    I got my DS stolen a month ago, so, I thought I could kill two birds with one stone by getting a 3DS, I just need to know which flashcart is the best out there for DS roms (I know full well 3DS roms can't be played yet) and a safe place to buy it online, as it seems ebay is against this...I'd also want GBA Rom emulation in it...Also, I heard this thing's gotten a few updates since its release...I'd imagine those updates make some flashcarts useless...if so, please tell me about one that remains unaffected too.

    P.S. Suggest online shopping sites which have international shipping, I'm from El Salvador.

    The best carts are Supercard DSTWO and Acekard. Both of them have excellent compatibility but the DSTWO is better than the Acekard. It has some extra functionality like RTS(Real Time Save) and it can also run Emulators. The only catch with it is it's cost. If you want a cheap flashcart with good compatibility, I advise you to get the Acekard.

    I recommend that you buy it from www.lightake.com or www.realhotstuff.com

    Hope I helped. [​IMG]

    Shoptemp has some sites which you can check out.

    I personally recommend RHS.

    Supercard DSTwo is the best out there, Acekard 2i is decent and affordable.

    It's not called anything. It comes with the DSTWO.

    Oh, I see, so then DStwo is my ONLY option if I wanna play GBA? Then there's no GBA emulator for Acekard...

    No, it isn't your only option.

    A list with info on methods for running GBA games on your DS can be found here.
