Nice review. I like the case your DSI is in.
Hm, after watching this, I can't justify the price. No point in it really then.
Great review, I was wondering where you got your case?
Nice review. The best part of the video was when you slid open the bottom of the case
DSi XL ArmorStore Case
I know everybody said it already but I am jelly of that case.
I never trusted the ievo to begin with. I knew it would be disappointing... and people say the DSTWO sucks... pffft.
In what way is it dissapointing? It does everything TC said it would.
I don't want to start an argument, you are right, it does. but the fact only 2-3 DSi roms are supported sucks. unless an update fixes that it will not get as good sales as they hoped... if developers staart making some good DSiBrew it MIGHT be worth it soon.
But besides emulators what new, innovative things can devs do with cameras? RAM and processing I can see improving a lot though.
Besides, if Sudokuhax matures, the iEvolution will become even less popular.
It's hardly TCs fault people haven't dumped DSi games correctly.
Good point. I guess it is the dumping tools fault for not dumping properly.
Either way I am saying at the moment, despite DSi Mode, it is not fully functional and widely unsupported therefore FOR NOW not worth it. At least that is what I think.
Also note I was disappointed in my DSTWO taking so long for emus and updates for them as well. I am not hating on the TC team. I am glad they both can deliver on their promises, at least. And that TC is still updating their Non-i cart as well. That is good. Especially after the dry spell of updates.
Oh right. Nice review, OP.
I think I had a similar case fro my DS Lite. Just the draw.
And wow, is the cart THAT bad?
Does it do anything with DSiWare?
I think that's the only reason that this card looked appealing to me.
@boobee did you recieve that one from TC or buy it from a reseller? If you got it direct from TC it's a probably pre-production version. The final product will likely be much, much better. And still if it is the final version it's only batch 1.
I got mine from a reseller.
And my cart was horribly messed up too.
We get it, the iEvo is crap.
Anyways, nice review, really making me reconsider buying one.
got mine as a B-day gift (reseller)(realhotstuff.com) i think
Then the reason it's poor build quality is because it's batch 1.
Did you guys really expect the first fully DSi-compatible flashcart to function perfectly out-of-the-box when it's a brand new product and mostly untested? When the SCDS2 first came out, how many of its "special features" worked perfectly? It takes time, in the hands of users who give feedback, before the card will really shine.
Team Cyclops themselves have said that DSi mode was preliminary at best at this stage of the card's firmware development. Future firmware updates should improve DSi compatibility drastically. The simple fact that the cooking game let you put a pic of yourself into the game while you were playing was a first for flashcarts. You guys should give TC at least a little credit for that "evolutionary" ability in a flashcart to play DSi-enhanced games in their "enhanced" mode.
One thing that TC relies on (as does the Supercard Team) is feedback from their forums to improve their card. They didn't have that luxury until the card was in people's hands. Now that the card is available, people can give feedback on their thoughts and experiences with the iEVO. TC will use that information to improve the card with constant firmware updates. Expect DSi compatibility to be constantly improved over the coming months. TC listens to your feedback and fixes the glitches and compatibility issues YOU report, so if you have an iEVO and want it improved, go to the TC forums and report your issues and make suggestions. TC is working on it and will take everything posted on their forums into consideration when improving their card.
If I have any concerns about TC at all, it's that I hope they don't slack off with support for the original CycloDS. Just because they have a new card out, doesn't mean they should forget about the old one. I hope they do well with the iEVO, but for many, they just breathed new life into the old CycloDS with the new GUI becoming the new "official" firmware for it. And I don't know about anyone else, but the new GUI is pretty damn nice. It expanded the CycloDS feature-set immensely and I'd hate to see them stop now.
nice video, I got the same result from my review sample
nothing about this cart justify a $50 price tag
while it's true about the DSTWO when it first came out, the difference is the DSTWO gave us near perfect game compatibility from the start, allowing us to play any clean rom without patch or updates, the iEVO is not doing that. new games does not work on the iEVO, the latest being dragon quest vi
The main selling point of this cart (and the feature fanboys and TC forum mods are hyping) is DSi mode, and right now the DSi mode sucks, add that to mediocre game compatibility and crappy build, the cart is not worth $50, maybe in the future when TC can make DSI mode useful to the average user it might be worth buying but in my review (should be out soon), I recommend people not buy the iEVO too.
right now the acekard or wood r4i gold gives you a better bang for your buck
The only reason to buy an iEVO is for it's "DSi" potential..nothing more
Yes. Because it looks like the Acekard R.P.G. GUI now. 2007.
Akaio users have that GUI for some years now. For $10-15, not $60.
