    In response to the Supercard DS One team releasing Real Time Save, Team Cyclops have decided to release their current developmental version of it in the next few days.

    It was posted on the Team Cyclops forums here.

    It's not perfect but they will continue to work on it.

    This makes me happy!

    the greyed out option for this in the menu is such a tease, I'm glad they are working on implementing it.

    Just give them a few more days and they will have stolen Supercards work completely.

    Hmmm, cyclo have a habit of 'borrowing' supercard work.

    Umm, CycloDS miniSD was bought from SuperCard ... RTS on the other hand is using their own engine.

    This is interesting, because many of TC's proposed features have come more or less after Supercard. Recently, there was something on the Supercard forums about a CycloDS sold inside a supercard shell. Interesting, since the CycloDS Evo is rarer and more expensive than the SCone.

    edit; well I can't shake the feeling that they are somehow connected (perhaps sharing their results)

    No I believe the cloned cart you are refering to is the old Slot 2 one (MicroSD), the Slot 1 cart is completely their own work, the specs of the cart and chip are completely different.

    There is nothing on the SC website about cloned TC Slot 1 carts, take a look yourself.

    There's no honor amongst thieves. Even if they stole all the code, I'll keep using it because of their professional looking firmware. [​IMG]

    Er...They've had save states working in developmental builds for several months now. Also the first card with SDHC, download play, in-game stuff...they are not in any way ripping the SupercardDS One code....if anything, it's the other way around.

    Supercard wouldn't say that cyclops slot two's were fake if they were in a business contract.

    They wouldn't? Not even if Team Cyclops had decided to stop buying their products wholesale from Supercard and instead design and market their own slot-1 card which was getting a lot more attention at the time than the Supercard Team's slot-1 card?

    I'm not saying I know for sure that Team Cyclops had a deal with Supercard to sell a clone of their slot-2 carts, but it doesn't seem unlikely to me.

    If the CycloDS carts were unlicensed clones, why did Supercard not say something sooner? Why did they wait until the CycloDS Evolution (which is not a clone) came out?

    In response to the above post, I have a supercard lite clone that I would guess is unlicensed. It frankly sucks and I believe it uses an old SC SD firmware instead of the lite firmware, even though it is sized for the DS lite slot-2.

    The CycloDS, counterfeit Supercard SD, and my card called a TWSCL all have different hardware.

    I just checked and this card has not been mentioned on the Supercard site as being a clone. I really don't know what the deal is. My gut feeling is that counterfeiting is so common in China that they didn't bother to acknowledge it until they gained some momentum.

    Once upon a time the first Supercard was just a clone ... like the superkey.

    Superkey/pascard3 came out the same time and were made in the same factory with just a different sticker.

    @RTS on Evo...

    How come it's taking so long ?

    Having trouble ripping the SC code ?

    What has happened to the 'Master' of software and features?...meh

    QFT. And they're still selling the cloned-supercard CycloDS Slot-2. Not a good thing to do [​IMG]
