    what is the name of the rom set which would have 1:1 back-ups of dsi enhanced roms? the current round of testing is revealing that the roms are missing dsi data and that they should be run in ds mode =P

    so far only tron - evolution (e) is working but i'm not even sure whats "enchanced" about it.

    and before you all jump on me, no i didn't ask where to get roms, i asked the name of the collection that would be 1:1 dumps without the dsi data removed.

    cheers,

    Alice in wonderland EU seems to start properly on iEvo and Sonic collection.
    Those games has DSi parts but are not used. I suppose Tron is in the same case.

    are the rest of the dsi enhanced roms even supported yet? they said so on the forum so i grabbed a bunch but the softwareis saying to run them in ds mode because the dsi data is missing. i'm assuming its the roms i have and not the firmware.

    I have a doubt about the fact this flashcart run real enhanced dsi games for now.
    The loader seems to check the offset 0x12 to determine if the dump is a DSI or DS dump.

    IIRC, the dump of My Healthy Cooking Coach (U) by SUXXORS contained valid DSi sections. That game also is known to use the camera, so seems like a good candidate for testing.

    I tested both Pokémon Black and White games on it.

    Works, firts time save also works, but once in the game, saving locks up your game and a reboot is needed.

    IIRC many "DSi" games are listed as such even though they have no enhancements because Nintendo made developers switch over to their TWI development system, thus some stuff in the header identifying them as having been made with it.

    I think in some cases, the game will run better (less slowdown or choppiness) in a DSi in DSi mode than it does on a regular DS. That is certainly true of Sonic Collection.

    yeah, and cyclo is pushing the "layering" feature they have coded into the software. they are saying that you can now run any ds mode game (and homebrew by the next firmware upgrade) in dsi mode and gain the benefits of the faster cpu and increased ram. the only issue i will face with that, as far as testing, is that normmatt has fixed all of those issues in akaio. he either found the bugs and addressed them directly (like with POR) or added code to allow stuff to work better on slower/generic msd cards. to be honest i can't recall experiencing a "slow down" issue while beta testing akaio all these years, lol.

    so anyone have a good list of games that use the actual dsi features? i have cooking coach so i'll give that a go. i need a few more to make sure dsi-mode is actually allowing roms to access the extra features of the dsi.

    Rydian, thanks for the tip about the development system.

    Sonic classic collection suns a bit smoother on my dsi!(original cardridge)

    That means it may use the eternal CPU of the DSI.

    Bejeweled Twist is the only game I know about that has some minor lags on Akaio (not related to mSD). The lags appear during the animations while getting special points.

    Since this is a DSi release, it would be very interesting to compare it directly on Akaio in DS mode and on iEvo in DSi mode.

    And it's a very nice game, btw.

    I'm not sure if it was YWG who helped Normatt with the fix the same way he did with TC in solving the PoR freezing (which was a result of bad coding and happens with a real cart too). But anyways, I think it might be neat to see the homebrew running with the DSi hardware instead of the old DS HW.

    As far as I know, the Face Training game (DSi only) never got dumped.

    It vanished from Nintendo of Europe's website quite fast, I don't think this was a success.

    You can try & compare Art Acedemy as well.

    http://www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/games/...ning_18155.html

    Click on "About Art Acedemy (left button) and "Click here to have a look at the comparison table".

    There you can see the difference of the DS and DSi mode.

    And then tell me when I should press "BUY" on iEvo, plze. [​IMG]

    ran some tests with the ievo v2 firmware:

    4678 - Bejeweled Twist (DSi Enhanced) (U)(BAHAMUT) ---- says the game is missing the dsi specific sections, does not load in dsi-mode
    4765 - Sonic Classic Collection (DSi Enhanced) (U)(Venom) ---- says the game is missing the dsi specific sections, does not load in dsi-mode
    xxxx - Foto Showdown (DSi Exclusive) (U)(Independent) ---- says the game is missing the dsi specific sections, does not load in dsi-mode
    xxxx - Picture Perfect Hair Salon (DSi Exclusive) (U)(RFTD) ---- says the game is missing the dsi specific sections, does not load in dsi-mode
    xxxx - System FLAW (DSi Exclusive) (E)(RFTD) ---- says the game is missing the dsi specific sections, does not load in dsi-mode
    xxxx - System Flaw (DSi Exclusive) (U)(RFTD) ---- says the game is missing the dsi specific sections, does not load in dsi-mode

    3949 - My Healthy Cooking Coach (DSi Enhanced) (U)(BAHAMUT) ---- works, camera works.

    foto showdown, system flaw, and hair salon, are listed as being "dsi" games. =( the rest of the "dsi-enhanced" games have the same problem except for tron.

    i'm also have lots of issues with the in-game menu. it fails to work on a majority of what i've tested so far.

    I heard that the Wood dumper is able to dump DSi games properly. This is actually a very sad list since most of all the ROMS don't work.

    What do you mean by smoother? Is it somehow better than the original cartridge?
    Sonic Classics Collection is not advertised as DSi-enhanced is it?
