so i was following this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/nds-forwarder-cias-for-your-home-menu.426174/


and i picked games are on SD card and downloaded the files for it and everything but when i installed the CIA files for the games and loaded them it just loads the DS bios screen


thanks if you can help me get it fixed
you have to have the _nds folder on your 3ds sd card. Use the program for windows to create the forwarder. It should show the DSi bios thing and if the game is supported, it should boot after a white screen.

If you did ALL of the steps, make sure your sd card is formatted to have a 32kb cluster size. Do this with a PC or GodMode9. Make sure to backup EVERYTHING from your sd card to your PC.

nds-bootstrap. You should already have that, if you extracted the pack. If not, the forwarder will say that bootstrap isn't found.
