due to the high DOA rate with the acekard rpg i dont want to import this time.
Who said the AceKard RPG had a high DOA?
thats what i was reading in the forums here.
maybe it was cyclods?
I am pretty certain it is the CycloDS you are referring to. Here is the main thread talking about DoA / broken units and whatnot: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=67707
Yup, the CycloDS Evo is the card with high DOA rates.
You can import the R.P.G. just fine, most members here say www.bamboogaming.com is a good website to order it from.
will my m3 real saves work?
Well, it depends on what type of saves the M3 Real does, and even then, if it doesn't work, you can always use http://shunyweb.info/ which can convert any type of save into any other type.
Hope this helped.
the m3 real saves are 512kb and called *.0
i ordered from bamboogaming right now, hope im happy with my choice, dont like my m3 real that much.
thanks for help
one question remains, i read the review here at gbatemp, it says
When you turn on your DS with the Acekard R.P.G. inserted, unlike some other flash carts, the main DS menu will not be skipped. The Acekard R.P.G. shows in the main menu like any regular game pak along with its own icon.
does that mean it ALWAYS goes to the ds menu, even if auto-boot slot1 is on?
is it true the RPG does NOT support ingame reset? that would really suck
Soft-reset works. Not on 100% of roms, but it works most of the time.
Don't worry, you will be happy with your RPG. It is a pretty decent cart. Pricey, but decent.
decent my ass, its a kick ass card, money well spent, f*ck a r4
Keep in mind, I have gotten a warning through PM for acting too "fanboyish"(I think that's the word I was accused of) of the AK. I am trying to sound as fair and respectable as I can be.
Basically, the Acekard boots like a normal cartridge, so autoboot slot-1 etc works normally. The 'insta-boot' cards toggle a special 'demo' bit in the header that tells the BIOS to instantly boot. Why this is done, I'm not sure. I think it's used in the demo cartridges at game stores.
If you want to skip the health and safety warning, just FlashMe your DS.
Also, it appears that it might be possible to change the bootloader (and thus the header) to turn autoboot on if you want it. We'll see.
Ah thanks TD-Linux, I've always wondered what the mechanism was which allowed some flash carts to skip the health&safety screen without needing FlashMe.
I got mine from http://shop.01media.com/
I think they are based in Poland but It only took about a week to arrive on my door step in the UK. Also, unlike most of the places stocking them they supply a free USB cable for the NAND
I got mine swell, from that store, but now I think it was a bit overpriced there.
My RPG from bamboogaming.com came with a usb cable.
how long did shipping take for bamboogaming?
i chose express, which usually means 3-5 days from anywhere in the world to anywhere. but it took them 3 days for just leaving customs in shanghai...
I live near DC and it took exactly 7 days for express. It even came on a sunday.
