    I only have ROMs in which I own the game cartridge for such as AC:WW.

    Will Nintendo ban my DS from using the card if I play AC:WW online from my Acekard 2i? (I downloaded it, but I own the real AC:WW game cartridge. I couldn't get my dumping to work)

    Really? Someone told me you can't. Sweet! Also, how do you know they can't tell?

    They can't detect their hardware over the network, only the software.

    So what your saying is they can't detect where or how the game is being played (from my Acekard) but they can see I am playing Animal Crossing: Wild World with my friends?

    I'm not sure how it all works, but they cannot see whether or not you're using a flash cartridge.

    I play online with ROMs all the time.

    Besides, if Nintendo can't even ban the cheaters on Mario Kart, what makes you think they could ban ROMs?

    I think it's something to do with the Friendcode not being built into the ROM. It's randomly generated when you start a save file (or connect online for the first time). This means there are no issues with multiple users having the same code. There are exceptions to this such as Jam With The Band.

    I've never heard of anyone getting banned from Nintendo's wifi network.

    Even if they didn't, IF will never be supported by Flash Carts. This means it makes more sense to buy the game.

    Yeah, Ninty can't tell. I played MKDS for ages online with no problems. Well, apart from all the cheaters. [​IMG]
