    So I checked out EX4i and it lags ALOT on some games, and I simply thought it'd be best to ask you guys. Also, preferably one I can buy on shoptemp.

    Supercard DSTWO, hands down. It actually updates, unlike the iPlayer and EX4i emulator. Also, the EX4i has absolutely no features on the GBA emulator.

    I agree with Chaz. The DSTWO is the way to go.

    Woah, the GUI looks sick. I guess that's PROBABLY what I'll be getting, unless other people say otherwise and I agree.

    I wouldn't buy the EX4i, I don't trust the team to support their cart.

    Take a look at http://www.r4li.com/r4_fakecard.html full of BS and buy the same people.

    Atleast Supercard support their cart, even if the software isn't yet 100%.

    Here's a more detailed look.
    I'm assuming you're choosing from the iPlayer, the DSTWO, and the EX4i.

    Features that the DSTWO has that is missing from the EX4i:
    -GBA speed settings (fastforward/rewind/frameskip, etc)
    -GBA savestates
    -GBA cheats
    -DS Free Cheat
    -DS Real Time Save
    -DS Real Time Guide
    -DS Slow Motion
    -In-menu file management (Copy, Paste, Delete)
    -Built-in AP detection
    -Possibly more

    Features that the DSTWO has that is missing from the iPlayer:
    -GBA Emulator updates
    -DS ROM loading (Commercial games)
    -All the stuff that relates to DS ROM loading (excluding homebrew support)
    -Possibly more

    Features that the DSTWO promised but doesn't have yet:
    -SNES Emulator
    -.jpg file support in real time guide
    -SDK (although this will be released after the SNES emulator is re-coded)
    (No, the SC team did not promise a movie player)

    They must have, surely, or the GBAtemp review wouldn't be waiting for the feature to be added.

    But yeah, if you want a GBA emulator on the DSi, Supercard DStwo is no doubt the best choice.
    iPlayer's GBA emu is outdated, and won't be updated like the DStwo's, on top of which the iPlayer only does so much in contrast.
    I don't think the EX4i offers a lot either, it offers no options in contrast to the DStwo, so...

    I have both (DSTWO and EX4).

    The best GBA emulator is the one from the DSTWO, it's smoother on the games I tried, and there is a significant delay between when you press something and when it does the action on the screen on the EX4 (I noticed this especially on Super Mario Advance 2)...

    Plus load time is much faster on DSTWO, on the EX4 for every games you want to play, you need to wait for the GBA emulator to be loaded, then for the game to be loaded (15 sec)...

    Go with the Supercard Two.
    It has a supported team and is far more reliable than the EX4i, which is just an R4 clone with a few extra features.

    Well, that's the only thing stating that they're making a movie player. If you look at the box, the main DSTWO page, or the original announcement, they don't mention anything about a movie player.

    Sorry for crushing your dreams, everyone. [​IMG]
