Did you installed "DSImenu++launcher"?? If you didn't, then go to the robz8 page and download and install either the .cia or .3dsx version. Then you'll be able to launch (you have to install 3 cias, not only 2. The 2 cias that came with the pack plus the DSIMenu++ launcher which can be downloaded from the robz8's quoted link from github)
Ok got it working, it is way way faster then TWLoader, menu is way better, and cleaner, TWLoader is like a really bad bad version compared to this, every game works better then before.

Nice. Btw, UI is way faster than TWLoader. Games improvements are because of bootstrap, not because of DM++

DSIMenu++ runs like a charm! UI is more slick and less complex too. I've got two questions about it.

1. Is there a way to play installed DSIware (from eShop) on this? I have Photo Dojo installed on my 3DS.

2. Can I screen record in DS/DSi mode? I'm wanting to manually replicate a particle effect from Photo Dojo, because I have zero knowledge on how to browse the ROM data, so I want to re-create it from direct footage. (Unless somebody could teach me how to browse the ROM to find said particle effect, which would be a huge help.)

Nope. You can only do this on DSi.

Nope, you can't capture the screen in DS/DSi mode.

You mean like decompile a .nds rom into its individual decrypted files?
There's a Windows add-on that allows seeing property details for games.
As for rom editing, that's another rabbit hole...

I downloaded a Photo Dojo (EUR, AUS) Nds file. Won't open on DSIMenu++. Why?
Also thanks TurdPooCharger for the Rom Editing advice. I tried editing it with Tinke and inside the nds it has .szs files. Not sure how to edit them.

    it's better to learn on your own, it goes much faster than the snail pace they teach you at in school

  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job

  • Coto @ Coto:
    with that all your assembler base will actually work

    even on embedded systems, without a damned debugger

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly

    llshit points as usual you make. Not only because you have no idea what you're talking about, but also because there is proof (both i've seen and maintained) in regards to C and hand-written assembler code, and the speed gain is simply over half the framerate.

    gbaemu4ds's C ARM and THUMB CPU emulator and GBARunner2's ARM and THUMB handcoded assembly. Just run Yoshi's Island GBA and compare it by yourself.

    or SnemulDS's C CPU Core vs SnemulDS SnezziDS ARM core. The first running at about 45% (half the speed) vs ~105% (full speed)

    yeah, keep believing -Ofast will make everything faster.
