TWiLight Menu++, often abbreviated to "TWL Menu++", is an open-source DSi Menu upgrade/replacement for the Nintendo DSi, the Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo DS flashcarts. It can launch Nintendo DS, SNES, NES, GameBoy (color), GameBoy Advance, TurboGrafX-16, XEGS, Atari 2600, 5200 and 7800 games, as well as Sega GameGear/Master System & Mega Drive/Genesis ROMs, as well as DSTWO plugins (if you use a DSTWO) and videos. It can be used as a frontend for either nds-bootstrap or supported flashcarts.

- Run GBA ROMs from the SD card or flashcard using GBARunner2.
- Support for multiple languages.

SNEmulDS: Some games cannot load as they are know as Large Roms. Sometimes games do not work at all as the emulator is still a work in progress.
jEnesisDS: The screen will always be too wide for the DS screen due to it's Aspect Ratio. It cannot be changed.
DS games in 133MHz mode: The overclock can cause issues or crashes in some games
