Anyone tried the new DSTWO +? Is it worth the upgrade?

    I have the original dstwo. Is it worth around 50$ with the shipping to have this upgrade?
    I would like to know if it is flawless for even mario RPG wich is one of my all time favorites and requires a lot of ram.
    I noticed that all the emulators it is working with have not been updated in years, and i don't think they will. so im not to keen on buying a card that has no current support.

    Nope. The emulators would have to be rewritten to take advantage of any new hardware. The emulators are already pretty so-so, and the 3DS capability... well long story short, let's just say they got really lazy and just threw their customers under a bus to make a quick buck. There is no support for this card on the 3DS side so good luck.

    edit: I don't have the cartridge, but have played around with it a bit. Repaired 2 bricks via DSTwo. So yea, not worth the money if you already have a DSTwo

    There is a dosbox core in the retroarch pack afaik, never tried it anyway, but someone here was even able to use it to boot Windows 95 on a N3DS.

    DS2linux runs a little faster if you put it on the highest setting. It might be a placebo affect though, and it was only for the ps1 emu.

    You can use DosBox on RetroArch but I've never managed to get a game to play.
