    Only Hybrid games (DS & DSi) work in DS mode on a flashcard on a DSi

    If a game has DSi features but can work on a DS then when you launch it from a flashcard it will disable the DSi enhanced features. (I.E no Poster feature in Assasin's Creed II, no Picture-to-Facepic feature in RPGMakerDS, No Video Livecaster feature in Pokemon Black & White.)

    This does suck though as I wanted to play Photo Showdown. Guess not enough people care about hacking the DSi. [​IMG]

    so how would i know if a dsi game is going to work?



    and what do you mean dsi enhanced is that different form a dsi game?



    so dsi enhanced games work they just disable the enhancement but dsi games dont work?


    also will the dsi enhanced games work on a dsi ?

    ??

    dsi enhanced games are ds games with enhanced features(also known as extra features) for dsi user
    a dsi games is made for the dsi only, because you need the dsi features to play the game

    DSi Enhanced will work on all DS's. Just change the extension to .nds.
    DSi Only game won't work on any flashcart atm.

    If it NEEDS the camera to function, then it's a DSi game (as only the DSi has the camera) and will not work.

    Don't kill me for bumping, but have flash carts been able to run off of dsi mode yet?

    I heard about this game being released (http://diehardgamefan.com/2009/10/21/hands-on-preview-system-flaw-dsi/) and apparently it's a dsi only game which is suppose to make it somewhat easier to get the dsi unlocked.

    Seeing as the answer is probably no, would flash carts running off of mode be a big event where threads will be made? and will you have to buy a whole new flashcart, or will an akaio update work?

    The thread got off topic to this discussion so rather then cluttering up the forum with tons of stupid threads, why not continue the talk. But if it's such a problem, a mod can feel free to delete the posts and close this thread or whatever.
