    Hello,

    I am from Portugal, and I found the GBAtemp looking for Acekard reviews.
    I own a psp [​IMG] , a Wii [​IMG] and recently a ds lite [​IMG] .


    Well, I'm off to read more topics.

    Like I said before I am looking for a DS card. After reading some reviews AceKard 2i seems nice. What is the best card for DS lite?

    I also tried to add the AceKard to cart in shoptemp, but it seems its out of stock. [​IMG]

    Yeah shoptemp had to close and isn't taking any orders, it's being remade soon.

    http://www.lightake.com/
    http://www.0shippingzone.com/
    Those are two sites gbatemp recommends, lightake in particular has a forum account here where they sometimes clear up confusions on products.

    As for picking out the best cart, here's my copy-paste.




    [​IMG]
    Note that the prices given are from chinese shops.
    If you order from a shop in another country it's more expensive.
    [*]The original R4.
    NOT "R4-III Upgrade", NOT "R4-SDHC", NOT "R4i NDSLL", NOT "R4 Red", NOT "R4 King"...
    NOT ANYTHING ELSE WITH "R4" IN THE NAME! JUST "R4 Revolution For DS".

    The cheap card for somebody that just wants to play games on a DS/Lite.

    [*]R4i Gold
    The cheap card for somebody that wants to play games on a DSi with more storage.

    [*]Acekard 2i
    Mid-range card for people that want to play games on a DSi/XL with some extra features.

    [*]EZ-Flash Vi
    Higher-end card with even more features.

    [*]Supercard DSTwo
    Pretty much the ultimate card right now.
    • DS / DS Lite
      The card will work on an original (fat) DS or a DS Lite.
    • DSi / DSi XL
      The card will work on a DSi or DSi XL as well.
    • Game Updates
      Firmware updates are what let cards play newer games, these are the life-blood of the card.
    • SDHC
      SDHC refers to SD cards larger than 2GB (gigabytes). If there's no SDHC support, you can only use SD cards up to 2GB.
    • WiFi Update
      The Acekard 2i can update it's cheats (and get minor bug fixes) over WiFi without having to connect to a computer.
    • Auto Ap Bypass
      Some carts have special features to ignore AP in most games, letting you play them without having to wait for a firmware update first. The Acekard only has partial support for this right now.
    • RTS
      The Real-Time Save (Save State) function lets you save and reload your game progress at any moment you wish.
    • In-Game Guide
      You can pull up text files and images in-game, in order to check a walkthrough or map you downloaded at any time during a game.
    • Slow Motion
      The card lets you slow down the game speed as you wish.
    • In-Game Cheats
      The card lets you create and modify cheats while the game is running.
    • Special Homebrew
      The card has multiple pieces of special homebrew, such as it's own GBA and SNES emulators, as well as text/PDF reader and video player.
    • Battery Life
      Unfortunately the DSTwo's extra CPU and RAM (which give it the special features) eat into the battery life a bit.

    Take a good look at Rydians copy paste chart, its a good reference to base your decision on.

    If you have a DS lite just get an Acekard 2i that way if you ever do get a DSi/DSiXL you can still use it. If you have a DSi I'd recommend getting a DStwo because of the extra added features it has.

    I can also recommend buying from lightake, I've bought numerous items from there and I have had no problems at all

    PM/IM me about it later today or whatever, I don't actually know Wiki syntax and don't have the time to mess with it right now.

    I got halfway through and said "fuck it". XD The purpose of that chart is different than the purpose of my copy-paste, so it's pretty hard to find a way to properly merge them. While I intended to add all the info, I'd need to split some of the categories up (got halfway through that) and realized it'd just to too big. It's a visual mess at it is, even on my widescreen 22-inch monitor.

    I might just re-do the thing later, but I'd be taking out a bunch of info that doesn't matter any more in order to make it less of a clusterfuck.
