    Now that I've (almost) got a DS Lite, my old DS Phat is in the process of being fixed by Old School Gamer, I was wondering:
    I have a DS-X(the first ones that came out)
    and a SuperCard MiniSD slot-2 too.

    Seeing everybody talking about the new shiny R4s and Cyclos, I want to ask:

    -Did I come to the party too late? I only bought it a few months ago [​IMG]

    -Does it still run new games? Are there still updates coming out?

    -I'd hate to buy a new flash card, as I probably can't for some time :/

    Thanks.

    Put GBA on your Supercard and NDS on your DS-X = SuperX coolness.

    The problem is I have 2 DS, and I'd want, for example, to play with my bro DS games multi-player.

    You may want to use one DS with your DS-X,
    The other DS would require your SuperCard PLUS a PASSCARD device.
    You can pick up an action replay for DS for only $20 at walmart to use as a passcard(hold select when bootup),
    or you can just purchase an R4 w/ 1gig Kingston from dealextreme.com for $45.

    Just remember that download play still isnt 100% when it comes to most flashcards.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, but I already flashed my DS.
    I'm asking if the SuperCard slot-2 is still updated and runs new DS games.

    yep supercard still makes updates, since alot of people still buy slot 2 supercards since the slot 1 supercard ds one does not play gba roms.

    The old sc-sd slot2 is still pretty fine, update it to the latest firmware and you'll have realtime AR cheats as a bonus... it will only struggle on Tony Hawkes games and Castlevania POR.

    I played sk8land and Castlevania PoR just fine. Downhill Jam (which sucks) has slowdowns for me though.
