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.
- Launch DS ROMs from the SD card and/or flashcard, via nds-bootstrap (comes included with the app)
- Run GBA ROMs from the SD card or flashcard using GBARunner2.
- Support for multiple languages.
- Automatic on-the-fly AP-patching. Load the game and the patches should be applied if found (patching is done in RAM, leaving the original ROM untouched).
