Oh! loud and clear - can you guide me through it a little better. I need for the 2 Nintendos to be connected to interact. How do I get them talking to each other - you are explaining to someone who thinks twitter is early morning bird calls.
Do you have the booklet for the game? Also, do you both have the game cartridge, one each? Some games will let you play two player if you've only got the one between you, but some won't. There should be a multiplayer option on the first screeen. The one where you start the game to play. If there is, click that and it will search for other DS's, when it finds your grandsons it should ask him if he wants to join your game. You just answer the questions on each of your DS's as they are asked, and you'll get taken to the two player game.
I hope I explained that ok, I'm going to have a ring around and see if any of my sons friends have it so I can guide you better. If the above doesn't help let me know. I'm not promising but I will try and find a copy and set up here. Then I will be able to guide you point by point. Only if I can find the game though.
Hi Heather, if you want to play together on dragon quest 9 you need to be up to Stornaway level. If you both are...go into the inn there is a character...a celestrian called Pavo. Go up to her, click the A button when the exclamation mark appears and select I think it is visit other worlds. it will then look for other people playing Dragon quest around you (30m range). If the other player has opted to host other players you will then be asked if you wish to join in with their game. Its a lot simpler than it sounds. But multiplayer on DQ9 needs all players that want to participate to be up to at least Stornaway
