    Just felt like typing, apologies if this is the wrong place to post.
    But what's everyone's DS timeline?

    Heres mine.

    Pre-November 21, 2004 - Acknowledged the soon to exist DS series. Still playing GBASP at this time.

    November 21, 2004 - DS Phat came to existance.

    March 2, 2006 - DSL came to existance.

    Somewhere near 2007 - Finally decided to buy a DSL, acknowledged the existance of Flashcarts.

    -Saw the pricetags of the comercial carts and unknown game contents. Bought Supercard. (Slot 2 device)

    (Yea, i never bought a single comercial game card in my DS life. I am sorry, Nintendo, at least i paid for your consoles.)
    (GBC,GBA,GBASP,DSL,DSI,Wii)

    -Realising the games doesnt work on Supercard (cannot save)

    -Bugged the retailer.

    -Didnt get a fix for 2 weeks.

    -used Google.

    -Found GBATemp (best find ever)

    -...Ah, so Ryuusei no Rockman needs an Arm7 fix, good to know.

    -Fixed RnR for Supercard.

    -Started raping roms, have trouble converting them to ds.gba.

    1 month later-
    I just said FUCK IT, and bought an original R4 at around... USD 25 or so. I dont remember, but it was dirt cheap compared to online prices.

    And happily ever after.

    Recent:
    -Found out that some cheats doesnt show up on R4.

    -Applied patch.

    -Still sucks.

    -Applied more patchs.

    -Sucks even harder.

    -R4CCE downloaded.

    -Spend half an hour editing cheat file every update.

    -Get disappointed in the recent lack of update of Narin's cheat database (it use to update everyday, but i dont blame anyone)

    Eventually,i said FUCK IT,again, reformatted my SD, and

    July 1 2009: Converted to full YSMenu user. (Why didnt i do this earlier.)

    What about you guys?

    Sometime in 2007 - DSL, children of mana and brain age.
    Sometime in 2008 - r4
    Sometime in 2009 - stopped playing DS.
    Sometime in 2010 - start playing the DS again maybe.
    Sometime in 2011 - DS locked away till I find enjoyment in DS games again.

    lol, by 2011, you will treat DSL something like PS1 nowadays.

    But yea...with so much good games from other game consoles... motivations to touch Wii and/or any nintendo consoles are....

    I'm not rich, I just don't have many hobbies outside of gaming. Those that I do have don't cost much at all, so I can put more into my gaming.

    Christmas 2005 - Got DS Phat

    June 2006 - Got DSL on release

    July 2006 - Friend got slot 2 M3 adapter. I was jealous.

    March 2007 - Nintendo HQ lets me trade in my White DSL for a black one through my warranty (yay for living in WA)

    May 2008 - Realize existence of non-complicated, slot-1 flashcarts

    June 2008 - Ordered CycloDS along with a 4GB class 2 (I had no idea about classes) microsd

    Summer 2008 - Joins GBAtemp, learns tons of stuff about the DS scene, pirates a ton of DS games, buys EZFlash 3in1

    Fall 2008 - Ordered 8GB Class 6 microsd. Was extremely buggy. Now it's in my camera.

    Now - Pretty much same thing as a year ago. I have the perfect skins on my CycloDS, everything is organized perfectly, and I have a ton of unfinished games.

    I just realized a while ago that I've had my CycloDS for over a year, and I haven't had a single complaint with it. After a few months, I figured out how easy it was to patch roms and got a ton of (J) games with english patches, along with the DS browser patched. I actually have boughten two DS games since I got my CycloDS. Peggle DS and Henry Hatsworth. I also plan on buying Scribblenauts and Worms Open Warefare 2 (my most recent addiction).
