    CycloDS Evolution

    Product Overview

    CycloDS Evolution is a multi-functional Micro SD adapter for NDS and NDS Lite (Slot 1) which allows you to play games, listen to MP3's, view images, read e-books and enjoy the vast collection of homebrew applications for NDS. You can also take advantage of the inbuilt cheat code system to enjoy more freedom with your favourite games.

    CycloDS Evolution is the world’s most advanced Media Enhancer for NDS Lite and NDS. Boasting superior functionality, European design and quality components, CycloDS Evolution is unparalleled in its field.

    The unique enhanced mode offers powerful, unique features during game play which are activated through an in-game menu. These features include in-game LCD brightness adjustment, SlowMotion mode and in-game reset. The cheat code engine is directly compatible with Action Replay codes and CycloDS Evolution comes bundled with cheat codes for over 300 games so you can get started right away without any fuss.

    CycloDS Evolution’s inbuilt OS can run commercial ROM’s and homebrew software without the need for any patching on the users part. ROM loading is fast and trouble free, simply browse to the game you want to play and tap to execute. You don’t even need to apply DLDI patches to your homebrew software; CycloDS Evolution takes care of this for you with its automatic DLDI patching feature.

    Evolution loads media from MicroSD cards, which means you’re free to buy more memory at any time, never constrained by the boundaries of onboard flash memory. Transferring games and homebrew software is simple using the supplied MicroSD USB reader. Simply connect to your PC and drag & drop the desired files onto your MicroSD card.

    Listen to MP3’s, watch videos or even read e-books via Moonshell. The Moonshell multimedia application will maximize the versatility of your handheld console.

    The CycloDS Evolution GUI was designed with user friendliness in mind and can be operated exclusively with the stylus if desired. Skinning is supported which means you’ll always have a fresh view of our product at your fingertips. The user interface is multi-lingual, currently supporting the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Spanish, Latin American Spanish and Portuguese.

    Game sharing is painless with CycloDS Evolution. Unlike most other devices on the market, CycloDS Evolution supports single card download play even with trouble games such as Mario Kart DS and New Super Mario Bros.

    CycloDS Evolution comes from the creators of the world renowned CycloWiz - the first ever upgradeable Wii modchip. We surprised many by doing things the critics thought impossible, now we’re back on DS for more firsts.

    ..Wow. I like the feature where you can change brightness in game and make it slow motion. I really wish my M3/R4 did it.

    Chances are it won't work well [​IMG]

    If it does, we'll see how far this product goes [​IMG]

    The sticker is corny. The 3rd guy in the line looks retarded (crotch area)

    @4saken: He's not retarded, it's just that the guy in front of him is giving him a massive hard-on.

    Waaiit... How can slow motion and multiplayer go together? You'll lose sync and disconnect..
    If everything they stated is true, then could be one of the best, and easy to switch from R4 too... (possibly with some .sav hex editing)

    Prove it works 100% with download play, and that it works with the ez 3-in-1 and I'll buy it.

    theoretically 3-in-1 is compatible with all of the slot-1's now.

    but yeah, i want proof that download play works.

    You know...That Cyclops team....They're THE scum.

    Their slot-2 solutions are clones of Supercard ones, and I mean it, complete knock-offs. I wonder where they stole this concept for slot-1. R4? SCONE? EZV?

    All is fair when you're talking about devices whose primary purpose is piracy [​IMG]
    However, judging from the features it doesn't look like a "ripoff" of another product. We shall see eventually in any case.

    Remember, flash cart fanboyism is not cool.

    Unfortunately so - thats why we need everyone with an interest in it to email/post on their forums to get them to include it as a universal cheat.

    Anyway, back to cyclo. The features do indeed look good.
