    I am sorry if this has been asked before but which manufacturer supports their products the best. Am thinking about buying a slot one card for my new NDS lite.

    AceKard seems to have pretty good support.

    cyclo DS, Edge, and supercard seem to have good support. acekard can be a little patchy sometimes (bleach still doesn't work, and a few older games only work with the old loader (by holding the button when launching))

    i would say acekard, scds and maybe ezflash for official support. dstt, r4 and acekard is quite widely used to you can expect a lot of support from the homebrew community, ie ysmenu or akaio... and to some extent stuff like menudo and dsision, which isn't really a bad thing too.

    edge does have a great compatibility so it's really great as it is, though official updates have been few. team edge usually release an update every 1.5 - 2 months, but nothing major, just a few game patches here and there. don't expect much new features and homebrew support for it if you get it, though it's a solid cart with the best loading times etc.

    cyclods is good too, i think the team cyclops is still developing features for it so it may be a good choice too, if you don't mind the high price

    i would suggest an ez3-in-1 for slot 2 since it can pretty much do anything you'd need a slot 2 for, ie boot gba games, rumble and exp ram for opera browser.

    most slot 1 have pretty good support for ez3-in-1 so it's up to your budget and choice

    True, but the Acekard Team is really nice to deal with if you have problems [​IMG]

    Watch who your calling a 'shade tree developer' I'm not part of the official team no but i by far provide the best support, games fixes usually come out the day the game is released. Any bugs reported are taken care of swiftly and any feature requests (within reason) are usually added within the week.

    its not an insult.... its just a moderately archaic term for "hobbyist". ie, someone that does something in the shade of a tree....
