    Some of the more clever among you were able to read between the lines: we were hoping that by being a little (overly) provocative -in a humorous way though- we would be able to get things done. Well it turns out that the Cyclops team has responded once again to our messages.

    Not only have they updated their homepage with an answer to our recent calls, but they have also released a new firmware for their CycloDS cart.
    Thank you for listening to us, Cyclops Team! This is a small victory for GBAtemp. Thanks to the popularity and the strength of this community we were able to get things to move. This is encouraging for the future, let's hope other teams give a damnlistening ear just like the Cyclops Team did!

    PS: they still haven't donated to the Homebrew Bounty, even though we believe the DSi bounty will contribute (in a limited extent) to starting the DSi homebrew scene. But let's consider ourselves happy with that new update already.

    So it's an old-style firmware update? Pass.
    Beta style or nothing.

    A new update great, now if only they updates the new g.u.i as well. but I guess an update is an update and its better then no update.

    Away from you.
    Costy, at least you tried to get them to lower their price.

    Tis the thought that counts.

    I wonder what will happen if their iEvo will flop. Will they show up at Costello's Mansion and shoot the place up?

    you didn't think we were gonna change a company's business model in a single news thread? [​IMG]
    no, more seriously, there were a lot of complaints lately about the lack of updates, non existent rom compatibility support and all (check the cyclods forums and the posts asking for Golden sun support on the cycloDS).
    the team didnt seem to care, so we had to send a strong message.
    I think we've been heard now. It's good [​IMG] This should improve their image/reputation

    That's true. It always brings a tear to my eye to see a flashcart team listen to their customers in this day and age.

    CycloDS is lazy, but not stupid. I don't think that they produced more than ~5'000 cartridges with the first batch.

    The scene became very small lately.

    I would love it if their cards became cheaper :/ I mean shit, every other card is cheaper, and some of the older cards went down in price like the Acekard...

    But as long as it's above $35 [because I feel no card is worth that much because I just want to play games and not have all the features], they're not getting a cent from me.

    costello seems to be going all jumpy on them... how long has it been since the last firmware?
    every team becomes lethargic when the incentive is not there... increase the price?

    So, this means that the Edge is still gonna be updated. Right?

    Edit: Btw. TC's forums are back up. just with a message saying its down for maintenance. Atleast its not that chinese message that i wasnt able to read at all.
