    It's been a good damn while since I've been keeping up with emulation, homebrew, and just handheld systems in general.

    Why? Because I sold my DS & was busy in school.

    But now I have alot more time and was wondering about buying a DS Lite or 3DS again!

    But I had simple questions for all of you please help me.

    1. What DS system is the best, most compatible, and work super good with Flash Cards/ROMs/Etc ?

    2. Is LoZ Majoras Mask working good on it? (Another reason why I wanna reget this)

    3. Where is the best place to buy the flashcard & WHAT IS THE BEST FLASHCARD?

    thank you so much fam!

    4. For Roms Acejadr 2i, for emulator i guess that is Supercard DSTWO, I have Acekard 2i, but I use towacth videos in moonshel, by the way before I buy the games cartridges. first I run the rom to see if the game is cool or not, Acekard 2i roms the rom like game cartridges, I can say that since I tested the roms of every cartridge that I have and runs like the cartridge games/

    That's a matter of opinion, depending on if you care about the features of a DSi or 3DS. The Nintendo DS Lite is the good in that it cannot receive updates that block flashcarts. If you care about the features of a DSi or DSiXL, even though you might have to play cat-and-mouse in regards to flashcart updates, get that. If you care about having the option of 3DS games, despite lackluster DS graphics and the same cat-and-mouse problem, get a 3DS or 3DS XL.

    As far as I'm aware, no, one cannot play Majora's Mask on a Nintendo DS nor 3DS. I don't think there's a satisfactory N64 emulator for the DS/DSi/3DS. Ocarina of Time 3D is out for the 3DS, but there's no way to play 3DS ROMs; you'll have to use the retail Ocarina of Time 3D.

    The Supercard DSTWO is the best. The R4i Gold 3DS is the second-best. Both of these are great and work on the DSi and 3DS, as well as the DS. If you're using a DS/DSlite with no intention of using your flashcart on a DSi or 3DS, a cheap R4 will suffice.

    Correct. There is currently no way to play 3DS ROMs. You have to buy the 3DS games. You can, however, use something like the Supercard DSTWO to play DS ROMs on a 3DS.

    Regardless, there's no Majora's Mask for the DS nor 3DS.

    There's no way to play 3DS ROMs, there is no N64 emulator.
    Flash carts, even on the 3DS, are limited to the power of the original 2004-model DS.

    Don't get a 3DS for flash carts, because 3DS updates block flash carts from working, and you can't use the 3DS's power or anything.
