So I am FINALLY getting some money for a R4DS... but...

Post by Dr. KillGood » Sat Dec 15, 2007 3:16 pm

I have been looking around and some people are saying the R4DS is the "bottom of the line" when it comes to (what ever you call it? DS expansion?). I also am seeing these other ones that seem to be exactly the same as a R4DS, Top Toy DS, M3 Real lite, DS extreme, ect... ect...

I have no idea which one to get? I just want it for movies/music mainly, and you can put AIM and MSN on your DS and that looks freakin' sweet. (I can bother triton on the go)

So what should I get, I was going to get a R4 but after reading what people say I don't know if I should?

Get the R4. It kicks major ass and I haven't had any real problems with it.

I don't want to make an "I'm leaving" thread, but I've sort of lost interest in this board. So if you notice that I'm gone, that's why.

It does what you want it to, and it does it well.

I just got an R4 and it is great. Of course, I've never had any other kind of flash cart for the DS, but I can highly recommend it. You'll just have to add a micro SD card.

Most DS Flashcards are pretty similar. The main differences just being build quality and compatibility.

Using something called DLDI, flashcard owners can put a bit of code in some homebrew that makes it compatible with their card. Apparently, the R4 does all that for you.

I don't have an R4, I have an EZ-Flash V. It's not bad, but some things just don't work with it sometimes, and a few weeks ago it just stopped working.

(It's working now.)
If you're looking at this post and it was made before 2008, just ignore it.

R4DS is great. The only thing people go crazy over is that it doesn't come with a GBA Expansion card to play GBA roms.

But, you can just buy an EZ Flash 3 in 1 and problem solved!

I have had an R4DS for a couple months now, and I really like it. One thing that bugs me is that it crashes sometimes when you close your DS, but it's not that bad.

Also, could you post a link to that aim thing?
