    Most importantly is the fact that GBA games can be booted directly from the cyclods games menu w/o the need for GBAExploader. This feature is only supported for the ezflash 3-in-1.

    I give them a 4/5 as there hasn't been official updates in some time (not Beta releases, though they work fine). But, at least I don't see them releasing updates to just solve compatibility with some games :/

    Most mainstream games work without any compatibility patch. Note I said 'mainstream', not craptacular shovelware.

    RTS is pretty much perfect, only a few trouble games and full ez-flash support isn't in yet.

    Updates have been slooow recently, I agree.

    The slow updates is because they had to stop work on them for a few weeks.

    it also already has 99% of all the requested features, so it's not like there's a huge amount of stuff they can add

    When I bought my flashcart, the main thing was 100% compatibility for games. And I got that. That was the main thing for me, so I gave the updates a 5.

    I don't have a Slot-2 device yet and plan to buy one soon. Who knows I might change my mind but I've been very happy with my CycloDS. It's much more plesant experience than my FireCard which who hate me so much that it died.

    However, one thing I would love for CycloDS to add - a feature that would delete files on the DS instead of having go on the PC and insert the microSD to delete files. Very useful when you are sorting your ROMs out into folders and find copies.

    I'm giving it a 4 out of 5, great card but since I have batch 1 the build quality doesn't seem to be top-notch, though it certainly doesn't look like it's falling apart.

    Be able to do the laundry and wash the dishes, oh and maybe vacuum the house and water the plants.

    I give them a 5/5 for updates, because they've seemed to stop updating for a while now. But maybe there's just been no need to release an update [​IMG] because they are frequent and load it with lots of more features and fixes to make it even more stable [​IMG]

    I use DSOrganize for this, plus it can hide folders as well. You can also set it as the multimedia program instead of Moonshell.

    I gave the updates a 5, because as compared to my experiences with the other slot-1 cart that I own (supercard), the Evo has MUCH better auto-ROM support (v. guess the settings for the SCDS1 or use clean mode and lose ALL of the card features), AND have actually added quite a number of new features as well, e.g. soft-reset from homebrew, and GUI 3in1 integration.

    Yes, I use the beta firmwares which ARE available to EVERY Evo owner unlike other mfgs if they even have betas.

    So teamcyclops gets a 5 from, SC would get a 3.5-4, and from what I've seen in the news about other cart updates I'd mostly give them a 1-2 as they seem to primarily only be compatibility updates. I'm not including the AK cards as the best updates are 3rd party, and I'm also not considering other 3rd party loaders OR running 3rd party shells on the SCDS1.

    Do I know you?

    I'd say 5, not for the frequency, but for how many features are generally added in each release.
