    Hi guys,

    There could be many explanations for not being able to access www.ndstt.com but I'd like to know if it's everybody's problem nowadays.

    As the site gone down, can you guys access it ?

    I just hope it's not the end of the TTDS support (considering they have TTDSi support there too). [​IMG]

    Noooooooo!!! I only just noticed, I wonder if
    it's a site update (if it is, it's taking a bit too long),
    server problems maybe or... the unthinkable [​IMG]
    Regards,
    Matt.

    I really don't see how taking their Site down would stand as an april fool..

    I just suspect they were maybe forced to take it down. I've seen the site down before but not for many days like ti's been now..

    Yeah, it was probably the clones+dealextreme that killed this great card [​IMG]

    To be fair, though, there has been at least one other time when the site went offline for several days.

    Well, even if it has gone down,
    it's got a massive user base and we've already
    began to fix bugs and incompatibility problems
    with the new infolib and savlib.dat files. Even if
    they fail, we can always to to YSMenu, DSision
    etc.

    Edit: Also, if DSTT has gotten MENUdo (Not saying they have), they could be updating the site etc...

    Tanas.. how is the card dead.. it's still working well as of today and they developed a DSTTi card which means they were into the next Gen cards. Yes the Site shutting down can mean they're dying now but it wasn't dead before that event.

    I'm still crossing my fingers on this one.

    It's been offline for several days many times. No need for anyone to panic.

    I've been checking the site since mid last month. Its actually been off for like 2 weeks now and not a few days. I'm thinking that they are dead.

    Every time it goes down people say that they are dead. I doubt that they are dead.

    If you're concerned, get an Acekard 2. The Acekard 2 is a better flash cart for the money anyway.

    Bri is right. This has happened many times before. Yeah, it's been like two weeks now, just don't panic.

    I haven't been able to access it for some time also. I don't think its dead because they recently released some new firmware and must not be shutting down so soon. I think they are just doing site maintenance or something.

    I don't get how Deal Extreme killed it because I bought mine from there. and it even says that they check for fakes. I think that the DSTT is one of the best cards available.

    There are rumors going about that Nintendo set DSTT in its sites and shut down their website..

    Where have you heard this rumor ??

    If Nintendo is set to 'do in' DSTT & close their site, they've also got to go for all the others [Acekard,CycloDS,DS Xtreme,EDGE,EZ-Flash,R4 DS,Supercard etc] @ the same time - otherwise the users of flashcards will just switch to another.

    They will also have to also close down all the sites that sell them, & I bet that even if they DO manage this amazing feat (afterall no-one has managed to shut down all the Pirate download sites) - another manufacturer will crop up with a new flashcard.. & so the cycle will repeat.

    This will be an impossible thing for Nintendo to achieve.

    They may think 'We'll sue/shut down one flashcard manufacturer & all the others will disappear' but somehow I don't think so.

    I completely agree, shutting down just a single card won't work, for every card
    shut down, about 2 more are made...
