    So I just got myself a new 1GB MicroSD, but I can't choose which games to put in it. Any recommendations? Also, it'd be nice if you gave a full list, uncompressed ( I don't like trimming my roms).

    What do you mean by this? ROMS requests are very much frowned upon here.

    That doesn't look like a rom request to me.

    He's asking for a list of good games whose sizes will fit on a 1 GB card. Not for the roms themselves.

    And I suppose that's also why he couldn't use the sticky, since it doesn't take size into account. Although there have been a few threads of "good games with a small file size" in the past...

    PW 1,2, & 3
    Apollo Justice
    TWEWY
    FFTA2

    That all should fit I believe

    Firstly, Why would you purchase a 1 gig card when you could get a 2 gig card for not much more £££$$$ ? and if your DS card has SDHC then why not 4/6/8 gigs?

    Anyway i am over 30 so my choice of games may change from others and i would choose:

    Zelda PHG (Number 1456) 128mbs
    Arkanoid (Number 2409) ??? 32/64mbs
    Diner Dash (Number 1042) 32mbs
    Mario cart (Number 0201) 32mbs
    Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword (Number 2387) 128mbs
    New International Track & Field (Number 2350) 128mbs ?

    Not quite 1 gig but its a start!

    Why by the way when someone requests something without first checking in " search " if its already been asked do you guys always moan at them about it?.
    Ok i guess it can get annoying seeing all the same questions appear but if you have already answered before or don' want to again then just leave the thread alone and let someone else sort it or simply link them to the old thread.

    This is basically the same as a "what are your fav games" list request.

    I suggest just looking at those threads with the idea of fill the card till full with items on the lists.

    Just make sure to leave some space for the saves (.5MB for each game on the card bare minimum).

    something your all forgetting is each game and some homebrew needs a save game most save games are around 512kb x this by about 30 items = 15mb remember to save about 25-30mb spare for save games or you will find some stuff wont even load due to lack of space [​IMG]

    and NEO DS roms can take upto 50-100mb each average for good games add to this DPG movies mp3s and homebrew. other emulators and their roms soon eats into 1gb [​IMG]

    you CAN however save a few mb here and there by trimming commercial game roms but sometimes this can break download play despite a lot of so called wonder rom trimmers state that they keep it .. experience in reality its hit and miss [​IMG]

    if download plays not a biggie then you can shave upto 30 or 40mb maby more off a rom here and there and grab back some precious space [​IMG]

    to be honest 2gb cards are not a great deal of difference in price to 1gb cards lately ... shop around there are some bargains to be had ... even with brand name mem cards [​IMG]

    kobykaan, this guy is only interested in ROMS, not homebrew and music and videos.

    anyways, why not trim your ROMS? (it's not compressing)
    you can save a bit of space and it doesn't affect anything, there's no reason not to. If you use NDStokyoTrim your ROMS won't lose any WiFi data or anything.

    NDSTokyoTrim is is here -> http://techsuki.net/nintendo-ds-rom-trimmer/

    The Downloads are right below the first screenshot.

    My game list:[*]Kirby - Canvas Curse: 50.56MB[*]Mario Kart DS: 24.38MB[*]New Super Mario Brothers: 19.66MB[*]Nintendo DS Browser: 5.92MB[*]Super Collapse! 3: 7.91MB[*]Tetris DS: 13.22MB[*]TLoZ - Phantom Hourglass: 62.31MB[*]Trauma Center - UTK 2: 54.55MB[*]WarioWare - Touched!: 30.94MB[*]Mario Party DS: 22.2MB[*]Club House Games: 10MB[*]Trauma Center - UTK: 13.6MB[*]Brain Age 2: 25.2MB[*]Castlevania - PoR: 44.9MB[*]Guitar Hero On Tour:114MB~600MB total
    I've recently deleted a few large games, FF12 RW and Araknoid DS and a few others. which would be ~200MB
    Then theres the 512KB savs
    14MB in total, including games that were deleted
