    1. Thanks Pong and Retro for all your hard work. Some clowns don't appreciated but many do. I have both the DSTT for my son's games and AK2I for myself.

    Why does some new games like Batman Brave & Bold ( among others ) work on AK2I but not on the DSTT ? I understand that Pong, Retro and other fixers do their thing but my AK2I's loader HAS NOT BEEN updated since July 15th and many if not all of the NEW games work fine ?

    So what's the difference ?

    Ddi enhanced games don't work on the DSTT, the DSTT is dead

    GammaForce, you're wrong. Have a look at Pong's compatibility list, they fixed a lot of DSi hybrid games.

    It's because Normmatt can see a little way into the future.

    A lot of games will use pre-existing AP methods. It's only when games have new AP that people notice it.

    That doesn't really explain why some games work on my AK2I. I'm talking about NEW games like Batman Brave and Bold, Lego Harry Potter .

    Like I said, the AK2i hasn't gotten an updated loader since July but those games work. DSTT must use pre-existing AP methods too.

    As for the other poster who says the DSTT team hasn't been working on it, that I understand but Pong , Retro and others have been making newer games work ?

    They're using pre-existing AP that the AK2i has already patched and the DSTT has not.

    Simple concept.

    the DSTT's firmware is awful, and nobody has compiled an alternative for it. I'm fairly certain "That Goblin Dude" can make Wood for the DSTT, but hasn't. The DSTT firmware (TTMENU, YSMENU) are able to get past little (or no) AP methods, while newer, more expensive cards have firmware that are made with such things in mind.

    For one reason:

    Acekard2i + AKAIO = GOD
    TTDS = Sucks like dinosaur´s balls.
