    Okay,

    Today I purchased a DSi XL, I Updated the bootstrap of my iEdge card and decided to play Assassins Creed II. I clicked the 'Wanted' feature and it gives me the 'A nintendo DSi is required to use this feature.'

    It also does this on Korg DS-10 Plus.

    Any help?

    It's normal. Flashcards don't run in DSi Mode.

    Uh, because the DSi hasn't been fully hacked yet?

    Because DSi mode hasn't been properly hacked. The flashcart pretends to be a normal DS game and that's how it's booted, so everything runs like it's being played on a regular DS.

    Oh I see. I did not know that.

    Thank you very much for your speedy replies [​IMG]

    One more question, If the flashcards don't run in DSi mode will the graphics defer from a normal card?

    Say I'm playing Tetris Party Deluxe on the actual card. Will the graphics be better on the actual card or will they be the same as my flashcart.

    It will be the same, the only thing different is that anything requiring the special DSi functions won't work.
