    The Box looks so professional compared to the one for Acekard 2i, M3i Zero and EZflash Vplus.

    The DSONE box looked good too

    What I mean is that when I play games on my DS, I want to experience the game like it was meant to be played. In other words, I don't want save states, slowdown, in-game walkthrough, multithread, etc. To use those features, I'd rather just play the game on my PC on an emulator, taking advantage of advanced graphic filters, enhanced speaker sound, playing on a full-featured controller... etc.

    In that sense, AKAIO gives me 100% compatibility and offers me the only things I really need, which are soft reset and a very sleek interface.

    Seriously gonna wait till a team that is little a less "corny" with a much sleeker interface comes along using the same technology. Despite the appeal of it being the only cart available with its features, SC Team will never suck me in again (unless it's a gift, of course [​IMG] ).

    Maybe when GBA, SNES and even NES, why not!, are working correctly, then id think on buying it, only a crazy guy would buy this as it is right now...

    Well, only a crazy guy wouldn't buy it while it was offered for only $30! HA!

    Any chance checking if the Megaman Battle Network games work with no slow-downs?
    That was the only reason I actually bought it - playing this series all over again :>

    Update:

    I've just been told of a very exciting feature that the DSTWO provides that has not yet been announced.

    Here is an updated feature list:

    Note the last feature. Apparently the DSTWO is able to over come any kind of anti-piracy patch that may appear in future titles. Utilizing the CPU, I'm told the DSTWO can pass through and bypass any anti-piracy measures which is the first cart to do so. They say the games will never need to be patched to run.

    They tell me that the DSTWO CPU can emulate the original cartridge without patches, whilst others flash cart need a patch.

    Anyone else deterred by the fact that GBA emulation kills the battery life of the DS? 4 hours was it? I'll stick to my actual GBASP for now (although I did preorder for SNES feature, if it ever comes).

    I don't believe the compatibility will be perfect (let's face it, they told that when the R4 came out...), but if they use the CPU it's interesting [​IMG]

    Thanks for the preview. I can't wait for my unit to arrive. Hopefully they'll ship out the hardware soon, and hopefully they'll keep on improving their software. With so many features there's probably a lot that can be improved. But hey, this is the Supercard Team, so we'll probably not be disappointed.

    Are you sure they're talking about game AP and not flashcart AP? The way they worded it, specifically saying "iDS Anti Piracy", it sounds like they've fixed it so that the SCDS2 can't be blocked by a DSi firmware update like other flashcarts.

    I could have used this when I had a dsi, yet it would be difficult to play max payne on the emulator ( it doesn't emulate well on any system really) I mean the game even slow down on the gba. Some games are hard to emulate.

    the most tuned flashcart offering everything that a person would find in other carts
    the bypassing all types of AP is kinda strange but hopefully it will not be wrong
