    I'm just wondering what (if any) emus support this so I can play do 2 player. If any support multicart play, don't need to mention it since I have only one flash cart. Any system is okay.

    None that I am aware of. Apparently it is too hard to sync up too DSes that use a wireless connection. I guess the connection is rather unstable and slow.

    So basically you're wondering if you can connect a DS to a PC? I don't think that's possible.

    Edit: Sorry I misunderstood the topic creator. And there are ways to connect a DS to a PC obviously, but not a DS to a DS emulator running on the PC.

    Thanks for the answer Granville. And DeMoN, I was meaning DS to DS. Some official DS games have single cart play where the game downloads data to other systems for multiplayer.

    Somebody should mention this at some point I guess. Even if it was feasible to run networked emulated games on DSes (which it probably isn't), you'd also have to get around the DS's RSA checks, which it performs whenever you use Download Play, unless you have FlashMe installed.

    Well, yeah, you could install flashme. Not too hard. But still, I doubt it'd ever happen. It's just too much work for something like this.

    Didn't know about that RSA check. Thats a shame. Would have been cool if this could be implemented in an emulator but guess it will never happen.

    I see what you mean now, and it's impossible since the other DS needs to have a flash card or something to bypass the checks (as was mentioned earlier).

    There was a article to turn your PC into a DS Download Station. Can;t find it though.
