    Neoflash MK-R6 Gold & Silver announced!

    New slot-1 flash kit with built-in motion sensor








    The Neoflash team have announced two brand new slot-1 flash kits - the MK-R6 Gold and the MK-R6 Silver.

    The MK-R6; the team's latest effort, is a slot-1 DS game card sized flash kit. It uses micro SD cards, supports clean ROMs through drag and drop, has built-in "magickey pass2", a 2M EEPROM, 2M SRAM buffer, 16M programmable flash menu, homebrew support and DS Lite brightness adjustment. But the most unique feature of this cart lies within the 'Gold' version of the MK-R6. The Gold edition will have a built in accelerometer and gyro sensor which will be compatible with all homebrew that was designed around the original NDS Motion Cart. The 'Silver' version of the MK-R6 will not include the accelerometer or gyro sensor.
    Also included in the MK-R6 packages is a cart carrying case in various colours, a micro SD USB card reader and CD-ROM.

    Keep your eyes peeled to GBAtemp in the coming weeks for our hands-on impressions with the MK-R6 Gold & Silver.

    You gotta be pretty dumb to buy a NeoFlash product considering their crappy support.

    is this manufactured by the same company that produced the R4 flash cart?

    also, the on board ram could solve "issues" with using wii/ds link functionalty like with pokemon battle revolution.

    No it's not, it's just designed to look that way it seems! [​IMG] Though the Neoflash team did manufacture the NDS Motion Pak/Cart.

    Could somebody explain me what is the "original NDS motion cart", and how does it change homewrew support? I know this is a pretty dumb question, but I really want to know [​IMG]

    Hmm... Is there a lot of homebrew that uses it? (I think it is kind'a MK-R6-related, since it has the functionality, isn't it?)

    PS. MK sounds more like a weapon (you know what i mean) than a flash cart [​IMG]

    Neoflash were the first company to release a slot 1 flash cart! Okay... compatibility sucked, it stuck out of the top like a sore thumb and at first you needed a slot 2 card just to be able to boot the thing, but at the time it was pretty neat!

    I'm trying to be optimisic with this announcement of the R6 but no SDHC support? Will be interesting to see how well it fares with TH:DJ and CV:POR speed wise and download play. Gyro sensor is cool but not exactly much one can use it with at the mo. [​IMG]

    When I saw R6 I thought that the R4 team made a new flashcard.

    I'll stick to my M3 Simply. Gyro sensors are a nice touch, but not to many homebrew games use it, plus I see no mention of any SDHC compatibility...

    Edit: And maybe its the screens but the sticker and casing look really cheap... [​IMG]

    Thanks for that..now that we know your feelings.

    R4 should sue them for using the name R6.

    If you buy a neoflash, and a game doesn't work down the road, ha well it'll never work cause your firmware will never have an update.
