    Yeah, I just tried it out, and it does work.

    Just when you select a game, select the save type named Auto. Then when you're in a game, just hit L+R+A+B+X+Y, and it resets right back to the menu.

    I can't believe the clones finally got this feature.

    How has everyone found soft reset? It's pretty handy.

    This is what I've found so far:

    I'm mainly playing homebrew and emulators at the moment, which soft reset doesn't work with.

    It's locked up once on Ouendan 1 and once on Tetris when I've tried to soft reset.

    It doesn't work on Zelda. Doesn't lock up or anything, just doesn't do anything.

    When you reset the browser (and I guess while you're on wifi in general) the LED keeps blinking until you start a new game.

    So overall, it's pretty good with a few minor glitches.

    But N-Card users have to use that program to update to get the features first, whereas the clones can just run an NDS. Personally, I'm running MK5 firmware on my N-Card.

    I know Feel the Magic is definitely not working. And it was working on the DS-Linker firmware that I had before I updated to this MK5 firmware.

    As for Lunar Knights, I'm sure. I don't know why it isn't working though, it was working on previous firmwares.

    Once the DS-Linker releases a new firmware, I would update to that. They usually have, in my opinion, the best firmware of the clones.

    Think it's better wait for newer firmwares. This situation rememeber me the early R4 firmwares. Soft reset would not work on some games.

    Works really well...

    HOLD DOWN the SELECT button...

    then press the left or right on the thumbpad to toggle through the save options, they don't default as Auto when you first drag and drop them onto your Ncard, so you will have to do this to each rom you add...

    1.44 is out THUD. If you're using 1.43, you should upgrade.

    Also, how do you get the boxes in your skins? I mean...you know exactly where to put a box for the save type, the game icon, the game name, etc...

    When I make a skin for the N-Card, I just use a standard 256x192.bmp. And I get none of those boxes, lol.

    So could you give me any advice? I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Hi, I am running 1.44 and the reset works a treat...

    as for the boxes I use Photoshop and create a symbol box give it a drop shadow effect with a slight glow effect to give it a 3d type effect...the whole thing is just a load of images slapped together and then outputted as a bitmap for the Ncard

    Ok, I definitely know how to make the boxes, but how would I know exactly where to put them? Or was that just a bunch or trial and error on your part?
