My dad is an actual computer teacher. He can build computers. He fixed it. After tinkering with file locations, as well as emulations settings and 3D rendering I was able to not only get it to load the rom, but load the home menu as well. My issue is solved. Thank you for helping.

Well then by all reasons it should be working and it isn't. So Ive borrowed my brothers low quality laptop. Its a hybrid of 32 bit Win and some kind of Lunix. IDK my dad reprogrammed it, savaging it after it got a virus. I could ask him I'll be visiting him for the Holliday. Anyway, I loaded Desmume's 32 bit version and the roms on the laptop but the roms are cause the program to crash. I can't open any of the games I need to.

Hum the 3DS was a long shot to try to find correct firmware, Are you sure about the file size?

Okay I have my 3DS SD card loaded on my Mac, Can I find a compatible firmware file there? A search yields no file by that name.

My firmware file is 262KB! I can't find another source to download the firmware though...

No, its still not working... just loads directly to the game. What about the Slot manger? or other settings? Such as general and 3D rendering under Emulation?

I really can't think of much else, I could screen shot all my settings, or alternatively list them to see if you think any are interfering with the process. oh, what about the folder set up? Is it need to be in a special order or location? I simply created one master file in applications for desmume and al related files. The very last thing I can think of is, there isn't any file to click to start up with to open the home menu huh? Like, when I want to play any of the roms, I can just open the file directly. You can't do that with the home menu, right? You just have to open the app its self? Because if there is a file to open it, I don't have it.

All options in the the BIOS and Firmware section of the Emulation tab of preferences are active and checkable. I still believe it may be the files... they wouldn't load the way I downloaded them. The ARM9 & ARM7 were .rom files and the program refused to select them. I changed the extension to .bin and they were accepted.

I'm using DeSmuME v0.9.11 Binaries for Macintosh Should I try using DeSmuME v0.9.10? My operating system is OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

#11 Re: Technical » Running the DS Home Menu on Mac? » 2016-12-15 22:57:09

Yes that box is checked. Is it possible I have the incorrect files? I had to search very hard to find them, and each source had a different info on how to use and install them. I could not find any BIOSnds or firmware directly corresponding with the site. I could try to take it directly from my DSi, but my SD card is synced with my 3DS now...

Hello I am a new user, working on Mac only. I need to be able to run the DS menu before each Rom startup. I have loaded the BIOSnds7 & BIOSnds9 files, as well as firmware file. I looked all over for further instructions, but searches yield outdated discussions, and your only relevant link under homebrew in the knowledge base is dead. (I know little about Howmbrew, except that it can be used as a home software, in addition to develpining your own softwares) I need to know right away if it is possible for me to run the rom from the home menu. Otherwise I will seek a different emulator or abandon my emulator search all together. I only need this for a presentation, and I already have a back up plain. So let me stress although it is not critical that this issue be solved, it is critical that it be answered as if it is a possibility.

Thank you in advanced for your help.
