    If anyone knows the answers to these questions, please let me know! Links to reference sources are very welcomed!

    Compression:
    1. what is the average % compression for a game that can be achieved with the G6?
    2. Can compressing the rom stop a game from working correctly?


    3. Can copying a game to the G6 with 'soft reset' enabled stop a game from working correctly?
    4. Once and for all!- Does the G6 save instantly to the cart, or is it temporarily stored before next load?
    5. Once and for all!- Does the G6 need to be charged on the usb (even for a one-off), or does it charge enough in the ndsl?


    Thanks a lot for your answers guys- please only respond if you're quite sure of waht you're saying!

    well, i don't know if i'm 'quite sure' of this...
    but when you save a game, turn off your micro & turn it back on...
    the g6 loader tells you it's processing data and you should NOT turn off the system.
    (so i did a check immediately afterwards)
    i turned off the system AFTER the data was processed & turned it back on and it just went straight into the g6 menu
    it didn't tell me it was processing data at all.

    with that, i strongly believe that the g6 temporarily stores it's information before the next load.

    i haven't had the g6 lite long enough to figure this one but most other flashcarts do require you to charge through usb. it's not a hard process... while you're charging your gba/gbasp/gbm/nds/ndsl at night, just pop in your g6 to charge in the usb. that way, you'll ensure that you have enough battery in both.
