TWiLight Menu works fine but I would like to try to get two certain foreign games to work.


One is the Japanese stitch jam 2 it gets through the tutorial and then hangs.

The other is Taiko no Tatsujin DS - Dororon! Yokai Daikessen! a little rhythm game about a drum. It gets to the main menu after name entry and then select a mode it goes back to the main menu.

Is there a setting or tweak I could possibly do to get them to work ? I tried to use ds scene rom tool for ap but it doesn't detect it's needed for obvious reasons I'm sure.

If it's just a foreign rom compatibility issue it's fine.

Huh ok go figure. Some reason my ap patch tool didn't work it was a repack first thing that came up for me before.

But yours you linked was slightly different and yeah the games worked. Much appreciated !

btw, manual AP-patching isn't needed now.
You can use the clean (non-repacked) ROMs now.

Oh ! Ok it had been a month or so old version.
Honestly ap patching wasn't a big deal for me but cool add in for your app/product ! Props to you as a developer for checking out a post.

    It could get banned from PSN but you can change your ID I think?

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

    For your R4
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's old but it's the best firmware out for DS stuff
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    it says it only works for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com) and Acekard R.P.G.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    nvm it does support mine

    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Slightly slower loading but a bit more convenient
