Up until recently, Advance wars days of ruin would load normally and has been doing so for the past 5 months. Now i constantly get a "loading D:\..........days of ruin.nds FAILED." message. I am using the 0.9.11 x86 version of desmune, all files extracted to my desktop. I tried downloading other versions of desmune and other copies of the game, but to no avail. What causes this message?
your security software has updated to break your system, or the file has become corrupted and you arent downloading the right things, or you aren't creating a clean enough environment when testing your newly downloaded things (for example, youre pasting new files on top of old files, some bunch of which are broken). Do a completely clean environment and start porting your files over to it til you find the one that's broken.
Also you may find more info in the log window if you use a _dev build of desmume
