need to switch off and on each time to change games on DS?

Just a quick q for all of you out there with a R4 card - is there a reset button on the DS or do you need to switch it off and on each time you want to change games. Thanks

At the right top of the touch screen it is the "Soft Reset"; Red … At the right top of the touch screen it is the "Soft Reset"; Red indicator means the "Soft Reset" function is off; Green indicator means the "Soft Reset" function is on. The users may point on the touch screen or press "R" button to switch the "Soft Reset" On/Off. While the "Soft Reset" function is on, pressing "L+R+A+B+X+Y" can go back and forth to the game's main menu; Please do not do this while saving, as it will lead to malfunction, It is recommended to go back to main menu before you function the "Soft Reset". If the error occurs on running games, please try to turn off the "Soft Reset".

Don't know about it be quicker, but it is certainly easier just to switch off and on again!

I think it takes more battery to switch off then on.

I've tried it, it's not actually going back to the menu where all the games lists were, it is only
going back to the main menu of the game that you are playing at the time, or am I just doing it
wrong

Unfortunately I've always had to turn if on then of, right pain in the bum!

I don't think this feature works very well on the R4DS cards, works much better on the TTDS and others of it's ilk.

This works! On my DS i tend to press all the buttons together L+R . . . . and it resets me back to the "Directory" which i then click on and get all the games i have downloaded in a list.

An "On/Off" button has a finite number of times that it can be switched before it gives up working.

If you can "Soft Reset", do it.

Think you have to be careful when playing some of the fighting games while you're in soft reset mode incase you do it by accident.
I always turn mine off, its a pain, but oh well.

I have a DS lite and that does not have a soft reset button so have no choice but to turn it off and on. L and R do not work on mine either.

It's the flashcart(TTDS,Supercard, AceKard etc) that enables "Soft Reset", not the DS itself
