What it is

Uses

  • It is used primarily for single DS card multiplayer, when two or more people play with only one game card.

  • To transfer Nintendo WFC settings and ID between DSs.
  • To temporarily download demos from Wiis or DS Download Stations.

Changes

It is virtually unchanged from DS Download Play for the original DS and DS Lite except for that it returns to the DSi menu when exiting as opposed to shutting the system down.

How to detect

The DS Download Play dosn`t have a SSID so it is easy to find for sniffers

How does it work

The DS Download Play application can be used when someone hosts a game that can utilize download for the DS without a game card. At retail stores, Download Stations are usually in a locked box with Nintendo DS Phat systems.
