    Hello guys (and gals [​IMG])!

    I've got a SuperCard miniSD and never had a problem with it (only PoR, but nevermind, I know why [​IMG]), but now it's time to get something new, because I'm a bit fed up with patching and not having icons in my menu [​IMG]

    I have seen a lot of updates lately, and I'm thinking of getting a SDHC one.

    Now let's get on to the real questions [​IMG]

    1) Has someone with a Wii tried if DS-Wii compatibility works? Like in Pokémon Battle Revolution? There will be a lot of games in the near future (I hope [​IMG] ) supporting this feature, and so it's an important buying point, for me.

    2) Does download play work flawlessly now? Not too much of importance, but it's a good thing to have [​IMG]

    3) Has Moonshell been updated? I have read that they used 1.41... They're still using that?

    4) If I'm correct, nowadays Super Mode is pretty useless, right? [​IMG]

    5) I think I'm getting a Kingmax microSD, because I've seen and tested a lot of cards in the days of the miniSD flashcards and they were the best, but I've never got a hold of a microSD, so I can't really be so sure of it anymore [​IMG] Does someone have them?

    Hmm, that's all I think. If something comes to my mind, I'll ask later [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    1) At the moment, I don't think it is possible. I'm not a firsthand source, this is just what I have heard.

    2) As long as you tick the Download Play box when you're enabling the patch.

    3) Yeah, still old Moonshell.

    4) Dunno about that. I think Super Mode is for Realtime Guide or something.

    5) I think there's a wiki page on it around here. Try searching the wiki.

    Good luck with making your decision =)

    1) I also don't know... but I will find out soon (I'm getting a Wii!)

    2)Just ticking the download play button will not let it work (Some games are protected [Mario 64 DS, Mario Kart]) HOWEVER, you can use the Card to flash any DS you want to Download Play with.

    3)Yeah... old Moonshell

    4) SuperMode is... freaking awesome!!!! You can activate cheats, like with AR, then turn them on/off IN GAME! Also, you can save a Guide to your SD card and bring it up during gameplay!!! (I did that with YuGiOh 2007 and it helped me get all the card numbers... so it's pretty cool) So SuperMode is TOTALLY worth it!

    5) I use that SD Card... it works perfectly!

    Your welcome... if I helped at all...

    wtf, DL play should be perfect, i think you are misinformed.

    4. it isn't really called "super mode" any more. all patching options are triggered before booting games in the menu such as cheats, guides, download play, direct to sd save. they are useful options that you should configure to ur preferences.

    Thanks guys! [​IMG]

    I don't think I should worry too much with the old Moonshell right? What incredible and must-have features could they have added in 1.71? [​IMG]

    But I'm a little worried about Wii connectivity... Now that Pokémon Battle Revolution is out, I would like to try it [​IMG] I haven't played Diamond because on my SC miniSD it was a bit slow (I think [​IMG] ) and I was also waiting for PBR...

    I still think of getting a SC DS One, but this thing on the Wii connectivity really worries me [​IMG]

    Let's hope someone will try it and post his/her results here [​IMG]

    new moonshell plays DPG3 version of DPG, and has a few improvements.

    SC one moonshell only plays DPG1/DPG2(?)

    DPG3 is better with faster seek i believe. If you want to use DPG1/2 you have to get the right encoding program (Older version of dpgtools or batchdpg).

    i recommend chucking the new moonshell on your cart if you get a supercard one. it's worth it.

    it is hoped they upgrade the menu soon!

    Hi there! i have a supercard ds one v1.0 so meh maybe i can help..

    1) no compatibility with pokemon battle revoluntion yet
    2) in the patcher menu of the supercard just check off "fix download play" and it should work flawlessly.
    3) old moonshell but meh converting movies took so long that i gave up using my supercard as a media player
    4) the cheat menu is now implemnted where u set up cheats and patching and stuff.. much easier than before

    5) OMG PLEASE!!! DO NOT BUY KINGMAX T_T I had one of those cheap memory cards by that brand.. they were slow to transfer games on and also the card was called "too slow" by the supercard ds one. (though it was still usable, it was just really slow =\) i decided to buy a 2gb Kingston japan microsd instead =)

    Hmm, I hope they add Wii compatibility soon [​IMG]

    Yeah, same as me. Too much time to convert, a standard anime episode needs 40 minutes... Waaaay too much [​IMG]


    As for Kingmax, I have one of them right now into my SC miniSD, and I've tested A LOT of miniSDs... Kingston, Transcend, Sandisk (the WORSE of them all) and Kingmax... Kingmax had the higher transfer speeds [​IMG]

    If I remember correctly, my Kingmax was faster than a Kingston Japan miniSD, so I think that you just got a cheap rebranded one [​IMG]

    Transferring 120mb it's a matter of seconds [​IMG] I've also asked my favourite reseller what was the faster memory he had, and he answered Kingmax.

    Strange [​IMG] We should do some speed tests [​IMG]

    Thanks for all your answers [​IMG]

    hmms well then i guess its possible that the minisd got labelled wrong or went to some kickass factory XD
    but biz387 is right... the supercard ds one uses microSD and so far ive heard nobody say that the kingmax microsd was faster than a kingston one.

    I was talking about tests with various miniSDs on my SC miniSD, weren't you reading? [​IMG]

    Strange, my miniSD is a lot faster than Kingston ones... I think I've got a kick-ass factory [​IMG]

    Thanks guys for the answers [​IMG]

    EDIT:

    Made tests with HD Tach... average 10mb/s and 1.1ms for random access.
    Seeing on the Wiki, a lot of Kingston microSDs 1GB made in Japan have the same speed (or even less) as my Kingmax miniSD.

    Not bad [​IMG]

    congrats =D

    well then if you ever do make that migration to the supercard ds one, try going for kingston =P but if your supercard minisd still works fine then meh i wouldnt ditch it just yet. I love the supercard team because they never leave behind their older models. although my supercard lite is just lying around now since i got the dsone, its nice to know its still "usable" =D

    Yeah, that's true. But I want something newer and Slot-1 for my DSLite [​IMG] Also, my miniSD one would remain in my DS Phat [​IMG]
