    I have been looking at reviews for the past few weeks and I am unsure about a few things.
    First and foremost, I am wondering about internet multiplayer, and wi-fi. Second, What are the main differences between a slot-1 and slot-2 solution. I understand that I can read reviews and other guides. But, please understand that it is hard to distinguish between what is real what is false advertised, and technical terms and such. If any one can link me to a helpful article or can give me some pointers on deciding what cart or slot solution would be best. Or If you want to flame me thats cool too.
    Thanks,
    Fox

    if you want to play both gba and ds games you shuld get a slot 2 (gba) based flash cart. and if you want a pure ds flash kit with things like "no patching" and stuff. what i've got out of it is that they seem to have better(?) performence if i haven't got anything wrong.

    if i would buy a flashkit today, i would go with the DS-X (or acekard if you want more memory)
    and then if i wanted to play gba games too i would get a flash kit like... G6L or whatever ;P

    btw, internet and wi-fi haven't been a problem to me. every game i've tried has been working.

    See that hole in your wall?
    I'd like to point this out:

    The short of it is; GBAtemp's reviews are unbiased and contain no false advertising.

    My decision to buy my flashcart was 99% based on what I read on GBAtemp and I have been extremely pleased with it.

    So here's GBAtemp's own reviews that you can check out:

    I have read the reviews twice.. and so it seems that waiting for a slot 1 that is fairly decent is the best idea... am i wrong?

    I'm brand-spankin-new to the DS scene (coming off XBox/360/Gamecube scenes), and this guide is the most amazing thing! I have searched all over for something like this ... and BAM! here it is!

    I thank you!!

    Space.
    That really depends on who you ask, and what thread you're reading. [​IMG]
