    I recently bought a DSTWO, and I'm loving it, but one of the things that bothers me is that I can't seem to find a way to use the ram expansion that came with my M3Real to run GBA through the slot-2 on my lite. Is there a way to get GBA games running natively with the M3Real ram expansion on a DSTWO?

    The M3 Ram only works with M3 Cards as far as I know since I have never gotten mine to work with any other cards other than my M3 Real.
    As well I don't think the Supercard Two uses or has the option to use GBA packs, unless there was an update I missed

    I actually was able to kinda figure it out, since GBA exploader recognizes the M3 expansion. The only problem I'm having now is figuring out how roms are booted, as I just get to a blank screen that says this on top:

    [/] 0 games

    Any help would be appreciated. I currently have all my GBA games in a folder named /GBA

    Was just going to post a topic about this. Been out of the loop for about a year and I'm sad to read that the M3 is pretty much useless now so I'm planning on buying a DSTwo soon and would like to play GBA games natively on my DSLite. [​IMG]

    Your post is kinda confusing to me, but I use Rudolph's GBA Exploader and it works fine for booting GBA roms on my EZFlash 3in1, I think it has M3 support also.

    The problem I'm having is how to use GBA exploader. When I boot it, my top screen says "[/] 0 games". What I want to know is, how do I change the directory so I can pick a game, and how to I start a game with it?

    Also, the site that normally hosts YSMenu (usay.jp) seems to be offline at the moment. If someone has a link to a YSMenu download, that would be great.

    1-download YSMENU and put it on your microsd
    2-run ysmenu on your dstwo and go to the directory you have the gba roms
    3-press A on the gba rom you want to play and it should boot
    enjoy

    YSMenu doesn't seem to be in its usual spot on Yasu's site. Does anyone happen to have a Link to the download (on Yasu's site or otherwise)?

    I didn't think YSMenu worked on the DSTwo

    It doesn't load roms, but it should just run.

    Also it's against the rules to upload pre-complied

    I don't think so.

    DSTT community uses pre-compiled YSmenu, M3 as well. That shouldn't be any problem. It's November 2010, you know..?

    Yeah, YSMenu won't load roms on DSTWO, but it loads GBA roms perfectly. Besides, why even bother using YSMenu for DS games when DSTWO has perfect compatibility.

    Also, sorry about the upload. You can remove it if you want to.

    But it is still not allowed on this site and should be removed.

    It'd shouldn't be against the rules. Yasu hasn't paid ysmenu any mind for years now. It's not like he'll get pissed and stop working on it. Interesting note this does load GBA roms

    I couldn't agree more, but I am just trying to keep him out of trouble.
