Hey all, was wondering if anybody is having problems getting download play to work with certain games? I am running the 4.06 loader and have had a few games that don't work with download play so far:

Big Brain Academy
Clubhouse Games

I've tried them with the "Single Card Play" function both enabled and disabled and no luck. Some games like Mario Party and Puzzle de Harvest Moon work but I was hoping that the download play loader update would have fixed these. Anybody having the same experience?

For the record I am using a flashme v.8 (no auto-boot) black DS Lite. When I give my RPG to somebody else and run download play from their DS to mine it works fine, just not the other way around.

I am not sure I follow, you said the DL play works for the above but want them fixed?


Anyway, ya, the RPG does not have 100% DL play but close to it. Flashed DSs have very good DL play compatibility that's why yours works.

Sorry, what I meant was that some games like Mario Party and Puzzle de Harvest Moon have working DL play but other games like Big Brain Academy and Clubhouse Games don't have working DL play (at least for me.)

And yes, Mario Party DL play works

Crap, I just remembered, when I played multiplayer Mario Party it was with a friend with an R4 who had Mario Party already, we didn't actually do download play

Sorry to get your hopes up.

Haven't actually tested Mario Party's DL play

GBAtemp review said:
We have tested the following games that support Download Play, and here are our results:

Pass:
42 All-Time Classics / Club House Games
Big Brain Academy

Bomberman Land Touch!
New Super Mario Bros.
Point Blank DS
Super Mario 64 DS
Super Monkey Ball DS
Tetris DS
Snowboard Kids SBK
Yoshi Touch & Go
Zoo Keeper

Fail:
None

As you can see, the Acekard R.P.G. (as of loader version 4.04) has support for download play in the handful that we've tested; a rather pleasant result.
Both of those games seem to pass GBAtemp's test, so maybe it's the 4.06 or just yours.

I recently got my R.P.G, and I can't get download play to work either.
I couldn't get Mario Kart DS or Metroid Prime Hunters to work, they would both hang after the black and white Nintendo logo.

Man, is it really that serious? Crap! I can't believe I am saying this but I probably should have gone with something else with 100% DL play. Speaking of which, what besides cyclo has 100% DL play? SCDS1?

Can anyone confirm if this is a 4.06 firmware thing, a flashme thing, or something else? I don't use download play that much so it isn't that big of a deal to me, but it would be nice to see it working.

I beleive this is a 4.06 thing, it will probably be fixed in the next update.
Either way, I'm happy with my purchase, while it does have a few bugs that are yet to be sorted out, overall it is a pretty good loader, I cant think of any other loaders which have file management functions.

I'll have to second that, very happy with my RPG despite the small bugs. The dual storage / file management options are awesome.

I guess I won't make judgments before it even arriving. I just wish it would arrive already!!!!

PS: Does a flashed DS really have better DL play compatibility when it is the receiving one? I just tried this with MKDS and MPH and lots of other stuff but none worked even when I switched to my flashed DS.

Plus it looks sexy. Seriously, if I was a flash cart, I would have sex with my RPG.
If the receiving DS is flashed, it will work, because flashme removes the RSA verification. Whether the DS with the flash card is flashed or not makes no difference.
Hey golden, how long has it been since you ordered yours? Mine got hrer in 10 business days (14 regular). Maybe you should post something on the BambooGaming forums.

Looked through AceKard's forum and I'm wondering if this is an issue for other people and if the team is aware of it. Although from what I can read, there aren't many posts about 4.06. I still don't really understand how some games's download play works and others not.

Bamboogaming takes longer to ship to the US. I'm still waiting on my RPG and hoping it will come before the New Year.

I live in US. According to Bamboo it was shipped on the 13th of December. Hopefully will get here soon. Can wait!
