    Nintendo is finally hosting the classic Mario Picross puzzles for download for the US version of Picross DS. There are two sets, both with Mario themes. The weird thing is I actually remember some of them from years ago on the original gameboy. I guess Picross is like riding a bike...with an elephant. You never forget.

    I posted something about this in the Picross EUR thread yesterday but I wasn't sure when the puzzles were added.

    It's good to see that there are 10 pages allocated so we can expect alot more updates. Not soon enough though.

    Really? How you download them? I wish I could play the regular puzzles with the Mario Picross music, I like it better... I feel so nostalgic playing the downloadable puzzles [​IMG]

    I believe you download them on DS Wi-Fi and I meant the ones on the DS. [​IMG]

    Doh. The moment I stop checking the wifi connection for the Puzzle Packs is the moment they actually put it up. [​IMG]

    Oh well. [​IMG]

    I'd get them but I can't even figure out how to do the ones it has already now that it's up to 15x15 on Normal B. I got the first 2 done, screwed on the rest.

    There must be some bullshit mathematical logic thing to this, one thing I couldn't do if it was shown to me on a cheat sheet in front of me. If it wasn't for the hint thing 10x10 would have been a lost cause. [​IMG]

    Must be some fancy trick to eyeballing it but I'm definitely not seeing it, especially how anyone could even begin to start one without that help roulette .

    Figured I'd give the people who didn't notice a heads up, I think all the Mario Picross packs have been released. 10 pages total.

    I believe sharing save files is ok on this forum... so if someone downloads these puzzles can they post their save file for me...please?(preferably without the friend code being registered for the game)

    for some reason I cannot connect to any Wifi from my DS so I cannot download them for myself.... I think it is my router.

    If asking for save files is illegal on this forum, could a Mod or Admin delete this post please.

    Do you have a wireless router or the Nintendo USB wi-fi adapter?

    I have a linksys wrtg54g, I have never been able to get the DS on the net, I can play download play with others though. I have been through all troubleshooting steps off of nintendo site as well. My Wii connects fine through WiFi oddly enough, I've learned to give up on friend codes and internet on the DS.
