    Thinking of upgrading from R4DS 2Gb & SuperCard Lite 2Gb to DSTT with Easy Flash 3 in 1 with 8 or 4Gb.

    Is that a good idea from a NDS & GBA compatibility stand point?


    Edit: Also is the M3 Lite better than the EF3N1.

    you should get an acekard2
    as there are chances that you will recive a fake one an if you do you cant use future updates
    and the acekard 2 seem to have more functions open source and same nearly same price

    The Acekard 2 is better than the DSTT for most users.

    If you don't care about price, you might look into the CycloDS, but it's a lot more expensive and is probably only worth it if you're really keen on game state dumps.

    So AceKard 2 4Gb and Supercard 2Gb or AceKard 2 8Gb and EZ Flash 3 in1.

    Will the SCL run most GBA games through A2 or will it have limited functionality like the R4.

    Will my R4 games and saves still work or will I have to start over

    Thanks for the previous help.

    I'd recommend the EZFlash 3-in-1 for use with the Acekard 2. It has direct support from the menu (you can click on a GBA game in the menu and it will take care of the rest for you) so no need to use a separate loader like GBA ExpLoader.

    The Acekard 2 and DSTT use the same save file format. I believe it's also the same format as the R4, but if not there's an online save file converter that you can use.

    You'll need to rename your saves from "filename.sav" to "filename.nds.sav" to use them with the official Acekard 2 firmware.

    With the use of a home brew emulator it can
    I recommend lameboy and SNEmulDSv06a.
    I have uploaded them to my geocities account.
    lameboy
    SNEmulDSv06a
    Courtesy of download goes to QJ.net

    SNEmulDSv06a is made by Archeide (with additional credits inside readme)
    lameboy v.10 is made by Nukti

    This is just a mirror

    Somebody try this out on their card and see if it works!!
