    [​IMG]Datel has just released a new Action replay, with games 'n music captivity. This new device can use cheats, watch movies, music, play homebrew games and has a saves manager. Could we use this to play commercial games? probably not but if you just like homebrew, play original games and want cheats for them then this is something for you. http://us.codejunkies.com/Products/Action-...__EF000642.aspx.

    I sold my AR, and broke my GnM, took it apart, doesn't always work now.
    It would be good, even with out SDHC support, since homebrew probably take up more that 2GB.
    Certainly NOT going to get. [​IMG]

    Music and movies do though. Actually, that's the only reason why SDHC is interesting to me. Sure, 4 GB or more seems nice, but I don't need it at all.

    I still do. [​IMG] Never did think it was THAT slow. :S

    Oh yeah, music and videos, you would need moonshell for music though, it played like shit. Videos were actually pretty good, I could watch anime subs at school and read the text. [​IMG]

    Also should have DLDI off the bat, or Datel are even more assholes than they already are.

    You can already do everything this can with a GnM (or any flashcart) and Nitro Hax, though, so I don't see the point.

    Whenever I played decent quality vids on moonshell they lagged like hell, with a proper flashcart, there are no problems at all. Also, switching songs was pretty slow in moonshell on the GnM.

    You know they are banking on this getting cracked to play ROMs if they want to sell a decent amount.

    I think you maybe forgot one of the most interesting details from that page!

    It's about time a new saves management tool was released, ever since they ditched the Action Replay Max Duo!

    And the software also works on vista, the old AR software didn't.

    No shit, you can't exactly plug a cart into it if there's nothing sticking out. [​IMG]

    It's $35, so, not cheap.

    Maybe if you buy it somewhere else it'll be cheaper, but whatever.

    Isn't there some hack to make this play commercial ROMs? But even if there were, I wonder how this would compare with DS flash cards. Obviously it wouldn't have any fancy features but at least it will support cheat codes. [​IMG]

    but the cheats code wont work with a rom(until someone hack it), u will need a real game to enable cheats. unlike flashcarts which can do everything(no sex ,they cant)

    Except that the MMD was completely different from this. The GnM couldn't play backups due to the way it was contructed; there was no way to do it without modifying the board; basically they bottlenecked the memory so that anything larger than the DS internal memory wouldn't run. It could run all those captured WiFi demos though. I'm 99.9% certain that this uses the same board as the GnM, and they just updated the firmware so it could be used as an AR as well. There will be NO chance of running commercial backups on this unless the game is less than 4 MB.
