeTransporter/PokeMwer(Pokebank) to be able to transfer my pokemons from Black/White 1/2 over to Pokebank?

The LEGIT NDS cartridges are working perfectly fine but it would be cool not to insert the cartridges every single time I want to use PokeTransporter.

Nope, can't be done.

I tried dragging from the SD card but for some reason it didn't work and didn't show anything on the forwarder, tried taking the roms from my pc and manually set the path on the SD and got a top black screen and a bottom white screen...

EDIT: for clarirfication - I'm using the 3DS SD card through a phone to read it on the pc, roms are on the SD.

I use FTP and boop to transfer everything, never stick the SD on computer unless i have to transfer something really huge. So yes, it can be done.
I'll step by step how i do it, in case it helps anyone
  • (optional) Fix and trim ds roms with DS-scene rom tool
  • drag that output file (or the original if you feel like skipping the first step completely) onto the fowarder. Manually set the location to wherever you'll put the rom on your SD card (for example, i have a "roms" folder on root, and inside it "DS", so it looks like "roms/ds/nameofmygame.ds"
  • use Filezilla and some FTP homebrew app on console to transfer the ds game onto the folder you set up earlier, make sure the filename is the same and all that.
  • create CIA, drag onto Boop and install using FBI remote install.
  • restart console, game should appear and play just fine.
  • if it doesn't, check for updates on your bootstrap and all that, try a different game, a different rom version of the same game perhaps.

For those having issues running the .jar file on windows, despite having installed java. Hold shift and right-click on the empty space next to the extracted Forwarder3DS.jar file. Select "Open powershell window here". In the terminal type: "java -jar .\Forwarder3DS.jar" without the "quotes" and hit enter.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Soft resetting Pokemon Soul Silver crashes the console. I'm assuming it's a known bug. Any intentions on fixing this?

I'm unable to run the Forwarder jar. I'm on Win10 x64 reinstalled java as suggested many times. I'm getting following error when trying to run in cmd https://pastebin.com/g2WYceEF
Edit: Java Version is 1.8.0_221
Edit2: Found a solution to the Problem! Run the jar with
Code:
java -jar -Djna.nosys=true Forwarder3DS.jar

Thanks!
This solved my problem
