Umm ik this started ages ago, and I may not get a response but I wanna try anyway. I have a rom of a gb game that got to be downloadable via dsi ware (I'm just noting that cause I think that means it's a dlc thing) that I need to decrypt and ofc I have no idea how to do that.. there is no decrypted version of it (at least that I could find of, yes I searched) it was already hard af to find the file itself.. please send help :cry:

DSiWare games are not compatible with Drastic, only regular Nintendo DS games.

If you want to play DSiWare you'll need to use No$GBA on a PC as its the only emulator that does support it, and requires some extra setup for DSiWare (There are tutorials).
