    @Flashme Vs. Passcard 3 - by Kirby102:

    Flashme drains the battery faster? WTF? That's the first I've heard of this, and I seriously doubt it's true, given the nature of a firmware.

    Yeah I was wondering too.
    I'm confused, I don't use Flashme and I had never heard/read such a thing about Flashme.

    This thread discussing it? What happened with PMs... Oh well nevermind. [​IMG]

    But yeah, it seems to reduce it by 1 hour or so... for my DS. **Assuming if you didn't have original cart [​IMG]

    And I also found that other people have/have not been affected by the battery drain:
    I hope it did help you guys, and me [​IMG] (oh noes, flaw in review *prays no -1pt on review*) :'(

    I'm no expert but all of those times are similar except for the one using the original DS Cart. Surely this means that it is the Supercard draining the battery life and not the firmware as there is no mention of how the Flashed DS runs with just an original Cart

    UnFLashed DS
    Orginal Cart: 5hrs 10Mins
    SuperKey in DS Slot: 4hrs 15Mins
    SuperKey Removed: 4hrs 22Mins

    FLASHED DS
    DS Slot Empty: 4hrs 20 Mins
    DS Slot with Cart: 4hrs 24 Mins
    Using SuperCard Lite: 4hrs 24 Mins

    I'm not flaming you or anything, more info the better for everyone... [​IMG]

    FLASHED DS
    DS Slot Empty: 4hrs 20 Mins
    DS Slot with Cart: 4hrs 24 Mins
    Using SuperCard Lite: 4hrs 24 Mins

    I might be guessing that would be the original cart, as the use of a passthrough device is unnecessary anymore. Although his results weren't very specific in categories (it could be game and SCLite in at the same time, we don't know), so I wouldn't be the judge of his times. [​IMG]

    GREAT REVIEWS GUYS!

    I found the review of the Japanese games very useful. I hope there are more reviews of these wonderful import oportunities. One small suggestion in these reviews would be the inclusion of the 'language-barrier-difficulty' levels of the imports, so we know if the game is playable by Engilsh talking people with ot without major problems.

    KEEP THOSE REVIEWS COMING!

    (does my review of the review counts as a review? :-)

    i wouldn't post the reviews until the competition's over because people can get some ideas from them and use it in some way for their own.
