    Is it possible to set up a username/password on the DS Lite (with AK2i) ?
    My 3 year old has a habit of deleting or overwriting save games ... [​IMG]

    Cheers

    It is possible, but via another way.

    Put msd to pc and search for globalsettings.ini file, open it and edit this row : LockStartMenu = 0

    instead of 0 put 1 there and save.

    This locks the start menu, so no one could go to menu and do anything there. No START no DELETE [​IMG]

    And on filetrip is one small homebrew aplication (which name I dont remember), but it allows to LOCK the whole DS Flashcard with PASSWORD...

    EDIT: http://filetrip.net/f6893-DSecure-81309.html
    btw. it doesnt work on AK2i, so it is useless, sorry

    I am really shocked that there isn't any way. I would have thought that someone would have come up with a way to do it ages ago.

    it locks the start menu, but can't someone just play a game and overwrite your save anyway?

    you can also use maio from cannonfoddr it`s a moonshell2 loader
    than you can set a password with the tools from moonlight [​IMG]
    no one can delete the things on your AceKard 2i only you because you know the pasword

    Put it on top of your refrigerator. If your 3 year old has a habit of going up there, you've got a more serious problem.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys.
    The reason I'm looking for a password protect solution is help protect the save games on my 9 year old son's DS.
    My 3 year old keeps getting hold of the 9yo's DS (he can't reach the top of the fridge either!) and playing/deleting/overwriting his saved games.
    He just burst into tears after realising he had lost the last 106 solutions to Picross 3D! [​IMG]
    He'll learn, but it'd be nice if it could be avoided in the first place (there's a 6yo and a 1yo in the house as well!)
