    Away from civilization.
    Feel free to ridicule, but no one's forcing anyone to update.

    Didn't the first post say the DSTwo was confirmed as working just a little while ago?

    What about those that already have Cave Story?
    (But Cave Story 3DS is better anyway.)

    Frankly this is nothing but one big dick move.
    "This update doesn't actually add anything, but if you like to use a flashcart, we'll punish you by not letting you BUY our DSiWare!"

    one thing i could never get over was how flash carts ruined online fps for nds.. being a flashcart user i hated playing legit against someone with the name AK2i and hacking the frishizzile out of every online match...granted this would have blocked me also if i kept my dsi or continued to use in my 3ds but it solves the online gaming issue, and hopefully in he future they will learn how to improve online bans for cheating, if there were updates to block only cheats i would be 100% in favor.

    Is there even any good DSiWare?
    If there is, then chances are you would already have bought them anyway.

    Probably being lazy.
    Wish there was a facepalm emoticon right now....I really can't seem to get my real point across to anyone.

    I'm not speaking on the side of Pirates, and the fact that their Flashcards dont work now. Thats not the side I really care about.

    I'm speaking per the fact that this is yet another update that does nothing significant, if anything at all, and is masked by a lie that it does improve performance. This is unacceptable, at least in my personal oppinion, as thats like Ubuntu releasing an update that changes nothing at all about the OS, but claiming that it halves boot time and makes you use half as much ram. It's just one big blatent lie, and to have people believe it is just more proof that Nintend of America has become abusive and uncaring to their original customer base.

    Someone please confirm this for me, this update doesn't make your system any more efficient or faster, does it? I'm gonna feel smug if I'm right on this, and to be honest I suspect that I already am.

    I think there's probably a multi-pronged approach to this.

    1) By enabling more stuff on the DSi/3DS shop, they hope to encourage users to continually update in order to access such material

    2) Psychologically this makes updating your handheld a 'routine' thing rather than something you do once a decade if that

    3) With the current DSi strategy, they are relying on the selfish nature of the flashcart makers to use UNIQUE icons per cart. This effectively means that you burn several exploits for each update. It would be better if flashcart makers agreed upon which game will work for everyone so that you're not burning 5-10 icons for every firmware update.

    4) This incurs an additional inconvenience for the 'hacking consumer'

    5) This forces flashcart makers to have people on staff to at least try and update their product every time an update comes out. Before they were just copying something then just letting the units fly out the door as fast as they could assemble them.

    6) Forces flashcart makers to waste money if they can't update their products and need to create a new 'line' to sell another product. If you update often enough, then even greedy flashcart makers that make you buy a new one after each update, actually start losing money due to wasted inventory and constant revisions.

    Even though Team Supercard generally gets fixes out quickly, I have never updated my DSi since I bought it. I just see no reason to; they never give you any actual improvements, just more attempts at blocking flashcards. And since I don't buy any DSiWare anyway, there are literally no advantages to me updating my firmware.

    I understand what your saying, and I think there should be a facepalm for someone calling something as trivial as that a "dick move".

    FFFFFF I have to send my XL in. Oh wait, this means I can laugh at all the retards who bought the cheap cards that no longer work. Oh SHI- they'll spam us for a fix. This isn't lulzy at all.

    Speaking of which, has the M3i Zero even had a compatibility update for DSi 1.4.2 or the latest 3DS firmwares?
    Can the cart be considered truly dead now? Good riddance if so.

    Didn't Smiths say something about there only being a handful of DS games that can be spoofed? Maybe the N knows this and wants to force flashcard teams to run out of games they can use.

    Another possibility is that this update was primarily intended for stabilizing the DSiWare transfer feature and the N said "What the hell" and threw in some AP for good measure.

    so many possibilities . . .

    Sort of on the wrong forum to be using that, aren't you?

    You know what I don't understand? In the whole holy hell of DSi updates, I've never seen the Action Replay DSi blocked. Although as far as I know, it spoofs a game just like any DSi flashcard. Why is this? Or am I dead wrong about the set ups of Flashcards and Action Replay DSi's?

    Maybe Nintendo doesn't want to upset Gamestop, who sells ARdsi's

    I'm surprised no one has copied it too.

    Probably because it's sold retail.
