    At risk of being called a fanboy, I think the CycloDS is better [​IMG]

    CycloDS is supported by the official team, and from what I gather, Acekard is fairly much rubbish unless you run AKAIO, which is an unofficial firmware. If AKAIO stops being developed, Acekard goes with it.

    Did you have to ask the same question in 3 different threads?

    To answer you question, the Acekard 2 is way better. It cured my aunt's cancer and stopped my parents getting divorced.

    Did it foil the plans of the DS-Xtreme? It wanted you all to itself...

    I have both cards. If you really want the RTS (real time save) feature, then go with the CycloDS. If you don't care about
    RTS or want to save some money, go with AceKard.

    Both cards are pretty well supported.

    I've heard the Acekard is good. In quality though, CycloDS. Seeing that the Acekard is decent, I'd go with the Acekard, simply because of the price tag.

    The CycloDS is actually becoming like a second class card where as the acekard keeps on getting better this is because:
    They arent updatin firmware like they used to(Theres still no official COP fix)
    They have a boring GUI
    Its been one year since they showed us a DSi workin Cyclo vid bit they havent comeup with anything for one year

    Face it the Cyclo was good but now with the next generation of consoles and flashcarts its slowy making a move outta the whole DS scene

    Cyclo used to have some features no other cards had. Now it doesn't, almost all competitor cards have the same features. And although support used to be good, it has gotten quite lazy lately. It's also never come down in price, and doesn't even support DSi. You can either spend $50 on a card with little benefit and waning support, or $13 on a card with the best support. I think we all know what is a better value and card.

    AK2 > CycloDS.

    BTW, I am not a fanboy of either, I have neither. So there's no bias from me. I just state the facts of the matter.
