    about bloody time? That sounds as if you have a right to demand that. Look at the feature list - that is what you paid for. Be grateful that you get more than just compatibility fixes.

    Actually I bought the CycloDS upon the fact that the dev team said In-Game Text Reader would be implemented. On top of the fact that this feature has been delayed quite a bit.

    Edit: On top of the fact that the CycloDS is one of the priciest carts, and yet lacks this feature which the SCDS1 has had for some time, not to mention the fact that the SCDS1 is cheaper than the Cyclo.

    So why did you not buy a Supercard then? THEY advertise that feature.

    Simply because the CycloDS Dev team speak English and seem on the whole much more professional than the supercard team. That's what it came down to, nothing else.

    Don't get me wrong, I think the Cyclo team are excellent in comparison to the teams of other Flash Cards, I just think that they have taken their sweet time with this feature.

    CycloDS only about $35 now. Not very pricey.

    I'm obviously referring to the time when I bought it, not its recent appearance on DX.

    Yeah I was hoping for some sort of seperate folder implementation, but at least its here [​IMG]. If your worried about having to scroll through many files to get to your roms setting the file attributes as "Hidden" (Right Click > Properties > Hidden Checkbox in Windows) will hide them in the CycloDS Menu but still allow them to be used.

    I don't really see the problem with it being in the same folder as long as the feature works..

    and what was documentedly available for the device at the time of purchase (REviews are a valid source, PREviews are not). The feature request forum contains no official sales document, but merely development discussion and, as the name suggests, requests.

    he bought the cyclods on the notion that in-game text reader will be implemented in a future update. i'm sure the OP looked at forums and saw that in-game text reader was being worked on. You consider forums to not be official sales documents and to a certain extent that is true. However to a certain extent it is true because alot of people purchase cyclods and pay the premium because they see how active the forum is and how awesome TC is. They DON'T buy the cyclods based SOLELY on its features list.

    Consumers purchase the cyclods because of its awesome support and constant feature additions.

    which does not render it a contractual obligation. But this argument leads nowhere, so I take the personal viewpoint joker. I believe you can enjoy the extra features, but must not demand them, you say they are expectable.

    if the cyclods creators (team cyclops) says that they will implement in-game text reader in the future... how is that NOT a contractual obligation?

    No, I can see why people would want a separate folder.
    The root of the microSD would get very cluttered if people added a lot of text files for each game, and that can cause problems.

    I'd quite like it if you could put text into x:\Cyclo\text actually, with the same Mario.txt to Mario.nds thing.
    But then the problem is if you have two Mario.nds files somewhere on your cyclo.

    But isn't that why we have folders? To organize? Thats why I have a folder called games, homebrew, music, and videos so it'd be easier to find everything. So can't people just make a folder for the game?

    They seem to be blaming hardware limitations, then how do other cards have this feature?
