    We are reviewing the DS-Xtreme!

    Review should be available today!







    We are happy to announce that we have received our DS-Xtreme 4 Gbit (512 megabyte) unit today! We are currently in the process of writing the review of it. The review should be available later today.

    So far, we can tell you that we are extremely impressed! At the moment all we've tried works flawlessly, all the features announced work and there's even more to discover (extended skinning capabilities, superfast transfer speed, single card multiplayer working great to any DS...) !
    Feel free to ask any question in this topic and make sure you read our review this evening!


    Edit: the DS-X team have allowed us to host a skin file for you to toy with it and look at the possibilities of the skinning system. You can download the skin file here.


    Edit 2: look at the pic below!

    Doing this was as easy as opening the notepad and typing some text! Also take a look at that video, made by a member of the DS-X team using the DS-X skinning engine!

    And image with gbatemp.net written on a piece of paper next to the product packaging, that must prove it because nobody can fake images. : D (Just playin')

    Anyways while I'm not that likely to purchase this cart at any time in the future I still wouldn't mind at least reading the review so I'll be sure to do that later today.

    Is it truly 4 GB of space on that cart or is it like the EZFlash carts where 1GB = something smaller?

    It's 4Gb (Gigabit). That's 512MB (Megabytes).

    And anybody that feels they need more than that are tools as far as I care. 512MB is enough to hold 8+ games in most cases still.

    Yeah sorry about that, I'll make it clear in the first post.
    It's definitely 512 Megabytes.

    Sorry that I missed that..... [​IMG]

    The 4GB = 512MB doesn't make sense to me...especially reading a page like this: File Sizes Explained [​IMG]

    Can we use the ds-X also like a passkey to acces NDS roms on a GBAflash card in the slot 2 ?

    That's cause 4GB (GigaBYTEs) isn't 512MB (MegaBYTES). 4Gb (GigaBITs), however, equals 512 MB (MegaBYTEs).

    I hope this cart has no slowdowns or longer loading times at all. Something like loading areas in Mario & Luigi. I know you all will test just the usual games like Castlevania, Metroid etc. but Mario & Luigi will be my personal speed test. [​IMG]

    Games boot up instantly and there is absolutely no slowdown even in the Castlevania intro movie!
    We have just tested it and it worked great. So did Ultimate Spiderman, Pokémon Dash...

    What about talkie-games in ScummVM DS, do they work?

    And where is the best place to buy one?

    Costello it's really nice that you're providing these "on the fly" information updates.
    That said if it is detracting from your reviewing speed, STFU and get the pen to tha MF paper!!! [​IMG]

    ...um [​IMG] ...sorry about that.

    I don't know why I'm getting so worked up over this cart.

    Oh, yes I do [​IMG] it's all these amazing things you keep going on about it doing!

    I think I'll have a little lie down now...
