I unpackacked the rom using the following command.
Code:
ndstool -x Lise.nds -9 arm9.bin -7 arm7.bin -y9 y9.bin -y7 y7.bin -d data -y overlay -t
then repack using this command
Code:
ndstool -c out.nds -9 arm9.bin -7 arm7.bin -y9 y9.bin -y7 y7.bin -d data -y overlay -t
It doesnt matter if I'm editing files or not. The original file is 128MB but recompiles as 87.9MB. What could I be doing wrong?

+1 to the trimming of data. As for it not loading ndstool is not the nicest of apps (but it is fairly quick and simple so most of use it at some stage), perhaps:

There are other tools though like ndsts (only able to replace same size files, you can pad files out though), crystaltile2 (has some nice inbuilt compression as well), nitro explorer and plain manual insertion and repointing with a hex editor ( http://nocash.emubase.de/gbatek.htm#dscart...roromfilesystem ).

    Gyro's fine when aiming or looking around, but to build an entire game around it or pointer-based motion, neglecting comfortable and useable standard controls...just no.
