    Is the Supercard DSTwo any good? I already got an Acekard 2i and I am looking to purchase another card but of different company/brand/kit/etc and SC DSTwo caught my eye since it can also emulate GBA games, how is the compatibility and is the card still supported till this day?

    Here is the link if it's allowed: http:// www . eachgame.hk/ goods-3099.html also anyone bought from Each Game online store before? Reliable and genuine products?

    Ever since I've bought my DSTWO, nothing in my life has changed. Suffice to say, it isn't life changing.

    So in other words it's nothing to call home about? Should I get another Acekard 2i then? I just need a card that's genuine, doesn't easily break, have issues or anything like that. >.

    Go with the Acekard 2i. Yes the Supercard DStwo has nice "feature", but honestly they're not very good and haven't been updated in forever. As well the software for it hardly ever gets any updates and the Supercard Team has made very hard for people to support it since they always release broken software.

    Oh, but I already have the Acekard 2i here ... someone told me it's 1:1 copy but it works ok up till today and Acekard 2i have a lot of clones. Also, I thought Supercard DSTTwo is constantly updated too?

    If your Acekard works with AKAIO (from akaio.net) it should be a real card and not a clone. The Supercard DSTwo does update for the DSi/3DS firmware updates and the patches update, but they never really update the EOS, nor the plugins like the GBA emulator or SNES emulator. Pretty much they all work, but they need some serious updates to be even considered good.

    Eachgame.hk is my preferred seller for most items. I have never had any hassle, or counterfeit items, delivered while using them. Don't buy a Supercard DSTwo. At this point in the game just get an acekard 2i or R4i Gold 3DS (www.r4ids.cn) :)

    I am running AKAIO 1.8.9 (from acekard.com) and all games runs fine w/ no problems so far, no save corrupts. So far so good ; ) ahhh I see... I think I will do a bit more research. Thanks for the head up!

    Glad that eachgame.hk is a trusted source! ; ) is the R4i Gold getting constant update? Lol, I guess I wouldn't mind about which card as long as it's stable, good and is continually updated.

    It's officially supported by Wood so updates come quick and steady. :D

    No problem ^_^ The Supercard DSTwo is a good card, but I wish the Supercard team would do something more with it.

    As well I never used that site, but I do know the R4i Gold (from www.r4ids.cn) is a great card that is always updating as well it runs Wood R4, which in my option is the greatest kernal ever made.

    So I guess my Acekard 2i is genuine then, oh wow, didn't know the R4i Gold is a lot cheaper than the DSTwo too. ; )

    Awesome! :D

    Is this the one you guys would recommend or is it some other R4i Gold?

    Don't go with that one, it's not the one that supports Wood, go with this one
    http://www.zhuzhuchi...?category_id=17
    I know it's not the same site, but that site doesn't seem to have the right R4i Gold
    The card most be from this site www.r4ids.cn, any other R4i Gold will not work with Wood R4.

    Sorry for being late on this, but you're exaggerating. Everything works fine on the DSTWO, just some plugins are rough around the edges (mostly the SNES emulator and iReader).

    I'd consider the GBA emulator good, the EOS good, the plugin menu decent (but can be replaced with iMenu or BAGPLUG), CATSFC decent, iPlayer decent, iReader sucks, MAME4All is good, and Moonshell is good.

    You really think so? I actually like the iReader. (well, everything apart from the name)
