    Just what the title says, which Slot-2 is best for supporting GBA Games?

    Most people would recommend (assuming you don't want to pay for outdated or old equipment, even if they are good) the EZIV (miniSD, or Deluxe micro SD), or the G6 Lite/M3 Lite Perfect. Those are pretty much the only widely available choices nowadays.

    EZ IV miniSD is very good, read the review of GBATemp, and google for some reviews.

    I will keep the EX IV in mind, but I was looking more for something that would sit flush in a DS Lite, I probably should have mentioned that as well. Also I don't know if it means anything but I use a SCDS1 or an R4 and want a slot-2 device that works well with these, particularly with the SCDS1

    I have both a ezflash iv lite deluxe and a supercard lite.

    The EZ4 has better compatibility for sure but the build quality is naff and the non flushness pisses me off, not to mention the dodgy firmware... so the SClite stays in my DS and the EZ4 only comes out for some of the more problematic GBA games.

    Probably anything that has anything special in the car itself (sun sensor, rumble, tilt sensor, etc)
    Just a guess.

    Not really
    the supercard has really slow ram so most action based games experience big slowdowns

    supercard is the worst for gba compatibility

    it was just posted it lags, while you are playing the game slows down, it because they have low quality gba ram, for example on finaly fantasy tactics when you are during summon attacks etc.... it lags, some people are annoyed by it.

    Over 90% of games work with the Supercard

    I was extremely disappointed with the SuperCard Rumble I purchased. Even though I was disappointed initally the crap that is Super Card showed through, and the Super Card isnt even really that bad for DS games. If you want something that fits flush in your DS get the m3 lite or G6 lite, they both have excellent compatability. You could also try going for the ez4 deluxe but like the supercard it sticks out about 1mm

    Supercard Rumble was mostly for people that wants to play DS games only. My rumble had great combatibility and i had no problems whats so ever. If you want GBA i would recommend EZ as its the best one for GBA Games.
