Games & Music Compatibility

I have recently come into posession of a GnM to test on thanks to TheMikaus on the gbadev forums. As a result, I've figured out why it needs to be renamed to bootme.nds in order to function. Also, after fiddling and talking to chishm, I realized that booting with the Chishm loader works IF you are using version 1 of the dldi. For all of you out there where booting doesn't work or works partially, grab the new load.bin from the post below this, and patch with version 1 of the dldi (available off of my wiki or on the dldi wiki) and you should be set with booting.

Updated Loading Stub

Anyone who has any card by Datel, as well as Supercard One users (and anyone else who has trouble booting in DSOrganize for that matter) should try this new load.bin from chishm. Please place it in the /DSOrganize/resources/ directory on top of the old one, and make sure your default bootloader is the Chishm loader (in configuration). This should fix the issue with hanging touchscreens and such, but I'm not 100% positive. Please leave feedback.

New Update, Computer Issues, etc...

First order of business: There is a new update to DSOrganize. I have entered the GBAX 2007 competition with an update to DSOrganize (2.8 GBAX). If you want to grab the entry, head to the GBAX site and scroll to my entry. If you want the source or to see what's changed, head to my site. Major features include overall better support for websites as well as bookmarks on the browser, and url capturing and colors support on IRC. Several other minor fixes have been applied.

Second order of business: My pc fried a week ago. I ordered a new PC dispite not being able to afford one, and have dipped into college savings. I feel sleezy for begging for donations, but I have never asked before and really can't afford this PC. So, I'm asking anyone who enjoyed the software to donate to me at this time. The cost was $800 for the PC, the external cases to make my current drives work with it, and the additional ram to bring it up to the memory capacity my current one had. However, a week after ordering, I have been emailed to tell that my PC is on backorder (why they couldn't tell me this a week ago, I don't know). I am going to pick out a different one today and hope to have it at the same price, but it might be more expensive. Here's to hoping I can work something out, because DSDev on a 1.3GHz celeron laptop with 256MB of ram is extremely painful.

UPDATE: I have recieved $150 in donations from several kind people, but I still have a long way to go before I can afford this computer. If you have spare change, send it my way!
