    A flashcart with a really good compatibility with DS games would be the Acekard 2i. Got mine in 2010, and it still works like a charm! :yaynds:

    I forgot
    For SNES emulation you want the Supercard DSTwo, it's about $30+ which is a little bit more expensive than others because of an extra CPU in the card so you can use it as a GBA/SNES Emulator as well as play DS games. If SNES emulation doesn't really interest you enough to spend the extra cash, the Acekard 2i is a great card for about $13-$18. Has great compatibility, fast updates, and an easy to us UI.

    Here:

    Acekard 2i: If you want to play NDS games, it has a good NES emulator and a meh SNES emu. Cheap as well!
    Supercard DSTWO: The expensive one, it plays NDS, GBA(Gameboy Advance games thanks to a special chip), SNES, NES and many other roms. It is rather expensive but works great!

    The best one is the DSTwo.
    It's been that way for a long time, too.

    Best is the Supercard DSTWO otherwise the Acekard 2i is pretty good as well.

    Depends if you want AKAIO or Wood.
    They cost around the same, but from memory R4i gold is a bit cheaper.

    But isn't it that Acekard was more reliable than the R4?

    There's nothing wrong with R4i gold with Wood R4 (it is updatable and has a great firmware). It is the other R4s that are crap.

    Well i'll just take your word for that but my one of my friend had an R4i gold and it broke down and had alot more problems than my SCDS2 and I tried my friend's Acekard and it works great.

    Back on the DS I used EDGE before they stopped supporting it and it lasted longer than my friend's R4. On the 3DS/DSi I bought a SCDS2 and it lasted longer than my friend's R4i Gold (and he complained) so I'm gonna say stay away from R4 and get an Acekard instead if you have a budget.

    Also is it just me or are you stalking me today :wtf:?

    Well you quote every single post of mine so there is no way that i should feel lonely. And this is going way off topic.
