Is it just me or has the YASU Menu issues with several games with download play? I've tried Yoshi Touch & Go with both systems but YASU doesn't work. There only appears a blank screen with the Nintendo logo on it.

Does anybody has the same problem as I do?

Its a known issue.

If you give the official TTMENU.DAT file a .NDS extension, you can boot it from within YASU's menu whenever you need to use download play.

How can I give the official TTMENU.DAT file a .NDS extension? I tried rename it but don't work.
"Doesn't work"? You should be able to simply rename it in Explorer (assuming you're using Windows). Make sure "Hide known file extensions" is unchecked in your folder options.

Will the renaming tecnique work with other kinds of firmware too, like r4 or supercard?

No - at least in the case of starting them on the bare metal rather than manually as a .nds from either the official or the Yasu loader. Some sets of firmware, in particular those derived from Moonshell rather than built from scratch, may have enough DLDI support still left in them by accident to allow you to start them manually, but I wouldn't bet on it and you'd still not be able to load commercial roms with them as their loaders/patchers would be designed with different hardware and different patching strategies in mind.

I managed to rename the file but when I'm opening it the dldi patching doesn't work. At least the patching lasts for a very long time.

    some of the best selling games on the switch are wii u ports (that are priced way too high

    @ColdBlitz, i forgot breath of the wild released for the Wii u
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    $60 for a game that's a decade old might be unheard of on PC but actually is not uncommon on consoles

    especially Nintendo because they only ever lower the price of games when they do a greatest hits/platinum hits/players choice re-release
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, and the HD collections released for 7th gen consoles too
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but they don't seem to have done any of those for the switch yet and maybe never will
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    I think we all forgot breath of the wild released for the wii u tbh

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, tbh the HD collections are more justified since they include more than just 1 game per copy
