    I installed it on my R4, and it looks pretty cool, especially the Layton theme.
    But it fails to load my games, so I deleted it again.

    Some notes. This should have been in the readme, but i was very tired [​IMG]

    For the boxart images to work, they need to be named to match the filename of the .nds file you want to use it with. So if you have "dsision.nds" on your card, the boxart image needs to be named "dsision.nds.bmp" Same with the custom icons.

    To load commercial games (remember to only use games you have backed up yourself + check how legal it is to do that in your own country), you need to have ysmenu working on your card, it must be named "ysmenu.nds" and placed in the root of the card.

    Be sure to use the R4 version of DSision if you have an R4 (or clone) card, or else the R4 firmware will patch it wrong and it probably wont work properly. The TTDS version is the one I'm currently using on my card as the default menu, it is basically a regular .nds file, patched for the ttds and renamed. The normal version should work on most other cards.

    ITs not difficult, just unzip the dsision folder and dsision2.nds to the root of your card.

    It works with M3 Real. Homebrew works too... But how can I use custom boxarts, for DS Games? I resized them to 128x115 en saved them as a bitmap. I rnamed it too (let me say) Chrono Trigger.nds.bmp and it still says no boxart [​IMG]

    Is the filename and the image name both correct?

    e.g. chrono trigger.nds AND chrono trigger.nds.bmp ? also, did you put the boxart into the covers folder?

    Can't get it to run my games.
    I have YSMenu.nds in the root, but when I try to boot a game, it just runs YSMenu instead.

    For some reason DSision boots with no backlight :/
    And light is equal to 1 in the ini.
    But it's looking good! [​IMG]

    You also have to copy the .ini file and maybe the PICS folder, but I'm not sure of that last one.

    YSMenu works perfectly, I can run all games with it, but whenever I try to run a game via DSision, it runs YSMenu instead. THEN I can run the game via YSMenu, but I don't think that's what it is supposed to do.
