    Hello...

    i juste want to know if a compatibility list exist for DSTT ?

    If Ashley and the unofficial team will stop to make upgrade...

    It will be a good thing to have this kind of list...

    I'd say DSTT has around 95-99% compaibility so far,one game that doesn't work is Where's Waldo

    Then you better get to work on that time machine.

    Basically, every cart has the potential for 100% game compatibility.
    It's just a matter of the firmware devs being able to crack the game.

    It seems that the official DSTT doesn't care anymore and their card is supported by ashley and crew (the unofficial DSTT firmware).
    But since ashley likes to play the victim and cry that "their" firmware (which they "stole" from DSTT) has been "stolen" by DSTT, it's not looking too promising.

    I'll follow what most of the folks say - buy yourself a acekard or something. I recently obtained DSTT not knowing about their poor firmware support, and if i could i would pay couple of dollars more back then to get something else (acekard, cyclods).

    Please try to think before you will answer or participate in a "topic"...

    Im talking about the futur of the DSTT, why?

    Because, maybe, we will not obtain new kernel anymore...
    (unofficial team want to stop and official ndstt.com dont work since a long time on kernel)

    So... in the futur, it will be useful to have a list of compatibility
    to know what game work and what game dont work with the last kernel that we had...

    Do you understand now?

    And dont talk about other linker, we are in the DSTT section, not in Acekard or cyclods section!

    in the futur we dont know who will continue or stop to upgrade kernel in every TEAM of linker...

    First things first, its future, not futur.

    Secondly, are you saying you should make a list now, or make one in the future, its really not clear.

    And finally, surely an incompatibility list would be a lot easier to make, seeing as the vast majority of games will work on the DSTT.

    Additional note...
    The tools to update infolib.dat and extinfo.dat, the file most responsible for game compatibility, are out on the internet. There is also limited documentation for the infolib.dat, but documentation none the less... and it's not too hard to figure out how to do it even without the documentation -- I (kinda) figured it out for myself.
    As for extinfo.dat, I cannot say for sure if there is any info outside of that which comes with the tool.

    The main 'issue' is... WHO will update it? Currently ashley+crew is filling that role and doing it well.
    But since DSTT released 1.17a12 and upset ashley, there might not be more firmware from them.
    Absolutely NO offense or disrespect to denieru7, but it seems like quite the chore/hassle to keep the infolib.dat file consistently updated... and while it's no small task, I do believe that it is significantly easier to keep updated than the extinfo.dat file.
    So even if someone DOES step forward with the knowledge to update infolib.dat... how long will they do it?
