    Does anyone know the difference besides the 3ds feature? For example does it run snes games at a better fps?

    snes games can run at a very steady rate if using a N3DS because of the new processor speeds.

    DSTwo Plus is just a DSTwo with a Gateway clone inside it.

    That's not DSTwo though. DSTwo runs in DS mode.

    I was taking about the DSTwo Plus anyway lol.

    So the DSTwo Plus runs in 3DS mode, then?

    DSTwo Plus runs in DS mode, except when it boots the Gateway stuff. However that works.

    Thanks for the info. I've never used a DSTwo, so I wouldn't know much. :P

    So they are literally identical except for the fact that the plus runs the gateway stuff...

    Do not get the DSTWO Plus, it will brick your console.

    If you want 3DS Gateway functionality, seriously, just get a genuine Gateway, it will save you heaps of trouble

    Why does it brick your 3DS?

    There have been 4 unconfirmed reports of the SCDS2+ bricking their console. I have been testing this morning with my N3DS and SCDS2+ with the latest GW firmware and SCDS2 plugins. I haven't bricked yet.

    As far as the SCDS2 vs SCDS2+, the + has a faster processor built in and more RAM. With those I assume emulation would be better.

    So how much better is emulation on a DT+?

    I would ask you the same question.
    It is plausible though. However, how many bricks did anyone else get with the last round of bricks?

    You won't get your 3DS bricked if you just use your DSTwo+ in DS mode.

    It isn't any better. It's the same as the old DSTwo. You can still only set the processor speed in the emus to a maximum of 396mhz, which isn't good enough to run Snes and GBA at full speed without frameskip. If the cpu is truly faster on the DSTwo+ in DS mode, the emus would need to be edited and recompiled to allow for a faster processor speed than 396mhz.

    It is definately plausible. One of the reports comes from someone I trust, but it was his friend's. Not to talk bad about the other three, but they are all in the same region and have low post count. I don't think it has been fully proven, but on the other hand it hasn't been debunked either.

    I do. Why would I buy from a company with a bad reputation? I love my 3ds way too much.

    Brick code is in GW 3.5 or higher version. If you stick with GW 3.4.1 you are fine without brick code.
