    NEW NDS Flash Kit?
    [​IMG]

    The iSmartDS is a new Flash Kit for the NDS. The Web site lists such features as video playback, AP patching, Cheats, 3in1 expansion packs, an SDK, and more. Could this be another iPlayer/SCDS2 clone? We will attempt to bring you more information as it is made available to us!

    It does indeed sound a lot like the iPlayer/DSTWO, something doesn't seem right here... That or it's something like that other flashcart with a built-in CPU that I keep forgetting. Hmm...

    It doesn't seem like it will have an iPlayer chip in it as it talks about expansion packs such as the 3in1.....

    I get the feeling that people are going to buy this, thinking it's a Supercard DS TWO clone, but only cheaper, and then find that it can't do the same things as the DS TWO. I just feel as though this really can't do all that, and is not a clone of a DS TWO.

    I just don't see this card catching on easily. Not with the DS TWO out, with it's GBA emulator and SDK.

    "Video playback" probably just means .dpg movies. If it really played all movie formats, I think they'd point it out. Loudly.

    So basically, it's just another flash cart that is attempting to be the next great one, even though because of the DS TWO, all flash carts need to be like that in order to stay in the scene, or at least have a good standing.

    Is there anything that can prove me wrong?

    it's just ome of those "cheap carts" with all the standered stuff in alongside RTS, RTG ect
    i don't think it's aimed at that market, to comete against the dstwo and all.
    oh and the site claims the kernal is going to be open source.

    It's gotta be a clone of the SCDS2. Auto anti-piracy? Come on SCDS2 was the first to do that. It's definitely a clone. It might not even get regular updates.

    I have noticed that they are better at grammar and general English than the traditional flashcart company. They still have a bit to go though.

    Yeah, that's been bugging me. Why can't flashcard companies get someone who actually speaks English to translate their horrible ENGRISH into regular English? How hard would that be? I'm sure someone from the Temp would be willing to do it in exchange for a free sample [​IMG]

    ... I don't think they actually have done that yet or at least implemented it.
