    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)

    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.
