    1st comes CycloDS Evolution which has great download play support. Perhaps even all the games work fine. Second comes the G6DS Real with good download play support but not perfect. All the other current slot-1 flashcarts have terrible download play support unless flashme is installed on the ds who receives the data.

    DS-X has around the same download play support as G6, if the damn thing works at all...
    And flashing the receiving DS has no influence on the download support for most slot1 cards, with the exception of DS-Link and perhaps more.

    Cyclo wins 1st, then G6 and DS-X are the second and third best.

    IIRC G6DS Real does (this is why there was confusion with download play 100%, as some reviewers stated it was), and I think zatelli's (?) UFPEX review stated that sending to flashed DS' worked, though I don't think it was tested.

    flashing worked for download play for the R4 as well

    I guess 4th is R4. they didnt even try to get download play to work (i dont think). people just randomly found out that a few select games worked.

    That's untrue. 2 flashed DSL's with Flashme V8a No Autoboot - Download play still doesn't work. (I've tried non flashed to flashed too - still doesn't)

    I can also verify that flashing a NDS does not improve download compatibility for the R4. I didn't do the flashing for that but since I had an R4 I checked anyways.

    download play support is one of the reasons i got a cyclods evo. download play works great. if download play is a must, the cyclods evo is the cart to get.

    Exactly!!! I agree 100%

    I'd go with a CycloDS EVO, then a G6DS Real, then a R4DS.
