    Ok, as far as i know, both cards are great and got good compatibility, BUT:

    which one of them has the BEST compatibility (ONLY for NDS-games) at the moment? I read something about slow-downs with SC and Spiderman-trouble with M3. Whats the situation and what should be my choice? Do they both have slow-downs and Spiderman-problems? Thx for your replies.

    Spiderman works fine after skipping intro (crap game) and animal crossing works perfectly, you might want to look into your patching options because that's not a m3 fault.

    SuperCard has a slightly better compatibility than M3. It´s 0,1% better, I guess.

    They're both as good in my opinion except whenever there's a big name game that doesn't work, M3 manages to release an update very quick.

    If you're worried about compatibility, you can always go for the 512MB DS-Xtreme if you don't mind the small space, don't plan on playing GBA games or use the GBA to DS link feature to unlock bonus content [​IMG]

    Thx for your answers!
    2 Short new questions:

    1. Which NDS-games are better with SC?
    2. What is the best solution for SCUMM? CS or M3?

    Thx again, you help me a lot!

    And my opinion towards DS-X: Great product, easy to use, not enough Space but (and that`s very important) questionable support in the future and maybe the HUGE Problem with Pokemon (or every game in the future with big save-files) which (in the worst case) can`t be solved at all or only with a complicated method.

    1. To everyone: No difference. Some people just like to over exaggerate things and call one product better than the other. If you like to hang on to tiny and stupid things, try the army instead of the DS scene.

    For the asker: The DS compability is the same... has been said many times so I don't understand why you didn't search for it.

    2. Doesn't matter. The manual says that both work, then they do.

    As far as DS compatibility they’d be about the same. And you already know about
    GBA, so all that’s left is Homebrew & price & the Supercard has the advantage there.

    1. None, they are the same.
    2. The latest build (beta6) works with all M3 and SC models --> the same here too.

    Your decision should now depend on GBA performance and price as the other things are equal. You should ask yourself is the extra cash you'd pay for M3 or G6 worth the better (near perfect) GBA support? Then decide.

    SC is best for DS games and Homebrew.

    Ultimate spiderman works on SC-lite without any skipping tricks

    Spyro (latest one) works on all SC's not on M3.

    Also the M3 has saving problems with loads of new games, nearly always once a few new roms come out the M3 needs fixes, and often the new software breaks older games. SC harldy ever needs special settings like 'safe mode' to get roms running, and all (100%) games on SC can use the fast memory option, where M3 has problems getting all the roms running with fast mem options. Plus SC saves and loads faster, and the M£ has a crappy slow menu.

    M3 is better for GBA games.

    it has problems saving with new releases for like... 2 or 3 days? new updates are released frequently. Havent had any problems playing olders games as well.
    Fast Memory (4X) works with almost all games now.... dunno where you read that.
    Menu isnt slow to me... just change the skin.
    Oh and game loading depends from what options you used to patch the rom.


    Its your choice, either pick a good card thats more turned to the DS scene and cheaper!
    OR
    A Card thats turned to both DS and GBA scene, and a little more expensive.

    I for one, am quite happy with my M3, although i'm thinking of buying either a DS-X or an Acekard(this one depends on the future reviews)

    then you got storage.
    supercard is limit to 2GB due to it only uses fat 16.
    m3 can use fat32 therefore 128GB is max.
    (wont be seeing cards that big in a while but you get the picture).

    more storage maybe good but you tend to complete games less due to variety.
    ive only completed phoenix and pirates sinces june 2006..
