    i need a suggestion for a new flashcart
    i have had the r4 since they came out and am looking for something that is still supported and can run newer games and use 4 gig cards
    i also want something that can use the same saves that i have on my r4
    also is dealextreme a great place to buy form still?
    any recommendations would be great

    both seem like excellent choices
    do both support the same save files as the r4 also is the acekard on dealextreme the real one or a fake because it loks slightly different than the one from the review
    also which one has more frequent updates and a more supportive team behind it
    im just wondering about all this because i haven't been on this forum in a while and dont really know anything about the new flashcarts
    btw which one has better cheat support

    The Land down under.
    The R4 can support any game , you just need to use YSMenu and tweak the game a bit ;P

    Well if you want to spend a little extra money get the M3iZero, Its an amazing card with great compatibility, but it's only lacking area is its homebrew compatibility but that can be fixed by running dskiosk, plus its got Real Time Save and Real Time Guide which are amazingly useful. If you want to save a few bucks you can get the AK2i, but it doesn't have RTs and RTG as far as i know.

    The best place to get a M3i is DealExtreme.com, they have kinda slow shipping but have the best prices. The features M3i has are Real Time Save, where you can save anytime anywhere, and it also has Real Time Guide(RTG) that you can read a text file, usually a guide, while your playing a game.

    Well, I'm not sure about the AK2i but the M3i is IMHO the fastest GUI i have ever used before, and yes, they both work with all 3 of those games, and they both work with .sav files.

    I have several FC's and my favourite is the Cyclo. There are very few problems with it and most of the new games seem to work on the Cyclo before other FC's.

    Having said that, I would always suggest an AK2i to anyone looking for a new FC. I love the Cyclo and IMO it is the best FC but............. the AK2i is the best value FC in terms price/functionality. On top of that there always seems to be a good supply of them and you won't have to wait 3 months for anyone to get them in stock.
