    NES game.

    Yeah, I knew that it had that functionality, I just never tried it.

    I'm really interested in one of these now. I really hope that DX gets them.

    That absolutely sucks! No Gameboy/Gameboy Color hardware, weak battery, no Real Time clock, AND hard buttons. I'm regretting buying this thing. I wonder if I could cancel my order. I'm off to see if I can. Thank you so much for the information rockinreject!

    If you can't cancel your order let me know and I may buy it from you.

    If the hardwares a problem, that means you must have loads of old gameboy/gameboy color games that you want to play? - If you've loadsa games, why wouldn't you have the one gba game that needs a battery to work? :P Its just one game. So I don't see the big deal...
    http://gbatemp.net/topic/323667-pokemon-ruby-sapphire-clock-other-patches/page__p__4178571__hl__+pokemon%20+time%20+patch__fromsearch__1#entry4178571 Theres the patch I was talking about. You can go to any poke centre and change the time. So even as is, its completely playable.
    Either way I hope you get to cancel your order if thats what you want to!

    Yeah the work-arounds seem realistic enough really. Besides, you have native rom support for GB/GBC roms on the K-Kart so you shouldn't have issues that your cart won't work, you can still play the game on fairly authentic hardware.. And the patches for the pokemon are really good as long as you take the time to just change the clocks.

    I'm keeping an eye out for this just to add to the collection. One thing I wonder though, in terms of the physical casing of the device, does it look like an obvious clone or is it a decent quality case? Also, are there multiple colours available if you request one?

    Or you could get the actual game!

    Yeah, it seems like its the genuine casing alright! And I requested blue and got blue, someone else here did the same with black? and got black... So yeah, just specify what colour in the comments box when ordering.

    Its reinventing the console for me, I'm hosting a firered / leaf green tournament with loads of my friends as well as reliving all those classics - advance wars and the likes!

    I ordered black as well so hopefully it turns into a 3-0 streak.

    The tourny sounds like a good time. Out of all the clones I have seen this one does seem above and beyond the rest. I'm really interested in this comment, "K Team is working with manufacturers to come out new model and new form factor." I was hoping the new case design maybe similar to a micro but with a slightly larger screen.

    From what I have read on Obscure Handhelds and a post that I found on some Chinese forums by Maxzhou88, there is a new cased version in the works which resembles the GB Micro/Dingoo. Here is the Obscure Handhelds post: http://obscurehandhelds.wordpress.com/2012/01/31/what-do-we-have-here/

    Basically the K-Team provide the boards and stuff, but other parties make the casing. So I don't know who actually designed the SP clone one, but apparently Maxzhou88 is the brain behind the newer look. Personally I prefer the SP look on this just since I don't really care from the dingoo. I do love my GBM but that's another story for another time ;)

    That's been a standard PocketNES feature for many versions. Note that for games that are too large to be transferred via the link cable, you can do what's known as "dummy linking" where you send over a game that *is* small enough and then simply both look at the first GBA when playing, ignoring anything happening on the second GBA. The button presses are still transmitted via the link cable.

    Rom would be better. I know that the solar patches have been around for ages.

    Yeah, well I've gotten some more time, so I could finally start playing Sapphire. I deleted the save I had and started again - no battery warning or anything like that - But after a good half an hour playing I went back to check the clock and it was exactly where I set it. No movement at all. Just thought I'd give you a bit of an update. I'll play some more, and come back to it this evening. But I'm guessing it'll still be on 6 minutes past 2!

    Waiting for mine to arrive in the mean time I've been digging round to see what I can find on it.


    It seems TV-out isn't standard but may be included on a later revision maxzhouh88 did a hardware mod (DIY cable) this would explain the lack of cable from taobao, It would be nice to know how to hack this together theres a link to at the bottom of the item description on taobao :- TV-out DIY but no no images display (atleast for me).

    And some PCB shots http://hi.baidu.com/...9fa61e1211.html

    maxzhou88 / K-team seem to have done a fantastic job with this product taking GBA to the next level

    Edit:

    Images working for me now just need to find a cable (GBA end)

    maxzhou88 can we use a female usb wired to 2 rca with the existing power rather than butcher the cable / Is the USB power cable fully wired?

    Thank you for the update. Thank goodness Xmarks, or whatever they're called, gave me a refund. I'm going to wait until Pokemon games are hardware supported, and a new system design is implemented. If maxzhou88 wants to get this system on Deal Xtreme, he needs to do what other clones wont. :)
