    I've been torn between an AceKard 2i and a SCDSTwo. I'm leaning toward the Acekard.

    My question concerns the backlog. How are those cards treated in the log? As Flashcards, as the original DS titles, etc...? Will either cause problems? Also, where do game files save? On the flashcart, or on the 3ds sd card?

    Much appreciated.

    Original DS titles. There will be no problems whatsoever. The game saves are located on the micro SD card in the flashcard.

    Both cards log the same way? I thought Acekard and SCDS2 loaded differently due to chipset differences. Also, I plan on using Akaio on the Acekard. Will that make a difference?

    3ds saves on the cartridge too, in fact some games can't be traded in because the sav is undeletable (e.g. RE mercanries) through the game/3ds ,though I think they can be deleted using an nds adapter plus!

    You won't lose the ability to use the eShop, there is NO WAY for Nintendo to know if you used a flashcard unless you have them repair it, and even then NOBODY has been banned from online features at all.

    You shouldn't worry- I have a Japanese Heart Gold icon in my menu. I think they'll understand if you have import games in there.

    Right, DS games aren't region locked so you can play any DS games on the 3DS. I emphasized the DS part because I'm sure someone will misread that. 3DS games ARE region locked!

    Lots of love for the SuperCard. Is it really worth paying double the Acekard?

    It's up to the developer.
    So far I'm pretty sure every 3DS game is region locked.

    It has a lot more features than the Acekard does, such as a small processor in the card itself that lets you play most GBA games and SNES games without having to use a 3-in-1, which is quite the handy feature. But I'd prefer Acekard over Supercards because 1) It's cheaper 2) it's always got great compatibility 3) Devs are very fast at updating when there is an update to the 3DS and 4) Overall a better card for people who are new and for those that only are about DS games.
