    I was wondering if I can use the 3 in 1 Expansion Pack with R4 ? I don't think the GBA feature would work but if Opera and Rumble works, I'll definetly get one. Realhotstuff is now selling them for $22, i think it's a very good deal..

    wont work yet, no idea if the R4 devs will ever support it.

    if its a must-have, id get the EZV.

    I doubt the EZ team will ever allow it to work with anything else but the EZF5, but the R4 team might make a firmware update to enable this. (Or make their own 3-in-1 solution.)

    Since this won't work, is there any alternative? I just like having RAM and Rumble in the same pack.

    the EZ team released the code needed for other devices to support the 3 in 1, so they do allow it, it just has to be supported by other cards now.

    They did [​IMG] ??

    That will have a positive effect on the 3-in-1 sales, but a negative effect on the EZF5 sales. Well, I guess their market research guys know their stuff and things will balance out in their favour.

    Here's hoping that the next R4 firmware update will have support for this...the last update didn't inspire me too much. [​IMG]

    They released the code so that homebrew software could use it, other cards being able to use it for commercial roms is just a side effect.

    It's very smart for EZteam to release such device.. It's very VERY useful if you have and EZV. GBA support is not that important, but the rumble and extra ram is more important to me, I hope someone would release such app

    Wasn't there a hardware dump of the EZV firmware some time ago? Is it possible to place this dump on the R4DS and run it from there, thus might be able to run the Expansion pack on the R4?

    I would definetly want the GBA support, it would be even better but I was just saying, for only $20, it's still a pretty good deal even without the gba support. There is an another option which supercard rumble and it's $35 + you need a micro sd to play GBA games and I'm not really sure how rumble would work.

    Supercard Rumble doesn't play GBA games.

    the reply was to the post right above it, which mentioned the supercard rumble as an alternative.
