    Hi all, I've had an Edge for a while, its getting a tad old at 5 years.

    So, the question is, which card should I get next that has good compatibility with most games, saves well without corrupting saves, and has decent customization to it?

    Thanks, Eliwood

    I think you mean Mod move, not Mod lock. Anyway, AK2i has excellent ROM Compatibility and is regularly updated with AKAIO whilst still being very much affordable. The super card dstwo, although Pricier has GBA and SNES emulation and equally great ROM compatibility then the Acekard. (Arguably better ROM Compatibility at times).

    I just got a Acekard2i, DSTwo, and CycloDS evolution. Each has it's own pros/cons for me. I'm new to flashcarts and here is my opinion from 2-3 days with them.

    Acekard2i with Akaio 1.7.1 runs great. Editing the ini I can set specific files and folders to not be shown. It lets create shortcuts to folders (check roms). I like the variety of options for lists to be displayed. There are probably tons of customization option that aren't shown in the settings.

    CycloDS was pricey. It doesn't work on DSi, but I have a lite. MicroSD slot isn't spring. Might not seem important, but being new ti carts it's a little harder to work with. The menu is a little too simple, but has some cool skins that take advantage of the 3 icons. RTS has to be activated individually for each game you want to use it on. Random option for skins. There are probably some more pros, but hard to say compared to the other two. Not bad, yet I wouldn't recommend it or buy another.

    DSTwo is also great. I think the default skins are ugly, but has more that can be skinned. Chrono Trigger skin is pushing this to be my fav. It also plays Pokemon B & W without a problem (so far), so that says something about it's compatibility. I can't seem to figure out how to switch rom list to show game names instead of file names if it's possible. It has lots of plugins available and i think you can make custom plugins. The real time menu is very nice.

    I'd say Acekard2(i) for cheap or DSTwo if you can/want spend a little more.

    buy an acekard 2I or a scds2
    they are the best cards out there they are basically the same except scds2 has a wider diversity of
    features and has better rom compatibility. I have both of these cards i recommend acekard 2i
    as it cheaper and one of the best carts out there but if u want something that has extra stuff but a bit
    pricier then go for the scds2 because it is the best cart ever just got mine yesterday.....
    frickin amazin

    hope that this helps

    I actually recommend EZ-Flash Vi, it offers decent amount of customization (features, not skins).

    I find that Acekard 2i and SCDS2 are somewhat limited in terms of customization.

    Believe me, EZ-Flash Vi is an underrated flashcart. Do look into it.

    Actually the Supercard DStwo has the SDK which potentially makes it extremely customisable.
