How to restart an NDS Game?

Once a game was selected in the Nintendo DS start menu, there is AFAIK no way to return to the menu. The only method is to switch the device off and on again. Luckily the NDS boots pretty fast.

For homebrew games started from the R4DS menu, there is a method called Soft-Reset. Before starting the game make sure it is enabled. It is indicated by a green light in the top right corner of the lower screen. If it's red just tap it or press the right shoulder button. To return to the menu from a running game then, just press all buttons (LRYXBA) at the same time.

Why do my Images look like Crosses when I upload the Site?

Broken Image Example Broken Image Example So you created your first HTML page and everything looks fine locally, but when you upload it to your webserver, suddenly your images won't work anymore. Instead you see a graphic like the ones on the right.

This is something that happened to me as well, when I started learning HTML. The problem most probably is you developing on Windows. Windows uses a case insensitive file system. This means if your image is named “Picture.jpg” but you reference it as “picture.jpg” in your HTML code, everything will work fine.

However most web servers run on some kind of Unix or Linux operating system which are case sensitive. This means your HTML no longer works on the web server. To fix the problem just make sure you use the same case in your filenames and HTML. To be on the safe side always use lower case.

How can I communicate with my Wii?

AFAIK there is no way to communicate with the Wii, except for using the Wii remote controllers. However there might be games coming which will open some other ways of communicating with them via Wireless LAN.

One example is Pokemon Battle Revolution which is said to be able to communicate with Pokemon Diamond and Pearl on the Nintendo DS.

By default no network ports are open on the Wii.

How to configure a new Plugin in DokuWiki?

If a plugin needs some configuration it should register the needed options with DokuWiki's configuration manager. It then will have it's own section at the bottom of the config page. But many plugins don't need any special configuration.

If you can't access the config manger because you're running DokuWiki without ACL setup or if the plugin didn't register it self properly you can configure it manually. Check the the plugin description for available config options and add them to your conf/local.php file.
