    I have a r4i gold card. And I want to know if I'm playing a game can I exit back to the manu?

    Yes, in the options menu there is a part where you can choose a button combination to go back to menu from the game/homebrew. (try looking for soft-reset or something)

    IIRC if it's buttons a game wouldn't respond to then they won't work for soft-reset (since it tells the DS to ignore them). Try making it a combo of buttons you can press at that point in time to do stuff.

    I didn't know that about the game telling the DS to ignore certain buttons.
    Tried the soft reset - didn't work - assumed it was a bug and kept using the power button for a reset.
    Armed with your new information, it works just fine.

    Thanks for the info, Rydian! (And for your "somewhat stupid" question DoctorSmash.)
    Thid is where this forum shines, people helping people (and everyone reading that post).

    Yeah the DS is still sort of a "dumb" system when compared to modern ones, so it still does stuff like this where the running program has almost full control over the hardware since it has no OS or anything running over the game.

    The DS was a good system. For its time but I like the 3ds over all.
