    Just redownloaded the first Professor Layton. Unfortunately, the touch screen seems to fail at random times, so I'm unable to touch anything on the screen with the stylus. Then it mysteriously works again, and then not. However, it worked before, so I'm not really sure what's going on. Using CycloDS firmware 2.3

    Probably Anti-Piracy, seeing as the CycloDS/iEvo haven't been updated for ages.

    It doesn't sound like anti-piracy...

    Does this happen on any other games?

    Try calibrating your touch screen ( i dunno if it's there in DSi )

    I don't know. Most of the games I play don't use the touch screen, so I can't say.
    D'oh. Haven't thought of that. Hope it fixes things.

    Have you calibrated the touch screen?

    Mine was playing up on my Lite, and recalibrating fixed it...

    EDIT: never-mind...

    Your touch layer may be going bad. They're not too difficult to replace if you're good with your hands. But if you have the resources to do so, I would try another touch screen game on this cart (Just download Colors! DS homebrew), then test the Layton game on a different card.

    All you need to replace the touchscreen on a DS Lite. There is a sticky how-to in one of the DS sections (Hardware and Accessories, maybe?) showing very detailed (with pictures!) how to do a touch screen replacement.

    Unfortunately, I don't trust my hands enough to do so :P. I really hope it's just my flashcart that's acting up...
