    As far as i can see the best card to play DS games on the DSi-XL and new 3DS-XL running the latest firmware are these R4 cards unfortunately when i started to look i came across several of them: R4 Gold Pro,Dual Core,3DS RTS,SDHC RTS Lite to name a few so which R4 card is the best one ?

    Supercard DSTWO are by far the best DS flash cart you can ply gba/Snes/gb roms also. Problem is the DSTWO is out of production in preparation for the DSTWO+ a DS/3DS Hybrid cart.

    I have owned many R4 over the years and imo they are junk compared to the DSTWO. SuperCard does great job manufacturing these cars, the solder joints look great vs the r4 which tend to have cold solder joints that break over time killing the cart.

    If you can find a SuperCard DSTWO for a decent price as they have skyrocketed in price by shady reseller scalpers then get it as its the best dedicated DS flash cart and will most likely stay the best untill one day KrikZZ makes a DS Cart.

    Is this the one that runs wood 1.64? If so that's a great price. I have one and it works great in my n3ds on fw 9.0

    I don't know what those are, but what else can you want from a card apart from drag-n-drop roms, nice interface and total compatibility? If the dual cores are like the DSTWO with the built in cpu designed for cheat and emulators and stuff i'm not interested, All I want from flashcarts is an authentic experience.

    I mean I have a GBA for GBA games, a SNES for SNES games etc. I don't like playing 'emulated' games because they are never 100% accurate and when you grew up playing those games the differences are really noticeable.

    Ive ended up ordering a R4i Gold RTS from here http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149 as it worked out a bit cheaper £11.19 delivered, seems to have great features and great support which is essential, the RTS feature i always used on my old Supercard One and loved it.
