    R4/M3/DSTT comparison chart

    Interesting part for me is that it says the R4 and the DSTT are made by the same manufacturer, that is to say the DSTT is not a replacement fro the R4 (or it would be the R4+ or something) but that the quality of the DSTT should be the same build quality of the R4.

    That chart is wrong. It says r4 does not support skin DIY, but it does. Also, it forgot to mention that older versions of r4s do have a spring.

    I don't actually know if anything in the chart is true [​IMG] it may not even be the same manuafacturer.

    By Skin DIY I assume they don't see changing 4 images (for the R4) as proper skinning, there are 42 different images to change to skin the DSTT, daunting? yes but certainly allowing for a lot more customisation.

    Also DSTT/TTDS is spring loading
    Depending on where you buy it you can get the expansion packs with it, (€19,45 euro DSTT with rumble, shipping included)
    As far as i know it doesn't load M3DS Real saves

    M3DS Real is Multi Language

    R4 and M3DS Real are not made by the same manufacturer, dunno about TTDS, but i don't think so

    Are you sure you are not confusing Manufacturer with Designer/Creator?

    IE. Manufacturer = the place where tha carts roll off the assembly line.

    The chart says that the R4 can only use R4 saves, but that the Real and the DSTT use the same save format as the R4. Also, their price for that cart + memory card is ridiculous.

    I am not advising anyone to buy from there, but it certainly generated discussion [​IMG]

    Isn't the R4 also multi language by way of different loaders? Or is the TT multi-language selectable from one loader?
