    I have searched the forum but no answer was enough good.
    Then I'll make the question.
    What flashcard is better?
    I am searching a card with 100% compatibility or near with every DS & DSI game.
    I hear everywhere Nintendo must still make a game only for the DSI and then we don't know if this card can work in the future.
    If is sure future games can't work on this cards I will wait until makers work the 3° generation but if is only necessary a upgrade I will buy it now.
    I need a card who can play DSI games like idolmaster or imagine (only example, I don't play that).

    Thank you.

    What flashcard is better?

    depends on your personal preference. the M3 has features such RTS and attractive firmware with sakura ak can boast 100% rom compatability (with AKAIO) wit its GUI being no slouch.

    I don't think either card will run a DSi only game due to them running the DSi as it were a regular DS but I could be proved wrong. It's a wait and see situation.

    The AK can play DSi enhanced games but only in DSi mode.

    From what you're asking I'd recommend the AK2i.

    okay i only have an acekard......., but i can kinda guarantee it bypasses everything i throwed at it, i mean i copy and pasted a KH 385/2 days rom without doing anything(no hex, no patching, no anything, the acekard stills played it without any notable problem i am on day 149 now with only 5 freeze because i skipped the scene , and it got great support too, i am getting an m3i zero next

    for dsi games: since dsi mode is not unlocked yet and all flashcart run on ds mode,there's no way to run a dsi feature of a game
    for example
    idolmaster can be played on acekard2i with akaio you just cannot access the dsi camera with it

    Then the acekard is the only one who can actually play DSi games?
    And sorry, but is for being sure, you are saying the games now out for DSi don't use the DSi function or the flashcards can't emulate them?

    they play DSi hybrid games in DS mode. It doesn't use the DSi features at all. eg Idolmaster would work the same on your DSi and my DS lite.

    flashcart cannot emulate them, at least not yet, most card can play dsi game without the dsi feature and no dsi ware either if that is what you are thinking

    Thanks to you all, the info I have gathered is enough good.
    I hope they don't make a perfect card after I have ordered.

    Note: I choose the Acekard.
