    yea I went there

    but are you SURE you have to lock friends in???? I didn't see it in the book ......

    one of us in worldwide and one of us in friends might work but theoretically we should both search friends and have it work .....

    yeah. on the last page of the mario kart manual, it talks about locking. i have two other friends that are on now, and i have them locked, and i have you, so this should work if we all do this at the same time... which is now. Haha. I'll give it a few more tries to work, but it angers me.

    All that locking does is prevent the friend (who is locked) from being deleted from the Friend list when the list limit is exceeded.

    When you exceed the friend limit, a random friend is deleted to make room for the new one. Friends who are locked will not be deleted in this fashion.

    So locking isn't necessary for gameplay really.

    It says though on the mario kart manual that it will increase the chance of you connecting with your friends.

    I had no problems playing online before, yesterday I managed to fit in like 10 races and a few today ... but now all of a sudden it just seems to be having technical difficulties .. other message boards are hearing issues of too many people connecting at once now that the game is in everyone's hands by this time ... as soon as that code yellow goes back to code green on nintendowifi.com everything should be fine

    edit: Anybody else having problems with internet connections the same time the DS is connected to WiFi? Because after I have my DS connected wirelessly, none of the other computers in my house can use the internet.

    Help me out guys. I have mario kart ds and i've connected my wireless router, but i can't connect. The reason is probably i need a WEP key. So does anyone know where i can find this WEP key?

    Alright, I've updated the first page with the other codes, make sure you tell people when you are adding them so they can do the same. For the people that are having problems with the net when they connect, are you using the WEP key? Cause I'm not and it doesn't seem to interfere. If you allow your router to accept the DS's MAC address, you can connect that way.... but I don't know much about routers, so I don't know if this affects anything.

    (I still haven't connected to anyone cause of the server problems Nintendo WFC was having :-( guess I'll try this afternoon)

    From what I heard, only 'friends' mode was working. I just must've not been lucky, or had enough friends. Does anyone know if you can connect with a friend and his/her friends (that aren't on your list, but on his/hers) in friends mode? I have to try again tonight or tomorrow, I'll be busy playing DQ VIII.

    PSP uses 802.11g and DS uses 802.11b, I think. G is better than B, btw because G has a broader signal range than B...at least that is my understanding....its either that or G has a higher transfer rate.

    It's something you check in the game. You have to have connected to the WFC at least once to have a friend code. After he's done that, he can go to Nintendo WFC -> Friend Code -> Confirm Friend Code and then you can trade passwords. Also, playing a local wireless game against someone automatically adds them to your friends list.

    I posted this in the other thread first (thinking it was this one), but here it is again:

    I hand down to you a link to help with your emblem making:

    http://www.zsivanys.nl/mkdecal/

    This allows you to upload an image, and it'll covert the image onto a 32x32 grid using the MK pallete so you can use it as an emblem. You still have to draw it yourself obviously, but it's easy and useful for those more complex pictures.

    I've only added Chair_home and gamingsage, haven't gotten to the rest of you guys yet. I'll get to it later.

    Finally got mine, w00t. Anyways, had a couple of questions about connecting.

    1. Will a modem with a wireless gateway work, or does it have to be a router/Nintendo Wi-Fi USB? I can't get my modem to connect, but I wanted to make sure before I go pick up a router.

    2. Where the eff do you find your WEP? I've checked like, every setting on my PC. :xeye:

    Hopefully I get some answers before tomorrow, cause if not, I'll be buying a router, whether I needed it or not. I MUST have online Mario Kart. :pray:

    It won't find friends that are in games already.

    And I believe (not certain, don't hold me to this) that it searching for friends only finds friends that are ALSO searching for friends. I could be wrong though.

    Well, I was able to go online last night, but I tried again tonight with no luck. I assume it's something to do with my router / static ip. These static ips make everything so much harder.

    What IP do I have to connect to in order for my DS to connect? The router IP or my actual ISP IP? I had to put my static IP info in my router, and had to use a router IP to connect my computer to the router, which then the router connects to the internet. I'm just confused as to what I did yesterday to make it work, and why it isn't working today.

    I haven't had any lag, but it can take a little while to set up a game. Good overall.

    When I get home I should add everybody here to my friends list. I've got only 3 so far...

    my experience has been about 90% of my games have no lag, 9% have playable lag, and 1% have unplayable lag. it can take forever to get a game setup, usually about 3-5 minutes.
