    No, hardware platform dies when it has no appeals and no exclusive games that stands out.
    Nintendo platforms has plenty of unique games that keeps its products alive.

    It's currently just overshadowed by other stuff and made redundant by the 3DS. Flashcarts arent popular right now due to the whole "could brick your 3DS" thing cuz Nintendo. Once the 3DS goes away and a bit of time comes up, people will start showing interest in the DS again and things will ramp up. It just comes down to needing some time.

    I got mine from a legitimate business, even had an ABN.
    Totally random, but their business email was hooked up to windows messenger, I remember having a few random conversations with who ever managed the account.

    Good thing they weren't a paedophile, I was too young for that shit

    I have an R4i Gold but they put an expiry date on the firmware and stopped releasing updates ages ago so I have to keep setting the date back a year to get it to boot.

    I have a legit R4 and a DSTwo lying around somewhere. I wasted so much time on IRC homebrew clients back in the day.

    eBay banned the sales of flashcarts years ago. Any listing you see on eBay won't be up for very long.

    For some reason, some web page tabs in Chrome would randomly loose scrolling abilities, unless you drag the scroll bar on the right side of the page. Refreshing the page doesn't fix this.
    i've had that problem. shit's annoying

    i just close the tab and reopen it to fix it

    If I ever get the problem of not scrolling I just turn on my NoMouse script and navigate FP by keyboard .

    I still have one and it's legit but I don't have any firmware for it. The firmware I've tried just doesn't boot so it's probably not for the same card. IIRC the official R4DS site went down a while ago so I don't know where to go.

    It just wasn't build to last. Dunno where it is at the moment but it just refuses to work with all the data on the card that should work as its unchanged.

    My guess is the idea was so to force people to upgrade their firmware to the latest. It just has the downside of, well, uh, everything.

    It'd be a fine idea if they just removed the timebomb in their last update...

    yeah, the least they could do is do that..

    I would have just asked them for the font
    If it's like any company I've done freelance work for, they have no idea what the font is.

    Going off the fact that a shortcut is about 750 bytes (on windows)...
    About eleven million something

    No, 8GB of every version of the driver and all associated files since I last reformatted
