    Got the super card today for my ds lite
    Installed the latest kernel and update.

    Ds games work fine but when I launch the gba or snes plugin it says cannot find directory ndssfc or whatever
    Originally I had all the rooms under Gba Games or Snes Games then I changed the folders to NDSSFC or whatever it told me it was looking for.

    Still doesn't work. Additionally I can't find a gbc plugin .. Just the bitmap files. The snes and gab plugins work because the folder actually had the .plug files.

    I don't think there is a gbc plugin, I think you just have to use a regular emulator...

    Okay- there are lame boy plugins for the super card but they don't include the actual plugin file.

    What should the folders look like for the suoercard to get gba and snes games to work with the plugin

    For GBA roms needs to be under /TEMPGBA/ or /NDSGBA/gamepak/ depending on what emulator you're using. For SNES roms need to be under /NDSSFC/gamepak

    Remove emulators, get TEMPGBA and CATSFC, in the sticky topics at the top.
    They are improvements of the old ones you're using right now.
    Read the installation instructions properly.
    If they won't work either, check if the in-game menu of the dstwo works with any ds game to check if the problem lies with the DSTWO's processor.

    There is no dstwo specific gbc emulator by the way.
    The best gbc emulator right now is GameYob.
    To get it to work as a plugin it needs a bmp and ini file.
    There are a lot of pre made plugin files already in the sticky plugins topic. If you can't find it there it should be on the wiki somewhere.
    You can use any homebrew (be it an emulator, game or other) as a plugin, you only need to find or create the bmp and ini files for it.
    A HowTo on this is most likely in the sticky section, where all of the important stuff is.

    The plg files should be in there.
    Are you sure you downloaded the right stuff?

    Edit:
    Checked the filetrip downloads for both emulators, both have the .plg files, you definately downloaded the wrong stuff.

    Here are the direct links:
    http://filetrip.net/d32346-TempGBA-1-45.html
    http://filetrip.net/d32164-CATSFC-1-36-1.html

    The TempGBA zip contains two folders:
    • TEMPGBA
    • _dstwoplug
    Just drag and drop both maps to the root of the sd card and the files are in the right place.
    The other files are just text files and are not necessary to run the emulator.
    Try and boot the emulator from the plugin menu, it should be working now.

    The CATSFC zip contains:
    • CATSFC (folder)
    • catsfc.plg
    • catsfc.bmp
    • catsfc.ini
    Put the CATSFC folder in the root of the sd card and the other 3 files in the _dstwoplug folder.
    Again the other files are just text files unnecessary to run the emulator.
    Try and boot the emulator from the plugin menu, it should be working now.

    That is because there is no gbc emulator with a .plg extension. All of them are regular nds files. Thes "plugin" that you are downloading should just contain an .ini and a .bmp file. You put those two files, along with the gbc emulator .nds file into your _dstwoplug folder. That will cause the emulator to show up in your eos menu.

    Gbc emulator is not a DSTWO specific emulator, so it's just a nds file and not a plg file.

    You don't need plg files for them to appear in the plugin menu. All you need is a .bmp file and .ini file to go with your nds file and you can run any nds file from the plugin menu.
    Just so you know you can also have games and homebrew in your plugin menu.
