    My Supercard DSTwo was working just fine on my OG 3DS but then I updated my software on the 3DS to play some games. Ever since then I get this message ""An error has occurred. Press and hold the POWER Button to turn the system off. Please refer to the Operations Manual for details" whenever I try to run it. I thought updating the firmware to 1.20 might help but I can't even do that! I loaded the software onto it but the Supercard won't even boot up! What do I do? Please help!

    Find a DSLITE to update your Supercard.

    You need to download the firmware update file and use a system that will allow you to access the dstwo menu. In order works a Ds lite or any other system that does not have 6.0 version installed on it...

    Once you have added the upgrade file to your sd card and run the dstwo on the system press A on the box you will get saying to update your card...

    Thanks! I just did that and it works now! Is it true that the Supercard can run 3DS games now as well?

    No. Anything you've read about supercard or acekard or whoever making a 3DS cart has been made up.

    Thanks again!

    Okay, since its up and running again I just tried to get Catsfc running on it. DS games seem to work fine and I followed the installation directions to the T but Catsfc doesnt even show up in the menu. Is it me or is it the program?

    It needs to be put in a specific location, the folder needs to be in the root and the plugin needs to be in the plugin folder.

    Place catsfc.plg, catsfc.bmp, and catsfc.ini in the _dstwoplug folder of your DSTWO. Place the CATSFC folder in your dstwo's root folder (the one that contains _dstwo, _dstwoplug, etc).

    Here are the instructions. I followed the directions to the dot and it isnt working. I just get the DS_GAME icon and thats it. Does it not work on 3DS?

    EDIT:
    But I dont have a _dstwoplug folder. I have a _dstwo folder. I think thats the root because its the main folder. Inside that folder is a plug folder which is where I put the plugins. Since I posted this I thought that maybe the software required a _dstwoplug folder so I opted to make one, put the plugins in that and then try it. It still doesnt work, all I get is the DS_GAME icon.

    It works fine, take a screenshot of the folder setup.

    The root is the first directory that pops up when you plug your microsd in.

    It should look like this

    _dstwo
    _dstwoplug

    So there is two folders

    the _dstwoplug folder doesn't exist by default. Just create one.

    Here it is. I put it back to the way it was originally to show that and now I have it back to the _dstwoplug folder.

    Okay, Ill try it again.

    EDIT:
    _dstwoplug folder doesnt work. Just tried it.

    yeah, _dstwoplug needs to be next to _dstwo, not inside it.

    Thanks! I did that and it works like a charm! Is there any way to modify the screen though? In Ogre Battle the words get chopped off on the bottom of the screen. I didn't see any video settings in the options menu that helped out but I might be wrong.

    Tap the bottom screen to go to the settings.
