    Nice find. Is the SC DSTWO+ worth it? Never used a SC product.

    My friend has one and says that that its a better SCDS2 plus GW emulation. GW emulation works 100%. He said that the emus are better on the SCDS2+. Even Star Fox on the SNES runs well. Since the SCDS2+ is cheaper, I would go with it. All the functions of a beefed up SCDS2 and a GW card in one. I can't wait to get the one I won in the pumpkin carving contest.

    In the GW_SIMULATOR_V1.03.zip file, there is a readme.txt that says:
    Also, there is a directory called "_dstwoplug". In it, there are 3 files: GW_SIMULATOR.bmp (a GW icon image), GW_SIMULATOR.ini (opening it in a text editor, it seems to be an initialization file for the DSTWO card that tells it to load the GW_SIMULATOR.bmp and some other stuff?), and GW_SIMULATOR.plg (the plugin file). Interesting, huh?


    Edit - The DSTwo Plugin wiki page gives more insight on the files.

    I have never owned Gateway but I do know SuperCard does support their products. I bought because it was $10 less than GW and was supposed to have the same functionality and then some.They seem to have a good reputation.

    The only experience I have with flashcarts is way back with the DS Lite. I have a DSTT and it was basically a plug and play deal. This supercard is pretty finicky so far, but it might be the cheap mSD card I am using. When I have time I will go grab a decent one and if no one has gave a proper review I will post one.

    Yeah I snooped around the files a bit too, seems like the plugins are following the same basic scheme as the other plugins for the EOS firmware or whatever you want to call it. The reason I was looking around the site was because I was hoping to find a beta or some shit because I am having a hard time getting the backups to load. I know its not the files cuz I dumped them myself and they were fine. So I thought maybe I could find something that might improve things. I dont want to say anything bad about the card on here because for one, I havent contacted them yet and I wanna play around a bit more (Try a different mSD card) and also because I dont think theres anything wrong with the card, I think things will improve with software updates and they seem to be on the ball that way.

    If youre planning on getting a flashcard for somebody that isnt into the scene (or hacking their toys) I recommend you get him Sky3ds if its just for playing backups. I dont have personal experience, but word on the streets is you just plug in and play back ups. You pay for ease of use bro.

    Its the software you for the new SuperCard DStwo Plus flashcart. The SuperCard has the functionality of the Gateway card and a DS mode flashcart in one.

    I am having a hard time getting my .3ds Back-Ups to load consistently. I think it may be due to a cheap SD card though. Did your friend say anything like that? Was that a problem with an actual Gateway card as well? I never owned one.

    Bortz and/or I will be doing a review of the cart soon. The supply ran low before we got our hands on one. But it'll be ready as soon as possible!

    i can't believe they didn't send out review units especially to you guys
    seems odd

    funny how they show the GW installer
    and not other entry for N3ds or newer FW's
    i assume the review will feature N3ds testing too
    using different entry points

    I have N3DS and I thought it was funny how they don't mention anything about needing anything else to get the card working on your device. There's literally no documentation on the site specific to the Dstwo Plus. They do point you in the right direction (they link to the gateway manual and to there own supercard dstwo quickstart Guide.) When I bought it I assumed it would be more like using the ds mode cards. I should've known better I guess, since I had rxtools etc on my old DS. There would be a steep learning curve for somebody fresh off the street with this product. At least until someone writes a good English manual. I'm not complaining about it, I don't care. This is what I do for fun, (hack my shit) so I'm not at all disappointed and I'll plug away along with everyone else (including the supercard dev's I guess) until I have it ticking along like a rolex. Then I'll put it in a drawer and find a new toy to do something that it wasn't made to do.

    The plugin itself should, but you could not use the functionality of the plugin on a 3DS with sysNAND > 9.2.

    Curious to know if the cart is worth buying just for the enhanced emulation abilities.

    I have no need for the Gateway function and already have a regular DSTwo.
