Can someone explain to me why every single time I try to save the Nintendo WFC Connection Settings it gets erased upon restarting the emulator? I'm trying to play Dragon Quest IX with my friends but our connection settings never get saved so it can't connect us.

Edit: It's not just on Dragon Quest IX either. I've also tested this with Mario Kart DS and, while I can connect to the alternate WFC, the moment the emulator is reset the connection settings get erased.


Edit 2: Okay, so I found out the problem was that you can't use melonDS's default BIOS or else it defaults the connection settings back to whatever it was beforehand. However, now the issue is that I'm not receiving any connection in game. I connect fine and on other roms such as Mario Kart DS, I receive connection. It's just Dragon Quest IX for some reason. I know the dev team doesn't specialize in specific games, but would anyone possibly know what's happening here? Why is it just not working for this one game?

Edit 3: Now I can't connect with other people or instances for that matter. I connect to the alternate WFC fine and can search for players online but nothing happens. Even when I'm running two instances on the same PC it still cannot find anyone whether online or local. I don't understand because many other videos showcasing online multiplayer on melonDS seem to have it work flawlessly despite following the same steps.

I'm probably just stupid, but I can't get the connectivity to work at all. The connection successful message just doesn't pop up, before (when selecting melonAP) and after putting in DNS settings. I keep getting 20100. The emulator has the admin privileges, and my rom/save are in the same directory. I deleted old firmware data. I don't thiiink this is an ISP issue, since my DS/3DS/N3DS all work with Wiimmfi fine on the same network. Game is Pokemon Diamond if that matters. I can't use direct since ethernet doesn't run up to where my PC is.

So, I tried really hard but I jsut can't seem to make it work for Pokémon B&W, MacOS. Frame Limit Off, Audio Sync Off, Bind Socket On, Indirect Mode, any DNS server out of the three. Get to WFC room, can see my second character and interract, but any communication results in either an error of 84020 or simply ends with a "didn't answer'. The error is the rarer of the two.
One thing I do notice, is that it kind of stops the emulation for a second and then resumes it. When I ran the app directly from the package (terminal showing whats up) I see an error saying smth along the lines of Package sent (...) didn't pass MAC check thought it could've been the ISP but nope, phone hotspot doesn't work either, same problem. I have no clue how to try direct mode since I'd need an ethernet adapter, and "emulating" one on MacOS seems impossible since I found no real modern solutions...any advice welcome frens...

EDIT:
>be me, pepega

>start trying WFC on one machine
>spend days trying to make it work since I'm close, can see myself and no big errors, just timing out
>say frick it, copy one of the instances to second PC
>suddenly, communication is possible
>still crashing tho, hmmm
>try turning on frame limiter on high end machine since that one runs at 300FPS and low end PC at 60-70
>works
>succesfuly trade
>time lost: 3 days

Anons, if the FPS difference between the machines is too big, you need to have one on frame limit
Also, don't be like me and try to make WFC work with two instances of one machine, don't be a clown like me.

Much love, xQcL

When i switch to direct mode , my WiFi card shows as an adapter with the name "WiFi"(Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini Card), can I use the same or do I need an Ethernet connection?

Trying to set up Unova Link in Pokemon Black 2. I had managed to get WFC to work before on Pokemon Black, using the Kaeru DNS. Tested it again on Black 2, didnt work. Tried the wimmifi DNS, still didnt work. Im afraid if i try the AltWFC DNS ill still get the same result, could someone please help?

Hello, how are you?

With a friend we would like to play pokemon white/black online, we added with the friend code no problem.

The problem is that when we are in the online room, we can see each other and so on, but when we click to make a fight or exchange pokemon, it says "communication in progress" and it remains blocked on that, impossible to play together.

What I find strange is that we can see each other in the room, and we even managed to make GTS exchanges, so we are well online on the same server ect

would someone have a solution please?

thank you

What about the mobiles for connecting to WFC in MelonDS?
It needs to work everytime.
Or maybe an Idea like: In windows, Mac & Linux they can go the the window, click system then Go online mode and then It will active the online mode and we can play some online games like Mario Kart DS and Other online games.
But in Mobiles, All they have to do is tap back at the side or down, then go to settings and then tap Online, Lasty There's the way we can play online. We can turn on the online mode and it will work like Windows, Mac & Linux and we can play online games again.
That's my idea what you can change an update.
So as wireless communications/Mulitplayer, that we could play to like there is also my idea too for mulitplayer: First tap back at the side or down, tap settings, Tap Wireless and then Turn on the mulitplayer mode for playing wireless with your friends! And we can play some like 4 player or 8 player games like Mario Kart DS and Kirby Super Star Ultra. Anyway, that's all my information so yeah I hope you could update to the apps for windows, Mac, Linux and Moblies!

Recently I tried to connect with Mariokart DS and Puyo Puyo 7, emu version is 0.9.5, tested all 3 servers and cleared my previous data, but I never really successfully connected to these servers. Direct mode unusable cuz I uses wireless connection on my pc. The games keep throwing out 20110 and tell me that the wfc thing was halted, but that one 20110 fix tool don't works. is there any ways to fix these problem???

Edit:I tested the wfc on a pc that has ethernet working, the configurations are exactly same, and the game works with ethernet. Using indirect mode btw. Wireless pc still cant connect bruh

I have been getting error codes 52000 and 52100. Is there a fix for this?

52000 is "Unable to obtain an IP address". Would manually entering an IP address be the solution?

Made an account just to say that I've followed the guide exactly but I get the same error that StrangeSleuth seemed to have of getting error code: 61020

I am kind of stumped on what it means and what is causing it; In the WFC setup the connection test is successful and seems to work fine but once I am in-game in any game it spits out this error. Any ideas on what it means?

Hello, I've been trying to play FFCC echoes of time with my friend over internet for a couple days now but I keep running into the error 61020. At first I thought it was because the servers were doing maintenence or something but my friend tried on FFCC and mario kart ds and was able to get in just fine. I'm not really smart with these kinds of things so I don't really understand what's going wrong aside from maybe it not working through my router or with my ISP, but I'm not sure what to do about it. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry if this is redundant to previous users or if it seems obvious, thanks in advance.


Hey since you got the same issue I had, I want you to know you can use a free VPN to help you with this if dealing with your own router is out of the question like it was for me! (I used ProtonVPN but you can use any you personally like!)

hi, I play soulsilver and set everything the same dns1: 178.62.43.212 and dns2: 1. 1. 1. 1
but in order to see my friend code when entering the girl in the middle when I go ahead to make the connection it gives me error 20105, what do I need to do?
Should I have all the medals or the national pokedex?

Unova Link features are used in local communications, not in Wi-Fi iirc.

Drag your rom to this site: https://www.romhacking.net/hash/
And then compare the data with this site: https://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.php?page=show_record&s=28&n=4788

I keep getting this error. Does anyone knows how to fix it? Despite my attemps to change the WFC, it still won't work. :(
I'm trying to use the GTS.

You may need to execute the Extra Step of the tutorial to properly reset the WFC settings, check if this solves the issue.
