thanx for responding..but how do u get the settings to save(the birthday fav colour nickname etc)
I simply do step Pre-setup no. 2.C.1 up to 2.C.3. And have to do nothing else. For me it just save the setting automatically after I press OK, and each time I play/return to play those settings are there. So I really don't know why in your case it it kept going missing each time you close/shut down the DeSmuMe or your computer.
I cant seem to get this running on my Windows 7 (64 bit)
And i keep getting this "Error 5200" line after testing the connection with the game: Mario Kart DS (E)(M5)(0201)
I did all that is told on the first post, the settings i've done correct and to run DeSmuME in admin mode.
The only 2 things i aint sure about is the Ethernet thingy, here i only see a line saying Microsoft nothing about Ethernet
And as for WinPcap i'm not sure if my firewall accepts it but i dont know how to make it do so.
B.T.W.: When i test the connection it starts showing a green full connection and after a while it goes weak to red and gives me the "Error 5200".
If you can't get it running on SVN 3963 or newer, try the older version such as SVN 3947. The download link is on page 1.
As for the finding out if your firewall has given access to your WinPcap. Do this:
START --> CONTROL PANEL --> WINDOWS FIREWALL --> EXCEPTIONS ---> tick "rpcapd"
If its not in the exceptions list, then you'll have to locate it in the WinPcap folder in the destination where you had saved the program during setup/installation.
As for that issue where the small WIFI icon turn from green to red, that shows either 2 things;
1. your ethernet LAN is unstable
2. you had not set in the INFRASTRUCTURE under the WIFI SETTING to use the proper Ethernet hardware.
*Look into your NETWORK CONNECTION and see the CONNECT to find out which hardware your Cable LAN is running on.
PS: I've added 10 pictures for Mario Kart DS in the Preview Section in the tutorial.
