I want to know whether I should replace my R4 with a Cyclone DS. What's better on a Cyclone? Does it have more features? Is it more durable? Please respond I need to know the benefits of getting a Cyclone and whether I should.
The CycloDS has many advantages over the R4DS
It has RTS (saving/loading at any time), RTG (Guide while ingame),...
And most important: it still has a supporting team (which the R4 hasn't), so it will be updated.
I really recommend you to buy a Cyclo (its the best card out now, if you do not have a DSi)
awesome thanks you guys, but does the r4 really not have a rtc? cuz ive been playing rtc games for a while and the time worked great. and also my brother told me that DSdoom does not work on cyclone, is that true? not many people know of DSdoom so its k if u dont know
The CycloDS is considered one of the best flashcarts available for the DS. What it has over an R4 is:
Real Time Save - Save anywhere, at any time in a game.
Better cheat code support.
An in-game text reader - You can copy and paste a text file (like a walkthrough) into the Cyclo and access it during the game.
Slow Motion - Mostly useless feature, but allows you to run a game in slow motion to make it easier.
Still supported by its team - The R4 has been dead for a long time now.
If you have a slot2 3in1 card, you can play GBA games without extra patching.
The firmware is actually flashed to the card as opposed to being just a loader installed on the microSD.
Supports SDHC microSD's. R4's only support up to 2gig microSD's.
I myself went from an R4DS to a CycloDS and have been very happy with it.
Here is the link to Team Cyclops....the maker of the CycloDS: http://www.teamcyclops.com/
Unfortunately, their forums are down at the moment. They are working to fix it, but you can access the CycloDS part of the site to read the carts manual.
