Anyway congratulations to the winners  :P

I... I'm really sorry, I took places in both reviewers top three and already have won a prize for a game. Neo, am I right that you said that review winners don't get another prize? If that's the case then, if possible, I would like to leave my places for the 4th.

Whoa!  It looks like I'm taking three places out of the 12 for the reviewers - does that mean I can choose 3 prizes?

Wow, I'm surprised I placed, never mind got number 1 for top games reviewer!  It really was a lot of fun to do, but this is the icing on the cake!  Thanks Dr. Neo, and to all the coders who took part and gave me such great stuff to review!  Also congrats to all the other reviewers, I thought there were some very well written reviews, and I know from writing my own, a lot of time invested!

 :)

Yeah I wonder if ther's a multiprize option too. It would definitely make the decision a whole lot easier :D

Also is the TTDS listed there any special? Since you can get one for like $28, just wondering if it's the version with the ewin expansions or something.

Just thinking that exact thing!

I've got a dstt and for a lot less than that.

You must be well happy - winner in the actual coding as well - really well done.

Congratulations to all the great reviewers! As an homebrew author, your feedback has been really invaluable!  ;D

On a side note, I'll choose the cash too. I just sent you a PM, Dr Neo.

Thank you very much for organizing this great compo, it was really a fantastic experience! Big thanks from the homebrew community!  :-*

WOOHOO! I won something! Now to pick… so many choices…  ???

Yeah it's not really easy to pick one, not at all.
R6 Gold - built-in motion but not too much beyond that, bad compatibility and (correct me if I'm wrong) no auto-dldi (which would make using one microsd for more cards kind of problematic).
MK5 - 2Gigabytes of memory and at least somewhat better compatibility. Again no auto-dldi, not so much of a problem with its memory here tho. Also I can't find any info on how it performs with multiplayer and of course download play.
TTDS - Pretty neat, working, budget priced flashcart. But as a prize the cheapness of the card comes out as a negative. Kind of a prize-waste here maybe.
The $129 GBA Flashcart - The price has me intrigued but I can't find how it's any better than other gba carts of the same memory, not to mention I've got my trusty 256MBit F2A so I don't need one. Maybe get this and sell it?
Those slot-2 NDS solutions - Dunno, really. At least they boot GBA, hopefully.
PSP Motion - Guess that's a quite good choice for those who have a PSP and no motion. At this moment I've only got a DS and some friends with PSP that use no homebrew. The same applies to the other PSP accessories.
4GB Disk - Kind of big compared to pen drives but it's 4GB that work with PC aswell, might be at least somewhat useful.
9in1 reader - Ok a memory card reader, nice. But don't you get these with the flashcarts :D ?
TF reader - I've got one of these small readers, it gets lost all the time and is kinda trickier to use. If you're really out of space get it but otherwise a normal reader works just as well.
Super SNK AC - Huh? Ok, kinda bizzare but maybe somebody finds a use for that.
Etc., etc. Tough decision really, if I could take 3 prizes I'd prolly get the R6, MK5 and TTDS.

Yeah, I ended up with a NEO2-SD. I wanted the NEO2-TF, but it wasn't fat-compatible. :(

The R6 Gold would have been mine hands-down if I didn't already have one. *points to sig* :)

So you say the R6 gold isn't all that bad? Alright... I might choose that one maybe...
Also the TF one might not be FAT compatible but from what I've read the NEO2 isn't even homebrew nor GBA compatible so there's no use for FAT anyway :/
I might well be wrong tho and the reviews I read outdated.

I absolutely love it. My 4GB microSDHC works pretty good, the only (homebrew) compatibility problems I've run into are some games not able to address the massive size. If I put them on the 64MB microSD (not HC), they work without a hitch. Commercial compatibility is horrible. If you want to run ROMs, get something, anything else. But, since I back up my games from the actual carts, I actually OWN the carts, it's not that big a deal. And now, with my SLOT-2 device, I'll be able to run GBA roms (I dump them myself) and use other SLOT-2 useful things.

btw, I meant "fat" like the original DS, not the DS Lite. I guess I'm so used to saying that with PSP-related things.

Oh well, I have a cyclo which works very well with backups. Also if you're reffering to the old model of the DS "phat" is usually used, at least it rules out the confusion between fat as the adjective and FAT as the filesystem. Anyway I wish you best of luck running GBA stuff on NEO2.

I'm disapointed too....I reviewed all games and all apps for nds and no cake for me  :'(

But at least there were several good & complete reviews for all the games and I really think that is the point in this - so congrats to all the participants and all the reviewers!

I thought there would only be 6 reviewer prizes - not 12 otherwise I probably would have put more focus on games ;)  but I'm surpised the super detailed & funny reviews by Ben didn't win.....so I guess there was no hope for me anyways... ::sm-03::

Hi.  Thanks for all of the great competitions.  I hope the summer compo is even better.  ~sm-33.gif~

Anyway, I choose the PSP motion kit.  Maybe I can use it for the summer entry.

Alright, note taken, thanks. It just seems a bit hard to find the most recent info.

No GBA support?! ZOMG! Hold the presses! What?!
I can't say for sure but reviews I read stated the GBA filetype is unknown to the loader. Might have been fixed with some updates tho and I hope it was.

Post by: leinad on April 15, 2008, 09:17:08 PM
Yay ;D never tough I could get in the Top-10~

I'll chose the MK5-16G + Rumble Pack, I already had a N-Card Clone and were realy satisfield with it.
First wanted to get a R6 or TT but they require SD card ._.
Don't want to buy a SD card even if I already have a working Homebrew-Card.

See ya at the next compo ^_^
