Hi did you try the calibration test in the ds settings. And if it is a new ds there might be something wrong with it. Or sometimes when you hold it at a weird angle it looks like you're touching one thing but you're touching something different.

Touch screen is all over the place on Nintendo DS Console

It may need to be recalibrated. If you already know exactly what I'm talking about, and have already tried, then this sometimes happens with the DS. If not, start your DS without a game in either of the slots. then when you get to the screen where it says pictochat, download play, and all the other stuff, look at the middle of the bottom of the bottom screen. Press the tiny DS there. then touch the recalibrate button. Then touch the things it tells you to touch. All these steps can be done with the buttons, but use the touch screen to recalibrate. Hope this helped.

How do I change the language in cooking mama to english

i bought cooking mama for ds and it worked perfectly in english...
when you buy the game, if the title in english usually the game would be in english otherwise you could return it to the store.
the other solution,if you want to, you could buy flash card for ds such edge and r4, and download the game online...
because when you download the game, they have tag behind the title.
for example: cooking mama 2 (US) which in english
cooking mama (GER) which in germany etc

Have bought Cooking Mama, but can't play it in English (the default on the console is English, but it still starts up in Italian and there's no language option that i can find...)

It's a faulty batch - if you call 505 Games, they will send a pre-paid envelope out to you so you can return it, and then they will send you a new one (plus a free game for your troubles, which is nice!)

Top half dont work


1. IF you have R4 card in your DS, take it out.

2. Go to Settings (Little icon on the bottom of the touch screen)

3. Select Pink button

4. Select "GBA Mode" (pink button on the right)

5. Select "Touch screen"


This is mainly affective for GBA games, not DS games unfortunately.
If you are really that desperate to play DS games properly, then either hope you can still claim it on warranty and/or buy a brand new DS (maybe even the new DSi).

Hope I helped

I want to play a game with cooking mama tamagotchi and mario

These three characters are owned by three different companies.
Though as some arcade game players might know, Tamagotchi was in a Mario Kart Arcade 2 game. But these machines can be really had to find.
I'd suggest finding a real Tamagotchi toy or finding the old Game Boy Color Tamagotchi game as these follow the original pet simulation formula.
The Tamagotchi games for the DS are all mini game collections with Tamagotchi themed things.

As for Cooking mama,
Cooking Mama 1
Cooking Mama 2
Gardening Mama (released last month or so)
Plus two Gardening Mama games for the Wii.

For Mario I'd sugget;
New Super Mario Bros
Super Mario 64 DS
Mario Kart DS

You can pick these all up from your local game shop for a decent price or better these days.

Tamagotchi can be hard to find, though some gameshops will carry older games.

I hope that helps. Good luck.
