    New Slot-1 Comparison Guide!

    Not just a simple update








    We have just finished designing our slot-1 comparator, a new, updated, better slot-1 comparison guide! We can now easily add and update information; let's hope we will be able to keep it up to date! For now, the following slot-1 solutions are included in the guide:
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    We plan to update it soon with all the existing slot-1. Since there are a lot of slot-1 solutions, we thought it might be useful to be able to select them, and not just have them all in a big chart!

    If you have any suggestion, correction or update, please report it in this topic (the news topic).

    Edit Jan. 21: Ninjapass X9 and AceKard added to the chart.

    This is very neat. I may get a EZ-V soon, and I already have a EZ-IV lite deluxe! [​IMG]
    Is there a comparison thing like this for Slot-2 flashcarts?

    It is inaccurate with the DSLink information. DLDI does exist for the device (dlms_moon.dldi) and works great (read & write) as I have patched everything available that utilizes dldi and it all works with my DSLink. Otherwise, neat guide!

    thanks for the correction zektor

    I had based my info on this:
    http://chishm.drunkencoders.com/DLDI/index.html

    I had misinterpreted the DSLink part: there are two lines (not separated by borders)
    and I thought when the table said "Yes / Failed", it meant that the DLDI doesn't work for the DSLink [​IMG]

    I like it. Now you just gotta release the Supercard DS One review. [​IMG]

    Great guide makes it easy for anyone to choose which slot 1 card to get, instead of making the "which slot 1 should I get" topic. The m3 review should be easy, a few picture and video changes and just changing the word R4 to M3 in the R4 review.

    I am expecting the X9 will be added, and I hope whoever creates this list actually researches the X9 before they listen to people who have a M3 or R4 downplay the X9

    I would also like to see the Acekard added to the list. =D

    You should get the EZV. I haven't had problems with it ever since I got it when it was first released!

    No slowdowns either!

    Yeah, you're right about the X9. Like the Supercard DS (One), the X9 requires special microSD brands... if you have the right brand/model, then you're lucky. If you're not, the X9 is an absolute crap. I've experienced it myself :'(

    "slot-1 comparator"

    Do we have a copyright filed for that yet?

    Yeah, from what I heard the best brand to use on it are the 1GB Kingston from Japan. Thankfully, Modchipman ships that brand with the X9 combo deal. [​IMG]

    It is a useless screen that wastes your time. For example, before the DS-X menu shows up, there is a ~3 seconds "Loading" screen.
    Same on the Supercard, before you can enter the menu, you get a (useless) screen with the Supercard logo.

    Whether this skin could be skipped or not is not relevant. This chart is purely informative [​IMG]


    read this about splash screens:

    A screen that appears when you select the slot1 cart from the DS menu/auto boot in DS settings is set. The splash screen usually shows the name of the flashcart.

    And yes, they do suck.
