    I think that he's simply referring to fixing the Wii Connection, not Download Play itself. He also uses the word "try". Hmm...

    well actually the wii connection is basically download play. you're just sending a packet that the wii reads and displays. at least they are trying! i hope they can do it...and soon...

    Hmm its not download play.
    The CycloDS has 100% download play but does not work with Pokemon Battle Revolution.
    But the G6Real works. Maybe its all about inbuildt memory?

    No, because I don't think DS-X can connect either. Anyone with one please try, though I doubt it.

    Maybe because G6 Real uses a DIFFERENT type of On-board memory..

    Hmm took this from G6Flash website for G6Real.
    "Menu first or begin G6 Main Menu directly (Convenience for download play.)"

    Looks like the R4 is dommed if thats correct becurse its the R4's hardware that makes the autoskip..

    I think these people are Chinese, so their responses are a bit, um, direct. Anyway, that's interesting to know that the R4 doesn't work with battle revolution at the moment.

    By "convenience for download play", they mean "so you can use Download Play from the DS's firmware without popping the G6 out of the Slot 1".

    dude, your gullible.
    You think they are gonna fix it because of you, think your the only one that emailed. Probably was an automated response.

    I wonder if download play being fixed will require the ROMs to be trimmed differently or possibly not trimmed at all.....or if it will just require the R4 to quick-patch the WiFi games in some way. I hoping for the latter.

    Now a really cool trick would be making the R4 work with a SDHC. Not bloody likely, I know, but that would be awesome if they could somehow magically pull it off. That would really suck the oxygen out of the CycloDS's fire.....even more than download play, IMO.

    Is it even possible to make the R4 work with SDHC without changing the hardware?

    No it is not possible since the hardware is not made for it.

    Yet, people will say they can do it(The same people that ask about GBA ROMS on their R4's and don't take no for an answer) [​IMG]

    Why doesn't R4 just reconfigure it with a SDHC reader (I mean inside the R4 so it can read the new format) than release in a new batch then problem solved. They will be then even with Cyclo DS (Minus download play which I hope they can fix in a new firmware release) but then people buy the R4 because its cheaper this means they make a big profit. [​IMG] Yah for profit!

    It fixes the problem sure, but how betrayed would other customers be? They simply can't just make a new batch and call it the same product knowing that there are thousands of owners with their current R4 design

    EDIT: However, I'm sure they are working on some new product with some ideas ripped off the Cyclo (perhaps the same as the M3DS Real - just as M3S=R4, but who knows)

    I feel that argument doesn't work.... Ever bought a T.V.? Chances are that within 6 months there was a new version of your exact T.V. with upgraded features. Also, computers, cell phones, ipods etc etc.

    They could easily release a new one. Now, I would personally feel cheated seeing as how I just bought mine, but that's the way it always works.

    If they added SDHC hardware Id sell my R4 to my bro and get the new one. 4GB should be fine with all the music and vids I have.

    Now that I think bout it, 4GB cards are already out that work with R4 (tho they're not SDHC).

    Fix d/p and I'm all over R4. [​IMG]
