    I cannot seem to get gba roms working with gba exploader. I keep getting a white screen after the gameboy logo. Please can anyone offer any advice.

    My slot 1 card is a M3DSS and i'm using an ezflash v 3 in 1. I can play snes games with SNEmulDS and i've found no errors using psram test.

    Please help! Thanks in advance.

    Most of your issues are answered in the 3in1 sticky in this section or the first link in my sig.

    Thanks, but i read the sticky before i posted and i still couldn't get it to work.
    I think the problem may be the battery. If the battery was the problem, then should SNEmulDS not be working?

    EDIT: I've read around the internet that people with battery problems can play the roms but not save. But i cant play the roms at all. ps. i've had the ez flash 3in1 for a year now and it only stopped working when i fortmatted my memory card.

    Have tried the following games. I've never been past the gameboy logo.

    f-zero maximum velocity
    mario kart super circuit
    doom
    super mario advance 2
    doom 2
    pokemon fire red/leaf green
    donkey kong country 3

    f-zero maximum velocity - SRAM_V111 (256Kbit)
    mario kart super circuit - FLASH_V124 (512Kbit)
    doom - EEPROM_V120 (4Kbit)
    super mario advance 2 - EEPROM_V122 (64Kbit)
    doom 2 - EEPROM_V120 (4Kbit)
    pokemon fire red/leaf green - FLASH1M_V103 (1024Kbit)
    donkey kong country 3 - EEPROM_V124


    These you will likely have to manually SRAM patch:
    doom
    super mario advance 2
    doom 2
    donkey kong country 3

    These, you probably got a dirty rom made to run on something else:
    f-zero maximum velocity
    mario kart super circuit
    pokemon fire red/leaf green

    In which case you would have to find a better source.
    If you got a game manager, turn off the gba auto-SRAM patching or stop using it to transfer gba games.

    thanks mate. i'll see if patching/downloading from another source helps

    EDIT: Tried downloading from another source + i patched doom and super mario advance 2. still nothing.

    Use EZ4Client to SRAM patch the roms.
