you can play online without worrying about headers

then again, I don't know what Ninty's been doing with the headerbanthings

oops, read your question wrong. Convenience is a big one: if you have a bunch of carts, you'll only need to carry one around

personally i would suggest just dumping them and storing them as .3dz on your gateway card.....but if you dont mind using the proper carts classic mode is all you need

im installing emunand right now will using classic mode mess with the save game I already have and can I also play this game with my orginal save with out turning gateway on or do I have to do the exploit then go into classic mode for now on. right now I only have a spare 16gb microsd card and a 8 gb sd card the gateway card is pretty full right now so id rather not put pokemon x on it inless I have to. I also do not plan on downgrading im also a little confused on where cias install and once installed do they show up as tiles in emunand. do they get installed in the big sd card im asking this so I know which slot to eventualy put a bigger card in

I don't quite get your question, but if you are confused don't use .cia 's(as they can brick your 3ds). Also the saves are on the original card, so if you convert them to roms and play them, the save on the card wont get updated( so if you play it in classic mode again, you will still have your old save).

    @Xpk24, Sure thing.

    esta bien pero tu lo vas hacer porfa
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Saying it like that sounds like you want others to do it than doing the research yourself.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I've already posted a link to the Nintendo DS section so that you can post something regarding your DS flashcart. Just make sure all of your posts are in English as this is against the rules.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no yo no estoy diciendo eso solo necesito una información que necesito calmado

    no se no donde sea si pero aca en venezuela las consolas de ds esta descontinuadas y la poca información que consigo en internet no es la que nesecito
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    You know, finding information about DS flashcarts isn't that hard. They can be found pretty much everywhere and a lot of them can be still bought, however, these are clones from previous generations.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    My apologies if I'm boring you. But if you'd like help with your DS flashcart, then I highly suggest making a thread to get a quick reply. Nobody is going to help in the chat section.

    @Veho, I asked them to translate their messages, but they didn't listen.
