    Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Anyway, I've been trying to getthe Opera browser running with my M3 Real and GBA expansion card. Everytime I try to run it I get the please insert the memory expansion into slot 2 error. I did run the patch and I can tell it worked because the title screen is different, but I still can't do anything. The GBA expansion card seems fine and can load games okay though.

    I get the same error as you, exact same error. I used the patch that was available on GBAtemp.

    im guessing that herein lies your problem. you need a ram pack to run web browsers, not a gba expansion pak.

    yes, indoubitably there is ram in a gba expansion pack. but why would the m3 team bother making separate rumble, ram, and gba expansion packs if (ramexpansion)=(gbaexpansion)

    As far as I'm concerned, they only make the GBA expansion, the Rumble and the Rumble RAM. The Rumble RAM is pretty much the GBA expansion pack (which is a RAM pack) and the Rumble pack in one pack.

    Thanks.

    Which file did you use exactly? I just tried "Opera Browser (E) slot 2 RAM PATCH PACK - TRIFORCE" and still got the same error.

    Okay stupid question, but I don't have to set the GBA pack to RAM mode like I had to with the 3in1 do I?

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I would also think that if the Rumble RAM Pack ($7.00) did indeed combine the functions of the GBA Expansion Pack ($22.50) and the Rumble Pack ($2.00), it would be more expensive than either of them, or at least cost as much as the GBA Expansion Pack.

    Yeah. I just found out the Rumble RAM doesn't have enough RAM for GBA games. My mistake.

    ^^ do games/applications requiring a ram expansion work on a gba expansion pack then?

    Hmm. Well, someone from another forum posted about him not being able to get Triforce to work and got it to work with another patch. I've never tried myself so I'm not really sure.

    Try another patch anyway. Maybe only some people have problems with the Triforce patch?

    the m3 Real, GBA expansion pack is just a stripped down m3 lite perfect

    so if you can't find what you're looking for, try the IPS patch for that cart [​IMG]

    Thanks, but that was the one I originally used. It's just another variation of the Triforce patch on GBAtemp. I guess I'll try the patch for the m3 lite perfect.
