    Wow... so popular their website was down. I saw that their hoster for www.teamcyclops.com was "chinamotif.com"... interesting. Perfect timing when I had a suggestion for the Cyclo menu...

    I really really hope that teamcyclop hasn't bailed out on the CycloDS Evo and now there will be no support... I have a CycloDS and I am a little worried about it now.

    The sky is falling!

    Seriously though, websites go down all the time. Team Cyclops is at the top of the heap right now, so unless they need to hide from alimony payments or something they would be foolish to cut and run at this point. Also, every time I've visited their site or forums I've been taken aback by how slow they were. It's hardly a surprise that the web server that they got in a box of Cracker Jacks finally crapped out on them.

    I tried to get on the site yesterday and it said that their account had gone over their bandwidth limit.

    Their website is down, that must mean they took all the money and moved to Mexico!
    Now we'll never get a non-beta In-Game Text viewer.

    I've never visited the Cyclo website before July since I never had a CycloDS... but I guess they just need to start getting more bandwidth with the money they earn...

    Its ususally fairly good. Their was that one time where we all thought it was a ddos attack for about a week and it sometimes goes down for like 2 days each month.

    It happens every two months or so becuase they don't have unlimited bandwith, meaning that man people use the site too much

    This happens regularly and people still freak out about it everytime.
    I think its kind of funny considering how often fanboys praise TC's site/forums/support.

    I bet he gets a long holiday with the prices he charges for his cart. I would even have thought he could pay for a decent domain too.

    Update the cart by putting the update file (update.evo IIRC) in the root of your memory card. Enable real time saves by holding select while you start a game. All features can be accessed from the settings menu (right button on the main screen) or the in-game menu (A+B+X+Y+L+R).

    The forum website is down too. Workede yesterday. Says "Account suspended". Glad I downloading all the firmware before it went down. Got my cyclods yesterday and love it.

    You can go here and get your latest firmware. No beta though.
