    Hi There,

    New to this forum and have searched around a bit to read other threads. I have an 11 & 8 year old who have a 3DS (just bought, not the "new" version 3DS). They have a DSI as well and have an R4i card, which seemed at the time a lot easier to get my hands on.

    I would have gone for the R4i Gold (Deluxe or not) version only because we have the R4i with the DSi's, but I really wanted opinions if you think this is good or if there is anything else out there that is better, working wise, user friendly etc..

    Also, I have ordered about a month ago now 2 R4i 3DS Gold cards from R43ds.org. After making my purchase, they took my money right away, waiting 3 weeks, I sent them a message as my order status still says "awaiting shipment", did not hear anything. Then I searched the company and Im afraid with all the negative reviews, although there were some good reviews too, I may have been scammed :( That being said, I am looking for legit sites to order the cards from. I see a link on this page, looked them up and have also read about un authorized charges to peoples credit cards after they ordered? If anyone has ordered from them, or can suggest another site, how long did they take to arrive and what was your experience?

    Thank you in advance for all of your help and wisdom!!

    Flashcard takes 1-2 weeks of shipping, because they ship all from Asia. R4i 3DS wasnt a good choice cause there are so many clones of them and the ultimately is, that the card is not working. Best alternative is the Supercard DS Two. It can play GB, GBC, GBA, NES, SNES and DS games. It worth it because this card has much more quality and works well. But its a bit expensive as clone cards.

    Uhm its like a firmware, that allows you to install roms and play them. But its not as easy to set up.

    I just want a card to load the roms on, 3ds and older ds versions of games so my kids can play them. I'd prefer to download the roms not pay for games :)

    My kids have a 3DS, its not the New version that has just come out this year, its the older one. So yes, they want to play 3DS games, but I was hoping I could add the DS Roms on the card to so they can play older games as well.

    I don't mind paying for a flashcart, I mean not paying to purchase actual games, I'd rather download roms. All games on a card, one card in the machine, no games getting lost..

    Uhm.. 3DS games and older games are two different things. When your kids only want to play older games like DS, GBA etc. (NOT 3DS) you can buy the Supercard DS Two Flashcard. But when your kids want to play new games (3DS roms), you must buy another flashcard. But there are many thing that should be noted: Which firmware is the 3DS running? When its you can only use the Sky3DS flashcard but this flashcard is limited and cant run every game plus its a high venture to play with it online.

    Sky 3ds is the best way for 3ds, as it works with the latest firmware version, for ds roms r4i-sdhc.com has a new one that works on the latest one too, supercard ds two also works.

    how big of an sd card do you have? what system settings number is it? open the 3ds and look in settings.

    OK theres a whole bunch of clutter and you're getting nowhere @Jaylaur

    How old are your kids?
    What kind of 3DS do you have?
    What kind of games do you want to play?
    What firmware is the 3DS on?
    Are these kids tech savvy even slightly?
