I've read several different guides about trying to identify real vs counterfeit cartridges, and yet I think I got duped anyway When looking at the front, everything seems ok to me, including that they both have what appears to be a factory imprint on the stickers. However, they both happen to be imprinted as 11, which for some reason seemed odd to me. Also, there is a stamp in the internal board. But there isn't the oval around the word Nintendo, and it doesn't have the little copyright at the end of the word Nintendo. I do not have the tri-screwdriver in order to open it up to see the actual board inside. The cartridges themselves were a little bit more snug when putting it into my GBA. On start up, it played the start up little scene, but when I hit start it showed me the controls of the game and a little intro about the game and little tips like to talk to everyone, blah blah blah. Then it just dove right into the game, not the menu of continue or start new game. I've tried to get some good pics and would really appreciate some opinions. Thanks in advance.
