    I'm thinking to buy an EZ-Flash IV Deluxe (I'm fine with 2nd hand too) for just the GBA features. I do, however, want to make use of trained ROMs (yeah, I'm that lame). I have owned a G6 Lite before, and trained ROMs crashed nearly all the time, didn't even get past the intro. How's the EZ-Flash IV Deluxe performing regarding this?

    Please test some trainers for me. No Frills has quite a big archive of them. Patching can be done with GBATA or your favorite .ips patcher. Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    On a side note, how's the quality of the MicroSD slot on EZ-Flash IV Deluxe?

    I can test them on my EZ4lite (they use the same software so the test should be valid).
    I have only tried a few trainers and I recall they were pretty good:
    Random assortment of roms and trainers, I have not got the time or desire to do extensive tests so this is boot and play for a few mins (aside from advance wars 2, I got sidetracked):
    All the roms I use are no-intro verified which may place these tests at odds with introed releases (which some trainers are designed for).
    Ace Combat (U) -fine, a fine game as well.
    Advance Wars 2 (E) -fine, trainer seems to have issues with more than 1 opponent.
    Ninja Cop (E) -flawless
    Earthworm Jim 2 (U) fine
    Sega Smash Pack (U) all the I tried, fine
    Zoids Legacy (U) fine.

    Oh and http://gba.dellicious.de/trainer.php?s=n&o=asc&d= usually has some trainers but it seems the site is down.
    http://www.advanscene.com/ has a bunch too.

    Now if you will excuse me Ninja Cop calls. Name any more trainers in paticular you want me to try and I will test them, the intro "trouble" or just a plain bad trainer aside I doubt there will be a problem though.

    Bear in mind there is cheat support and GABsharky as well.

    Woo, thanks for the very useful post, FAST6191! I really appreciate your efforts in trying them for me. Btw, I knew that gba.dellicious.de site, just couldn't find the URL anymore, thanks for that.

    Looks like all GBA trainers work just fine. Well, since you asked for some particular ones; here's my little list:

    Super Mario Ball
    Drill Dozer
    Dragonball Advanced Adventure
    Mario vs Donkey Kong
    Super Mario Advance 4

    With 'the intro "trouble"' you mean corrupted intro graphics, I assume?

    Oh, I thought GABSharky was dead/never worked? And the 'cheat support', how does it work? G6 Lite had some kind of 'golden' shit that patched some intro on the ROM that made it crash 9 out of 10...

    Oh and.. (now I'm really getting lazy) does Dipstar work on EZIV as well?

    I will test the requests later (my useless body demands food).

    Trouble just means some trainers were designed for fairly corrupted roms (some intros in a bid to avoid removal went to some fair lengths) which means that when I come and use the unmodified rom things get overwritten that should not and it just plain does not work.

    Dipstar does not work unfortunately, I see you already found cracker's trainers though:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=40825
    Emulation and save editing can take care of a lot as well.

    GABSharky development does seem to have halted (and the site seems to have packed in)
    That is not much of a problem though:

    Guide to it all and a copy of gabsharky:

    Normal cheats are handled at the time you burn the rom and are somewhat similar to the G6 cheats except more stable, have a read of the EZFlash wiki and threads on sosukes forum for more (links in my signature).

    Thanks, I'll have a good read.

    I'm currently doubting to buy either a cheap 2nd hand SC Lite for use as RAM Pak (not just Opera, homebrew as well), or EZ-Flash IV Deluxe as proper GBA flashcard, and possible RAM Pak - I see cory1492 is trying to make an Opera patch for EZ-Flash, so I'm gonna wait and see what will happen with that.
