    Hey guys,

    Have used your website a lot in learning to homebrew my DSI. I've installed twilight menu and the NDS and Gameboy games work fine, I have however added a bios.bin to my root and GBArunner doesn't work properly. It doesn't allow me to select any roms when it boots up and stays white on both screens.

    I've tried adding the Arm7 DLDI by replacing my boot.nds file with it to no avail. Any one got any idea? The bios i found was from a youtube video so not convinced it's a working one.

    Thanks
    Matt

    Hello.:)

    Did you format your SD Card correctly with FAT32/Standard Cluster Size ?

    Thank you.:)

    Hey Dude!

    Thanks for your reply. Yes my memory card is a 16gb in FAT32.

    Checked the MD5 for the bios and it appears to be fine. White screen continuing on GBArunner however, no rom list/folders as it should look. :(

    Thank you for checking this.:)

    Please compare with this:
    The BIOS used should have the following checksums (checking one should be enough):
    • CRC32: 81977335
    • MD5: a860e8c0b6d573d191e4ec7db1b1e4f6
    • SHA1: 300c20df6731a33952ded8c436f7f186d25d3492
    • SHA256: fd2547724b505f487e6dcb29ec2ecff3af35a841a77ab2e85fd87350abd36570
    The Roms are placed in the Folder "gba" in the Root of your SD Card and has the Extension .gba.

    Thank you.:)

    Thanks for your comments Alexander, I haven't the facility to check anything but the MD5 in terminal but this matches as it should. The roms are indeed in the gba folder as is a gbarunner2.ini file.

    Is there something simple I'm missing?

    backup the files before, and copy them back to the SD after formatting.

    Gba roms should go in the gba folder. Not the _gba folder. Furthermore, are you using macos? Someone else had problems when they copied files using macos so maybe that's the problem?
