Formatting options : Overwrite format

Cheats: In YSMenu, Press Y on the game you want to use cheats on. Select the cheats you want, then press START to save and return to YSMenu
Delete: In YSMenu, Press X to delete a file. (You'll need to edit the following line in YSMenu.ini to: NO_DEL=false)

i love you, but i read that you needed a patched version of Last Window The Secret of Cape West in order for it to work.

"The following games must be PATCHED to work on a DSTT :

5213 - YLUP - Last Window The Secret of Cape West (E)(SUXXORS) PATCHED
5233 - BJ3E - Etrian Odyssey III The Drowned City (U)(HADOUKEN) PATCHED"

Does this mean that this wont work?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    From what I've heard about the Expansion Pack, the emulator used has some noticeable input delay and/or lag...would BLJs even be possible?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
