Tips For Testing ROMs #

If testing for a specific reported bug #

  • Replicate the steps as close as possible
  • If there are any differences (such as nds-bootstrap version, system used, or settings changed), make sure to include that in your report
  • Feel free to ask the original reporter for more details (such as uploading a save file or any missing information) if possible
  • If there is no solution, make sure to update the compatibility list

If a ROM has an issue after updating nds-bootstrap #

  • Find which specific version first introduced this issue
  • You can downgrade nds-bootstrap by downloading a past release and following the update instructions
  • Downgrading to a past release of TWiLight Menu++ might be needed as well

If testing for a ROM that has no known issues or has not been tested before #

  • Be thorough with testing the ROM, going through anything that other users might see
  • Make sure to add the appropriate information on the compatibility list on the correct sheet
  • Also make sure to remove games that have been tested off of the Testing Queue sheet

If testing to update blacklists #

  • Change only the blacklisted options, these being: 133 MHz (TWL) CPU Speed, Card Read DMA, and Asynch Card Read
  • To enable blacklisted options in the per-game settings, go to sd:/_nds/TWiLightMenu/settings.ini and set IGNORE_BLACKLISTS to 1
  • If there are any issues caused when turning on these settings, please report them on the Github issues page
