    No. M3 DS meaning M3 DS Simply. Not M3 Lite.

    It works fine for quite a few people.

    Did you delete your _DS_MENU.SYS?

    yes..i've deleted the _DS_MENU.SYS
    my _DS_MENU.DAT was the 1.05 english and the rom seems to be clean... i can't find the problem
    if someone can post his version of _DS_MENU.DAT (english) for m3simply it will be very usefull... *
    thanks for your help iq_132

    edit - the 1/2/n is for the language corresponding to the order they appear in

    1 = chinese
    2 = japanese
    n = no

    Works perfect (excuse the pun!)

    is it meant to turn the menu into R4 on my M3 S?

    Yes. It can also change the region (since m3dss/r4 cards have region settings) and can make M3DSS firmware work on R4 hardware.

    Greatest thing I downloaded in a while... YES I was tired to wait for the M3 team... Works like a charm, just tested with SimCity & Zelda which didnt worked on the M3 but worked on the new firmware of R4... coverted it and bingo!

    THANKS!
