    My guess would be that you would get a fake on that site [​IMG]

    Every current card with "R4" in the name is a clone/copy, the original creators of R4 dropped off the face of the planet a while ago.

    Get a better card that will actually get updates/support to play new games, like an Acekard (it's cheap) or CycleDS or something.

    Just, not an R4.

    Rydian...
    I laughed... Better just, Be knowing (if not say study, just saying that you would KNOW) before you post...

    You just literally said a guy who wants a flashcart for DSi XL to get CycloDS (AND YOU EVEN TYPO'D THE NAME)

    Just stressing that cycloDS is not DSi nor DSi XL compatible...

    You should maybe get M3i or Acekard 2i (IF you have older DS console to upgrade the acekard if needed) - I like acekard for it's load speed - it is best I have seen yet. Though, M3i has nice sakura what even I liked when I saw it. Also, M3i Zero is upgradeable.

    If you have the method of internet paying, I'd tell you to search out DealExtreme trick links, and ordering from there, it is cheap, it comes, they DEFINETELY ARE REAL (just as long as you are NOT ORDERING A R4 that is) - only thing is the speed, that varies, sometimes randomly it may take a while but mostly it is acceptable 2 weeks of total wait (total as in the processing and delivery)

    Hah, I did. XD Thanks for the correction.
    I keep forgetting that Cyclo doesn't work on the DSi, what with everybody that owns it acting like it's god.

    I own one...
    It plays games, but honestly same games work on my Acekard, plus My acekard is faster as I said.

    but... that's just me.

    I posted it in response to you, it wasn't directed at you, you're not a bad forum member. ^^

    Yeah the ones on that site are fake. I bought an R4 from there last week.

    hmph.. Does 1 year 1 month count as an acceptable wait?

    I'd highly recommend a M3i Zero Sakura, since that's what I'm aiming on buying. Plus the DSi XL's default firmware is v1.4...

    You should either get the Acekard 2i or the M3i Zero. You could get both from Gamekool.com
