That was not a bug it was anti piracy protection and was also in black/white not just the second games
I mean it's kind of a bug but more in the flashcard kernel. According to my Ace3DS X tests the card has this bug/issue which should be mentioned if the review states "As I’ve read that some games like Pokemon White 2 don’t work, I’ve tried it and I can confirm they work with the latest kernel update.".

I'll check it. Thanks for warning about it.

I've not tried it yet without patches, but there is a patched version of that backup. So there's no problem about this game.
Yeah, sure there is a patched version. But you can't say that a game is compatible if it needs a patch. That way you could say that cards from 2007 which require a patch for every game have an excelent compatibility.

Yes, from the official site, it says the Ace3ds X can be switched between DS and NTRboot modes easily by only pushing a button on the card of the card. However, due to its price and shipment, I still can't decide Ace3ds X and R4I B9S, which to choose in 3ds-flashcard site. The site gets R4I B9S in USA but not ACE3DS X.

You could try in other stores.
I've listed some stores in which it is a bit cheaper.

Personally, I've only bought once in digibayz paying through PayPal and everything went well. In any case, all those stores must be reliable.

I think having ntrboot loader preflashed and having a switch to change the mode is really worth it.
Thanks, the 3ds-flashcard is also accepting paypal and credit card payment and I already e-mailed them to get a discount, save 5 dollars, it's enough for me. Because I bought from them ever, currently don't want to change.

By any chance, has anyone who has used this card also have a R4i Gold Plus? Have been considering getting either that or this, but I can't find any decent reviews from people who have used both.

Well i bought a N2DSXL today with 11.4 Firm on it, my AK2i and R4Ultra don't work on it, so i ordered this card for NTRboot :)
They really should have worked. You should have tried to troubleshoot instead of wasting money.
Out of all 6 3ds models. The new2ds is probably the trickiest. You have to be patient and keep trying.

The r4i gold plus is a better cart, but its a bit harder to get to the switch. i got the ace3ds X for free, so... :)

I think it's more that both cards are broken i think, they don't work descent in my other systems, even my older DSi models, the used to work perfect, but now no system recognizes the cards, so no way to get ntrboot on it even.
and not really wasted, was looking for a new card to play old NDS games on my 3Ds systems anyway but thanks for the headsup :)

    Kinda makes me sad everyone is believing in emulation gives less of a reason for consoles to exist
    Gift
  • T @ trimesh:
    I appreciate the convenience of emulation - but at the same time there is a feeling you get from using original hardware that's hard to match.

    Some things (like Super Famicom games) just feel right when you play them using the original hardware and a CRT

    Not so sure about that - the tendency for "graphics uber alles" tends to lead to very high power consumption

    If you look at what's now portability graphics are catching up to console quality

    Nintendy is a huge example of not everyone caring about powerful specs most that do will be hardcore PC players anyway

    The thing is that the IATA rules impose a pretty hard limit of 100Wh on battery sizes for lithium batteries - and it doesn't look like Li is going away soon
    Gift
  • T @ trimesh:
    So if you want (say) 4 hours of runtime you need a maximum system-level power consumption of 25W

    Yeah but we already have AAA titles looking fine on tablet form 1080p displays

    For reference, the PS5 is rated at 350W and the Xbox series X at 275W - and that's console only, without any display
