I guess I could make use of this Game Boy section to ask a Game Boy Advance-related question. :wink:

I'm thinking of buying this:

But I'm a bit skeptical about its "client software" that is needed to patch roms.

Will emulators run fine on this? I only own a GBASP, not a DS.

The other flashcart I have been looking at is the M3 Perfect, which doesn't seem to be around anymore. :(

Most of this "patching" is minor mapper-hacking so that games relying on flash or serial EEPROM can work with ordinary SRAM. As I understand it, the patching won't be attempted if it doesn't see the standardized save I/O subroutines. In general, if you want to know if a given card can run Goomba Color, the best forum I know of for GBA flash card help is pocketheaven.com.

I own both the normal version and the lite version(designed to fit in nice and snug inside a DS Lite). Excellent cart for playing GBA games and as for emulators all I ever really tried out was a NES emulator and that worked fine( I have forgotten if you had to patch homebrew to get it to work). The patching software worked fine with the myriad of games I chucked at it.

Interesting. I take it the one I'm looking at here is not the Lite version?

Regardless, what NES emulator are you using? PocketNES I assume?

I own a DS lite and GBA SP. I have the EZ FLASH IV, and it works great on both of them. After downloading the gba games I use the "ez4_client" to add save patches to the roms and write them into the TF card. After this, it's game time. I think it's no hassle at all using the client software. :o :o

Heads-up: The board is thicker than a standard GBA cartridge.

Nowadays I think anyone would be better off with a GBA EverDrive, since krikzz's creations are of much higher quality than the typical chinese crap.

The Everdrive GBA is awesome, don't really see why anyone would go for an EZ Flash IV these days aside from price.
