    I've been using an old supercard for a long time and recently decided to pick up an Acecard. I own a regular DS Lite and for some odd reason I thought that getting an Acecard 2i would be an intelligent idea. With a regular DS would I have been better going with the Acecard 2. I've been doing some research and from what I can tell certain homebrew programs wont work on the Acecard 2i, moonshell 2 for example. Any help is much appreciated.

    All homebrew work including MoonShell 2. The Acekard (not Acecard), is an excellent flashcart and I highly recommend you to use one. I suggest you to get the "i" version just in case you decide to buy a DSi later. The "i" version is usually only a few dollars extra anyway.

    Cool, I think that was probably my thinking when I purchased it. So all homebrew and such is compatible with the 2i? Goodstuff, i've already ordered it so I was a little worried.

    In my opinion you made the right decision.

    I feel that the Acekard 2i being newer and backwards compatible across all the DS lines (Phat, Lite, and i) will be the one that developers will concentrate on in the future.

    In any event, you are purchasing a great card. I am very happy with mine.
