    I need another card since i got a fake r4 and acekard 2.1. I want to have to cards to use together but a fake r4 is not the best option.
    I was just wondering if

    The compatibility is good, assuming the updates are regular since alot of people recommened the dstwo
    If it works with ez flash 3 in 1 new model
    and i know that this is a sort of rude question to ask on these forums
    but is shoptemp reliable, does it supply dstwos (if there is such a thing yet) and are the microsd's it sell fake?

    There
    1.Compatibility is more or less perfect...
    2.Not sure,but I assume you can use GBAExploader if it doesn't
    3.It's reliable,got mine from there,and they test every product they have,so rest assured,their mirco SD's aren't fake

    The DSTwo has more features than an acekard.

    I CBA to even list them, check reviews and shit.

    Shoptemp is highly reliable, their orders typically arrive between 1-2 weeks on free shipping.
    They do supply the DSTwo, they currently low on stock but will be restocked on Thursday.
    The microSDs they have are most definitely genuine. At first there were occasional complaints about their Kingston microSDs, but they have since resolved that, and nobody complains any more.

    Hope that answers your questions!

    Supercard DSTwo is an amazing piece of kit. Right now this is the best feature packed flashcart in the market.

    But anyways.

    1. It is compatible with most new games, almost perfect (nothing can be perfect though).
    2. Hmmm I don't know about this one. It does have an in-built GBA emulator which is good.
    3. Shoptemp = Reliable. MicroSD's from Shoptemp = Genuine. Does Shoptemp supply SCDS2? Ofcourse! [​IMG]

    Grab one while the price is low!

    If you have DS Lite, you can use EZ-Flash 3in1 instead of SCDS2 if you want to play GBA.

    I would recommend SCDS1 + EZ-Flash 3in1. SCDS1 and SCDS2 are pretty much the same. With SCDS2 comes with CPU to emulation GBA/SNES game and higher DS compatibility.

    Yeah, I would recommend SCDS1 if you want real time feature in that case.

    I have DSTWO card, works almost everytime with new games. Galaxy Racers didn't work when it was released(even though it was a crap game), however fix was very quick. However I have noticed that some older games do not work. Not sure why!!
    Obviously it's still supported by official site, as it's new.
    It's a great card.

    I was toying with the idea of getting a Acekard 2i also, but after looking into the ismart premium this looks like a good cheap alternative to Akecard.

    Hope this helps.

    The 3 in 1 is only supported though GBA linking and Rumble; meaning you can't boot GBA natively. All you need is GBAexploader so you can get them to boot, but I would stick to using your Acekard since it's tons easier.

    Yeah but there are some really nice skins out there, also spinalcord is working on replacing the plugin menu to something smoother and with better homebrew compatibility. I was one of the lucky two to get chosen to test it, so far it works nicely.



    This was one of the early revisions, so it was a bit buggy.

    No, you still have all the same features as on a DSi. [​IMG]

    More actually - you have the option to use a 3 in 1 if you want. that is am option not available for any DSi user. Of course you may not want to since you have a GBA emu on the DSTWO lol.

    Personally, I don't really recommend the SCDS2 for you. Since you have a Lite, and not a DSi.
    GBA Emulation is quite poor in comparisment with an EZ 3-in-1. And it definitly drains your battery life more than the EZ, in combination with the Acecard.

    The reasons to buy a SCDS2 for a DS-Lite with an EZ-Flash that are left:
    - (Future) divx support etc. (Which will drain battery life much more, in comparisment with converted Moonshell videos)
    - Better SNES emulation. (Which is not perfect now)

    Other options like the in-game-cheat-menu etc. are not really that helpful, the ingame cheat-engine-thingy is not working good on most games. (Since you can not find pointers)

    Compatibility etc. should be the same as Acecard/CycloDS/Wood (R4). In combination with your EZ, GBA compatibility should be (nearly) perfect.

    Just see if the extra pricetag is worth the extra futures. [​IMG]

    I have heard the game compatibility is better on the DSTWO than DSONE.
    The RTC (Real Time Cheats) i would use alot.
    I would use the game guides
    And i can't get any videos to convert to mpeg2 (or in other words ds format) and i have certainly followed the steps on all converters i tried, and the converters where recommended on GBATemp and other good forums so the divx would be worth if i got a charger handy.
    I dont want to get an R4 or acekard because i got both them, cyclods cost more (at least on shoptemp)
    Plus a DSI in the near future is a possibility
