    7.X keys have been out for a while, no update. Not only that but I checked today and the www.mt-card.com website is down.

    So is it safe to assume MT-Card is dead?

    my bet..

    MT-Card will come with a new flashcart with a new name. which copies that other one with 9.x firmware with the 10 limit.


    the little extra $$$ for the gateway looks good about now, when you had the chance.

    I originally went with MT-Card because it had functionality the Gateway didn't (mainly multi-ROM), not because a few extra dollars.

    MT site works here......i doubt this is the last we have heard of them, but i think they are busy chasing a piece of the new pie (9.x support)

    Even before the card came out gateway already announced they were working on multirom (even though said update took 3 months to release)

    Lol. So a team that doesn't look active for a long while, and you still would want to buy a MT card if they support 9.2?
    Sorry but that just sounds dumb. Why not get Gateway instead..

    And not only that, but why would you want to support MT card team? So they can clone GW again?

    At this point I'd say vampires, aiming at sky3ds' necks

    I'm starting to think what almost everyone thinks: that the MT team is the one behind the sky3ds. Since even before that card arrived they didn't give any signs of life what so ever, even after the constant gateway updates. Being a gateway clone, I expected a little delay between their updates but not THIS delay... I was thinking about selling my MT card to get a gateway, but I feel that I would be trolling someone if I did that. Maybe I'll just buy the gateway card and keep both...

    web sites go down regularly, there are things called maintenances or sometimes servers just go down for different technical reasons/failures
    seeing a web site down, doesn't mean the company disappeared and doesn't really warrant a new thread for every website issue

    btw currently it is not down for me

    Site is fine from Canada. For those who it is not working for, use an unblocker or vpn (ZenMate on Chrome) and try it that way.

    I actually think the Gateway team is behind the MT-Card lol. I know it sounds weird, but look:

    1. Release Single Rom Card (Gateway), people buy it, with Emu-Nand.
    2. Release Multi Rom Card (MT Cad). people buy it thinking it is the better alternative. (some even switch from Gateway, or get it as 2nd card)
    3.Release Multi Rom For Gateway. (Now MT Card users want to switch)
    4.Release Emu-Nand for MT. (not mt card is looked up as good alternative again, interest in both cards exist)
    5.Update both
    6.Only update gateway (MT Card users have to switch to Gateway to play the newest releases, which are some of the most anticipated games, SSB, Pokemon etc.)

    Well if that's true, Iif I was part of the team I would people to have reasons to want both cards instead of just one...
