    On Tuesday 19th June at 9pm GMT (click here to see that time in other timezones) I will be running a live webcam feed showing you the CycloDS Evolution. The feed has a live chat box so you can ask me any questions however if the questions require me to use other files (eg. homebrew or a particular ROM) please contact me beforehand the show in a PM. I'll also set up some fixed videos of generic things like an overview of the hardware and me navigating the loader so I won't have to repeat things over and over again (these fixed videos will also be in higher quality).
    The session will run for between 30 minutes and an hour depending on how busy it gets.

    The page I will broadcast from is located here

    Links to premade videos
    What's in the box
    Download Play
    Overview of the Firmware
    Overview of the Hardware
    Updating the Evolution

    What I will not do:
    Open up the cart
    Try any homebrew I have not heard of
    Get shouted at because you want me to test a ROM and I have not got it. I'll get it, just be patient please.

    Session Ended

    Don't worry, I'll ask a friend to mirror the pre-made videos and the webcam feed is run off another server anyway.

    Unfortunatly I missed the shipment (I was gone for like 10 minutes and I came back and I saw the truck driving off...) so I will have to put the show back to the same time on Tuesday night...

    I guess you're not gonna be doing this on Sunday anymore. I'm leaving to go to New York to visit my relatives on Tuesday so there's a chance I'll miss this. By any chance will you be able to record it and put it up online (or will we only be able to see parts of it that will already be up like you mentioned earlier)?

    Sam, what microSD cards do you have available to test? I can't watch the show since I'll get at school at that time, so hopefully somebody can record it [​IMG]

    1GB completely unbranded
    2x 1GB Kingston (SD-C01G JAPAN)
    1GB SanDisk
    2GB SanDisk

    I'll try and record it and I think I can

    Since I won't be there it won't hurt to ask this now, can you put Castlevania: POR on each of those cards with a save thats relatively close to a portal or Wind/Vincent, and try to freeze the game? It may be a bit troublesome switching cards, but I'm sure many people are interested in this result

    Okay I was hoping it was, as the Cyclo is remarkably like the DS Link
