    Anyone know why there is a 3MB file limit on the .nds rom when using nesDS on a R4/Simply slot1 card? It's a bit of a pain, I was hoping I could just dump all my NES roms into a single NDS rom.

    To my knowledge, nesDS doesn't support R4/Simply yet. They are in the work of adding DLDI support, but no one knows when that'll be done. On my M3 MiniSD, nesDS worked perfect, and I didn't bind any ROMS to the file. I just made a \NES folder and put all my roms in that.

    despite not supporting it, it still works fine except saving.

    I have mine working, but I have to use the batching program that came with it to compile a .nds rom and the .nds file cannot exceed 3MB in size or it simply won't work. Saving doesn't work either for me.

    it's likely because it has to be laoded fully into the ds's ram (4mb) before playing.

    That probably explains why snesDS doesn't work on the R4. That is unless you only put Super Mario World in the ROM list. SMW is a very small ROM itself, most SNES ROMs are 3MB or higher.
