    Haha that Nintendogs sticker looks harsh. I wonder, do these actually play the proper games?

    Where are the metal connectors on the carts? How can they play without them, since it's the connection from the cart to the ds?!

    It took them a lot longer then I expected.

    They should work in a DS like normal carts, the connectors are dark coloured not non-existant. Historically however pirate carts have bad bad issues with saving and so on.

    The worst part is they are usually put out by asian organised crime groups.

    I know I shouldn't say this but before I bought a flash cart for the GBA, I used to buy bootleg GBA games from stalls in Hong Kong. The snapping point was buying Advance Wars and Tactics Ogre and I was half way through both of them when... BAM. Save gone. On the bright side, I traded them into my local gaming store and got £50. And someone actually bought it when I noticed it wasn't on the shelf anymore. So there's someone, somewhere who's now frothing at the mouth due to their game not saving....

    I hope there will be some nice Hacked Games dumped, like it was with GBC/GB pirate cards. [​IMG]

    P.S. New Mario ava/sig!

    I'm being safe and sticking to the supercard, at least I know then I'm playing pirate games. I do buy the original carts if I like the game. I would be really pissed if I bought a pirate cart off ebay.

    There's something I've been wondering about when the GBA pirated games started appearing. Is it actually possible to buy once write blank GBA carts? Yeah I know it's better to buy an official flash cart and you can put any games you want on it as many times as possible but I was wondering how do the bootleggers create a once write cart?

    The reason why it took the pirates so long to come out with these kind of carts is because they were waiting for someone to develop something that could authenticate the device. The only devices that has managed to do that was the PassCard3 and the MaxMedia Launcher. So basically the pirates had everything ready...they just needed the key.

    My brother bought one of these for GBA, but most of the games were duplicates of each other and they didn't work properly. The store owner refused to take it back but he finally exchanged it for some shitty pac man game.

    My dad always used to buy me those X-in-one game carts from the Philippenes. They rocked. Yeah, some carts where full of copies about 8 or so games, but I actually did have a few with 200 some odd unique games on them. A lot of them weren't very good, but they usually did the trick if I had a few minutes to kill (there was some gae called Spanky's Quest or something that I was addicted to for awhile).

    i don't think it will be possible... with the old gb/gbc pirate cards you couldn't reflash them, they were read only i think? like a CD, you burn it and then you can't change the information that already is on the disc (unless it's a RW disc ;P)
