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.

    So why is it that we're not allowed to talk about somebody shooting up a school if that person happens to be trans, even when not expressing a personal opinion???

    Here's a neat trick... if you have the edit post page open,, you can edit your post, even after the thread is locked. :D
  • S @ SeniorFuego:
    And knowing is half the battle. So why aren't the people allowed to know about the school shooting that happened the other day? People sure are free to talk about every other divisive topic in the politics section. And it usually swings in favor of the anti-republican types if a thread is allowed to stay up. Funny, that...
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But not really "ha ha" funny.

    I thought you people were supposed to be against authoritarianism.

  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Everybody already knows about it, you know that your thread was taken down for your own idiotic statement and not because of the content. Take two minutes to browse the politics forum and you'll see that the admins definitely aren't authoritarian.
