    Whenever I try to play single card play with another DS it stuffs up!
    Bomberman was allright, but MPH and NSMB will connect, then as soon as the game is about to start it sais somthing like "lost connection" or "PLayer has dropped out"... I cant remember.
    Does anyone else have this trouble?

    EDIT: Ahh.. Probly wrong baurd.

    Do you have a flashed DS and tried playing with an unflashed DS? They don't work well together during download play.

    Edit: Well then, I'm an idiot. I have not done any flash work whatsoever so I'm merely suggesting what I read elsewhere. [​IMG]

    Flashing your ds does NOT affect ds download play. As mentioned, some roms will work, while others do not (same problem with me).
    I connect to other people with the real game, and a unflashed ds, with no problems. The only time I have problems is when I host some games through my flashcard.
    I havent had the time, or bothered to try it, but you can get it to work if you patch if diffrent ways. (also how "clean" the rom dump is)

    it is not flashme that affects download play, it is the rom itself. If you are sending from a rom -> unflashed DS, it won't work.

    The flashme does affect multiplayer play, get it right. If both DSes are flashed and one of them sends a rom, it works.

    You guys are a little confused as to what I was referring to. Flashme will not affect the sending DS.

    So do we know which games will work and which ones won't (in terms of sending roms to UNFLASHED DS)?

    It sounds like Bomberman does, but Metroid Prime Hunters and New Super Mario Bros do not?

    I couldn't get the Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! or Mario Basket 3-on-3 ROMs to work via download play [​IMG] Tried with both flashed and unflashed DS's, neither would see the sending DS's game.

    So its got to do with how "clean" the dump is, settings and what not. And not if the other DS isnt flashed. Ok thanks.
