    Well, when I go to the ingame menu on my Cyclo, it has a text reader greyed out.

    How do I use this?

    Have the text you want in a .txt file, name it the same as the filename of the ROM you want to use it with and put it in a folder called "TEXT" at the root of your MicroSD.

    Chrono_Tata is correct. The text file has to be named the same as the game rom's name.

    Example:
    "Retro Game Challenge USA 3377.nds" (this is the game rom)
    "Retro Game Challenge USA 3377.txt" (this is the game text file)

    Also, I can't remember if this is standard or not, but I have all my text files in a seperate directory "/text" that is on the root directory. If you want your text files in a different directory, you'll have to edit the /CycloDS/config.xml file. Specifically the following line.
    CODE/TEXTJust change /TEXT to whatever directory you want your CycloDS to look in for text files.

    In relation to the text files, you can pick up LineBreaker (by ParticleMan) to reformat the TXT files for better viewing on the DS' screen.
