    My friend wants to buy a GBA but I might mention this device to him instead. It seems like a better option.

    I can't tell from the pics but it this thing using the "new brighter screen" found on later model GBA SP?

    From what I can tell it is a backlit screen, just like the old k-team clone which is in an original GBA shell. What I am curious about is whether this thing would run a GBC flash cart, since it is essentially a clone of the original hardware

    No, It just runs gba games, apparently they omitted the hardware needed for the gb and gbc games so I don't think that your flash cart would work. You can still play all the old games via emulators on it though.

    Hmm is that so? Never saw that part anywhere. I don't have a flash cart for the GBC since my EZ-IV can emulate them but I was just curious. I guess my question would have also worked if I'd asked about original GB/GBC carts >.>;;

    "K Team Says:

    As explained earlier, the GB & GBC cartridge was omitted at early stage of the development since we thought most of the GB & GBC game titles have their GBA resembled. But you can still play GB & GBC ROMs using the built-in emulators. Sorry about that, maybe in next version. We hope young kids can get the same thrill as we did before. For older men/women, this is just another journey to remember. For the team, we kind of enjoyed the fun developing this stuff. But trust me, it’s really tough to achieve what you have seen now. We believe it’s the one and only and there probably won’t be another.. We hope manufacturers can come out more models using this solution. You can voice your request to DX or other web stores you used to shop. Let them know you don’t want those emulators, you just want the Hardware version, the K Solution."

    Well that covers it, I read their newer posts on there in regards to updates and bugfixes, but must've skipped that one. Still, it doesn't exactly make this GBA clone unattractive. It says you can play roms using the 'built-in emulators', and obscurehandhelds states there are a few emulators on there which are 'experimental' :)

    I wouldn't want to play SNES on this, but if it plays GBC/GB roms without any problems then that is good.

    Well mines on the way - although shipping will probably take forever as usual! ...But when I get it, I can test any game you want! Only a few gb/gbc games that interest me...

    I'm very interested to hear so more in-hand thoughts, thinking about getting this one, I especially like the video out feature!

    If you can, could you test Pokemon R/S/FR/LG/E linking to Pokemon Colosseum/XD.

    I CAN try out the gamecube connection thing for you, used to turn the gameboy into a tingle controller on one of the Zelda games? But I see no reason it wouldn't work... :P

    I am sure it would link to the machine, so the Zelda one should work fine, but my main concern is Colosseum/XD trying to access the sav file.

    Yeah, I was actually playing Sigma Star Saga earlier! ...only got past the first mission though - but it was perfect. And the Golden Sun games are definitely in my list of games to play so i'll check that out for you soon!

    Did you upgrade the Firmware? Cause I just tested it and Doom 2 saves perfectly.

    In fact the only glitch i've noticed in any game is in Jet Grind Radio... Theres just a certain rail on a certain level that causes it to freeze. Dunno if its a game/rom glitch but I'm gonna try out the US (Jet Set Radio) to see if its in it.

    EDIT - actually nevermind, Jet Grinds working fine :P must have been a game issue.
