    CycloDS Evolution Slot 1 Solution For NDS/NDSL​


    Hi everyone today im gonna be reviewing the CycloDS Evolution DS Slot 1 Flashcard.Many of you must of heard the name some may also have the card but is it really worth the $60 or is it all about packaging we find out today in Rockstar99's CycloDS Review.

    Part 1-Packaging
    You know anybody would be attracted to the cyclods when they see the packaging but when they go close and get a better look at the price tag most people run away.The cyclods comes in a tin box not too big.Its contents are a cyclods card and a microsd card reader with the cyclods evolution logo on it.The card reader isnt that great but does its job well.The packaging is good and you can keep the box at home to put stuff in.

    Part 2-Setting It Up
    So your done admiring the CycloDS and its wonderful box so now you must be wondering how do I set up the damn thing well its quite simple you just have to copy the latest firmware to your card and your done.
    You can downlaod it here

    Set up-9/10

    Part 3-The Menu
    If youve used flashcard before then when you tunr on the ds youll think something is wrong because it didnt autoboot this is one of mt favorite features the cyclods does not skip the ds menu making it easy to access download play and pictochat without taking the card out.After you tap the cyclods icon a loading screen wil popup aand then you will be taken to the cyclods menu if youve used the r4 or m3 simply the menu will look similar.There are 3 icons one for games and homebrew, one for multimedia and one for settings.When you press the first icon a fil browser will launch and will lauch any .nds file when selected.Not much to explain in the second icon it just launches moonshell.And finally the last icon lets you adjust varios setitngs in your cyclods

    maybe you can elaborate a little more on the RTS, ingame backlight, slow motion and etc?

    And also write about your inner struggle in deciding this over AK2, how you've been insomanic for days pondering over this [​IMG]

    And another thing cheat support i guess. And any other easter eggs and etc.

    Don't forget the Wii connectivity.

    And perhaps run through the review with a spell checker too?
