    Changes in this BETA include:

    * Gameboy Advance software can now be loaded directly from the CycloDS Evolution GUI. Games must be pre-patched using GBATA or similar software. Automatic patching will be added in the future.
    * Fixed some compatibility issues caused by homebrew soft reset
    * Added support for new 3in1 cards
    * Fixed bug preventing RTS from working on filenames containing unicode characters
    * Game compatibility fixes (2110, ingame menu + 2107)
    * Added option of booting from slot 2 in either NDS or GBA mode

    It's maybe a stupid question, but is it stable and safe? I mean, it's BETA, so nothings for sure, but how it will treat my microSD?

    For GBA games with GBATA patched, not 100% compatibility.
    I can't play some games like mahjong and mario advance...
    hope can get it fixed soon.

    Hey nub, did you miss the part of the Cyclo announcement that said DONT SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH MESSAGE BOARDS AS IT IS A BETA?

    Apparently not. Well, the bag's already open, so I'll just say I'm not having any problems with it, using my new 4 gig Transcend card. I have yet to test Pocket Physics...

    Yeah, definitely don't get your hopes up for the next beta. I've pretty much given up on this feature. It's been rumored for months that it has been near completion. But now TC says that "Unfortunately, the in-game text reader is still quite far from completion". So we'll see if it actually makes in time for 1.41 or not. [​IMG]

    i would absolutely love it if they had homebrew soft-reset for emulators... that would own so hard!

    The soft reset works for NeoDs. If you're playing a rom, hit the button to change roms/pause the game (same thing, i use it for both) then jam all 6 buttoms, and ka-plow! it resets back to the Cyclo OS [​IMG]

    I haven't tested it with any Nes or Snes emus yet though.

    What exactly is this? Does this need GBA flashcart?

    Ingame text reader?

    Sheesh, I've got lots to learn.
