    Hello,

    time ago i asked about the best cards for the ds/3ds and wonder if the DSTWO is still the best choice around.

    In advance thanks!

    Edit:
    A store you people recommend to buy the card?

    IMO yes, it is still the best option.

    I find it to be the best, as it can work with the latest firmware, and the supercard team always get updates out quickly when new firmware is released. That, coupled with the extra emulation features from the onboard CPU make it the clear winner in my eyes.

    Very very glad I own one!

    For DS Mode, the DStwo is by and large the best actively supported card.

    I initially held out hope to see more done with the iEvo since it was able to successfully boot into DSi mode, which would have allowed some extra potential horsepower and resources... However, since Team Cyclo effectively abandoned it, the DStwo is still the primary and now... only real choice. It has by far some of the best homebrew, and even though it's DS mode only, runs any games you could possibly want. With its extra hardware, it could actually run GBA games on any newer DS's without the slot, do some near-perfect SNES emulation (or as perfect as it'll get until the Gateway and stuff start allowing homebrew), and even the homebrew compiled to be aware of and use the extra silicon seems to gain a performance boost, most notably in DS2x86.

    Hi. i'm thinking of buying a DSTWO, but I've looked on the official website and realized that the last EOS update was over a year ago and this makes me doubt a bit. ¿Should I buy it anyway? ¿Is it compatible with the lastest roms?

    all of the updates regarding game fixes have halted, but the updates for suport on 3ds is constant.
    So it is safe to assume that it is compatible with the latest roms.
    Even the r4 clones didn't have any extra update on that regard so, yes should buy it (if that is what you want)

    Well it's not the best DS mode cart in terms of battery consumption.

    This is the only con that DS Two has, and it eat up your battery even if you just plug it into the cartridge slot and doesn't actually use it (3DS Sleep mode, playing internal 3DS/DSi games).

    Well, I said it because other cards have recent updates like the wood kernel or retrogamefan updates

    So i get the DSTWO finally, and surprise, two of my roms don´t work: "Kirby Mass Attack (E)" and "Pokemon Conquest (E)". This two roms work perfectly on a cheap R4 clone.

    This disappoints me a little, I don´t think Dstwo is still the best card right now for DS games.

    Otherwise, the emulators work very well.

    It seems that they didn't patch the European versions of these ROMs. You can try asking at http://forum.supercard.sc/thread-7517-1-1.html
    However the USA version of these ROMs works at latest EOS.

    Sure, I can patch it. But this shows that the official team has neglected the support, they open a "Dstwo game bug reporting" topic but then they just ignored it, the last EOS upate was in 2012.
