    How do these work on flashcards? Don't they require special carts with sensors in them?

    Thats what I thought. I recall hearing something about an .ips patch for WW:T that let you use L&R in place of the tilt sensors. I also recall hearing of its suckage, but I could be wrong.
    Quick google search found this: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=255...st&p=334743

    There's a patch somewhere for Boktai that allows you to manually adjust the sun level in-game.

    You can run most such games, just not exactly as intended since flash carts usually don't contain the needed hardware.

    I'd imagine that most of the fun would be lost when using such mods as the one for WW:T.

    Yep, there are .ips patches for both games, but there really is no point in playing Wario Ware Twsisted using the L and R buttons. It's a really fun game, you should just go buy it.

    Unfortunatly I just unloaded the last of my cash on the flash card. [​IMG] I did try playing WW:T with the L&R buttons. Its still a great game. As soon as I get the cash I'm going to buy the real deal so I can enjoy the full experience.

    I think I'll order it next week once I get paid. Great game. I've already beaten WW Advance and WW Touched. Both very good games. I still need to get the ones for the Wii and the GC.

    I never recall a SINGLE WW:T patch using L and R it uses the Left and Right on the Dpad and B to do fast motions

    and the patch is pretty dam good i love it anyway

    And for Boktai It's L + left/right to increase/decrease the sun

    Patch's available here

    tried it last night, couldnt even get past the first boss because the dpad cant move the fast...

    the L+R patch is really bad
    glad I own the real thing

    I made a mistake. I had only seen it [the post] briefly. No need to jump on a newbie.

    True, its nowhere near as good. Same with the Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble GBC game too.

    Its a shame that Europe didn't get those two (mine are import), Nintendo said that it was because the material was banned for export or something, even though that horrible Yoshi tilt game was released afterwards.

    The patch is okay, the game is still fun to play but it messes with the difficulty of the minigames. Some are really, ridiclulously easy with the tilt hack, whereas others that are easy on real hardware are a nightmare, especially ones that require ramping up the tilt level. The worst one is that first boss, although it is possible with some persistence.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Having tried both it really is worth trying to get hold of the real cartridge. With a sensor it's a completely different game. And nothing beats the novelty of turning your GBA into a steering wheel. [​IMG]
