    I'm looking to get a new flashcard for my DS Lite, but I need it to support autobooting of a .nds file. That is, it loads a specified .nds file the second it boots up. I just want something cheap, under $15. My M3 Real can do this already if I downgrade to Sakura 1.11 and rename the file to defaultn.nds, but I'd prefer a separate card for my purposes. So what do you all recommend? Preferably something through DealExtreme, as that's the site I always use.

    What is it you want to do with this card, having it boot a .nds file automatically?

    Acekard 2.1 [​IMG] Tell me why or I'll kill you first [​IMG] Wait does autorun the last thing you ran count? It autoruns the last file you used.

    Yeah, go to the system settings and turn on autorun...then run a .nds file, and the next time you boot the AK2 it'll automatically open that file.

    Sounds good. Thanks for the info. [​IMG]

    EDIT: This one? Or another one on DX?

    Yeah go for it. [​IMG] Why DX why? Why is the compact version more expensive than the version with a card reader?

    I noticed that! Why the hell would they make a compact version more expensive than a normal version? Makes no sense to me. [​IMG]
    EDIT: This card is cheaper. But, does it support auto-booting, and is it a genuine DSTT?

    Nevermind what firmware it has on it already, once I autoboot to a NDS file, it won't matter what firmware is on the card. [​IMG] This card's gonna be for homebrew - I have my M3 Real for ROMs.

    With the Acekard 2, it'll still show a "loading..." screen before it autoboots a game, so if you're trying to be really sneaky it'll probably raise some questions.

    I've got no need to be sneaky. Just as long as it auto-boots, I don't care how it does it. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the info, hyun. However, I'll buy it from DealExtreme because it's cheap and I don't care how long it takes to get here, just as long as it gets here. Until it arrives, I have my M3 Real to tie me over. [​IMG]
