    Hello guys, i hace acouple of questions about the EZ Flash Omega, I hope you can help me.
    I have seen that the card has a soldered battery that I imagine os usted for for the clock in certain games (eg Pokemon Gold). When the day comes when the battery is dry out, could the clock be modified each time the gba is turned on so that it allows you to continue playing games that require a clock? (With working events)

    On the other hand, does it work with all games at 100% speed, or is there one that suffers lag or slowdown?

    And finally, do you know where to buy it at a good price today (in Spain)?

    Thank you very much to all! And sorry for my bad english!

    Any lag or slowdown present on the Omega would also be present in the original game, same for any GBA slot flash cart that is not a supercard or clone thereof.

    Yes if the battery goes and you don't care to replace it you should be able to set the time manually each time -- no game runs in the background as it were like modern mobile phone stuff and instead they just grab the time each time they are booted and the game reacts accordingly when it loads the save. By the way pokemon gold is a GBC game so technically the emulator that runs the GB/GBC titles will be using it instead, however it is much the same concept really and the actual GBA pokemon games will work as described just now.

    Afraid I have not kept up with Spanish, or indeed European, resellers of late. A lot of the Spanish ones closed a few years back (got some very nice deals for myself then) and possibly after a court case there but I am not 100% on that.

    Thank you so much for your answer.Thanks to your answers I have decided to buy the flashcart through eBay. Let's see if I get there soon and I can enjoy my childhood games again!

    Thank you!
