R4 questions

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get an R4. I only want to play NES/SNES Roms. Where is the best place in the US to order one from? I ordered from gameyeeaah but cancelled after I found out they were in HK. I prefer to order from the US. Also, I hear the new version (R4v3) supports SDHC, which TF card is best?

I got mine from www.echostore.com. Probably not the cheapest place to buy anymore, but meh.

gameyeeaah has a US store as well. Have ordered over a dozen R4s from them. Great to deal with. Seems like they and everyone else is backordered on R4s right now though :) Had to order in 3 CycloDS Evolution cards for people since I couldn't find any R4s. Great card too... but mSD card is a biatch to get out of them. Looks like som backorders are finally coming in for R4s now so I can go back to those beauties!

The person I'm getting from on Amazon, says they're the v3's. Those support SDHC right? If so, what's the best microSD card to get? I only want 2GB to start.

 

Also, I heard the SNES emu runs at 200% speed is that right? If so, maybe I'll wait to order an R4 until the emu's are ready.

Th R4 is on its way. What are the best SNES and NES emus available for the DS?

SNES Emulator: SNEmulDS

NES Emulator: nesDS

 

Also, I don't know if the new R4's support SDHC.

I've heard no such thing for support of SDHC, and the faq on the R4 site mentions no such thing.

 

http://www.r4ds.com/product-en.htm#a4

 

There is also no mention on the site of any V3.

 

There is tons of blabbing on GBATemp about it, but nothing otherwise and the posts are seriously OLD.

The person I bought it from said to use this site instead of the .com site:

 

http://www.r4dsl.net/index-en.asp

 

Is this some sort of scam?

 

This is the e-mail I got from them after I ordered:

being stuck on the "Loading" screen b/c you are using the wrong software on

SCAM. Theres no need to use FAT32 unless you are indeed using an SDHC card larger than 4GB (Infact it's slower than FAT). Not to mention "Encrypted" Firmware you MUST install from the CD?

The firmware is nothing more than a zip/rar you unpack onto the microsd card, and you shouldn't bother using the firmware on the CD it's outdated.

 

Sounds like a clone to me.

Those don't match, and R4DSL domain was only created @ 2008-02-28 02:50:48
