    There is no other way.
    You'll have to use TWiLight Menu++.

    I'm aware this post is old but... I cannot for the life of me get this jar to open. I have java version 15.0.2 installed on my pc. Running it with this version I get the error
    Code:
    Error: Could not find or load main class com.olmectron.forwarder.Forwarder3DS Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javafx/application/Application
    I tried downloading java 1.8.0_281 and running the command inside of the bin folder so i could try it with that version. That gave me a much longer error:
    Code:

    Does anybody know what's going on? Thanks!

    EDIT: it didn't have permissions, carry on. We're good now.

    I never got the forwarder to work. So I tried again more recently. When ever I try run.bat, it sometimes opens the Forwarder for a split second and then closes. I'll get a black window, and it'll say "Exception in Application start method"

    Hi!

    I have been trying to download Mario Vs Donkey Kong Mini land mayhem, but because it's a DSI enhanced, I have no idea how to do it. I saw that in the png that you had that game installed. So there must be a way to install it. Can you tell me how to do it?

    Same way you do it with regular DS games: by making a forwarder for it.

    The usual way the Forwarder works is that it creates a CIA File that you install with FBI.
    It installs the Forwarder as DSiWare, so it adds to the 3DS' 40 limit.

    After, you'll find a new Application on your 3DS Menu which opens up the NDS Game through TwiLight Menu++ without having to open TwiLight Menu++.

    Having said that and judging from your photo, you're missing the CIA File the Forwarder created.

    The Instructions on the first page of this Post are pretty straightforward; from your photos, the part you want to pay attention to is Part 4. If that's hard to understand, I'm not sure I can explain it any clearer for you; it feels like you're not paying attention to the words written nor the examples, so what is there to do.

    For example, on your Forwarder photo, you forgot to turn on one of the ticks compared to the Instructions.
    But if you can follow all the Instructions, then you'll find your CIAs in the Folder named Generated, within the Application's Folder; copy the ones you want into your MicroSD and install with FBI.

    You'll probably find all the others you created before, in separate Folders named after their Date and Time of creation.

    Hello!
    I've got a question about this part in the first post:
    Isn't the "R4i Ultra" the clone of the "Acekard 2i"?
    And the "R4 Ultra" is supposed to be (partly) a clone of the "Acekard RPG".
    My question is: Which one is meant, "R4 Ultra or "R4i Ultra"?
    Or does it not matter, considering both Acekards those Ultra-cards are clones of are listed under "Compatible"?

    The card I have shows "www.r4ultra.com", so that's why I thought it's an R4 Ultra.

    (Sorry for a double-post)
    Step 2 says to get AP-IPS-patches from the TWiLightMenu-archive.
    How's that going to work now that all patches will be packed in a custom format?

    Linking to the last release with plain IPS-files, just in case: https://github.com/DS-Homebrew/TWiLightMenu/tree/v19.1.1

    The first post has been updated.

    Speaking of updates, the SD Card forwarder template has been updated!
    • nds-bootstrap: D⁽ⁱ⁾rectors' Cut is now included, which allows running DS⁽ⁱ⁾-Enhanced games in DS⁽ⁱ⁾ mode (automatically set by the forwarder, if the ROM is a clean dump), as well as DS⁽ⁱ⁾-Exclusive and DS⁽ⁱ⁾Ware games (the latter with saving not working yet)!
      Optionally, you can hold the Y button before the game boots, to run in DS mode instead (only applies to DS⁽ⁱ⁾-Enhanced games).
    • An AP-fix pack (as well as AP-fixes in cheat (.bin) form) can now be used alongside .ips files.
    To update, please follow Part 1.1 in the first post of this thread.
    If you don't have TWiLight Menu++ or if you haven't updated it to v20.0.0 or v20.0.1, follow Part 2 in the first post of this thread.

    Question but as a person that plays games with saves, is there a way to play with already existing saves? (For example: Animal Crossing Wild World with an already existing save, since it would be annoying to start from zero)

    Just place the .sav file in the "saves" folder, which is in the same location as the .nds file.

    I just replaced the nds-bootstrap files on my sd card so I can run games in DSi mode. However it doesn't seem to work. I had pokemon conquest installed through the forwarder and when I enter the wifi menu it still tries to use the in-game nintendo wfc instead of my 3ds's native connection
