Re: Highest-Capactiy GBA Flash Cart?

On the web page that I linked earlier, it says:

SuperCard can be used on GBASP about 5 to 6 hours

In the supercard forums, there's this recent post:
http://www.scdev.org/forum/index.php/topic,14919.0.html

The person was using the card in a Gameboy Advance.

So I have to think it will work in a GBA.

Oops, hope you didn't order the rumble one, a search on google about the rumble carts explains that the rumble series is strictly for NDS and will not load games on a GBA. The ram that would support GBA functionality was completely removed and replaced with a rumble motor...

I wasn't able to find a regular Supercard Mini-SD in stock in any of the official Canada US, or even UK dealer stores.
Here's some links I found on Google which may not be reputable but list it in-stock.
I have heard of dealextreme before, they ship from Hong Kong so it takes awhile, but I usually hear good things about them, mostly their prices:

http://www.selloffaccessories.com/super ... g-p-2.html

Barring you might have to track down an EZFlash model III or IV

I went ahead and ordered this, thanks! I've been looking for a flash cart for a while now, but there are so many to choose from!
Comics, RPG's, miniatures, and now retrogaming? I guess its time to learn to go without eating...

No problem, I needed to gather a list of suppliers and products for a project I'm working on with Racketboy anyway - killing 2 birds with one stone.
I just wanted to add that it only supports up to 4GB (not 16 as I'd previously stated) as it doesn't support SDHC. Still, even 2 gigs is enough to get nearly all the worthwhile GBA roms and still have a full selection of all the good roms for the older systems.

One of the issues with having a lot of ROMs on is that it can be hard/pain to scroll down a list to get to your favorite game. I know that I have this issue with my M3 Perfect w 2GB SD card.

Do any of these GBA carts have a favorites or most recently used function? It seems that the M3 Perfect lacks this.

Supercard allows directories. I have all my GBA games categorized by type (Arcade, Fighter, Platformer, Shmup, etc) and the other systems at the bottom - zzzGB, zzzNES, zzzSMS, zzzPCE... For NES and GBC, I have nested groups of letters inside the zzzNES directory.
By default the Supercard lists whichever files were most recently added at the top, but you can use a program called FATSort to arrange them any other way.

It appears that M3 also allows directories. Thanks for pointing out what seems obvious but wasn't to me.

Re: Highest-Capactiy GBA Flash Cart?

Hey guys. I'm looking for a GBA flash cart and am wondering which one I should buy. I'd like one with drag and drop features (since I have a mac), although it's not entirely necessary to me since I have Windows installed on my computer as well. I'd greatly prefer for the cart to not stick out of the bottom of the unit. My main GBA unit is a micro and with its off center game slot it would just look awkward.

Also, I wanted to know if it is possible to use save data from a flash cart on a PC or PSP emulator (and vice-versa) or if these carts demand their own save data format. Capacity isn't the biggest issue for me, as I'm really just wanting to use these for Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen and Emerald to breed Pokemon faster (using high emulation speeds on the PC), backup my Pokemon to the computer, and experiment with Action Replay codes worry free.

Link features are a must since I want to trade these Pokemon back to my legit copy of the game to battle and trade with friends (they'd be getting this flash cart too, so there wouldn't be anybody getting the advantage :wink: ). I wouldn't think that a flash cart is incapable of linking just the same as any other cart, but having no experience with anything of this kind I would like to know.

I know that there are a ton of things I'm asking for, so thanks in advance to anyone who is able to help me :D !
