Can someone test this please? :D I am at work right now and unavailable to test it:

According to this:

https://github.com/polaris-/nintendo_dwc_emulator/wiki/Nintendo-DS-Download-Content

YDQE Dragon Quest IX - Sentinels of the Starry Skies (USA) (En,Fr,Es)
YDQJ Dragon Quest IX - Hoshizora no Mamoribito (Japan)
YDQP Dragon Quest IX - Sentinels of the Starry Skies (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)

Instructions on how to connect here:

Proabably will take a hit here since some unmentionables are included in the link above but what the hey...

(Edit) YDQP NoSSL succeeded.
But why it's Alchaid 4 and no item updates?

YDQJ NoSSL succeeded.
(Edit) Item does update.
That was one of the last offerings, was it not?

Sorry that I didn't realize my testing ROM is EUR version (YDQP).
But it's still weird that its message is Alchaid 4 and it doesn't renew the shop list.

Probably because the packet dump they got was from the most recent offering, still if this could help unlock the 60+ quests that would be great.

From the github site(https://github.com/polaris-/nintendo_dwc_emulator/wiki):

Action Replay DS codes for bypassing SSL are in the works. This will allow retail cards to connect to the new server. You will need an Action Replay DS(i) or flash card to use these.

Highly encouraging!

Is it a static list of items from Alchaid 4; that is, the items pulled for the specific game file that downloaded them? Or can they still vary?

I'm not sure I fully understand this as a work-around, but I think I might. I'm looking at the NDS noSSL Rom Patcher. Is anyone able to confirm this workflow?

I use the NDS rom patcher with a DQIX rom, then connect to the DQVC download, in-game, via an NDS emulator, save the game after the download, then I can upload the save data back into my physical copy of the DQIX cart (using my NDS Adaptor) and I now have access to the shop?

Edit: Ah, looks like the instructions are out of order. There are more steps after the rom patch...

Edit again: okay, requires flash cart. Dang.

No I believe your logic is fine.

1. Pull the savefile off the physical cart.

2. Follow the steps using an emulator and rom to gain access to the online DQVC.

3. Re-upload the savefile back to the physical cart.

You should have whatever unlockables that you gained from the rom version.

They are working on making this system available for retail cards though so kudos to them.

Also the items from Alchaid 4 I believe that's stuck unless they get a packet dump or find a way of changing the flags on what items to offer, kind of like the seasonal seller in MH.
