I recently got my Nanoloop 1.7.6 cartridge and the USB-MIDI adapter. I've been trying for days to load ROMs on slot A and B (mGB and shitwave) and I can't get it to work.

I've tried:

- Two USB cables
- Two DMG-04 link cables
- Two GB's
- Two different ROMs and 4 versions of mGB
- Turning off all bluetooth and cellular devices (trying to eliminate interference)
- Waiting 20+ minutes after the ROM transferred from buffer.

So, I've run out of things to try.

When loading the ROMs I

- Loaded the ROM to the buffer
- Turned NL and hit "select+A" to download a ROM
- Hit "send" on the webpage
- Wait until it's done loading

....aaaaaand nothing.

Am I doing something wrong?

You could also try using the original native application for Windows or OSX. It's not linked any more, but the files are still up on the server. It might be more stable than the web version.

Another thing to check for is if the pins of the link cable are pushed into the connector, which in my experience sometimes happens because of the pressure from the MIDI adapter.

check your adaptor is the right side up.
it failed to work for me the first time i tried as i had it the wrong way round. lulz

aaaaaand I had it upside down....makes sense why the photo of the adapter plugged in is on the nlmidi page. hahah

Side note: You can make a case for the adapter out of a GB screen. The adhesive holds it all together. smile
