Thanks for the upgrade!

I like the option for skinning - would it be possible to make the custom skin
show from the beginning, instead of showing the neoflash skin first, then loading the custom skin?

The 2D mode is very good too - I never liked the 3D icons.

The USB linker boot menu is useful, but I think it would be good to have an option in global.ini to change the order of the boot menu or turn off the boot menu.  I would turn off the boot menu when I am doing a lot of development to speed up the process.

Turning off the SMS function would be cool to :D

Now you have to confirm by pressing A like 2 times. Very annoying.

Click game icon, game starts, that's how i want it to be, not like this:
click, then click to confirm (for backup i think), then click again to confirm again the save you want to load. then the game starts.

Agree on the usb menu to turn this of or change order :D

Ok a couple things to make this the BEST slot one solution.

- Release DLDI Write Support (This is top priority!)
- Revamp menu system to be similar to DS-Xtreme. "Cubes" are just dumb and unefficent.


Thats how it shuld look like.

- Action Reply/Cheat support. This would be very nice.

And last but not least. I think this is the biggest thing that could crush and oblierate all other slot one solutions instantly.

Neo Flash 4 and 1 Solution for MK5.

- Includes
* Rumble
* Ram
* GBA
* USB Transfer



This means once you purchase this, you never need to take out your 4 and 1 ever. A DS Lite version would be needed as well. The reason that would crush all is because sure the EZ Flash 3 and 1 does some of these things, but dos it do it perfectly? NAND memory would make the efficency of having something like GBA really nice. You could use the Slot 2 as a gateway, since the NAND memory is fast enough to run GBA games.


Honestly, Neo Flash, you have gotten alot of bad rep. But its time you redo your entire firmware. To point this out again.

- Take away the blocks, use a menu system like DS-Xtreme. Heck, if you want to take this to another level. You could make it so it shows the NFO file with the boxart and information at the top.

-DLDI Write support, this is a really good and cheap slot one solution. But practically useless without write support. This should be done ASAP. Or you will lose alot of people to the R4DS.

- The NeoFlash 4 and 1. This is a requirement if you want to win people back. I have already asked several people and they would be interested in something like this.


Dr.Neo. PLEASE Listen to us. These things need to be addressed. I know it would be easy just to make another NeoFlash product and abandon this one. But you have already made a fine product. Now its time to support it ALOT. There should be updates at least once a month.

I agree - DLDI write support is very important.  Forgot to mention that in my previous post.

About the clicking extra times to choose the save you want to load - how about this:

If you press A or use stylus it launches the game with the most recently used save, or creates one if it does not exist.

If you press X it launches the game and shows a menu to choose the save.

The NeoFlash 4 and 1 and to have a new skin would be great but the only thing I want right now is a soft reset function.

If it can do   It will be saved if selection of an autosave and memory management can be performed.

Why not make an extra menu so that you can choose if you want the cubes or not. :D

Thanks to the upgrade!
Now, I can use Japanese Kanji characters for files names.
In addition, I liked 2D menu.

Some issues as a non-English/Chinese user :P

1. Japanese font looks ugly and some bitmaps are wrong
2. Japanese messages shown on menu are very strange
3. Rotating bitmap shown on menu while waiting should also be customisable

To improve on these points:

1. Font file could be separated from core upgrading module *.nds.
  Instead, it could be placed in a folder on flash memory.
  ...or if you disclose font and table format, I can prepare some.
2. Message resources could be separated as a plain text file for easier message translation.
3.  I am just asking for it ;P
