    I think the ezflash is the only option. All others have been discontinued. Most are collectors items, so you'll pay over 100$ for any other ezflash cart.

    I was thinking the same thing, the only problem though is the ezflash doesnt have a RTC, so pokemon and some other games wont work, then you will need to be paying a lot :(

    They definitely work even without RTC. I own an EZ-Flash IV and I've been playing Pokemon on them for quite a while. Ofc, time-based events will not work, like berries growing, but who the hell cares about that anyway?

    I think there patches that you can apply to the rom to fix the clock. Example

    Personally, I would patch RTC games and get a EZFlash IV, simply because its cheap, if you don't want to do patches and have a working clock, then you can only get a Everdrive GBA for $100 :/

    Honestly though, if you have the money, go for an Everdrive. I've been a proud owner of one for 3 weeks now and I'm absolutely in love with it. RTC works like a charm, no patching or other fuckery needed.
    Apart from that, the only alternative is the EZFlash

    if you're planning to use it on a ds lite, i've got supercard lite's available which will do the job (and are about half price compared to ez flash 4)

    Some flashcarts have trouble with graphics intensive games. I know the supercard CF I've got around, is no good for F-Zero Climax.
