    Hi guys,

    not sure if this is the right place to ask cos what I want to ask overlap each forum abit...

    anyway I am using the above mentioned combination and I realise I cannot host mario kart multiplayer session with my friends who don't have the kart... if i play using the ROM via the ez4flash lite...

    but on my original kart no problem, so I reckon its not the game problem...?

    Patch problem


    I tried it with tetris DS it work.

    Some kind of security patch not applied? My friend can download, but after I cut off, when its loaded it will hang at the "Nintendo" screen....

    I believe that if you are using the ROM and you host a single cartridge multiplayer game, then the other DS's need to have their firmware flashed with flashme to play with you.

    (This is what I learned from reading other posts. I have not tried this myself yet.) [​IMG]

    yah that's what i reckon... so its only Kart.. or it affects all ROMs?
    because i got the memory cart mainly so that I dun need to bring my carts along...

    so far I've tried only Mario kart and tetris, and tetris work fine.. so am wondering about the rest....

    oh man... why mario kart...

    Maybe it's because you used the European rom or something..

    I have hosted multiple games with and without flashme betwen roms and real carts and every combination of equipment you can think of, the latest EZ4 Client messes with some wifi games and may mess with download play so try using an earlier version.

    was thinking abt it and decided to try... and i think i maybe right that the encryption/protection (whatever) is for the mario series...

    Because I tried with super mario bro, mario kart (i even used 24052006 client), super mario ds 64 all after download play.. when it starts loading the game, all clients hang at the black nintendo screen with white background. All clients are not flashed, stock firmware. They don use memory card.

    But i tried with Advanced War (sent game over), Brain Age (sent game over), Tetris
    They worked fine. though tetris had a communication breakdown after the 8th game I think.. not sure if it is due to rom or what... but interesting point to note is... TetrisDS is a 1st party title just like the Mario series, but it has no problem.

    you guys manage to do it? a pity because i bought the memeory card so I can play with my colleagues and i need not bring my carts along... but now i can't host the mario series....

    using the latest ezclient version... but interestingly, internet WFC play is no problem, just wireless download play.
