    it keeps saying it cant load because its 32mb, i tried using ram expansion but it still wouldnt help

    also off topic, but whenever i open up usrcheat.dat on cheat code editor, it gets fucked up and tells me to send an error report

    Hit R, damn it, you're in PSRAM mode. You need NOR mode. The 3-in-1 has 16MB of PSRAM and 32MB of NOR.

    It was released on an ordinary 256Mb (32MB) GBA game cart.

    I thought it was 16MByte (128Mbit) until it gets translation patched it expands the rom size to 32MByte.

    Im almost sure thats the way it is.

    it plays fine on the 3 in 1 with the translation patch. switch to NOR like the other guy said and be done with it.

    And I'm entirely sure that you're wrong. Mother 3 was always a 256Mb/32MB game.

    From Where???
    the extensive documentation on the hack talks about how they had to do many things to keep it at the original 32meg size.
