    Wow, probably the first EVER flashcart developer that's even aware of the DSi right now, as other flashcart companies aren't giving a damn about it. To quote

So while we still have our DS lites, how about working more on that GUI redesign and anything else for Slot 1? Or if that idea doesn't work, how about the idea of having two firmwares for DSi and DS/DS Lite users?
    As other people have said, the DSi is not due outside of Japan until well into next year. Even when it has been released worldwide, there will still be many millions of people who have the older generation units, and we have no plans to ever forget about these people. Furthermore, there is no point speculating on "two firmwares" or anything else relating to the DSi until it has actually been released to the public. At the current point in time, not enough is known.

    Well, other flashcard teams haven't probably responded to this issue because the issue doesn't REALLY EXISTS YET.
    I believe that almost every other team is aware of the DSi, but there wasn't the need to answer questions like that.

    For example, a lot of people gave the same exact answer to lots of similiar questions here [​IMG]

    Until the DSi is released, talking about "implementing features" or "thinking about DSi" is totally useless... As far as we know, Flashcards could even not work on it [​IMG]
    So... let's wait and see.

    There will not be a GBA emulator, not even on the DSi, it may have mmore ram but it doesn't have the processing power to handle GBA emulation.

    I'm pretty sure that they are aware of the DSi.
    It's just that they probably don't want to act like idiots trying to guess about something they know nothing about.

    exactly what told a few people in another thread saying the DSi would be able to emulate the GBA because of extra ram [​IMG]

    I guess that would make life easier for Team Cyclops or any other flash card developer... With extra ram, no need for slot 2. You just have to wait until it comes out.

    We must wait until the DSi is released.
    We can do nothing more.

    I'm sure that Nintendos cooked up something extra special for their DSi and that dev teams wont waste too much team cracking it.

    I've every confidence that the DSi will be cracked--but I see no reason for us to worry about it. I dont have any intention of importing one just so I can play my DS games on a bigger screen.

    Nope, my next handheld will hopefully be a GP2x Wiz--then an ASUS PC for school and personal use. So far I have no real reason to buy a DSi and I dont see any reason in worrying the various Dev teams about the matter.
