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.


Good Luck!

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.

    Note: Interference can be a big problem too. Again, check to see how your signal is in the DS chat function, if it's a pretty weak connection between the DS's get closer together, and if that doesn't work, then it may be an interference issue.

    I, myself, have never had an interference issue, but if the two DS's are facing each other at nearly point-blank range and getting from weak to no signal, then head to another room and try again. My father's computer room is the WORST for interference; it takes nearly 2 minutes for my DS to connect to the Wii in there (again this is wireless) but outside of the room (across the house) The signal is so perfect the connection is nearly instant.

Can I hook my Nintendo DS lite up to play through my portable in car DVD player?


You can't.
The Nintendo DS lite does not have any type of Video Output, so there is no way to play it on a TV or DVD player.

DS Lite Internet


Option 1: Your DS could not have a wireless access point to connect to, Make sure you have that, And, If it doesn't fix it, Proceed to Option 2.

Option 2: Your Game may not have Wi-Fi, If you have the box, Look at the back, Does it have wireless icons? If not, That game doesn't have wireless, Also, There is a small blue circle on the front of the game that means Over-The-Internet play. Also, GBA games cannot play Multiplayer on the NDS. Also, You and the other player may need to have each-other's Friend codes to play.

If you are still having the problem, See here.

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite


You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

Accessories


To use the Nintendo DS lite, you need bare minimum:

1. Games
2. A way to charge the battery
3. Stylus (for some games)

So if you don't have the stylus yet, that is the thing to get.

I have included a link below to show you just how many other accesories are available for the DS, in case you decide to upgrade your play later on, you'll know what there is. Most are non essentials, just interesting to see.
