    The only one above I see that'll actually work is the CycloDS. The R4 and M3's do not work even though they are somewhat advertised to.

    k, so lets say I go, buy a CycloDS, go home, put mario party DS on it, use DS download play, will it work?
    because It aint worken on my UFP...
    and does the quality of the dump matter?

    Really? Firmware 1.11 seems to have 100% download play.

    No.. The R4, The M3S, and the CycloDS Evo all have perfect download play. The Cyclo since it came out and the R4/M3S since Firmware 1.11

    Supercard DS1 has never failed DS Download play as long as you tick the DS Download play box.
    A lot of times you don't even need to.

    Yeah I can vouch for SCDS-1. I didn't know it could work without ticking that darn DPlay box though. I'll try that out sometime.

    But I do believe if there are future Download Play issues, the Cyclo Team will be the first to solve them. Otherwise if you're not worried, you can stick to R4/M3/SCONE

    Did the 1.6 Kernel fixed the Download play on the EZV?
    I have a Cyclo Evo and a EZV, but I always use the later, don't really know why (flashing the GBA games I guess).

    I don't think it's very reliable.
    I am sure it worked for me with Advance Wars : Double Strike and Mario Kart DS. [​IMG]
    It's probably better just to keep it ticked most of the time. xD
