SuperCard DSTWO

All Nintendo R4 3DS flash cards can play NDS Roms & DSi Roms, Use R4medi player to listen to MP3 music as well as Emulate the classic 8-bit NES, GBC and SEGA console games and some 16-bit games from SNES, MAME and SEGA Genesis with limited speed and no sound, but when it comes to running 32-bit Gameboy ADVANCE roms on 3DS and DSi XL you will need the SuperCard DSTWO 3DS flash card with a built-in CPU co-processor and extra RAM memory that adds the processing power needed to run GBA, SNES and MAME games at full speed and with sound. SC3DS also adds full featured DivX Video Player with DivX, XviD, Avi, MKW and even WMV video file support, subtitles etc.. Regular R4i Cards, R4 3DS and AceKard 2i can play video, but you will need to use a software tool on PC to re-encode video in a format that the R4DS media player can understand. With SuperCard DSTWO there is no need to alter the files that you get from Torrents - just place them on the microSD card -- put that into the R4 3DS SuperCard adapter and play on 3DS, DSi or the old NDS.

Buy original Flash Cards for Nintendo consoles at R4 Shop (R4DS /R4i DSi official online retailer)

NDSPatcher v 0.1
With this nice little tool from ]{ain you can patch NDS ROMS (clean unaltered dumps) so that they will work on nearly all DS compatible GBA Flash Cards and save game progress in the GBA cart. If you already have a flash cartridge like X-ROM can use NDS Patcher to play commercial NDS roms that they coud not play before. (Requies DS PassMe or FlashMe)

NDS Patch Tool

* SuperCard DSTWO with a built in GBA Emulator can play GBA ROMS on Nintendo DSi and DSiXL! Works similar to VirtualConsole on Wii ald same as with other R4 cards NDS roms work and nes, snes, sega etc.

Older NDS and DS Lite flash cards do not work on the new updated DSi console, and cart firmware updates do not help, but there is a new generation of nds rom backup tools that work on DSi: DSTWO,
R4i SDHC, SuperCard DSONEi, AceKard 2i, iTouch2, DSTTi and EZ-Flash Vi. In addition to being compatible with all versions of the DS they can now work with SDHC cards that can hold as man as 32GB of nds roms. (Older model microSD cards have a 2GB memory size limit).

When ordering pick a store near you so you get a free delivery and fast shipping.

nintendo ds flash card gbaWhat we tested.
At this point there is NO NDS Flash Card or Linker made specificly for backup of Nintendo DS Roms so we have tested the compatibilty of Gameboy Advance Backup devices with the NDS.
At this point we looked at the most simpele and at the same time the most important things.

  • Can you play Games from the specific GBA Flash Card
  • Does the Card & Linker Backup set works with Nintendo DS

How we tested. Just to be sure all the Linkers and Carts were first connected to GBA SP and after we nade sure they work - we put them to the DS test...

Nintendo has announced more details of its up-coming new dual-screen portable gaming device, the Nintendo DS. NOA has finally confirmed Nintendo DS (NDS) release dates and suggested retail price. Price tag in the US of $149.99 (£84), and 15,000 yen in Japan (£76). At the first month when he demand is bound to be high and shortage of Nintendo DS units can be predicted we think you will see NDS retail for a bit higher price.

Nintendo DS Emulator NDS romsDS final version design has a sleeker look and will be launched in two colors silver and black. When the device was announced in January, it was stressed that it was not meant to be the successor to the Gameboy Advance SP   - and you can easily understand the reason for that - N tries to keep selling cheap GB Advance while advancing the DS for more demanding gamers. If they would have announced that GBA is "dead" and will be substituted by new NDS - the sales of the GBA would plummet..

Surprisingly  - for the first time in the history Nintendo gaming giant, which dominates the portable games market, is releasing such a device in the US before Japan. Nintendo DS will go on sale on 21 November in the US and 2 December in Japan. (Europe will see the device on sale sometime at the start of 2005.)

Rival Sony has postponed the release of its PlayStation Portable (PSP) until early 2005. It is widely expected to go on sale in Japan first, however.

Nintendo already announced a 20% price cut on its popular Gameboy Advance and GBA SP $79 in an attempt to reinforce its position as the dominant portable gaming device.

The things we are anxiously expecting to see:
