    got a conventional DS, got a supercard, got a superpass2 and flashme. flashed without any troubles. booting with only the supercard yields the bootmenu. i can launch DSLinux which works without a problem. if i launch anything else ( homebrew, roms ) i end up with two white screens after the loading stage which don't go away unless i restart my ds.

    any ideas why i get white screens for anything else but DSLinux?

    have you run the roms through the supercard software?

    is that still required after flashing the ds? if so i did not. how comes DSLinux then works without? ( maybe because an OS )

    you have to patch every rom with the supercard patcher. it will become 2 files. nds.dsq and .nds.sav

    yep, with that it works now, kthx.

    i still somehow don't get how this 'save' stuff works on the supercard. looked through their manual but somehow i'm confused.

    so if i got this right you can only save the 'battery save' and no 'real time save' ( or save-state in emulators )? i'm confused why the saver menu shows 4 save slots.

    I never use the saver menu, just save in-game and it works fine.

    as a general rule, patch only commercial backups, and leave homebrew as it is. (homebrew will usually work on the ds, but for the supercard u may have to rename the .ds.gba version to .nds for some homebrew games if it doesnt run )
