    I'm currently on a DS Lite and I figured its time for an upgrade. So I'm looking to buy a DSi XL (HUGE ASS SCREEN [​IMG]) and a SuperCard 2. I want to spend somewhere around $150 (no more than $165)

    I want to keep my DS Lite as I have modded it to be controlled by a SNES controller via slot 2.

    I wish we could see that mod, sounds awesome. [​IMG]
    I have been trying to learn how to interface with the Slot-2 and using PAlib; still no luck at actually calling [reading/writing] the actual hardware might be using a logic analyzer to test if this runs.

    Good modding and gaming. [​IMG]

    So I managed to snatch a DSi XL on ebay for $164.50 new and free shipping, which I would say is a good $50 cheaper than buying one at the store considering I would have to pay for sales tax.

    Now I'm debating whether I should get the Acekard 2i or SuperCardTWO

    If you want a lot of neat features, get the SuperCard DSTwo.


    If you want really cheap, really reliable service and some homebrew, get the AceKard 2i.

    um, so how do you use shoulder buttons? and wouldn't it be a hassle to have to reach over to the touch screen?

    Yep. I wasn't trying to be rude if you took it that way. [:

    See the bumps on the top near the edges?

    Edit: To the OP I would like to see your mod. Seems interesting!

    Any chance anybody can help me? I also wish to upgrade but I am willing to offer these.

    DSi
    Screen Protector
    R4i Gold
    Soft Skin
    Stylus'

    I have been trying to sell that bundle for months now. I want to sell it more than ever so I can get my hands on a DSi XL. If anybody knows a place or can help me out or wants to buy this bundle then contact me.
