    Got got my M3, have been using Triple Loader's Sakura and im amazed with this firmware, it looks gorgeous and is pretty fast, responsive and useful.

    Got a few questions:

    1) Is there any way to turn off that screen saver or at least raise the time it takes to kick in?

    2) Is there some config file i could edit, or anything, with deeper options? Looked for it, but didnt find anything obvious.

    3) Is it possible to change some config to enable soft-reset by default for all games? I really dislike having to config it manually for each rom, and i dislike even more the extra .OPT file it creates for each, just because of it.

    4) Can i lock the R and L buttons (like possible in moonshell)? This blocks me from having DS in my pocket for MP3 listening, as the buttons screws things.

    Thanks in advance =)

    Thanks thedice!

    Now i would like to know what can i remove from the Triple Loader Sakura Pack, for space saving purposes.

    - Cheat Database?
    - Other language files?
    - Is there anything else that isn't needed for the system?
    - Why the system folder got a few files mentioning Acekard and his options on them? It's a mistake, i guess?

    I think those files are in the Japanese release too, so this theory can be ruled out.

    Yeah, but i never ever use these, so it bothers me that they are there taking space, even if just 7 or so mb.
    I guess im spoiled by R4 system that was like 2mb or so [​IMG]
    I will just try and see, then.

    Anyway, thanks for all [​IMG]

    7mb?
    probably more like 1MB max for all language files and the cheat database.

    Dude, if you you are a space freak or are in dire need of space going through the system files will be a waste. Try trimming your roms! Sakura works perfectly with trimmed DS roms and I've never had a problem (even while hosting download play). The one trimming problem was with GBA games, for which games like "Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories" can freeze and play data (this sounds annoying) after loading a real time save.

    Well, the extra language files in System folder sums up 4,25mb here, and the 3 cheat files i found (cheat.db, cheats.dat, cheats.xml) makes almost 9mb and the itouch's cheat db got 5mb.

    I think i will remove Itouch's firm as well... Is there anything that Sakura and Real cannot boot, that Itouch can?

    yeah i have aways trimmed all my roms since i begun using flashcards at all, but thanx for the tip anyway [​IMG]
