    different firmwares tbh just trying out most. Do any other carts offer real time saving? apart from supercard and cyclone?

    Which has been the best?

    Depends age wise if like feature wise then id recommend the super card its cheaper then the cyclone and does the same thing.

    If you want some easy id go for the M3/R4

    Beware of the fakes though N5, R4 deluxe.

    probably go for a super card again i fink.

    What have you done, lost them all. :w00t:

    At the end of the day, do they all play games the same way as originals.
    If so, just pick one out of a hat. :thumbsup:

    Nah just sold em most of them given to family members etc.

    M3-real and EZ5 has real-time save now, tho I hear the ez5 one is very buggy.

    I liked the supercard personally for some reason, especially the multi-boot setup with DSTT and Y's, gives you 3 cheat systems to choose from

    Cyclods, the best of them all

    I bought a dstt cart from dealextreme for a silly cheap price

    A 2gb Kingston micro sd card fom Ebay for pennies

    Stuck about 30 games on it

    I will never forget the look on my wee nephews face when I turned up with this as a surprise :-D

    As he scrolled through all the games, he told me it was the best surprise ever :thumbsup:

    you should know..

    Cyclo DS

    But i know you are a cheapskate so just get a DSTT lol

    :whistling:

    I've got an Edge card. Cheap-ish (was £20 from a UK supplier) and works perfectly with every game I've tried.
    Doesn't have all the bells & whistles of the Cyclo DS but does everything I want it to do just fine.

    Had an R4 previously, and you can get them now for about £13 (again, from UK suppliers), but I'm pretty certain they are no longer being supported with firmware updates, so you can expect more and more games in the future to not work on them.

    R4's for me, must have dealt with at least 100 never had one fault in approx 2 years.

    Probably not the cheapest or most up to date but given that track record I will always use them.

    Hearing a lot of problems with DSTT these days, cheapest isn't always the best way to go

    mines is genuine

    "R4's for me, must have dealt with at least 100 never had one fault in approx 2 years."

    They always work fine, that's true, plus it's very easy to get an exact replica of the original R4 very cheaply these days (I say "replica" because the original R4 team dis-banded a while back and the standard R4 cards now on sale are replica designs produced by a couple of members of the original team).

    It's actually unfair to call them replicas since they are basically identical to the old R4's, but the problem with the original team dis-banding is that I'm pretty certain they've stopped updating the software.
    There have been several games released in the past few months that don't work on the R4 (but work fine on more modern cards with the latest software), and I would assume more and more games in future won't work on it.

    I'n not 100% certain of all this by the way, but going by what I've read from several sources, this seems to be the case.

    The moral seems to be - "If you want to future-proof your DS for forthcoming releases, get a modern flash-cart and don't buy the R4"
