Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
We have 2 nintendo ds lites and want to play games against each other, what accessories do i need and do i need 2 of the same games. thanks. maria.
You don't need the same game, but you need it to be a multiplayer game. For example, imagine you're playing Mario Kart. If your friend has the game, press 'Multiplayer' on the screen and then press 'Friend has Mario Kart' and then just put your DS near your friend(s)'s DS and it will connect. If your friend doesn't have it, press 'Friend doesn't have Mario Kart' and then your friend goes onto 'DS Download Play' and then your game will show up on your friend's screen. They press it. Then you can play together. If it's a game like Zoo Tycoon, it is single player only, and the only way you could play together is to sit next to each other and chat. Hope this helps.

Yes you need two games unless they say ds download compatible.

First, it depends on what game it is, NOT ALL GAMES have a DS Download feature.
If you are using a game with the DS Download feature, have the host DS set up the game, this would just be going through the multiplayer then DS Download function.
Next, make sure you both are in the same area (10 or so feet), basically if you can be in the DS Chat with your Local Wireless Connection, you can use your DS Download feature.
While the host DS is sending the signal, the other DS will have a feature in the main DS menu (If you have auto-start on, hold start while starting up the DS and going past the warning screen), it will be called DS Download Play.
Have the person receiving the signal click that option and their DS will search for any games being sent in the general area. Then all the person with the receiving DS has to do is click the icon and he/she will connect with the hosting DS.
The receiving DS will not keep the game on the hardrive on the DS, but he/she will be able to play with you; your best bet however is to get a second cartridge, but that part is your call.
