    [​IMG] So yeah... He's seen me with my R4DS. Please, feel free to kill him and his big mouth. I wouldn't be surprised if the R4 was on a commericial the next week or so. (Just kidding, but you get the point.)

    His dad went to China to get an R4, because he is paranoid of shopping online.
    He came back the next week (Today.)

    I'm talking to my little cousin, and I'm worried about his R4, since he got it from China.
    I showed him this Pic:
    [​IMG]

    I asked him which box he got, and he said the one on the left.
    So now.. He has a fake R4. He says: "I don't care, it'll still work the same as yours!" (He's only 10.. But at least he broke out of his MMORPG habit.)

    He's coming over on Friday so I can set up his "R4" for him.

    So is there anything I can do with his counterfeit R4? I see that it's a poor MK5 clone... Although I have never used a Magickey product before. He told me it comes with a DS Lite slot cover too. (Which I doubt that is what it is)

    He went all the way to China to get an R4? Haha, oh wow!

    If he was so paranoid about buying from a Chinese merchant, he could have just gotten one from RHS, they're based in New Jersey.

    why do i find it hard to believe your cousin's dad was like "hey since i don't like shopping online i'm going to china to get you that r4!"? unless he was going there already of course

    He was only 10 [​IMG] and he had already started to play MMORPG? Lucky you got him out now, i had a friend who was addicted you should see what they become [​IMG] but I got him off them. As long as it almost does the same job as an R4, who really cares, and plus his young and naive like he really cares.

    you guys with addiction to MMORPGs need Dial UP, when u cant even surf or download anything off the internetz, you wont even think about playing online.
    not to mention that you have to pay for every minute u r online for a 2kbps with disconnects.

    i welcome all addicts here to have a night online with me! mowhahahahah!

    Is this the same cousin from that thread last week? The one who broke his DS and proceeded to play MAPLESTORY? You can punch him in the face for me.

    As for the fake R4 - if it is a NCard clone it should work well. I'm just wondering if you could use the USB adapter from the FCard (another clone) with your fake R4.

    If you could, I would go an try to find one. From what I've heard, copying to the NCard through the slot2 adapter takes FOREVER.

    Just treat the fake R4 as if it were an N card and it will be fine. N cards are drag-and-drop too if I'm not wrong, so all you gotta do is ensure the firmware and stuff are up and running and drag those roms in.

    yep they play all the roms without a hitch [​IMG] the only thing thats annoying is the slot 2 linker you need to use which makes the transferring of files a little slow.

    If you need any help feel free to drop me a pm [​IMG]

    Thats quite funny lol
    he went to China?

    and I don't find the NCard's transfer rate slow,
    Its not too bad. Unless you transfer from a zip file or rar straight to the NCard.

    Should be fine if its an NCard clone.

    If he went to China just to buy an r4 he could've at least risked £20 rather than the flight cost.... O.o

    OBJECTION! [cue Investigation~ Cornered (Variation) from PW OST]

    I thought
    You can't use an R4 (Clone or not) without a DS. [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure Nero means that his cousin's dad was on the way to China and will buy one for his son while he was there. I wouldn't see the point in flying to China just to get it either.

    I heard NCards can't do multiplayer.

    Did I hear correct?
