    Before you ask, the rom has a DSi warning if put in a DS and no it does not work on No$GBA emulator.

    So its the first dsi only game to be dumped. Its suprising that they dumped what you would think would be a whole new system with barely any problems. Its the first even though theres system flaw and ( i found this out by my little sis ) 2 or 3 fashion desginer-esc dsi only games.

    Dumped. As i already stated and well known fact there are already about 3. But their all REALLY bad. As in bulldozerwear bad. This seems to be the only decent looking dsi only games

    Any chance to ever run it on the current gen of DSi cards? Specifically, any hope for Acekard 2i?

    And besides, can anyone confirm if the game is region-locked? I wonder if its possible to run it, say, on an American DSi? I mean a legally-owned copy, not the dumped rom.

    from the box art this looks pretty good, now I only hope and pray that some clever person fixes it so it works on all cards and all ds's..... [​IMG] otherwise I'll have to find money to go buy a DSi at somepoint [​IMG]

    I think it won`t be possible to run it on a DS or DSLite since the game actually uses the cameras of the DSi.

    Still no one to confirm if it`s region-locked? )

    all dsi exclusive and dsi enhanced games are region locked, and according to norm the dsi section of this game wasn't dumped so it should be nuked....

    the only thing it contains would be the message that shows up on the ds telling you it can only run on dsi...

    surprisingly, the game ID is "NTR", the same as the NDS and NDSL.

    The hybrid/NDSi enhanced games were marked as "WTL", that's part of the main reason gbatemp started to numbered them 001 with "My personnal coach".
    It seems now it was decided to numbered the DSi exclusives back from the start.

    Will the NDS releases be affected and renumbered (To match advanscene.com OLL, it could be fine), or will gbatemp keep 3 DS games lists ? (ND/hybrid/i) ?

    The 2nd link is the first hybrid ds/dsi release, this one is strictly dsi only. Which means we'll have to create a new category, what we do with the "hybrid" releases I'm not sure as of yet but I'd assume for now that it'll remain labeled as "ds dsi". Then again the "hybrids" could have it's own category in itself.

    The Scene-Release numbers are a mess.

    - Nov 12 2009 - DS #DSi 0019: Assassin's Creed II: Discovery (USA)
    - Nov 25 2009 - DS #DSi 0001: Monster Finder (Japan)

    That`s nonsense. It`s like we`re counting backwards!

    This should be:

    - DSi #0001: Monster Finder (Japan)

    Well remember the Zelda Oracle games? They were "GBA enhanced" but they were still GBC games for all intents and purposes.

    That's more confusing when DSi exclusive have the same ID than NDS, and Hybrids have special Game ID.
    according to Game ID, enhanced must have their own list, when DSi exclusive should continue in the NDS main numbering.


    I was for the new separated list with enhanced games, but now I've change my mind, and I'm more to fuse enhanced with main list (like Advanscene did).
    I'm curious about how they will manage the new DSi list though. maybe they will fuse it too, that's gonna be a real mess [​IMG]

    This being in NDS releases is just confusing.

    However, on the topic of the game itself... The boxart looks nice, I don't have a DSi, but this could be a fun game. Looks like some kind of RPG?
