Check here on how to update TWiLight Menu++.

Includes nds-bootstrap v0.21.2.

What's new?

  • Just realizing last month was the 2nd Anniversary of TWLMenu++'s release, the 2nd Anniversary text is now added to the splash screen.
  • Since some releases, TWLMenu++ now starts with TWL touch mode again!
    This means touch input in DScraft, portalDS, DSx86, S8DS, etc. now works again, without the need for DSiWarehax!
  • A new way of detecting if the homebrew is DSi-Enhanced/compatible has been added!
    Homebrew such as DSDoom, DScraft, portalDS, DSx86, S8DS, fwTool, etc. will no longer need Direct boot manually enabled.
  • Box art in .bmp format are no longer supported, and has been replaced with box art in .png format.
  • DSi/3DS themes: A message has been added for if save creation gets stuck.
  • Added direct access support for Acekard 2i cards with the banner of Hello Kitty no Panda Sports Stadium.
  • For the flashcard save path, you can now pick between the flashcard itself or the console's SD card (only if the app is running on the console's SD card).
    Default is flashcard.
  • R4 theme: Black screens are now shown when starting the R4 theme.
  • A message is now shown when launching a Sega Master System/Game Gear game.
  • DSi, 3DS, and R4 theme: Some extra sub-themes have moved to Themes.7z.

Improvements

  • When pressing the POWER button on the DSi (if TWLMenu++ is running in DSi mode), it now immediately restarts TWLMenu++ itself, instead of rebooting the console.
  • 3DS theme: The frame rate of the rotating cubes video has been increased from 24fps to 50fps!

Bug fixes

  • DSiWare versions of WarioWare Touched and Famicom Wars DS 2, are now properly detected as DSiWare.
  • DSiWare booting should now be stabilized.
  • Fixed the homebrew exit feature not working in homebrew (such as Rocket Video Player, nesDS, GameYob, S8DS, etc.).
  • AP warning message is no longer shown for Frozen: Olaf's Quest, and Plants vs Zombies.

Known bug

  • 3DS theme: When the rotating cubes video plays, scrolling in the game list may cause crackles in the BGM.
    This only occurs when TWLMenu++ is running in DS mode.

You no longer need to hold L for the following games to work

  • Bolt
  • Feel the Magic: XY XX
  • The Rub Rabbits!
  • Shrek the Third
  • Tony Hawk's Proving Ground

    The iwramcache version is set by default. Set it to the regular version, if some GBA games aren't working.

  • If you're running TWLMenu++ on a flashcard, the default boot option has been reverted to flashcard firmware.

Bug fixes

  • The DS WiFi Settings app is now detected as DSiWare, instead of homebrew.
  • Loaded DLDI driver is now retained on modern homebrew launched from the SD card.
  • Fixed long-standing bug where if the last played ROM is on a flashcard, and your current location is the SD card, launching the last played ROM would try to be booted from the SD card, and vice-versa.
  • Themes that aren't Acekard (because it already had the fix):
    SNEmulDS now uses NTR clock speed to avoid sound issues, and jEnesisDS now uses TWL clock speed.
