    Gambia, The
    I've recently tried to host a download play game of Mario Party with Gateway 2.0b2 and noticed this isn't possible. All I get is a communications error everytime I try. Is this a general problem with 2.0 or am I the only one with the problem? Has the Gateway team said anything about trying to fix it?
    The feature was working with 1.2 if I remember correctly.

    I'm also having this issue, but on games that aren't the same region as my 3DS. For example, I have a Japanese 3DS. If I use a US version of Mario Kart 7 and try to do download play/local multiplayer, it says that a communication error has occurred and boots me back to the title screen. On a Japanese copy, download play and local multiplayer works fine.

    Would be nice if I could use multiplayer on the US MK7 and other games, as everybody else that I know doesn't have a Japanese 3DS.

    Like tomiga said, if the game and 3DS are the same region should work. Are you trimmed the rom by chance? Maybe that is the fault.

    I can confirm that Download Play works for Mario Party Island Tour with the Gateway 3DS cart as the host. US version with all US 3DSs.
