Ok, so I ordered a R4 DS from DX on October 7th, four days ago. I'm anxious so it feels like it's taking FOREVER to get here D: But enough about that, I already know the basics of it because my friend showed me it about a week ago and explained it a bit. I also saw some YouTube vids, but I have about 3 ultimate questions I don't get. 1) Does it matter at all which MicroSD card you use? Everyone keeps saying that SanDisk saves faster..but is that it? Who cares about that :0 Also I heard that the Japanese Kingston > Taiwan [US] Kingston. I have a 1gb Taiwan and I dunno if I should buy another Japanese one..what's the difference? 2) The new R4 design, without the spring..how does that work? I'm crossing my fingers to get it shipped to me, as I don't want any problems in the future. Just wondering how it stays in though. Does it load from the side or something? Did anyone get one? :0 3) Do you get a Friend Code if you download say, a game? Like, a working one..that you can play with? Also, does it stick with the SAV file so that if I delete the game itself I can still play it later? That's all ^__^ Thanks to those who answer.
