    Why don't you give up Urza?

    Don't you get depressed and just feel like giving up? The "use search" and "read other threads" posts always fall on deaf earsblind eyes. Almost enough to make ya feel like givin' up.

    ~100 roms?!

    you would need an external memory card (it would take SD, etc) or the G6 Lite. I guess any cart would work... u can store ~100 GBA roms i think, i dont feel like testing that. but y 100?!!?

    GAMES VARY IN SIZE

    magic words "ALMOST". Urza can always try.

    The very definition of insane, to do the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result.

    why do you think he has that screaming avatar icon.

    The migration of gba options are going to gba expansion packs, pick one for your open ended question mario41001. you will be much happier with whatever you pick than a recommendation. really.

    now choose.

    Hmmm, I did some research and concluded either the EZIV Lite b/c a lot of people like it, The M3 Lite b/c it has the rtf(real time function like for pokemon), or the g6 lite b/c everyone likes it. Can anyone enlighten me on which is really the best slot 2? (Just for GBA not homebrews)

    P.S. I would add supercard lite but people complain too much about the slowdowns and lag issues.

    There will always be buyers remorse after you buy a card it's a law of nature even if you get the best cart available

    And the card i always recommend is the EZ-Flash IV (phat) and i have never gotten a single hate PM yet Not to mention when posts show up with questions/problems about them I'm usually the first one to answer (fast6191 will sometimes beat me though) were both from http://ezflash.sosuke.com/ so it's okay

    best 2 Choices are

    GBA Only
    M3 Lite Perfect (Has a GBA Shell)
    EZ-Flash IV (Phat)

    NDS Slot 2
    EZ Flash IV Lite Deluxe Offers ram support
    M3 Lite Perfect

    Expansion
    EZ Flash IV Lite Deluxe Offers ram support
    EZ Flash 3 - in - 1 (RAM + Rumble + Rom's)
    Ewin 2 - in - 1 (RAM + Roms)

    Those are your best choices

    What's the dif between expansion and NDS slot 2?
    also, do you happen to know if the pokemon will have its time fuction thing fixed in the ezflash IV LIte?(the real time function with the battery leaking fixed)

    I i figured out the dif [​IMG],
    One can support itself while the other relies on the slot one. So... Can anyone possible tell me if the EZIV deluxe lite have that real time function that allows you to avoid the internal battery leakage when you use backup games such as pokemon ruby and saphire?
    Does the EZV 3 in one have such feature?

    Have you tried Ruby and Saphire? Does the battery leak? P.S. Those who do have ez flash 3 in 1 or the IV lite deluxe, do you happen to know how long the batteries in it last?

    m3 lite perfect for those that want ZERO patching of ROMS and ZERO slowdown.

    patching etc... like the rest of us use the EZ Flash IV.

    (ToP Has always been laggy correct? on the real cart)

    Mainly only 1 Card that ever had slowdowns was the SuperCard SD (not sure if was rumble or the other version)

    Hmm...So only the m3 perfect has the clock? Is it limitless or is there like a lifespan with the battery? So....the main dif between the EZFlash IV and the m3perfect is that...one doesn't have to patch and the clock. If that is the case, I guess I'll get an m3 lite then [​IMG] b/c I want perfect gba gaming with pokemon ^^(The patching was just a plus but I don't care about it that much -.-)

    lifespan on cell batteries are about 2 to 3 years in working electronics. uses in like watches are about 5 to 6 years.

    it varys from device to device some shorter in life or longer, depends on the application.

    that pretty much sums it up. unfortunately some people want exact numbers when the battery will last. the answer to that is "depends on the user"

    it is like asking how long someone will live. that depends on the person.

    Ok, thanks for all your replies. I got what I needed [​IMG]
    For Real Time Clock:for the pokemon games and no patching(M3 Lite)
    Strictly for GBA and your not bother by the RTC(EZIV Lite)
    Hope that clarifies for future searchers ^^
