About DraStic

Post by Juan Vargas » Tue Apr 19, 2016 5:31 pm

Hi! I've finally bough DraStic (thanks to Kyousuke753 for giving me a play store gif card so I could get it), but because of my country, I had to change my account to another country where gif cards are available (and it worked). So in this post I want you to ask me some question (of course, if you want :) )

It is necessary to extract the 7z or RAR files to .nds?
It is recommended to download the games european versions or USA versions (or there's no problem)?
Can I change the names of my games (as I said in another post) to other names (example: "0543-Mario Kart DS EU M5 (Xenophobia).nds" to just "Mario Kart DS.nds?

Thank your for answer me :D

1) .nds is reccommended
2) whatever country you live in will do
3) yes you can rename them

You can use .zip files to save a little space if you absolutely need to, but you end up using more RAM if you go this route.... plus it is one more thing that could go wrong if you are having an issue. Not sure about 7zip and rar though, but plain zip works.

DraStic and for that matter the DS itself is region free so it does not matter besides language... So use the version in a language that is most comfortable to you

And I can mix the games with different regions (por instance, can I have New super mario bros. USA version in the same folder with Pokemon Black EU version)?

Yes, DraStic doesn't care about the game regions at all.
