    I'm trying to get my DSI to work like my bedroom clock and display the time in big numbers. So far, the only way I seem to be able to do that is to have the alarm enabled. Is there a way to have the DSI top screen be a large clock without having the alarm set? Or do I have to buy one of the Animal Crossing or Mario clocks in DSware?

    Thanks

    I've not seen anything in the settings for a large clock, so you might have to get one of those or make do with the small one in the top right...[​IMG]

    Do you suppose they got rid of the large clock so they could make people buy the DSiWare clocks?

    when moonshell goes into 'power saving mode' the screensaver displays a large clock. You'll need a flashcard though.

    Doesn't the pictochat main menu have a calendar and a clock?

    Going purely from memory, I don't believe it does.

    Oh, my bad, I meant the DS download play menu, since it reverts back to the old DS mode when it's searching. Got them both confused.

    I do remember that that mode does, yes, though it slipped my mind until you just mentioned it. The clock does appear there.

    Check for some homebrew for the DS to do that, I'm almost positive I've seen more than one.
