    Hello guys.
    I was wondering if my DSTwo still works, because, every time I play my DS games in my 3DS Console I note that the console is warming. It's notable because if I touch the game card when I still playing it's hot. An that's not happing when I play a 3DS game, such Legend of Zelda.
    My 3DS system is the latest updated, and my dstwo firmware version is v1.19.
    That's normal? What can I do for resolve this problem?

    It's normal. There's a CPU in there that does extra computing, and that does get hot.

    It's normal, it happens with mine as well.
    It's the extra processor on the card that's warming up, not your 3DS.

    It's also what prevents sleep mode from actually saving power when I have my DSTwo inserted. Which makes me cry, because I really miss my Acekard now. ;___;

    Yeah, the battery draings really fast, bit of a compromise for its features though

    It would be nice if it had an option to disable the onboard CPU after it bypasses the AP.
    So I could play my DS games slow with lots of battery and stuff
