    ok downloaded this and extracted everything over to my sd root (it replaced a couple of files) and it all looks exactly the same! nothing has changed and warioware d.i.y still does not work...white screen of doom still... but the card loads up and works still... exactly as it did before...
    have i missed something? I copied the TTmenu folder too but still no change?!
    ...please help.

    The language.ini is the file that needs to be replaced, if you prefer just take the one included in the link above and replace the one already in the TTMenu folder.

    Edit...
    Disclaimer: I take no credit for anything in the archive linked above, other than quickly slapping together and renaming a few files already in existence.

    WOW it works!! thank you thank you thank you!


    sorry but have a few questions/problems...

    1 moonshell2 white screens of death on boot... [​IMG] morning timer loads though....
    2 scrolling and loading is very slow (but loads a pic of every app and game which is cool)
    3 what is 'check disk for NDS ver0.4' and 'image viewer 1.11' and 'nesterds' and 'IPK'
    4 where can I find a readme file or any extraa info for this firmware?

    going to play around and see if I can get moonshell to work, apart from that everything is great


    oh and now I can get warioware d.i.y. to work!!!!!
    flamingo24 you are a friggin genius!!

    Try formatting in FAT16 with maximum allocation, that might help the lag in the menu.
