    So what should I get, cus I can sell the R4 on e-bay for 80 easy to some idiot, seen it done plenty of times now.

    I like cheats, lameboy, and all that stuff...

    The card will be in my DS except for when I am changing stuff on the microSD card. (Kingston 2GB)

    I heard you can play GBA games on the CycloDS with no slow 1 card? [​IMG]

    Wat shud I gat? [​IMG]

    That ^

    I was confused about that too. If you can sell R4s on eBay for $80 to idiots I would be rich by now.

    You can still sell'em at high prices at Craiglist. That's how it is in Vancouver.

    Cyclo is simply better than the Acekard 2.

    Also, no, you still require a Slot-2 card to play GBA games.

    I sold mine on craigslist for $80 [​IMG]

    I don't think Cyclo can play without a slot-2. I think you have to at least have a EZFlash 3-in-1, but you can load it directly from the Cyclo.

    The CycloDS would be the better choice if you feel that the extra features are worth the extra cost. Most people won't use game state dumps or slow-motion, so those sorts of features aren't necessarily worth the extra money. The Acekard 2 also has a better menu than the CycloDS.

    This is a matter of opinion - I for one think that the CycloDS menu is more user friendly (better for newbies) and more responsive. Also, there are other features of the CycloDS that Acekard 2 doesn't have which would be useful to most people, unlike stuff like slow motion. These include homebrew soft reset and ingame LCD brightness adjustment. Finally, I don't think that RTS should be dismissed as something that most people would not use - its very useful and if you check the official TC forums you'll see its a frequently used feature.

    Yes, of course it's a matter of opinion as was the rest of my post (and yours).

    I personally don't find the additional features of the CycloDS to be worth the extra cost. As I said, the CycloDS would be the better choice if you feel that the extra features are worth the extra cost.

    That's a terrible reason.

    Cyclo isn't just about features. It's about the first-class support team. The support team alone is worth the money, imo.

    Acekard 2, on the other hand, is getting everything off of its older brother, the RPG. Even so, without anything that really stands out than the GUI, it certainly isn't better than the Cyclo.

    There is a button called "post to classifieds" on the site. Use it.

    Agree on that bit on the CycloDS. Any features that you will use is worth the cost. Any features that you dun use is a waste of money. Then of course, there will always be people who will buy the best just because they can afford it.

    lots of people are selling R4s there now . Best to do is put up some pictures . More attractive . And make it sound fantastic . Just don't say it can play roms xD nothing like that !


    AK2 or CycloDS


    CycloDS if you got the money .

    But if ur low in budget and want something ASAP !

    then AK2 is your choice !
