I noticed there is a passme.nds file in the download. So does this need to be on the cart in order to use the passme function? And do you have to actually start the passme.nds file for it work, or can you just hit a key combination and it boots to the slot 2 cart?

And also, I've been told that with the DS-Linker 139 firmware, the problem with not being able to get a friend code in Animal Crossing has been fixed. Is this true for your new MK5 firmware too?

Thank you for the new firmware, and for the option to skin, and to put the saves in a separate directory.
