Im new at this stuff.
Exactly, what does Download Play Does??? what is its use?
Download play for the DS allows you to "send" a small version of the game your playing to a friend with a DS over the wireless system. That will allow you to play a multiplayer game. When your friend turn off their DS, the game is erased from their memory.
It just allows you to play multiplayer games even if your friend doesn't own the game. Not all game support download play. Some games require your friend to have a copy of the game too.
Example of this, Tetris DS. You can send your friend a small version of Tetris, and play against them. Remember, this is all dependent on location. You can't do this if your friend is down the street, or across town. The second DS has to be withing a 30 foot range (depending on walls, and other structures). This is usually for someone in the same room/car.
cool thatt my m3 supports that
Umm. You know almost all of the flashkarts support Download play, right?
That is, almost all of the slot 1 flashkarts.
For example, we have one copy of Mario Kart, but the 4 of us want to all race together. So, the person that had the game on their DS "Host a Game", then the other 3 of us "Join the Game". That enables us to all play it together, even though we have 4 DSs, but only 1 copy of the game. And believe me, there are certain games that are not configured for download play. Each person has to have the game in order to participate.
Though no single-cart multiplayer is as good as multi-cart.
Don't forget bomberman 2 and Mario party. They're designed for single-cart multiplayer.
I think Download Play is explained in your Nintendo DS instruction manual
Who here ever reads the manual for anything?
Agreed. You really reads manuals to learn how to play or do something?
Well I flicked through it in case it had anything exciting in it But it didn't
Although I must say the Pictochat instruction manual was absolutely riveting to read!
