    Nevertheless, flashcarts are unable to use the WI-FI Download function, as Nintendo's server keeps track of the IDs assigned to each physical copy of the game, which, even though they can be faked on flashcarts, the amount of possible IDs makes it for an extremely low chance to happen upon an ID that actually exists, thus effectively stopping illegal copies from downloading songs.

    From wikipedia.

    That may be true. Can someone please confirm?

    You have the mega pack anyway right? You can manually put the songs.

    Yes you can't download songs with the rom. The 50(?) downloads is probably all used up. We all share the id from the cart it was dumped from.

    Yep, it's true. You cannot download any songs from the Nintendo server.. because of what the previous post said.

    However, it's kind of balanced out by the fact that you can add custom .bdx song files to your sav file.

    which, for the record, is practically impossible to on the official game.
    so, yeah. a pirated version has way more custom songs available than the original.

    Is the current set of wifi downloadable tracks for JWTB available in a bdx pack somewhere? I got the megapack elsewhere on the site but all I could find were the pack ins.

    Basically I'm interested in official tracks in English.

    Does that mean nobody has made them available, or that it's impossible? I figured someone could rip them from an official cart using a slot-2 device.

    Nothing is impossible but I will not share my own ID for sure. With the japanese release Team Cyclops made a working patch for a short time with a fake ID but it was blacklisted.

    nope.
    none of the current save-ripping methods support 32MB saves.

    the save chip used is 32MB, and the game expects a 32MB savefile.
    the game uses only up to about 5-6MB of that.(also the reason i think akaio gets away with making a 16MB save, the rest is just padding)

    seems odd, but it's because they have limited "large save carts".

    there are only 2 gamecarts produced by nintendo capable of holding 5MB savedata.
    the band brothers DX cart with 64MB game space, 8MB save space. and the warioware DIY cart with 128MB game space and 32MB save space
    jam with the band was forced to use the bigger DIY cart because the added languages bumped the size up to above 64MB.

    I was wondering this myself for a while...

    But to be honest, there's so many custom songs available that I dont really mind.

    If you really want the official songs, maybe consider buying the actual game?

    If anyone can somehow rip the the official .bdx files, that would be awesome, but I'm fine without.

    So if I rent the game and the first person who rented it downloaded tracks, no one else who rents it after them will be able to?

    Yeah. You only get 50 slots per cart, and you're not allowed to delete any to make space for new ones.

    It seems a bit harsh, but I guess it's so their servers dont get overloaded/the cost? Don't know.

    So I would get the game new, lol xD

    That's pretty lame. They make you buy multiple versions to get all the tracks, lmao. Someone needs to figure out how to hack the official dlc, I could care less about 5,000 video game and anime songs.

    As suggested, I would just buy the game or find something else to do, but I'm recently disabled and on fixed income, and I literally have nothing better to do.


    SO, is the obstacle the hardware, or the fact that slot-2 devices are no longer being supported and we need a firmware hack?

    not really, most likely the game has some verification points beyond the first 8MB.
    otherwise AKAIO(i think it was) wouldn't be using 16MB saves

    Yes same 16 Mo save for Evolution from Cyclops Team in Today's Beta3 release too. A 00 hex sav works to initiate the game with a CycloDS.
