    Ordered it last night. Ive been looking at skins and stuff since. Heres a few questions.

    1. How long would Dealwoot take to ship to Washington?
    2. How do I download skins onto my CycloDS?
    3. What games should I get first [​IMG]
    4. What is the point of updating?

    These are the games I want so far:
    Clubhouse Games, The World Ends With You, Elite Beat Agents, Zelda Phantom Hourglass, My Sims, Flash Focus Training.

    Stay and chat if you're waiting for yours to come too [​IMG]

    p.s. Can someone list the extra CycloDS features that ARE MOST USEFUL. I know that the review and some other posts list these, but I just want to know the ones that people use the most, and without techinical hard-to-understand terms. Thanks.

    p.p.s Thanks to Demon's post I know some of the extra coolio features I get with my new CycloDS. can someone also include how to set them up? (real-time guide/save, e-books, HOW TO UPDATE etc.) Again it was covered in the review, but with alot of techinical terms. Thanks Again

    1. Washington state? Probably 3 days, since it's on the west coast.
    2. Download and extract the skin, put it in the MicroSD folder CycloDS/skin. Make sure the skins are made for CycloDS. R4 skins will not work.
    3. You have a flash card, you can download any game you want. Take your time.

    Features:

    Real-time save (Let's you save the game anywhere, anytime)
    Real-time guide (Let's you view a text FAQ or walkthrough during gameplay) BETA only.
    Slow-motion (some people find this useful for certain rhythm games)

    Are you using WinRAR to extract the skin?

    Btw, do you mean how long it took from when you ordered it, or when they shipped it?

    hey everyone, I just ordered mine today!
    Plus, im about 5 hours away from the company, so maybe it will come in a day or two? hopefully?

    Anyway, is this really the best flash card to date? or has someone else taken this title?

    That's a bit subjective. [​IMG]

    I also ordered my CycloDS yesterday, so I can't wait for it to get here! [​IMG] I already have all of my games / homebrew ready to transfer over.

    Got a 4GB MicroSD with it (from newegg), which I'm hoping comes either same day, or before the cyclo does...

    That's what IM afraid of. :-\

    I've been watching their statuses like a hawk though. My MicroSD left Carson at 6am, and my Cyclo left City of Industry at 10pm, so I think as long as DHL doesn't just let my package sit there, that I should get it the same day.

    If I do get my Cyclo early, I'll just play the waiting game until my MicroSD arrives [​IMG] I already created a folder with all of my backup games, firmware and homebrew apps so that as soon as I get my MicroSD, I copy over the folder, and everything should update and I should be all set to go.
