so I've got a problem here and found no thread about it.

I downloaded melonDS 0.6b just now to try it out.

I used dsbf_dump to dump the firmware and got BIOSNDS7.ROM, BIOSNDS9.ROM and FW95476B.BIN, which I renamed to bios7.bin, bios9.bin and firmware.bin respectively. I dumped it twice to make sure, the dump seems proper.

this much got me past the [no bios/firmware] error message and melonDS boots properly, but I get a pointlessly white screen when trying to run the firmware or a ROM, and nothing happens.

I tried running a older revision of melonDS to have the console tell me what the hell is going on. I slapped everything on C:\ and this is what I get.

your firmware is 128K (DSi firmware, seeing as console type is 0x57), which is a problem in older melonDS versions, but was fixed in 0.5

you can try grabbing the source and building a DebugFast build, I guess

also: try sticking the ROMs in a subfolder? maybe it doesn't like them being in C:\ because it fails to create a savefile or whatever

ooh right, my bad. I was never told it doesn't support DSi firmware. should've figured.

I had to tinker with my flashcart to run on a DS Lite, but melonDS works with the firmware flawlessly. thanks!

does the DSi firmware still cause trouble with latest melonDS, tho? because it shouldn't

(ie. does latest melonDS also run when given the DSLite firmware?)

DSL firmware works on both, DSi firmware works for none of 'em. is there actual support for DSi fw?

also putting stuff on C:/ was to make the path shorter for test and screenshot. I do avoid putting spaces in paths but better make sure.

DSi firmware should allow booting games with direct boot enabled, you just can't run the firmware.
