Installation

Note: To use this emulator, you will need to prepare the compatible BIOS (tos102fr.img or other bios) and have to be renamed to tos.bin.

DLDI patch the .nds file and place it to the root directory of your card.

Create a roms folder in the root of your card, inside that folder create another folder called st.

Copy the BIOS file tos.bin and disks to the /roms/st/.

Disks have to be in .st format, there is a .msa to .st converter for those who would like multiple disk loaded but not in .st format, it is available here.
