    I've had a r4 for the longest time and have never had a problem with it. Alot of the newer ds games do need to be patched but you can find almost all of them already patched. However, if I had to buy another flashcart today, it'll probably have to be an Acekard 2 with the AKAIO firmware.

    I got my AceKard 2i from www.realhotstuff.com. It was only 50 bucks with getting a micro SD card for it including shipping. I have 30 games on it right now. It runs all the multiplayer games over WIFI or DS Wireless Connections just like the other games. The only game I've purchased is Pokemon HeartGold because it comes with the pokewalker. Gotta catch em all :wiggle:

    Long time user of AceKard 2.1 with AKAIO firmware and I have NEVER had a problem.

    Either get an R4 that isn't a knock off or a AceKard.

    do the roms just display on the top screen or something (snes, etc)? how do you guys like your flash carts, etc? i'd just rather deal with having cfw on my ds instead of going through the fucking ass pain of putting it on my psp. i would just think it would look nicer on a psp with the widescreen and all. but not putting up with bullshit to get it hacked is a plus.

    CycloDS is the most reliable card for lites. R4 no longer receives firmware updates and support

    ^ A link to a thread at gbatemp discussing some of the perks of cyclods and the acekard2i. Although the R4 recently got a firmware update, it's still behind in terms of functionality and extras. Plus the GUI's are nicer for the cyclods and the acekard. Can't go wrong with either~

    thanks for the link. yea, i was either going to go with the cyclods or acekard2i. i'm just really looking to play ds games and snes games with it. not much more than that.
