    Sorry if this was already posted, but i didn't saw anything like that [​IMG] ;

    Well, i've visited these stores:

    http://www.newegg.com/
    http://dealextreme.com/
    http://volumerate.com/
    http://www.gameyeeeah.com/
    http://ishopvideogame.com/
    http://www.kickgaming.com/
    http://www.yallstore.com/

    none of them have a cyclods [​IMG] ;


    just this one, for $46.99
    http://www.dealwoot.com/

    if i could see "not avaliable" or "out of stock" i would understand, but i can't find any reference to it.
    I was in doubt between cyclods and m3real, but i've choosen with doubt, cyclods; but when i decide to buy it, where is it [​IMG] ?

    Cough. I seriously doubt NewEgg would have CycloDS in stock [​IMG]

    DealExtreme pulled them off long time ago, after a dispute on prices with Team Cyclops.

    About the other stores... Dunno [​IMG]

    Well, for starters, you prolly won't find ANY flash carts a newegg heh.

    Deal Extreme had them for a very short time but it was for a reduced rate, and apparently some drama has sprung up between Team Cyclops (the group that made the Cyclo) and DE.

    Here's your best bet:
    http://www.cyclopsds.com/cgi-bin/cyclods/e...page=wheretobuy

    Thats a list of their official retailers. Look through those. You'll find one [​IMG]

    (i'd give you the site i bought from - www.realhotstuff.com - but thats based out of the US and i think international shipping is through the roof, but check there too [​IMG])


    EDIT: Yea, Raulpica and myself seem to be on a similar wavelength for this lol. And it also looks like he confirmed my drama story between TC and DE [​IMG]

    Thanks... i'm a bit newbie about buying online... i'm about to get my international credit card, and wanna buy lots and lots of things [​IMG]
    that month is being a crap to me [​IMG] . i've lost my
    mp4 - R$100
    art case - R$120
    NEW Nintendo DS + R4 + MicroSD 2GB + Expansion pack 3 in 1 - R$680
    Broke my digital camera's LCD - R$200
    total: R$ 1100 ( about 650 US$ ) lost in a single month! i'll need to work more 4 months to get all these! [​IMG]

    and at university i am getting 0,1,2,3 of tests scores. [​IMG]

    Really, [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] i don't care very much of losing all these, if i could get back my MicroSD; i've spent more than 800 hours in it ( i have backup of just 300 hours)
    Microsd + expansion pack + r4 all are from my old DS that i have burst trying to recharge it with a cellphone batt while on; i've forgot to turn it off before doing this ( it always worked, but with ds off )[​IMG]

    yayme [​IMG] !

    PS: no problem at all, at least i'm alive! for the time being... [​IMG]

    :run_for_own_life:

    Seriously, i don't even care if i die XD [​IMG] i never cared. i just care about my beloved ones, friends, above myself. but losing U$$650 is a bit shocking [​IMG] but what i can do.. it is destiny, but was avoidable if i had more care about my things. next time i'll use a hook to hook all my things to where they must be..

    How does one lose so much shit in such a short period of time? Not taking care of your belongings?

    Heheheh. I do care for my belongings, but the problem is the load of shit that is happening with me.. too much work, too much university, too much problem at both and in house. and now these things. it bursts anyone's head [​IMG] [​IMG] ... anyway, lost is lost. i think that maybe I'll recover the ds. if not, patient. these are all material things. i still have all my friends and life.. these are all lessons to i pay attention to everything, and not just problems in work/university/home..

    i needed to put everything out, what i an feeling; sorry to do there..

    thanks for the reply..

    I agree on them being material things and there are much more impotent things.

    Back to the subject at hand, there are many other alternatives to the cyclo. Some might not be the same and have some of the same features but there are some pretty decent alternatives at a cheaper price. May I ask why you are looking for just a cyclo?

    Ah, thanks again for the reply [​IMG]

    so... i had an R4, and liked it, but i was looking something similar to R4, but with SDHC support, and i've heard that Cyclods is still being updated, and there are hardly fakes on it.. Do you have any other recommendations..?

    If I were to get a new cart today. I would either go for an Edge (Cyclo clone from what ive read). AceKard 2 (have not heard much about fakes being spread) Or TopToy DS (to many fakes from the sounds of it especially from dealextreme). All 3 of which can be bought at most places with dealextreme being the cheapest usually. All 3 of which have SDHC.

    Also the Acekard 2 has the best menu from the sounds of it.

    The 3 carts I listed have most of those features you want. Although some of those features no cart that I can think of on the top of my head have. Although some of it can be done with homebrew

    Thought if you plan to just get one I would lean towards Edge and Acekard.

    Well... and about M3Real, what you think about it?
    He is on my list of alternatives to Cyclods.

    Thanks again!

    Well if you find RTS (Real time save) It is a pretty good card I would suppose.

    Here is the GBAtemp review: http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=68277

    Although it does not have reviewing of new features such as RTS (As that was added in the last few monthz.)

    Okay....

    Well... just a couple of questions:

    -Does CycloDs have good cheat support? (have action replay chear too)
    -Why not choose Cyclods?

    On my list of getting a new cart:

    Edge
    M3Real
    CycloDs
    Edge

    btw.... sorry for running from the topic a bit, but... you or anyone have any idea where to get a trustworthy new DSL ?

    Thanks again ! ( LOL I think that i say too much "Thanks and sorry" [​IMG] ... that i get being annoying XD Sorry! (again!?) But it is on my "Blood", To be Thankful and To say Sorry if I'm being wrong [​IMG] )

    Well cyclo is fine, but as you noted in your first post not many places sell them. From what I seen the only cart that had that had trouble with cheats was the R4 (not sure about its clones) with the cheat database being to big and unable to read everything (Could easly be fixed by removing all the cheats for games you did not need) (Also I could be wrong with this, I try to keep somewhat up to date with all the goingz on but with Real life and everything else it can be a hassle). All 3 are very fine cards. Edge being easyer to find and cheaper then the Cyclo, missing a few features (Like I do not think the EDge has RTS yet???)

    I am not sure how each one is with Wii connectivity (not sure if that is something you want or need but I figured I'd make it known) but I know the Cyclo is fine with it just not sure with the other 2.



    Also local shop would be best bet for getting a DSL.


    Ok well I am going to head to bed soon. Good luck with everything.

    humm... thank you very much.

    So... i think that i'll get a CycloDs then...

    About the Ds.... because of the US$, it costs + - R$500,00 (Approx 250US$), so i have no idea about that...

    thanks again!

    Using PM's will satisfy too..... [​IMG]

    @Raupi... You're just irresponsible. I wouldn't buy a CycloDS since it has the highest price
    of all them Carts on the market. Then again you might become one of their favored customers
    if you keep buying them after a losing streak...

    If you're looking at alternatives, Acekard2 and M3Real would be where to go as Banger suggested.
    Just buy one and see what you think since you have so much money and then ask questions when you
    get hands on experience. bai bai~
