    I owe it to the community. I'm still waiting for Lost Future to arrive (they sent the US version in error so I sent it back to be replaced) and if it wasn't for this site I wouldn't have a save with all the puzzles downloaded.

    Do we know anything about Heroes of Mana?

    I connected to Wifi weeks before the shutdown, but it didn't have any maps for me to download. They might have been long gone before then or I might have needed to progress further in the story for them to be available.

    I'm fairly sure all DS DLC is on the altwfc.com test server.

    Heroes of Mana is missing from altwfc. It might have used it's own servers or something, I just don't know.

    Check if the Wi-fi is working for that game.
    Other Wi-Fi third-party games were confirmed to be working after the shutdown, so you never know.

    As I said I had before the shutdown, but there was no content to download.

    I don't know if you have to progress the story or what to get the download missions and maps to show up.

    Is anyone familiar with the game?

    This is all I could find from a FAQ online:
    [WIFI] Wifi Rewards

    0050P (Title) Rabite Feeder
    0050P (Finger) Nails of Reason
    0100P (Title) Rabite Breeder
    0100P (Arm) Hellfire Gloves
    0150P (Title) Rabite Master
    0150P (Finger) Rabite Tear
    0200P (Title) Handyman
    0200P (Neck) Ifrit Crest
    0250P (Title) Ranger
    0250P (Ring) Black Rose Ring

    Rewards are tied to your rank or something.

    The folks here seem to have preserved almost everything pretty well.

    Only thing I see missing is Heroes of Mana, which I still don't understand how it works exactly..

    side question but did N+ for NDS have any downloadable levels? The community section of the NDS and PSP games were shut down back in 2009.

    Nice. What about Worms: Open Warfare 2 and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing? I doubt those are popular, just curious.

    I have a save file for the latter game with the online-only achievements unlocked, if anyone's interested. A few other minor achievements are unlocked too.

    by the way I have about half of the miniland mayhem(i believe that's it) challenges puzzles and the user submitted puzzles on save files are they needed? and if so what's the best way to submit them?

    P.S. does anyone know an easy way to remove the wifi settings information from the save files as I'm super paranoid and don't want to manually go through the like 8 save files taht i did containing the challenge puzzles and user submitted levels.

    Edit: Also seriously that was tedious as fuck, I got the save files and if I was thinking I would've kept doing it but I just about lostmy mind. I have ~50% of the total user submitted puzzles and the challenge puzzles admittedly ti's not all of them but I do have them. I just wish there was some way to remove the wifi settings without manually doing it.

    Edit 2: I couldn't manage to get desmume to run, and my router was shit and my android phone wouldn't let me contribute pcaps for whatever reason.

    I tried all of the bundles but they wouldn't connect to wifi and even if they ran it ran at 1fps on my gtx 485m, and i7

    edit again: I also have a full set of dsiware mario game's dlc nintendo and top rated ones.

    OK here's about half of the top rated levels and challenges I tried to keep them to one challenge per save file but sometimes it overlapped but anyway here you guys go. They're all named the same "n" with no puzzles defeated and that's it.

    I hope you guys can get the dlc from it, the first one in set 1 has the nintendo levels since I didn't know that they were already out there but I hope it helps you guys out since you already have some levels out there. Admittedly it's not going to help with sharing levels over wifi but at least you can let people dowload them.

    In the Picross DS compilation it seems like the save for Mario's Super Picross is the same puzzles from Mario's Picross, did I miss something?

    They have different puzzles for me. Are you sure you are importing the save file correctly?

    Can't a patch be made for MvsDk dsi?

    I have 83 downloaded levels in this game, should I submit these somewhere?

    Just make a back up of them. DSi games are not cracked at the time.

    I guess I can make some level maps with the info from the info screen written on them, even better if I had a sprite rip.
    DSi games can be opened up with DSi SRL Extracter, can't they?

    does anyone have any downloaded user created levels for Metanet's N+? I am playing the DS game on my 3DS and would love to be able to play some community created levels which are no longer available.... I can download levels for the PC. Wish there was a way to import them into my save game file for the 3ds..

    EDIT: To clarify, I am hoping to edit the save game file in order to incorporate various community levels made by users. This is a little different than other games with downloadable content... The 3rd party company who was licensed to distribute the game is out of business. However, there are so many user created levels for the PC and xbox etc. that I am thinking if it is possible to edit the save game file, I can import level data from those user created levels if no one was able to download the Nintendo DS user levels before wifi direct was shut down...

    Please let me know if anyone has attempted this already.
