MT card Hardware Ver2.0 & Software Ver2.0 released!

MT card official update the firmware finally. It add some new feature, let’s see the official details.

1. Support SaveEdit.(Need to copy cheat.dat and Launcher.dat went to the SD card root directory)

We spent too much time on this feature. From planning to implementation, such as data capture, save file packing and modified data testing, we encountered many problems at every step. Finally, we achieved our initial commitment.

Although there are not much supported games, we will keep updating to support more games.

Meanwhile, we can collect users’ save file to analyze data, and to establish more games database. If you are interested, you can send your save file to us(with data and text description is better). Whether official game save file or ROM save file (zav, sav), it will help us to analyze save file data.

To use this feature, you need to enter MT menu(“System Settings”‐> “Other Settings” ‐>”Profile” ‐> “Nintendo DS Profile” , and press L button), then select “Save Editor” (the third icon).
Repeatedly to enter “Nintendo DS Profile” is limited on high version 3DS console. If you need multiple entry, you probably have to restart the console, or to enter “System Settings” , and then select “Exit”, and enter MT menu as we mentioned above.

For the way to enter “Save Editor”, we have a plan to make change on future version: “Save Editor” appears when we press “START”. It will take us some more time, please wait.

About the SaveEdit feature, this is the first version. Although we did a lot of tests, we still worry about data loss, so it is better to backup all the *.zav and *.sav files on your computer before using this feature. You can restore the games when you meet problem.

2.Support EXfat format MicroSD card, up to 128GB.

MT card is the first flashcard to support FAT32 format MicroSD, easy to drag and drop files. It is popular. To meet users’ requirement, we added new feature. MT card now supports EXfat format and larger capacity MicroSD card.

3.Homebrew support

At this time, I can only say sorry to everyone: I am late. but I finally catching up. Thanks to smea, and to all homebrew working people.

4.Enhance menu selection, ROMs display is more intuitive.

Press the SELECT button, you can check and select the games you like on the screen. Roms display is more intuitive. Game icon is in front and ROM file name follows the game icon, easy to distinguish 3DZ and 3DS.
UP and DOWN to select roms, L and R to turn page.

MT card has more features now, it is similar with Gateway 3DS. It is very convenience when update the firmware, the card quality is great. Honestly, MT card is deserved to be owned.

653921428

Last year, some real 3ds flashcard come out, means they can support play 3ds games on 3DS/3DSXL. Let’s collect which flashcart can play 3DS games right now.

Gateway 3DS

This is the world’s first 3ds flashcart which play 3ds games. And the most expensive. Well. it worth the price. Gateway 3DS can play almost all the 3ds games on 3DS/3DSXL (v4.1 – v4.5 system), be attention that it just support v4.1 – v4.5 console, if your console updated to the latest system, GW3DS cannot work on it. By the way, all the 3ds flashcard in the market right now, just support v4.1 – v4.5. And according to the GW3DS official news, their firmware v2.0 can support multiroms, at the moment, it just support one rom one memory card.

R4i Gold Deluxe Edition

Many users said r4i gold deluxe edition is a clone of gateway, maybe it is true, but this card is really very cheap, much cheaper than GW3DS, the card quality is good, just like their famous r4i gold 3ds rts card. The R4i Gold Deluxe Edition support one game for one sd card, work on v4.1 – v4.5. And the ofifcial said multirom will be supported on firmware v4.0. But the firmware v4.0 has not be released. The latest firmare is v3.3 right now, we don’t recommend users use v3.3, just use the first firmware v2.0 is ok. The other firmware is dangerous and easy to ban your console. So just remember, only firmware v2.0 is safest.

MT card

This is a new 3ds flashcart which support multiroms! Means you can save many games in one sd card, no need buy many sd card to save your 3ds roms. The game change method is for press a switch, mt card has a small switch on the back of the card, and has a USB port, like for card update. This is interesting, but mt card cannot support too many games. Can not support emunand.

These are the most popular 3ds flashcart which support play 3ds games.

And the offcial released fimrware, User Manual and some other details. According to the User Manual, we will know several important update. The most important is the multirom supporting. You can save many 3ds roms in one sd card, and change games during the menu or change the games one by one according to a switch at the back of the card. The blue card setting is almost as same as other 3ds flashcart, but there has a .nds file to start flashing. So when you put blue card files in sd card and start on 3DS, you will find a .nds file named “MT INSTALLER.nds”, start that file to flash. Then save launch file to 3DS sd card, and go to setting, press L then click ds profile. Here are almost same.
