    Okay, I've read lots of threads/faqs/guides/reviews and I still can't decide which card I should buy. Plus it looks like some info is 2 years old, some isn't, so it's hard to get a clear picture of what options I have. [​IMG]
    Here are the features I want to have on my card:

    - 100%ds roms compatibility (of course [​IMG] )
    - homebrew compatibility (I've heard there's Lode runner !!!)
    - Real time save
    - multimedia (movies !)
    - possibility to play GBA games (only possible by adding a slot 2 card if I understood correctly ?).

    Would be nice to have :

    -slow motion
    -sleep support (I haven't seen it anywhere... might be a silly question but is it supported ? I tend to use it a lot on my DS)
    -cheap would be great but I don't think i'll have that [​IMG]

    So I was thinking about getting a CycloDS, and then, someday, some expansion pack for GBA games (by the way, which one ? ). But I'm not sure I have the most up to date info about what's available now...
    Thanks for the help !

    For the about same price you can get an M3i Zero + EZ Flash 3-in-1 at many places.

    Yes but the Perfect bundle has GBA Cheats and GBA RTS where as M3i Zero + Ez 3in1 doesn't. The M3i has everything there but it's Homebrew is not the best, its good though. I find the Supercard to have better homebrew support and more stable RTS & Slow motion. It can also play the new Pokemon. Although I haven't personally tested this as I don't like Pokemon.

    I would recommend Supercard DSONEi.

    Not sure why anyone would recommend mix-match combo [​IMG] Without question, if one was to buy an M3Real/iZero and wanted a Slot-2 'companion', then the M3 GBA Expansion is the smart choice....more advantages over 3in1 - RTC feature, for one (Pokemon).

    I disagree on Supercard though = crap gui will never win me over.

    That doesn't do RTS, or Slow Motion.
