    that CYCLODS is a FAKE SuperCard !!! (we're talking about slot-2 here). Took them long enough, didn't it? This is going to be interesting - seeing as both teams are established brands, have websites/forums etc. Thanks to Blackhawk on the CycloDS forums for the heads up!

    Hahaha, that's the SC team for ya. Funny thing is you can install the SC firmware on the CycloDS units without any problems [​IMG].

    Oh, what happens when you try a newer version? I'm sure someone could hack it to get it to work (if they could really be bothered). I'm deciding on whether to get a SC Lite or CycloDS Micro to go w/ my CycloEvo. I have an M3 Lite but it doesn't bloody fit properly in my DSL [​IMG]

    Would you recommend the cycloDS micro? Is it hard to plug/unplug from the DSL? Does it really stick out of the DSL?

    p.s. If you don't have fingernails which are at least a little bit long removing the CycloDS lite can be a pain, same as with the SC-lite however the cyclo is slightly less thick so it requires a little less force to remove.

    SuperCard and CycloDS probably had a contract:

    SuperCard: You can copy our cart until you make a new one.
    CycloDS: What happens when we do.
    SuperCard: Oh nothing...

    *Several months later*
    SuperCard: CycloDS are FAKES!

    I guess the SC team saw how successful the CycloEVO is now compared to their own card... and the only way to kill cycloDS EVO sales are to do what... yeap the obvious... bring out the "FAKES". SC/M3/R4 anyone of these... copied something from somewhere... can't jsut go off telling people this brand is a fake because "copied" it first.

    I don't own a CycloDS, but seems to me that the SC team is feeling kinda down because of the CycloDS EVO's success over their own card suppose to be a super card but rather ended up a average card.

    Just seems like plain jealousy to me...

    Supercard forget to watch at the Ewin2 (second generation) [​IMG], same software/same hardware

    Completely agree on that [​IMG]!

    yeh but who the hell would want an old tech sd based card dressed up in more modern sd-micro (transflash) clothing ???

    how much is that gonna piss you off when you want to play POR or the first Vania, Tony Hawks ect... and the damn thing is too slow to handle it.... it's a complete waste of time... someone call Dr.Who and his Tardis a breach of the space time continium has occured.

    Cyclo has lost a lot of credability in my eyes.

    Sorry... you are making absolutely no sense whatsoever! The CycloDS Micro is based on the SC Lite (which itself is microSD based). As for CycloDS Mini and others, they are based on the SC analogues too. Finally, the CycloDS Evo is a completely original new product... I really have no idea what you are bitching about, I suspect you dont' either!

    usually it's kind of a good idea (and maybe even polite) to look at the whole thread before posting, as I suspect you have't looked at the link already provided properly ... http://eng.supercard.cn/fake_cyclo.htm here it is in case you feel like looking at information before posting next time

    we all know what cart we are talking about, no need for the pedantics

    The Cyclo is a clone, not a fake, so Supercard has no standing to do this. Not that the Slot-2 Cyclos are any good anyway, but they don't try to trick you into thinking the product is something it is not.

    thats funny, because i can't see "this cart runs on others makers software, and we pay them nothing" and "this cart has an aged sd system ripped off elsewhere and will consequently not match the speeds of newer flash carts" and "this cart has a future about as bright as the dark side of the moon" labels anywhere on it ???? maybe someone could do a close up scan of the box
