    Well I currently have a Supercard Lite and a Superkey, it works okay with NDS Games and Moonshell, but I'm wondering if it's worth switching from the 2-slot to the 1-slot. It's possible to use the DS browser with both the Supercard and R4, right? And if I were to switch to this solution, what process would I need to go through to switch my SC games to make it an R4 game?

    Thanks in advance.

    Wow. I was in the exact same position as you a few weeks ago. I decide to upgrade because I needed more space for multimedia, so I order a M3 Real.

    If you want to play your supercard saves on the R4, convert them here:

    R4s run clean ROMS, so just copy the clean ROM and the converted .sav file to the R4 to begin playing where you left off.

    Remember to backup your saves.

    I say go for it. Patching games for SCL is tedious and the R4 menu is easily skinnable. Well, those were my reasons for switching anyway [​IMG]

    Are there any other pluses I should know about?

    And I'm wondering if I should upgrade to a MicroSD bigger than my 1GB when I would mostly use it for game and some music.

    I choose NinjaPass X9 since it was cheaper.

    Hmm...to me I wouldn't do it.

    I currently uses Slot 2 solution (EZ-Flash 4) as well, and I thought about getting an R4 many times before but resisted. After all, my EZ-Flash 4 is still serving me well, playing every NDS games I want to play such as Cooking Mama 2 and Contra 4.

    I wouldn't buy an R4 now. A new version is coming out soon (they say) and also the last firmware hasn't delivered what they have promised...

    Also the R4 menu seems too basic to me.

    I would better go for a CycloDS Evolution or a SuperCard DS One SDHC.

    I had a SCLite and upgraded the R4 because the SClite looked bad in my DS [​IMG]

    The R4 Team only came up after a lot of time with the fix for the ARM7 problem. My SuperCard miniSD worked flawlessy with everyone of them, and no fix needed.

    Only for this, I wouldn't buy an R4. What if more games come out with some kind of other problem? I have to wait 2 months before playing them without opening them out and exchanging files? It could even be a problem that can't be fixed with DSLazy.

    Better sticking with the "OLD" but trustworthy SuperCard Team, and getting a SuperCard DS One. I'm getting one soon, myself. Or a CycloDS? Hmm... I really want that Wii Connectivity [​IMG] But surely, not an R4.
