So hey there.

I bought an R4 card just about a year, maybe two ago. Rather than the card I wanted, I got this one, which has worked admirably now for quite a while. TTMenu salvages it, and so far the only game I want to play that I can't play seems to be Lufia DS. WoodR4 doesn't seem to work due to lacking SDHC support or some such, and I've accepted the fate that came with a cloned R4.

Not being able to play Lufia DS isn't entirely a new reason to buy a new card to me, but as I perused the internet I realise that R4igold.cn no longer exists. Dommage.

Is the R4igold.cn card still salvagable at this point in time, or would it be a good time to look towards a new card purchase? I might wait for March when the 3DS is out and hope that thing gets flashcarted soon enough (and has compatibility with NDS games!), but I'd like to explore options regardless.

Well, I also bought an R4i Gold from www.r4igold.cn , and no, it's not dead.
Well, you could try to use the 1.17a12 TTDS, that's what I did.
It doesn't runs super scribblenauts though.

Buying a new flashcart wouldn't be such a bad decision.
You can get a regular, Wood R4 compatible R4DS from Shoptemp for $6, $13 with 2gb memory.

Or you can just get an Acekard 2i for $15 and keep using your SDHC card in it.

They're both great choices, Wood R4 and AKAIO firmware can play pretty much anything that's current.

Edit: According to http://www.linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/, the R4igold.cn flashcart updated 2 months ago, you can also download its firmware from there.
I'd still suggest the replacement flashcart though.

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer

  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
