    I've seen someone say on here that ZXDS works with TWLoader, but for the life of me I cannot get it to work. I run it, the ZXDS loading screen pops up and... That's it.

    Does anyone know a way to get this working properly on my N3DS? (Fully A9LH'ed etc...)

    I've tried asking on Reddit but never get an answer so hoping someone here can possibly help as it's frustrating as hell.

    try using master branch of bootstrap 0.0.3 and the latest one on master branch, (you'll haveto rename it once downloaded release-bootstrap.nds) either one should have better Homebrew Compatibility

    Don't have time to try any of this now but THANK YOU! THINGS TO TRY!

    Electimon: The latest version on the official site.

    Will be success or failure after I've been to bed.

    Only issue with that is my entire collection of Speccy stuff isn't in SNA format. Good fallback but ZXDS is such a good and developed emulator...

    Also the other thing is where the hell do I put the directories on the SD card?

    Just pulling this back up, I guess nothing new happened in between? Only good ZX emulator is ZXDS run from a flashcart?

    There's FUSE in the retroarch builds but ZXDS has more features and is easier to work with from my experience with it. Also FUSE seems to overwrite the game and watch retroarch core from the same builds.

    Thanks. But yeah, guess I'll stick to running ZXDS off flashcart. Just wish it could be updated and made installable as cia.
