Yes. Ignore the fact it says to extract the DSONEi folder in the instructions, it's a copy and paste error. You need the "R4i-SDHC YsMenu" folder for your card.

Also don't worry about getting it wrong. It won't do any harm, it just won't work till you use the correct files.

I've collected a variety of cards the last year or so... It's interesting tinkering with them and seeing what each card can do. :)

my fave will always be the 2015 snoopy but its almost a hard to find r4 i bought it years ago and used it with cheats btw if you need a cheat database for your r4 i can upload mine

@AnotherMuggle r4 cart is here alongside my dsixl took some effort to get it working i followed the guide but the cheats didnt work for any of my games the only way cheats would work is if i dual boot so i load my primary kernel then load ysmenu it works tho so im happy thanks for all the help

    like an sd card slot extension thing?

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    Yeah, to load from (and save data to) an SD card plugged into the serial port.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    You test that extension thing through a regular usb reader on your pc? Could just be a shit one. Bought one for my 3d printer and it just straight up doesn't work

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/
