Really hoping someone can help me out with this: So my DS Lite broke a few months ago and I finally got a new one and now I want to start getting up to date with flash cart stuff. But there are just so many loaders, firmware, software, etc. I have NO idea what's what and there seems to be 10 of everything now and I have zero idea what works best (or at all). Basically I have an M3 DS Real and all I want to do with it is play NDS games. I don't need it for music, movies or text, just games. Maaaaybe the occasional GBA game but really, mostly NDS. Can anyone point me in the right direction, software wise? Do I need this sakura thing? Or Kaura? Or something else? I don't need any sort of fancy interface, just whatever will get me access to the games the quickest and whatever's stable and works. Also I've been out of the scene for a while now so I'm not sure if the problem I was having a while back has been solved: last time I was looking into this stuff, I was getting a lot of games that simply wouldn't load on the DS Real, everything from Avatar to Assassin's Creed 2 to Iron Man. I was thinking it had something to do with features for the DSi that I couldn't access, but that was just a theory. It could also have been some kind of new encryption that I wasn't aware of, but again, that's also a theory. Does anyone know if this issue has been resolved yet? Is there some kind of workaround for it? Or are some games just never going to run? Or some other thing that hadn't occurred to me? Rest assured that any info that anyone can provide on this stuff would be greatly, greatly appreciated. I tried to search for the answers on the site but for for the life of me, I couldn't find the info. I'm really confused at this point and I'd be grateful to anyone who can even just point me in the right direction, so I know where to begin. Thanks very much for your time and for reading this post.
