    Alright, I am not very good with computers. I am trying to patch my MKDS ROM so that I can play any tracks online. Here is the site with instructions to do it:
    http://m3wiki.com/index.php?title=Mario_Ka...n_Tracks_Online

    I need to apply an IPS to my MKDS ROM. Can someone tell me how to do this?

    Here is the instructions to getting it to work:

    "Steps to use:
    1) Dump your copy of MK:DS
    2) Apply the included IPS to your dump
    3)
    a) (Flash Cart users)
    Prefix ndsmall.bin to the game, then flash it to your cart, as the only file on there

    b) (GBAMP users)
    Put the patched game on your CF card
    4) Insert your original MK:DS Game Card into your DS
    5) Start the game from the flash cart or GBAMP
    6) Go online and select from the new range of tracks
    7) Enjoy!"

    Thanks.

    Open up a command window (Start>Run>cmd), use the command "cd" (no quotes) followed by the entire directory tree of the folder where ndsmall.bin and the .nds file is (example: cd C:\NDS), then use the command:

    Code:
    copy /b ndsmall.bin + nameofndsfile.nds nameofoutputfile.ds.gba
    replacing the file names for the mkds rom and the name of the output file. Wah-lah!

    Does this work with the EZ Flash IV? Or have I been wasting my time...?
