    Hi,

    What cart do you guys recommend to get to use with a 3DS to run DS games?

    Seems quite a few are coming out now that will work with the 3DS but just not sure which is the best one.

    Thanks

    Most work.
    Supercard DS2.
    Acekard2i if you have a tight budget.

    SuperCard DSTWO can run GBA games.

    AceKard 2i is cheap.


    Take your pick.

    Cheers guys.

    Are they all pretty easy to setup? (just have the latest firmware and off you go?).

    Depends. Do you have an older DS model you can use to update your flash cart if needed?

    If it needs an update to run on the 3DS, you might not be able to use it on the 3DS to update it for the 3DS.

    I'm still trying to figure out if I did something "wrong." I was able to put the latest DStwo files on the microSD, load it up in the cart on the 3DS, perform the update and use the card as normal.

    Are there certain situations, like this, where you don't need a regular DS or am I missing something?

    The Supercard DSTwo can usually update itself without a need for the DS to actually boot it, since it uses it's onboard CPU for some stuff, so all it needs is for the DS model to send it some power, which it can use to update itself.

    It's "normal" carts that often need an older DS to apply the update.

    I'd say SCDSTWO... If you can't update it, ask a friend to do it for you! Or go to a game store?

    Can the Supercard DSTWO brick the 3DS? I don't mean by using a flashcard but some people say that it blows the fuse on the DS Lite so can it happen to the 3DS?

    I used this site http://www.cheapr4i.com
    Last week to order a Acecard2i. It's not the cheapest but it came in 2 days and it had already been updated to the 3DS firmware so was just a plug and play job!
    If you have any questions feel free to PM me [​IMG]
    Oh and I ment to add. I previously ordered one from eachgame.com and it was a clone, but the one I got from here is definitely the real deal.
