    News: New DS Flash Kit on the way?



    The creators of the new G6 flash kit for the Nintendo DS are apparently creating an accessory for NDS support.





    The new device, unimaginatively called a "Pass Key" will expand the features and possibilities of the already released G6 flash kit for the GBA.

    The device will apparently support commercial DS ROMs, but there have not been any other announcements as to whether the device will provide a better boot menu or any extra features to knock the NeoFlash out of the spotlight...


    We'll keep you informed!

    I say it doesn't beat neoflash, unless they make the save function better... and if you could dump real games with it [​IMG]

    looks like in the pix you plug into the DS's card slot then plug a GBA card into its slot never touching the DS's own gba slot. [​IMG]

    Privateer, do you see the notches on the bottom? It goes into the DS slot, and it looks like you have to plug another DS game into it for it to work.

    I'm very glad there's competition in the DS flash cart area now.

    right, but i'm talking about the top part that looks like where you can put a GBA flash card into. so mentally flip the image upside down and insert it to the ds and you can still have room for a GBA flash cart slideing under it .

    Well true, but the slot in the top of it is the same size as the notched part. Or at least it looks that way.

    it looks like a normal PassMe / Magic Key with a more compact design

    I just wonder if you put a GBA cartridge or a DS card into that slot..

    if it has multiboot support and doesn't save on original DS games, I'm surely gonna get one

    I don't even think the G6 Flash cart ever released the 4gig cart.
    I can't contact them either...

    Since I don't agree with the way the Neoflash team has conducted business, (ROM hoarding? How 1997 of you..) I'm quite pleased to see another contender.

    would be nice though if this frees up the gba slot so you can have gba games there and ds games in the correct slot.

    If you look at the image, all it is is a new variation of a PassMe. Since it plugs into the DS slot, and the slot in the card is the same size, obviously your "saving" NDS game will plug into it.
