Following up on the previous post about DSi websites, I realized that there aren't very many that specifically target the DSi. So I made one. ;)

http://www.dsicade.com

This site is still work in progress. I'd love to hear some feedback on what you think works and what doesn't work. I don't have a DSi yet, feedback from DSi owners is incredibly important to me. It's the only way I can ensure the site works well. To that end, I would be very appreciative if someone could create a video of the site running on the DSi. The visual feedback would allow me to further tune the site for the console.

What will work: Nintendo DSi Web Browser
What won't work: Desktop web browsers won't look quite right
What is right out: Internet Explorer. Just forget about it.

Thanks everyone!

I must say that overall, it works quite well, although the war game is far too slow and the screens can make it look dodgy, since the space between both of the DSi screens will potentially confuse players.

Great idea, the memory game worked well enough though I didn't really understand the war game - instructions perhaps? Great idea though!

You're the second person who hasn't liked the top screen "preview" of the missiles. Therefore, consider it gone. The game is now redesigned to use the top screen for info display only and the bottom screen for gameplay. It should also be a bit faster now. Let me know!

War Games is a game where you have to stop missiles from destroying your bases/cities at the bottom of the screen. You do this by exploding munitions near the head of the contrail. Just tap the screen to explode a munition. If it touches, the contrail will disappear. If the contrail reaches your city, it gets destroyed.

Of course, if you're using a desktop browser you're going to have varying degrees of success. In that case, I would refer you back to the first post.

Speaking of which, I'm seeing a lot of Internet Explorer users in the log reports. Seriously, guys. IE won't work. At all. Sorry 'bout that, but the site for the DSi browser. Which is a standards compliant browser. (No, IE8 is not standards compliant.)

Last but not least, I'm still looking for a volunteer to create a Youtube video of the site running on the DSi. That will allow me to tune the site with greater confidence. Thanks all! And feel free to share any suggestions you might have! :)

The following video was forwarded to me:

Based on that information, I realized there was a bug in WarGames that could prevent it from functioning correctly. I've fixed the issue, so if someone could test it out and see if it works, that would be great!

First off, thanks for putting this site together. Here's some suggestions/comments:

1) More games!

2) High score rankings?

3) Music? I don't know if that's possible, just thought I'd throw it out there.

4) War Games is a lot better now that it's just on one screen.

Your wish is my command. High scores are now implemented in War Games. Touch Mii scores are on their way. :)

More games are definitely coming. Music is something I'd like to have, but sadly isn't supported by the browser. :(

Thanks for testing that! I hadn't even considered trying it on the Wii.

High scores are now online for Touch Mii. Betcha' can't roll the scoreboard... ;)

Just point your DSi at: http://www.dsicade.com

BTW, I keep forgetting to mention. You should be able to bring up the scores in each game by tapping the "A" button. Can someone test the use of "A" and make sure it works? (If you're using the Wii, it should be the same button: A)

It works fine at my DSi. How did you make this?
EDIT: I don't like the thing that if you're...death, that you must shut down your DSi.

Mostly with a lot of help from volunteers who have DSis. :)

How do you mean? You shouldn't need to shut down your DSi. If the high score screen is up, press the A button to dismiss it. If you want to leave the game, use the "back" or "address" buttons on the browser.

Does that solve the problem? Or does it actually lock up for you?

I also found another (tiny) bug. When you start War Games, I see 'game over', but when I click on it, I can play :) .

Ah, the A button works and I can use 'back and addres' :).

@Yoshii - Glad you got it working! The Game Over state is intentional. It allows the user an opportunity to get their bearings before they play. I'll see about adding some text to explain that.

@Zane - Nice work on Touch Mii! You're only 10 points away from rolling the counter!

@KitBliss - Thank you for your kind words! Hopefully you'll also like the next app I'm working on right now...
