. Idk what the difference between them. I'm also thinking if I should get R4 or M3 Real. I know most will say R4 because it's popular. But what I want to know is the difference and what one has and what the other doesn't.

Also a question. Do R4/M3 Simply and M3 Real rumble?
If it does rumble, what Slot-2 rumble is recommended?

And can you skin it with the skins of the R4/M3 Simply?

Get the M3 Real.

M3 Real is not similar to R4/Simply. Different GUI, completely different extra features. Different Loader altogether.

Any Slot-1 Flash Cart can rumble. It's whether you buy a Slot-2 that can rumble that's the problem. (M3 Real Perfect Packages comes with a Rumble)

Right now, it's extremely hard to find an R4 (most of them are pretty low qual these days too) and are extremely overpriced for what they can do.

I'd say the M3 Real is the way to go in a comparison between the 2.

The R4 is a great cart for compatibility and support, but it doesn't support SDHC cards or some of the features that newer carts have. It's kind of a dinosaur now. One of the "top of the food-chain" dinosaurs that brought slot1 cards to the forefront of many people's minds, but a dinosaur none-the-less.

I really don't know much about the M3 Real, but since it's newer, it's likely much more feature-rich than an R4.

If you want MY opinion, I'd say the card to get right now would be the CycloDS....but then, I don't really know anything about that one either.....but I hear it's really good.

EDIT: Oh, and no, the R4/M3S skins are not compatible with the M3 Real, unfortunately.

M3 Real. Just cuz. The one complaint is that there is no SDHC with the R4 although you can buy a non-SDHC 4 GB, but they're kinda slow and not very stable. SO go for the M3 Real or Top Toy or Cyclo if you want more room. And Cyclo has Wii to DS connectivity.

Damn. I'm thinking of getting an M3 Real.... But Idk where to get GUI/Skins if there are any... If you cant change the skin, ill just get M3 Simply. M3 Simply rather than R4 because I heard they are the same so I should just get the 1 with the kooler case

Unless like theres this feature the R4 has that the M3 Simply doesnt

Some of you have your priorities backwards. You would prefer one cart over another just because you can find skins for it?

LOL yep
biggrin.gif
just to make sure, the GUI is like the BG/Interface/Skin right?


Yeah, and the R4 can hold 12 at once, and the M3Real can only hold one? Or four? Can't remember.

Edit:
Btw so does this mean if I get an M3 Simply,I can get homebrews for R4 and go in the r4 forums for my M3S?

Yup. Any homebrew works on any card. Unless otherwise stated, like those that need extra RAM.


Wow thank you so much. TO put moonshell is just drag and drop and replace right. I heard though overwriting isnt good. so u need to delete the old files and put the moonshell stuff in it

I've seen problems with the Real and the soft reset option. One popular game that has this problem is Zelda. Plus, I think the GUI is ugly and not user friendly.

The only question I ask people is this: are you going to use a 4gig card? If no then get the R4. Nearly every store still has the R4 and for price, just look around.

Hell, a friend just got a Simply from a place called Echo Store or such just last week.

I think it's a bit pricey in that store. The one with the cheapest R4 for me is Gameyeeeah.com



Btw from what I've read, the M3 Simply has stronger WIFI and the R4 can have more GUI's

But dinosaurs are cool

Anyway I love my R4 it does everything I could want it plays every rom I've tried perfectly and it plays every homebrew I've tried perfectly

m3 simply and r4 basically the same but if u compare r4 with m3 real it totally different... r4 is better choice for casual gaming. i think all roms working fine. we should reconsider future development. m3 real will get loader upgrade once in a while but how about m3 simply/r4?. plus r4 will not work with sdhc micro card so buying m3 real is an advantage here...

i owned both r4 and m3 real but i still using r4
