    Just got this email from romman. I've been waiting to hear this for a while.

    Judgind by the wholesale prices, the new SC will probably be priced reasonably. Guess my waiting has paid off [​IMG]

    Great news. I might get one next to my SCLR, if the price is reasonable.

    sounds good, but i wish another company would adopt the acekard goal of 100% compatabilty future proof, no patching (including onboard) but with their own style.

    I'd prefer gba emulation functionality over better compatibility any day of the week, i mean considering how close to full compatibility the previous supercards were, i think this particular feature should be a given.

    Don't like that he didn't mention anything about battery life.

    And why is everyone so excited about slot 1 cards anyway?

    * It's from the supercard team = decent support
    * It's matching up to everything the DS-X can do with a MicroSD slot (gameswise without flashy lights and OS)
    * It's forecast to be 3x cheaper than the DS-X (not including mSD card)
    * I don't think there has been a slot-1 solution yet with terrible battery life yet, but who knows :-P

    I can't wait to see how this will fare against EZ5 and M3DS slot 1 solutions...seems like with all these options, we're all in for a happy new year indeed [​IMG]

    I have been trying to decide on a slot 1 card, but since I am a happy supercar lite user, this may be the one for me.

    I've used a supercard from the very beginning when they first started playing DS roms on them. I've been waiting for a good slot 1 solution from them. I'll wait for the review on GBAtemp to see if its one of the best ones. If it gets a good review I'll get one.

    I bet it will have a fast memory speed and not lock on VaniaPor, unlike the attrocious DS-X Disco Dude 9.5 mini cart.


    I will stick to the proven manufacturers like SC and M3/G6

    And again, that tricky statement: "you don't need to use a software client, but if you use it you'll get better results". We'll see what that really means.

    It means that you can use clean roms in a drag and drop fashion. OR, if you want to trim the roms, or use reset functions, you can run it through the patcher. [​IMG]

    that's funny I just went back to the original post to this thread, and I don't see where it say that anywhere.

    If youre gonna quote something, get it right.

    What it does say is:

    "There is a SuperCard DS software, you do not need to use it. But if you use the software, SuperCard DS can support more powerful function, such as RESET, infinity save space etc ."

    all this means is that if you want extra features like soft reset, more save slots than the game usually allows, rumble in games that didn't have to begin with (assuming youre using a SCLR in the Slot2), then youre gonna have to patch the rom. I think its great theyre giving us the option, because I didn't want to lose the ability to soft reset back the SC menu without needing to turn my DS off-on. I use that feature now on my SCL, and I;m excited that it will continue to be available. I asked once on the DS-X forums if their cart could do that and the reply was more or less "Nope. Deal."

    Supercard has always done a good job for me so far, so I'll probably end up buying 2 or 3 of these (I'm not the only one in my house that uses a DS - I'm just the only one with the $$ [​IMG] )
