    Hi everyone, the current flashcart is down below in the picture. I bought this last year sometime, and would like to buy a new one. The main use would be to play nds backups on my 3DS consoles, although previously when using it there is quite some lag in-game on things such as BW etc. What would people recommend? Ideally with less lag and more up-time play like an actual cart.


    Thanks for your time :) links appreciated, probably will buy from nds-card.com being GBATemps sponsor.

    I ended up going with this. It runs just as well as a DS cart does, with little to no lag. And if you have CFW, you can use the Forwarders thing by Robz8 that installs the game icon onto your Home Menu and it will launch that game when you select the icon and the card inserted.

    I updated my previous post with info on the DS Forwarders by Robz8, which works with that card.

    I can guarantee that it works with the card I bought. Just be sure to use the R4iDSN/R4i Gold RTS pack.

    If it's not against the rules, I can PM you the kernel zip or if this also isn't against the rules, you can get it from here. You want to download Wood R4 v1.64.

    I'll probably buy it sometime next week just so I can play older games again
