    Hi guys,

    What's the deal with using the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection from games on a G6 - seeing as the Friend Code is generated from both the individual copy of the game and the DS console, would this not quite obviously expose the use of an illegitimate rom to Nintendo? Is it possible for them to ban a specific DS from their service?

    Cheers

    I don't think they can ban you since it would be hard to track a specific DS for each friend code (I don't even think there is an algorithm for a legitimate friend code).

    If they did ban you by MAC Address, you could always flash your DS, IIRC it changes your MAC
