    From what I hear, it takes about 3 days or less to ship to the west coast.

    Setting up the CycloDS is pretty easy. It comes with an internal firmware, so all you have to do is put in the microSD, and then it'll create the system files.

    To update the CycloDS after that, just put the update files in the root directory of your microSD. It'll update the next time you go to the Cyclo menu.

    The CycloDS review has a lot of stuff about setting things up and whatnot. [​IMG]

    (I don't have a CycloDS so if I'm wrong, please correct me.)

    It's RTS and it stands for Real-Time Save.

    Basically, it lets you save anytime, anywhere. Even during a boss battle you normally couldn't save at.

    And you mentioned Real-time guide before. To use it, you need the 1.5 Beta firmware. Put a .txt file with the exact name of them ROM it's for in the root folder of your MicroSD. Then, activate in-game menu and you can select to view the text file.

    You'll probably get your CycloDS by the end of the week. [​IMG]

    Probably 1-2 days since you're in California.

    If you ordered yesterday, then it most likely got shipped today. Since they usually ship the day after you placed your order.

    Wouldn't be surprised if you found it in your mailbox tomorrow. =)
