Cannot reset Shrek Smash n Grab on DS Lite

My son has completed the game and wants to reset it to the 'out-of-the-box' state where courses and characters that he unlocked through the game are reset back to being locked i.e. he only has 4 characters and 6 courses to choose from. There is no option to do this - any ideas?

    Unfortunately I don't have a card reader that will take a DS-lite game card. My laptop only has the standard one. I have deleted all the saved profiles so all 3 appear as "------" within that particular menu option. These deletes any saved user progress but does not delete/reset the unlocked courses and characters so that they are again locked. It's seems a vast oversight on behalf of the game designer. Thanks for trying though.

    I've seen these but they cost as much as the game itself cost given it is now relatively old. I've spoken with Activision and they are almost now saying it's impossible to reset so my 9 year old son has bought a game you can only play once - not good. As I said - thanks for trying.

Do you want to delete the save game and start again? If so, put your card into a card reader and a computer. Find the .SAV file of the game and delete it.

    I just want to say, you can buy a SD card adaptor for the small card that you can put on the computer. Then delete the .SAV file or if you are using R4DS then go into the folder where you have your games or at least Shrek, then press select until you see the files with.SAV. find the correct one then press X followed by A. This deletes your game data. Then when you want to view your games, press select until you can see your files with the extension .NDS only.

Are all ds lite games the same

Both games are essentially the same. I don't know if they are compatible, but they could be. The game might just translate, so there would be no need to change the language. (Not that you could even if you wanted to). If your son find out differently though, each game, as I stated before, should be the same, only in different languages.

Hope it helps~

Is it possible to reset shrek the third on nintendo ds?

You can't erase the contents of the card directly. Some games have an option in the game to erase game results. Also you can always start a new game as a new player, so buy the game. Have no fear that you can not play from the beginning.
