    Let me explain my case:

    I have two ds: One fat, other lite; both flashed, and two M3 simply
    Before, i had a G6 lite, and from my lite (with the G6 put in) to the fat (un-flashed), download play did not work...so i flashed my fat, and it worked...then, i flashed my lite too.

    So, when i was reading that download play did not work with all games, I was thinking that because my Dss were flashed, it will not be a problem...

    but yesterday, i tried, and it does not work with all he games I tried (mario kart, worms, bleach ds, lost magic) I do not understand, because with my G6 lite, because my Dss were flashed, it worked, so I thought that it would be the same with my M3 simply...

    So I wanted to know If it is a problem for you too, or if this problem exist only with flashed Ds ? and furthermore, could you tell me with which game are you sure that it works ? so i could test it...


    Thanks a lot !

    Never flashed so I don't know. What i can tell you is that two ds's with two m3 simply's should work. Don't choose the download play option though. Have each ds load the same game, then have one start a multiplayer game and the other join in. I have an R4 (same as m3s), my bro a m3 simply, and have played alot of Mario Kart and Bleach heh

    Yeah, the "multi-card" option works fine, but for some games like worms for example, the only multiplay option is with one card, so, download play...

    I've had limited success with download play. It works with some games, but doesn't work with others. Here's another site with ROMs listings...

    http://m3wiki.com/index.php/M3_Simply_Roms

    Seems to be conflicting info on some of those lists. I suspect it might have something to do with the way the ROM was dumped originally since there are many different groups which released them.

    Of the two I've tested, Mario Kart and Bomberman, both do not work. Doesn't matter though for me as I have multiple flashcarts

    Boo, Multiplayer to DSs not using flashcarts with a slot-1 card does not work with most games, even when flashed? That sucks.
    Hope some sort of fix is released, like an update to flashme...

    bomberman worked for me, and Elite beat agents too (1 lite flashed + M3 simply, 1 lite normal)

    I wouldn't immediately accuse flashme of any problems. Doing this, you completely ignore the fact that flashme was around longer and does very little in the way of download play other than ignoring RSA checks. You should be looking to the card manufacturer for any hope of a fix.

    Yeah, but the problem is because the future M3 real will be compatible at 100% with download play, I don't think they will release a firmware including this option for the simply, because the M3 real will loose its advantage on the simply, and so, people won't nedd to buy it, and they will not make money...

    M3 doesn't really have any say in the updates to the Simply, as they are done by the R4 team. If R4 does fix the problem, M3 basically has to follow suit, otherwise they would lose ALL their business. Customers would not stand knowing their was a fix and M3 refused to update due to conflict with Real sales.

    i have to say some games work some games don't. you win some you lose some. if you want to the other ds to work then buy another m3 simply. isn't it worth the money with all the games your getting "elsewhere"? [​IMG]
