supercard update

the updated supercard software and firm ware came out so i thought i would
talk about it abit.

well i was happy and yet upset all at the same time .

ok first of all let me just say ,
this is not a bad update they correct alot of things that didn't work befor
mainly the list of games that work with the supercard jumped up.

now you can save your games to your CF/SD
and load games dirrectly (the wait is gone for loading games)

so the final thought ,
the supercard is still buggy as all hell when it comes to loading NDS games .
the convert software still has games that don't want to work.
either it will turn up a 0k file or it will fail to load once on the card.

some games just refuse to save for no real reason what so ever.
other games save just fine then once every random 100th save
you'll get a message that your save just corrupted.
nothing is more agervating then not being able to save or
loosing a game 5 hours in from it nuke'n itself.
so back up your save files on your pc often
daily at least, if not every time you turn off your DS.

i think i should start this off with pro's and cons ..


- you can put a ton of stuff on there GBA or DS STUFF
- you have a DS menu to traverse this ton of stuff that you put on there
- loading up homebrew and NDS apps and stuff is a Snap
- the patching software is pretty easy to use
- patching NDS roms is quick about 15 to 30 seconds tops
- it's got a low price tag


- NDS game roms will not boot without at least metroid hunters in your NDS slot
- only about a 1/3 of all the roms out there can be patched or work
- the saving on the cart is the most retarded system i've ever seen in my life
- GBA games even come back with a corrupt save most of the time
- the thing is made of the cheapest plastic i've ever seen
- the way the CF card sticks out can have a pestering effect
- as it statnds 90% of the NDS stuff doesn't save at all so you end up playing the first level/part of a game over and over again
- the thing takes time to load apps and games sometimes up to 2 minutes or more
- expect alot of trail and error ... mostly error
- You can boot it with wifi but you can't run anything once in the menu with wifime

more detailsCollapse )

Japanese DS sales exceed 3,000,000!

just a bit of news,

Alongside the announcement yesterday that Nintendogs is proving its worth in the States, it would be foolish to ignore the success of the Nintendo DS in the far East. This week the three millionth Nintendo DS unit was sold in Japan, taking the total number of hardware units sold to 3,015,895 and rising. Bearing in mind that Sony's PSP, without a doubt the DS' closest competitor and rival, has sold a comparatively measly 1,652,728 units, its pretty obvious who is winning the race. Unlike in Europe, in Japan the Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP were launched at around the same time, December last year, making the DS' lead all the more impressive.

pre supercard review ...

if you was planing on flashing your DS firmware with a supercard forget it unless you have a passME.

the other night i get a IM from a person looking for my help on flashing his DS bios with a supercard
and WifiME.

to sum things up and make this real quick,
the person had done everything right.
so i fire up my WMB server and i already the flashme file on hand so i drop it on my card
so i download the multiboot packet and the supercard DS mode menu pops up ...
i pick flashme.nds and i get white screens just like this person had been getting ..
it seems that the DS mode through the supercard and wifi doesn't work at all .
even though i had flashme already installed on my bios nothing would load when i used
wifime to boot the supercard .. but i could run flashme.nds booting in flashme mode!

which is just useless and profoundly stupid but i guess considering there saying you should use a passME
with the thing anyways i can see where the wifi me might not of ever come up ... i know
i didn't think of it till it was brought to my attention

so in the next few days i'm helping them by letting them use my gba flash card to run it .

anyone in the Detriot/greatlakes crossing (mall) area that would like to use my stuff
also should get at me .

Also if anyone wants to repost this on nintendo_ds feel free just give me credit and
point them back here ... i'm just too lazy to do so at the moment =)
