    Hi

    I currently have a DSTT and am really becoming frustrated with the lack of updates and such. So I just want to buy something cheap and simple that works with new releases. But before I buy something and it turns out the games don't work on there either I thought I would ask the GBAtemp community.

    I was just going to buy this R4 from ShopTemp http://shoptemp.com/products/R4-DS-Revolut...-Lite-p-29.html

    Is this a good choice?? Do new releases work with it??

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    Acekard 2.1 or 2.i with Akaio --> Anti Piracy Bypass

    Best choice right now: You can use larger mSD cards (up to 32 GB).

    The original R4DS with Wood will work with new releases when Wood gets an update.

    You have three choices for carts that have proper support/updates.
    [*]The original R4.
    NOT "R4-III Upgrade", NOT "R4-SDHC", NOT "R4i", NOT "R4 Gold", NOT "R4 Red", NOT "R4 King"...
    NOT ANYTHING ELSE WITH "R4" IN THE NAME! JUST "R4 Revolution".
    • Price: $6 from shoptemp.com
    • Advantages: Can use Wood R4, giving it compatibility with modern games.
    • Disadvantages: No DSi support, limited to memory cards 2GB and lower, no special features.
    • Rank: The cheap card for somebody that just wants to play some games on a DS/Lite.
    [*]Acekard 2i
    • Price: $15 from shoptemp.com
    • Advantages: Can use AKAIO, giving it compatibility with modern games. Can update itself and cheats over wifi, supports the DSi/XL, and supports memory cards up to 32GB.
    • Disadvantages: Can't do any of the special stuff the DSTwo can.
    • Rank: Mid-range card for people that want to play lots of games on a DSi/XL with some extra features.
    [*]Supercard DSTwo
    • Price: $35 from shoptemp.com
    • Advantages: Supports the DSi/XL, can update itself even if the DSi won't run it, supports memory cards up to 32GB, real-time save (save states), in-game guide (show text and images from walkthroughs without having to reset the game), "free cheat" which lets you modify memory while the game is running, GBA and SNES emulator, slow motion, and more.
    • Disadvantages: The onboard processor and such means it eats into your battery life a bit.
    • Rank: Pretty much the ultimate card right now.

    Though I have to say, if you're not willing to spend more than $6 on a flash cart, maybe that's why you keep getting the crap end of the deal...

    If you got money, just buy the Supercard DSTwo
    For me, its the better one right now.
    If you dont want to spend a lot of money, just buy an acekard.
