Hey,

I wanted to see if anyone has actually ordered from new3dscard.com recently. I did a search and couldn't find any real recent info.

Based on a few recommendations I ordered from them because of the supposed us stock and fast shipping. I ordered a r4i gold a week ago, my card was charged but then their site went down for a few days. Their email doesn't work it gets instantly rejected.

The sites back up and my order says it was shipped the 26th but I should have had it by now. It's a 2 day zone from California to me.

Any info on this company would be good. It's safe to say if you are in the market do not order from these guys right now.

Thanks

I was looking for the same information. I ordered on 8/11/2016. Paid for the 1 to 4 days shipping in US and nothing so far. I tried emailing them and the email address on site kicks back. So not having a very good feeling about this.

Any luck on your end?

thanks,

Hey, ya actually.

So I did end up filing fraud with my bank. Interestingly a few days after that they contacted me from [email protected]. saying it already shipped. And by that they meant they had literally just shipped it. I think they were trying to cover their butts. Definitely shady and I would never recommend dealing with them. You can't charge someone and then have zero way to contact them. I did however receive the card finally but again this was after I had to finally file fraud. It also wasnt as good build quality as the r4i gold sdhc RTS card I bought from Nds.

http://www.nds-card.com was awesome and I'd recommend ordering from them. It might take a little bit longer but its absolutely worth it. Great card and they respond near instantly to you and are very helpful.

    But I have a $1 off coupon so that's nice.

    Debating with myself.

    @Veho, Whatchu after, Veho?

    I don't mind the price, but there is a very real chance I won't ever touch it once it gets here.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Because my brain is fucked up.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    $100 for a console is not a lot. $100 for a plastic brick to put on a shelf is a lot.

    I got a Pi5 Veho, loaded like 400GBs of games tested a few and now it sits lol
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Next to the Pi4
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Although the Pi5 features 2TBs of Nvme goodness
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I had hoped Killer Instinct Gold on the N64 would improve..... It did not, so not a speed issue, emulation issue
  • Veho @ Veho:
    On the Pi?

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I was kinda sad about that, got it all set up and fired it up. Side by side Pi4 vs Pi5 and there is literally zero difference
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Although I will say Dreamcast seems to work better
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Maybe there's some single/multi core bullshit that one emulator knows how to use and the other doesn't.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Things where speed was the issue and not the emulator
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Veho probably but based on what I read even on a PC that one game is tough to emulate
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Probably microcode
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    The N64 was ahead of it's time with that BS lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    FPGA N64 emu when?
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's amazing how annoying those old consoles are to emulate. Like, you can emulate Gamecube and Wii on a calculator, but like the SNES still has trouble.

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think that one company made one?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Yeah the issue from what I understand is they used old hardware that was more finicky about timings and speeds, newer stuff was more about shaders and APIs lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And half the stuff relied on weird interference inside the chip and not actual intended functionality.
