This is interesting...

On a 1.4 DSi at the main menu, press the R button to enter the quick-camera mode. While at this screen, insert an updated AceKard 2i then exit the screen. On mine, this causes it to appear as 'AceKard 2i' instead of danny phantom

Weird.

Yes...when I do that, the Acekard fails to boot.

You might have actually stumbled onto something serious, if Nintendo could force firmware to load games the way it somehow does when you boot the Camera...they could possibly block flashcarts pretending to be games.

but what happens is the DSi in quick-camera mode is loads the game as if it was in a DS lite.
So even if they discovered how to force the firmware to load the way it does in the quick-camera mode, all they would have to do is make a new update that also changes the DS lite bootloader.

The reason that it does this is IIRC because DS Phat and DS Lite units send piece of data 1 then piece of data 2 to the game card when they read it. the DSi usualy sends piece of data 2 then piece of data 1, so here it appears to be doing it like a Phat or Lite. Because the 1.4 updated AK2is are meant to only show up as Danny Phantom when they are in a DSi, they probebly detect if it is in a Phat or a Lite this way, and as the DSi appears to access the card like a Lite or Phat when in the camera, it thinks it is in a Lite or Phat.

So if Ninty released an update that uses this to block flashcarts, wed just need another update to make it always appear as Danny Phantom.

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
