So, a while back I was wanting to see if the EZ Flash-Vi was capable of properly communicating with Wii software. While a simple test with Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia and Castlevania: Judgement was successful, I was still curious if the card was capable of long-term communication with the Wii. The only thing I could think of to properly test this was Batman: The Brave and the Bold. (Henceforth abbreviated as BatB.)

This was a pretty neat test, because I was running the Wii version of BatB through my WODE. (Awesome modchip device, BTW.)

Anyway, with the Wii BatB (US) fired up on the Wii, I loaded the (EU) BatB DS (the only rip available for the DS version). When searching, the DS wouldn't find the Wii, so no connection was possible. I assumed this was because of the region differences. Instead of find the (EU) version of the Wii BatB (I don't trust out of region stuff on my hacked and modded Wii), I tried to find the (US) version of the DS BatB. It wasn't ripped...at all...by anyone. >.<

So, I signed up for a Gamefly trial.

Just yesterday I backed up the DS BatB using NDS Backup Tool Wifi. (Took about 6 hours, but it worked!) The ROM worked just fine.

So, here's the best part. I loaded the DS Version, attempted to connect to the Wii version, and there was my Wii's nickname on the connection screen! I connected on both ends, and IN CAME BATMITE!

My wife and I played an entire level like this, so the connection was maintained just fine. This means that the EZ Flash-Vi has no issues connecting to the Wii!

A long an convoluted process, but worth it for the research. The EZ Flash-Vi just won so many more points for me.

So if more DS and Wii connectivity games come out, EZ Flash-Vi owners aren't lost to the features.

No problem. I was actually very pleased with the results. I've since updated to the latest kernal, so I'll test it again later. (Not sure if the feature is reliant on the kernal.) I honestly can say that my only gripe with this card is limited homebrew support. For backups though, perfect in every way.

    Omg do you know how much money I would spend if that was a thing? Especially if you get to assemble the gundams somewhat like those old model toy kits. The answer is zero dollars. I would spend zero dollars. It would still be so good, though.

    i just saw a video yesterday that mentioned how it's a good thing 1-2-switch wasn't a pack in title because it would've made everyone lose faith in the switch immediately and they might have a point
