    Hey,

    So I finally went out and shelled out for a Cyclo. I love it absolutely fantastic. The problem is I'm using my Micro SD from my Cell Phone which is only 32 MB. Are there any small sized good games? The only one I've found so far is Dodgeball. Let me know!

    Right about...here.
    The only game that I can think of that's 16 MB is Touch Detective I think. Other than that, most of the short games are 32 MB so...I dunno. You'll just have to get a larger SD or, if you've already ordered one, then wait. >_>

    A lot of games fall under 2 megs if you trim them. Though I must ask..why? You can get 2 gigabyte MicroSD cards for around 10$ and under now a days.

    Well my $0.95 (after Google Checkout) is coming in a day or so.

    What's this trimming feature?

    Canader.
    When you take the dummy data off a ROM.
    EX: Summon Night 2 has 60+MB of dummy data.
    I use Tokyo Trim and Rominator.

    I found rominator, but does it remove wifi capabilities?

    Also where can I download Tokyo Trim? When I search I get a link to the history of Hentai or something O.o

    Also I heard that some packaged USB Micro Readers corrupt the card. Does the one packaged with the cyclods corrupt SD Cards?

    Trauma Center is about 12 MB trimmed.

    Advance Wars DS is about 28 or so trimmed.

    Etrian Odyssey is 16 MB, Diddy Kong Racing and Mario Kart are 24 each, Puzzle Quest is about 15, Pic Pix and Clubhouse Games are 10 each and Scurge Hive is 16.

    There's quite a few good games that will fit.

    About the USB Reader, I haven't had any problems with mine.

    You can get even a 1GB card for under 5 dollars at most normal stores in your area. (microSD are seriously awesomely cheap these days!)

    Yes, I read that, but what I meant was that it costs near nothing to go grab one right now until his (Probably large like 4gb+) one arrives.

    Barnyard Blast is a fun game and well, an underdog/under rated game, it has an old school Castlevania feel with some decent graphics and the game is funny, it doesn't take itself seriously and makes fun of itself.

    Trauma Center and Worms: Open Warfare, is your best bet in small sized good games; otherwise I recommend you buy a higher capacity Mini SD (or switch to an AceKard/M3/R4 since they use cheap mirco sds [​IMG] )
