Lo guys. I've read many threads and tried getting my head around this... My kids have DS Lites (origi FW never touched, updated or anything) and I run acekard 2i's on them both (orig cards) under akaio 1.8.7 I'm planning on buying them nice shiny new NDS's as their old lites are starting to look worse for wear and have some dodgy dead areas of screen. I was thinking of buying them DSI XL's each but considering it's only 50 GBP's more for N3DS's I thought this maybe an option in an attempt at saving me from buying them N3D'S at Christmas when I'm sure they will ask for them. So I'm under the impression that I can run normal DS software that I normally run under akaio on the 3DS, but not 3DS games ? Would that be correct ? I thought that and then I see seen this thread... http://gbatemp.net/t296004-super-monkey-ball-3d They guy has posted to a 3DS rom (that I assume will be removed as soon as a moderator sees it). Does this mean the 3Ds has now been hacked and 3DS roms now work on acekard 2i's ? I'm baffled. I don't mind not being able to use 3DS roms as it still gives the option to use the other features the 3DS offers and gives the choice to use original 3DS carts. I'd appreciate some advice, without overloading me with too much jargon. Would I be best to buy the N3DS's or play safe and go for the DSI XL's ? Much appreciate any help offered. Keas.
