    Supercard MiniSD review

    Thanks a lot to Vince989 for writing a nice review of the Supercard MiniSD version!
    Click here to read the review and to find out the differences between the normal version (on the right part of the pic) and the miniSD version (on the left part).
    I'd also like to thank personnally Kicktrading who supplied us with the kit.

    Nice review Vince989.

    I don't think I entirely understand the new GBA saving benefit though, do you not have to use the button combination to save now?

    bit late but I guess now they can work on a gba cart that fits into a nintendo ds lite.

    Great review!

    Fantastic review. Did exactly what it should do. Enlighten me on points where the cart does or doesn't preform, and even tells me somethings I didn't know about it.

    Any US sites that carry it? Also what pricing? I was looking at the GBA EZFLASH IV MINI SD DEVKIT from jandaman until I spotted this review [​IMG]!

    Gah, I hate eBay [​IMG]. Oh well, I may have to for this one... any seller you'd recommend? Also, is the minisd supercard the best one to go for, or is an M3 mini-sd better? What about the EZ Flash IV? I'd prefer the lower price, but can shell out if it's gonna get me a nicer product with better update/game support. Also finally, the passcard2, will it negate the need to do a flash forever with flashme, and act the same as having done that?


    EDIT: Just looked at kicktrading, what is the passme I would need to do a flashme on my NDS (older-style one with the metroid hunters demo pack-in from awhile back)? Also, how does the CAD/USD conversion work, what they put in the cart in USD is what I will be charged, or does it depend on exchange rates etc. at time of order? Looks like they have what I want, and at good prices.

    SuperCard Mini-SD is cheaper if you just want NDS support... GBA works on it but not as well as the M3... I don't have a passcard2 I just flashed my DS... But I got (well am getting once it arrives in the post) a Max Media Launcher for when I get my DS Lite [​IMG]

    I am thinking I oughta just go the flashing route tho for the DS, so what card would I need to do the flash with? Thanks for all the help! Also, is that m3 mini-sd adapter good? I might go with that instead, debating on GBA stuff still. Will this bundle: http://www.kicktrading.ca/product_info.php?products_id=71 let me flash the DS with the flashme stuff, and then just use the mini-SD m3 part of it without that bulky passme thing?

    Yep, I've tested a few GBA games on it and didn't need any weird save patching or button combos to save, I just saved like I would with my normal cart and turned it off.

    About time gbatemp did a unbiased review (lol, as if skining the patching software is important) of the supercard.

    Just so you know, and even though I don't want to get deep in the subject, I don't think we've ever had any bias. We have our kits supplied by shops (except maybe once or twice where the companies sent them), and that might be the only bias we have. For the rest, it just depends on what the reviewer thought of the kit. We are NEVER paid by anyone for our reviews, if that can clear matters up; we only like to spread our opinions on the carts and GOOD information around... [​IMG]

    EDIT : Also, if you look closely at the cart image up there, you can see the SRAM battery at the left, taking a good amount of the space inside the cart... [​IMG] I really find it amazing how everything is TIGHT in there... [​IMG]

    Fantastic review, Vince. I just got around to reading the whole thing, and as I said in the staff section you really seem to have gotten to the core of the product. This really seems like an excellent budget solution to some of the more expensive brands. But still, I long for the days when we see a flashcart that gets a 9.5-ish review. A near perfect flashcart. Anyways, once again, great review. [​IMG]
