    My DSTT just came in yesterday, and all it had was the MicroSD card USB connector (looks like a a small USB stick on a string) and the DSTT card. What do I need those other 2 pak things for?

    This can help http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=69748

    You bought the entire package not needing the extra parts? You could have saved money if you didn't need them! The extra parts are GBA pack and Rumble pack. The rumble pack is for DS games that support vibration and the GBA pack lets you play game boy advance roms.

    Srsly you could have got the TTDS for 19$

    The Rumble Pak is a bit useless because not many games support it. [​IMG]

    The 2in1 GBA & Explorer pack is good though because you can play GBA games and have the RAM for the Opera Browser.

    Don't use the MicroSD adapter that was given with the DSTT because it's known to corrupt cards.

    How much was it for the entire thing?

    The only site I could find that had DSTT didn't have an option for extra paks...just SD cards if you wanted one, which I didn't because they were overpriced. Dw I ordered a microSD the same day...even though it's coming from China (21 days max to get it T_T)

    EDIT: @ IOwnAndPwnU: It was $20~30. If I don't use the adapter it comes with, then what do I use?

    You got a good deal. For only $10 more you got a rumble pack and the GBA+RAM expansion packs.

    He said he didn't get the extra paks but was thinking about buying them.

    Guess I misread. My bad.

    Get the EZFlash3in1 because it's better and its more supported I think.

    Yes, it's more supported. Whether it's better or not is a matter of opinion. It depends on whether you find the larger amount of the slow non-volatile NOR memory in the EZFlash 3-in-1 to be "better" than the larger amount of fast volatile memory in the eWin 2-in-1. There are advantages and disadvantages of each, particularly if you regularly play some of the larger GBA games.

    I hardly ever play GBA games because I can play DS Games.

    You should send your 2-in-1 to Smiths so that he can support it with AIO!

    But then I won't have a 2in1 to use! ANd I very much doubt he'll send it back to me after he's done with it. Why don't you send yours?

    Damn, can't post in the AIO thread because I really want that support. Also not posting there so they can see i don't just post for nothing.

    Smiths has already added eWin support back into AIO, so no need to send yours in now!

    IOwnAndPwnU, many of your posts are useful. The problem is that you post a LOT. Sometimes when I enter one of the forums, I'll see 15 topics which you've been the last person to post to. You should pick and choose which topics to respond to (only respond to the ones that nobody else has already responded to or that you can significantly add to).

    Then again, I've occasionally been guilty of over-posting, so I probably shouldn't talk.

    I try to post something useful. I don't post "I agree posts" without explaining my decision. Great, I'll re-download the thing. Just searched the Download area and there is only one 1.2 so I didn't download it again. I tried mt GBA games but they didn't work. It just got to the GBA screen and then froze. Where do I download it? Worst place to post this but I don't want to post in there too much (well not until for sure I have the eWin support).

    It will be included in the next release (which will be AIO 1.3 I assume).
