I have the same problem with 2 different homebrew applications that connect to the internet. First off, the apps are: Visual Novel Reader for DS v1.5, and GameUp v3.0. It always starts by saying "Wifi Init", and saying it is connected to the router's connection, but it is never able to connect. It always freezes on 'Connecting to Internet". I haven't DLDI-patched either of these applications, but I have a CycloDS Evolution, so I shouldn't need to. Any ideas on what I should do?

I'm not sure if CycloDS Evolution supports it (I haven't read much about it), but if you have a DSi and your wireless connection is WPA encrypted, homebrew won't be able to connect.

If you're NOT on a DSi, I don't know what the problem could be...

Couple of questions lisalover1:
- Have you set up WiFi using a Retail game (Mario cart etc)? - if not do it
- Is your WiFi SSID hidden? - if it is unhide it as Homebrew can't 'see' hidden SSIDs
- Try dropping all encryption from your router as a test.
- Try giving your DS a fixed IP address and named DNS servers.

I've had this same problem, and I read everywhere I could about it.

I use a DSi with the M3i Zero, and every single homebrew app I've tried that uses wifi either freezes like you say, or gives an error. The actual wifi hardware is different on the DSi, which is why DS mode applications can't use it unless it's designed for it (from what I've read).

Basically, using a DSi for homebrew really sucks right now until a DSi Mode hack is released. Until then, we're in the same boat. Sorry bud, but it won't work.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I tried this with WEP, WPA, and an open access point, and it's all the same. DSi + DS homebrew = problems.

I got a few apps (BeUp 5, Bunjallo 0.77, SMS Center) to run on a DSi with an M3i Zero, I've run them from TouchPod to DLDI patch them and then the apps work fine on Sakura, the only app that is not connecting to internet is VoiceChat, it comes with 3 .nds files and none of them work, also tried using an Acekard2i, still no go for that only app, if you give a link of the apps you are having problems I could do some test on my DSi...!!

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way
