    Boycott Media Cart!

    Leeching off homebrew authors








    [​IMG]
    Yes, boycott Media Cart! The Media Cart is a new Nintendo DS flash kit straight from Taiwan. Why boycott? Simply because the folks behind the Media Cart have taken several homebrew authors applications, changed them around slightly, re-branded them and stuffed them straight into the Media Cart software package without even a hint of their origin. Homebrew such as DragonMinded's DSOrganize, Lick's Media Player, Moonlight's Moonshell and possibly more have been "incorporated" into the package.

    We urge all of you to avoid the product completely and we hope that no import stores begin carrying this abomination of a product.

    It doesn't even play ROMs anyway. Pathetic cart. All the other flashcards beat this one hands down, and I'm sure many people won't buy it.

    Exactly. I wouldn't accept it even if I got it for free, TBH. It's stealing other developers work and selling it for money. [​IMG]

    They should be giving the homebrew devs a cut of the money.

    This does suck, but none of us were going to buy it or recommend it to anyone before we knew this.

    I quite like the media player frontend as this would be good for my kids for movies and mp3 but thats about it. would not buy it or recomend it to anyone as I use Dsorganise all the time.

    weird how they don't allow DS games, but allow NES roms etc..

    I'd bet they're just too lazy to commit to updating the firmware when a new rom is dumped that it can't run.

    It's a grat idea, homebrew and media cart only for ds, not playing comercial roms isn't that bad, the bad thing about this cart is that it's a ripoff for homebrewers, anyway if authours were recognised and source available it would be a nice card to buy.

    Forgetting about the "OMG STOLEN CODEZ" I honestly can't see anyone buying this at all.

    Has homebrew function... but does not play roms

    Or you can get the R4/M3/other carts which does the homebrew function AND play roms.

    Hopefully people will be smart to realise that and yeah, I'm not surprised that China is doing this.
