    Hi guys,

    So I got another question lol.

    I ended up (by accident) buying both of these carts:

    1) r4i Gold Plus Deluxe (http://www.etcome.com/product/r4i-gold-plus-deluxe-edition-v1-4-3-for-3ds-dsi-dsi-xl-ll-dsl-ds.html)
    2) r4i Gold 3DS (http://www.digitopz.com/r4i-gold-3ds-flashcard-for-nintendo-3ds-p-216.html)

    Now this is for a 3DS mind you. I'm wondering, which should I keep (ie which is the better of the two).


    The first one was cheaper, but also came with a small stand and an adapter for the entire cart (instead of just for the microSD card).

    The second one was more expensive, and came with just the an adapter for the microSD card.


    I don't have a ds lite or phat to flash the carts with by the way.


    Any help is great!

    Thanks guys =).

    Second link's not loading for me right now, but if it's the card from r4ids.cn or r4idsn.com then it's the better one from what I see.




    I don't understand why you need to be told this 5 times...

    Well I've read every reply to all my other threads, and I'm still not clear on it.

    The first card is from r4idsn.com, the second from r4ids.cn. If there's no difference between the cards (except for price) then either one had a larger markup than the other, or one has a better build quality.

    By the way, the gold plus says on the back it supports save states, and the gold 3ds does not. I don't know if loading wood makes all that pointless or not.

    No, the first cart is NOT from r4idsn.com. It's from r4ids.com, meaning it's NOT the cart with official wood support (and yes, save stating would be done via the firmware).

    You need to be EXTREMELY careful with the URLs.

    Woah you're right!

    Thanks, now I know which one to keep =).

    I'm going to take a look to see why people use wood so much.

    'Cause it's updated properly, which brings the R4 carts in-line with the others (like the Acekard and DSTwo and such) for game compatibility.
