Sloth/Mod

]dealextreme.com are usually the cheapest but i think they are out of stock at the moment but they usually re-stock quite quickly. As Hu5tler said, the R4 is the best all round. :thumbsup:

Dont you need 2 bits, one that plugs into the top and one into the bottom?

Any chance of someone poking me into the direction of a guide?

No only the older Supercards needed an adaptor in the GBA slot then a card in DS slot to trick the DS into thinking it was a real DS games, now its either or, you can get a DS slot card or a GBA slot card.

Best thing about most GBA slot cards is they allow you to play GBA games whereas the R4 doesnt.

get the r4 il tell you how to use it.

supercardstore.com/

Highly reccommend that site, I have a supercard and its awesome.

Have a look at this guide, it has videos displaying what to do and everything.

All you'll need is a case if you're taking it about with you and some earphones. Everything else is supplied.

Get all my 'homebrew' from torrent sites. :thumbsup:

dont want to sound stupid, but what do these things actualy do?

allow you to play "ahem" backup "ahem" games??

they allow you to play pirated back up games. why not just say it makes you sound even thicker if you dont say it.

if its white then get a case as white ones get dirty very quickly if its black doesnt matter wont get dirty just smudges.

I ordered my R4 from these guys. Good price and delivery was about 5 days from the land of the rising sun.

Their support line is superb and any questions about the item get answered in hours rather than days.

My R4 came with the 2gb mini sd card, and a mini-sd to sd card converter, and a usb2 stick that the mini sd card slots into so you have 2 ways to get the software onto the mini-sd.

Shame littlewoods sodded around so much I cancelled my DS-lite order in a fit of rage. They quoted me 25th August for my DS that i ordered in 9th July... and that was PROVISIONAL.....

Good luck mate

Biz

PS. The R4's ARE in stock, it was the mini-sd cards they couldnt get. mine came with a Kingston 2GB card and they credited my PayPal the 3 dollars difference that day. I will buy from them again.

Also, Syzable, the one i got has a small plastic protective case with it. All round good deal. Especially with PayPal at 2 dollars for the £.
