    Is there a good set of documentation or a wiki for YSmenu?

    I recently starting running it as a replacment for the TTMENU of my TTDS and am constantly surprised by how much there is to it. For instance, I didn't know about the support for NES and GB/GBC roms until I saw a mention in an R4-related posting. Now, I've discovered, almost by accident, that I can use my old Supercard CF with YSmenu as a SRAM device.

    I'm wondering what else I'm missing out on.

    This is all I could find:

    * YSMENU
    + Copyright(C)2008 - Yasu software http://www.usay.jp/
    * What's this?
    A Custom Menu for DS FlashCards. You can boot GBA, NDS, and emulators.
    NDS Loader is same as official kernel. Now, it supports:
    - DSTT
    - AceKard2
    It will support other cards in the future.
    + Advantage
    - We can implement functions we want
    ÂÂÂÂ- Simple directory view
    ÂÂÂÂ- You can backup/restore SAV file
    ÂÂÂÂ- You can delete file
    ÂÂÂÂ- You can boot GBA/Emulators directly (Slot2 cart required)
    ÂÂÂÂ- Sleeps when DS is closed
    + Demerits
    - The Loader is same as official
    - yasu's quality
    * Install
    - for DSTT users
    Run ttextract.exe with OFFICIAL TTMENU.DAT.
    ttdldi.dat and ttpatch.dat will be extracted.
    Copy ttdldi.dat, ttpatch.dat and YSMenu.ini to TTMenu directory in TF.
    Rename my YSMENU.nds to TTMENU.DAT and copy it to TF instead of official TTMENU.DAT
    - for AceKard2 users
    Run akextract.exe with OFFICIAL akmenu4.nds. akloader.nds will be extracted.
    Copy akloader.nds and YSMenu.ini to YSMenu directory in TF.
    Rename my YSMENU.nds to akmenu4.nds and copy it to TF instead of official akmenu4.nds
    - r4 users?
    hint: ttextract.exe with dstt official ttmenu.dat and r4tf.dldi...
    it is just experimental
    + Common installation
    Change [YSMENU]LITERALS in YSMenu.ini if you use in English or another language.
    (erase a semi-cron)
    If you use non-ASCII characters (ex. Japanese),
    Put next files for an encoding which you use to YSMenu directory.
    (system.fon) system.ank system.u2l system.l2u
    Put next files to YSMenu directory if you want/need/use.
    goomba.gba PocketNES.gba hvca.gba YSMenu1.bmp YSMenu2.bmp
    * Usage
    Select a file and Press A to launch.
    Press X to delete the file.
    @ NDS
    ÂÂÂÂPress Y to select cheat codes.
    @ GBA
    ÂÂÂÂPress Y to just load GBA to PSRAM in slot2
    Press START to use PassMe function or to boot slot2 GBA.
    If there is DEFAULT.NDS in microSD, it will be load automatically.
    Press B to stop it.

    Press SELECT until you see the save files. Then press A on the save file and it'll build a backup. To restore a backup, to the same thing but on a .BAK file.
