    Instant Save = Real Time Save?

    "instant walkthrough"

    This sounds like a good feature... going to put this on my card tonight and try it out.

    It's the in game guide. [​IMG]
    Just put your guide in txt format into RTSSAVE directory with the same name than your game.

    Pretty cool feature too.

    Wow, I hadn't expected this! I always thought that the M3 Team would be really fast with adding RTS and that the EZ-Flash Team would... well, never add it [​IMG] It seems like I was wrong! I always thought the EZ5 was a bad product... For example, I didn't like the idea of a Hybrid tool for patching. Anyway, great job EZ-Flash! I might get one of these, I already have the 3in1.

    Oh wow, I'll admit I don't normally pay much attention to updates but the walkthrough thing sounds amazing. I think realtime save will make some games too easy, but it'll be dead useful as a suspend/resume funciton for those times when you just have to put the DS down. Awesome stuff.

    Boy, did someone light a fire under EZ Team's butts or what?

    Did they ever add auto-DLDI patching to their firmware for slot-1?

    Wow, congrats to the EZ Team for really stepping it up. I've always thought they were a really great team, always on top of updates. Think I'm going to pick me up an EZ5 now.

    Agreed.
    But the main part is in place and write process is very quick for a 5MB file.
    I was worried about that because under the modified ez5 moonshell, write a file takes years.
    As i can see the hybrid mode is better than the moonshell libfat now.
    I hope windirt will drop moonshell as main OS and let it available apart like other flashcart (except supercardDS one). [​IMG]

    Ah, OK, I didn't know that. So it isn't required for things like Soft Reset either?

    This release should be called Alpha, because the new features are practically useless.

    The speedy updates are probably because of the newly released product EZV+ and they dun want to have nobody buying it.
