    I'm seeing way too many "Which flashcart should I buy?" threads and I felt this would help clean them up. Simply fill in the template below and post it here. Someone will probably be kind enough to answer with a flashcart name and a suggested shop.

    Delete what's the parentheses and put your information

    System: (DS, DSL, DSi, DSi XL/LL)
    Country: (USA, UK, Canada, etc)
    Price range: (specify currency)
    Other requirements: (features you want, etc)
    Suggested: (flashcarts you're already interested in)
    Additional information: (additional necessary info that hasn't been covered in the above. Delete this entire line if there is none)

    Useful links before you make a decision...

    List of flashcart dealers never to buy from

    GBAtemp's Official List of Flashcart Dealers *Slightly outdated*

    Flashing Hardware and Software Forum

    I didn't bother linking to the reviews since many of them are outdated.

    Price range: less then 30$
    Other requirements: Supports as many games possible and support for future games.
    Suggested: I already have a DSTT
    Additional information: Well i own a DSTT atm but it seems future games won't be supported or playable in the near future as i see it now, but i could be wrong would be nice to have a card that updates regularly so latest games could be playable(dying to play bejeweled).
    I dont want the most popular game, rather just the best card atm.

    Thanks in advance.

    Seeing as all you want is to play games well i would suggest the Acekard 2i to you as it updates quick and fits in well to what you want.

    System: At the moment a DS Lite, though it's almost on it's death bed, and therefor I will be replacing it with a DSi XL or DSi some day.
    Country: USA
    Price range: Price really is not an issue
    Suggested: I would like an interface like the old R4DS's as I used to have one, and wouldn't like to bother learning a new one.

    iEDGE is kind of like the R4 interface and probably the best thing that is close to it.

    @Guild Don't we already have a topic for this? Well I'd suppose it is burried somewhere. Edit: Actually its still on the first page of this section. Do people not want to scroll down? [​IMG]

    Boxshot is right, it's own the first page.

    But one has to wonder, that thread has like 140+ pages...why has it not been stickied yet? Maybe they're testing the theory that an old non stickied thread is seen more than a stickied thread [​IMG]

    WHO NEEDS SIX

    AND IT'S FOUR

    AND ONE OF THEM IS R4 FIRMWARE (WHY WOULD YOU WANT THAT)

    GAAH

    FABRICATED STATEMENTS RULE; LIKE CAPS LOCK!

    Short: amount of firmwares loses to compatibility (though, it is really great in M3 it seems) but saying it runs 6 firmwares when it has 5 where one is actually just a multiboot firmware choice system and one of them is a firmware far inferior - in levels that you actually should not even WANT to run it on M3 - well...

    anyway. As saying, saying "IT HAS SIX FIRMWARES" is like saying "HOLY HOLE THIS HAS USELESS LOAD OF OTHER SHIT! GET IT!" (because as long as I think, sakura is the best only choice.

    System:DSL
    Price range:Less than $30
    Other requirements:Best compatibility for existing games and should have good support from the team.Fast OS and optional RTG and RTS. Good build quality.
    Suggested: Supercard DSone(i),M3i Zero,iEdge? Maybe an AK2i
    Additional information:I am looking for a repleacement for my DSTT due to its outdated firmware. I used to have a CycloDS but unfortunately lost it during a bus trip. Anyway, I want to be able to play the newer games that are released and also want good build quality since I have already destroyed my AK2i with my idiocy.

    If you want a cart with the best firmware and features go for the M3 Real(NOT ZERO)
    Or
    If you are ready to have slightly more extra features, better build quaility but slower firmware go for Supercard DS ONe

    Why the M3 Real? Why not the M3i Zero? Also I dont need the ram,rumble or gba expansions.
    Could you please give me a comparison of the M3s and Supercard DSone in terms of built quality, firmware, combatibility, usability, features etc?

    Because it's cheaper if you have a DS Lite. If you're going to buy an M3, get the M3i0, just in case you ever get a DSi.

    I'd get a SuperCard DSonei though, it's a really solid card with the best support there is.
