    Is there any way to do this to save me the small extra step of clicking A to get into the games folder when loading the DS loader? I've upgraded from an Acekard 2i on my DSi to a DSTwo for GBA games on my 3DS, and on the Acekard it would remember where the games folder was and automatically load to it when starting. I also miss having the up folder button being in the top left corner not taking up a game space, but I'm guessing there is no way to fix that...

    Correct. For both questions.

    You could try using iMenu or BAGplug instead of the official DStwo menu. BAGplug has an 'open last folder' option, so when you boot it up, it goes to the last folder you used for your gaming adventures.

    Get BagPlug. 10 times better than Supercard's EOS

    EOS automatically opens the last folder accessed.

    I'd have to check that, I guess it doesn't seem that way because you have to go back to the root to exit back to the plugin menu unless you restart the dstwo.

    As far as I've noticed, the only real advantages BagPlug has over EOS are the Favorites feature and that it loads the games folder from the start (that is, you don't have to select "DS_GAME" after booting). The icon interface of EOS is much better than the list view of BagPlug, as it shows much more selectable games on the screen at the same time.

    i like the BAGplug interface way better than EOS myself.
    It can show game/book/homebrew/whutevuh cover art and icons, and it's got the super nifty ARGV support for direct game launching for nesds, bagsfc/catsfc, neods, stellaDS, a7800, ikureader, dsdoom wads, and GBA too if youve got the moonshell version of gbaexploader by linoul and a slot-2.

    ...and there's a decent integrated mp3 player.

    VatoLoco is right. Dude, every game on my micro sd card shows the box art on the top screen of the DS. I'm talking NES games, all the way to DS games, everything! You should check it out because once you set it up, it's phenomenal. BagPlug won the Homebrew Bounty for the Supercard DSTwo division, I believe last year.

    I did try BagPlug, and ended up going back to EOS. What do I need to see the box arts for? I can already tell what game or homebrew application I'm selecting by looking at its icon or name. That feature seems more fanciful than useful to me. Not that there's anything wrong with such "neat" features, but I'm not going to switch GUIs over something like that, especially when I find the interface of my current GUI much more efficient (if only because of EOS' icon view).
