    Very nice post, let's hope the new users actually take the time to read it. It answers pretty much every regular question asked. Maybe you should put a link to the thread that tells how to check for a fake to save loads of "can you show me where the thread is" posts?

    Thank you for this interesting thread. I still have a question though: can the R4 play GBA-games.........? Is there some kind of emulator?

    @psychoblaster, or is it pychoblaster, or psycobalster.
    Nicely put, but you're gonna attract some flies with this thread! Anyone got any flyspray handy?

    "A question that asks about the R4 should NOT be answered by recommending the cycloDS." = What about recommending an Edge running a super uber custom-made cycloDS firmware hack? [​IMG]

    Great post, pity the reason for all the threads (which are annoying) is the person posting is either "me oriented" and thus unlikely to look for someone having already posted a reply elsewhere, because only their thread matters to them. Or the person is just a bit dim between the ears, and you will never succeed with them for just that reason.

    But again, great post.

    now that i think bout it some more psyco. the reason we all recommend the cyclo whenever noobs ask is that they think the R4 is the best thing out there since sliced bread so we just mention what the real king of flashcarts is now and be done with it

    From what I've read not entirely, although if one uses YSMenu then it is possible with a compatible expansion pack in the GBA slot (3 in 1 Expansion pack comes to mind).

    pychoblaster, you might want to update your post with the above line. Who knows when Dark Knight's flies will come around and buzzing you for not specifiying that [​IMG]

    No Maikel you're not a fly [​IMG]

    Just like Duke Nukem Forever? cool.

    Good sticky too. Too bad it will be ignored the most by those who would benefit from it.

    Actually, Maikel knows very well everything about GBA and NDS and flashcarts, this questions were just a joke (because it used to be the most used question before, "Can R4 play GBA games?").....
    You see winking smiley in the end!! [​IMG]

    There was a guy that said he ordered an R4 from R4USA.com and says it's a legit card.
    only reason why I put it on. XP
