    Introduction

    The SupercardDSTwo is one of the most hyped flashcarts of all time. It takes the innovation of the supercard team and blends it with the concept of having an embedded CPU in a flashcart to do things no other flashcart can. In short the DSTwo can do GBA emulation, soon to come DIVX playback and SNES emulation, and much more. The SupercardDSTwo also features a menu very similar to that of AKAIO, possessing the ability to do things like copy/cut/paste/delete. On top of all this it also has the handy real time menu. Real Time Save, Real Time Guide, Real Time Cheat, Free Cheat, Slow Motion, and Soft Reset in one menu. Never again will you have to say: "Dangit it I really need to use RTS but I forgot to turn it on!"

    Thanks, in all honesty I made it because of your topic. I needed to have answer to a few questions and I looked at your topic, it did answer my question but I had to wade through 15 pages of other stuff (I didn't want to ask the same question twice by accident).

    Nice FAQ! There were a few things that I did not know about the DSTWO. [​IMG]

    Nice FAQ, covers most stuff, you'll probably have to update it when the Snes emu and the SDK come out [​IMG]

    Only DStwo firmware works with DStwo (with game loading)

    Nice FAQ, it's pretty useful to those looking to buy a DSTWO or those who don't know what to do with it after taking it out of the box.

    I just want to point out that you can also return to the plugin menu after going into the DS_GAME menu by pressing B a couple of times.

    There's also a newer version of the game_config.txt file which adds compatibility for some japanese roms.

    One little tip/bug that I think should be mentioned

    Under
    Q:How do I remove different plug-ins from the start up menu?
    there should be a note/warning that IF you have less than 5 plugins in the folder you'll end up with orange '?' icons with no names above them

    Well that's how it was for me anyways when I originally had my DSTwo (it didn't have the slot-1 or slot-2 boot plugins). I don't think it's a bug, it's just more of a minor annoyance.

    It looks like you can have more than 7 guides. I just tested it with 1-9 and you can scroll down past 7. I still haven't tried 0 yet though.

    Thanks, I'll tinker with it later to see if I can get more than 9.

    You can have more than 10 guides, it seems. When labeling a game file, it like this:

    "Tetris DS.01.txt"
    "Tetris DS.02.txt"
    "Tetris DS.03.txt"

    etc. I've only tested it with 12 so far, but it seems to be working just fine.

    It's also interesting to note that, if one of your text files is empty, DSTWO won't load it. It's not a bad thing, at all - but it's something worth noting. I'm going to try the .bmp images to see if it works with the .01 method. If it does, then I don't think we have a limit on our guides, which is awesome.

    Edit
    Ok, here's a guide on how to use images (with pictures!). Just did a quick write up:

    Wow amazing guide! This will surely help quite a few people with making their guides. If it's ok with you I'll add that to the FAQ.

    Of course. It can be found in Terminator02's Topic, as well.

    A couple of people have been asking on how to re-order the 'plugins' on other threads

    This is what I've been telling them
