    Hi all,

    My kids have got mario and sonic at the olympics but hve discovered a small but annoying bug/issue.

    One of my kids is called Eleanor, but it will not accept this name, this is the same on both DS's with different cards. Is this just a problem effecting us or is it repeatable on others? Oh and of course has any one got an idea of how to get around this.

    I wondered if one of the characters was call Eleanor, and the name was resevred, so I tried Sonic and that was no problem. Also with the name Eleanor, I tried adding a smiley character b4 and after the name same result...

    Cheers

    How do you mean "not accepting" does it crash or just not let you proceed or something else?

    no, the game is supposd to work this way. It has a RIDICULOUSLY long lost of "inappropriate" names that it bans. they went CRAZY with it! sometimes its because the name contains a bad word somewhere in the name, other times you have no clue.

    Yep that worked [​IMG]

    unpacked it with dslazy found the bad names list deleted it and repacked it, now she can be Eleanor [​IMG]

    That actual name is not in the list though something close to anor is. So I guess that was what was flagging it up.

    On another note she can connect multiplayer with her sisters no problem without having to "patch" hers which is a bonus.

    Cheers again
