    Hey!

    I haven't been following the DS scene very closely lately. I have an old DS Xtreme, and as you probably know, it's dead. It worked great for a couple years, but newer games doesn't work with it. Now I want to play some new games including Pokémon, Golden Sun and a few other games. There are many flashcarts out there but which works the best?

    Supercard DS2 imo

    Best compatibility, most of the time no patches needed for newer games....

    this. it's the best acard around at the moment.

    Though if you don't mind having to wait a while for newer games to work you can take an older (cheaper) card without worries.

    Yeah, the DS2 is probably the best cart you could get, since it has features that others don't, like play GBA games and have exclusive homebrew on it due to the embedded CPU. If you are tight on money, I'd suggest a AK2i. I heard they are good and reasonably priced.

    DS2 = about $35-$40
    AK2i = about $15-$20

    Thanks for the replies! DS2 sounds pretty good. I found a site that has it, but it's on the expensive side... Aeound $60 if i convet it to US dollars. But i guess i'll buy it, because I really want to play some of the newer games.

    i would suggest a CycloDS Ievolution, because it is the only card that works in DSI mode.

    If you only need it for games, don't mind waiting about 1 week for shipping and only want to spend less than $5 than buy an R4, not R4i uberupgradei3dsrevolutionsupercombo pack, just an R4 from one of these sites. Then put Wood R4 on it and voila! you get perfect compatibility for less cost than a packet of Haribo!

    Do note that the R4 only supports SD (not SDHC) cards and only works on a DS/Lite.

    I suggest a Supercard DSTwo, Cyclo iEvolution, or Acekard 2i. The 2i is the cheapest.
