    Hi everyone,
    I'm thinking about buying an EZ Flash IV GBA Flash Cart, but before I purchase it I have some questions. If someone could answer them I would very much appreciate it. Here they are:
    Can I put multiple roms on it? If so, can I put 2 of the same game on it?
    Do I need to put save files on it?

    Thanks,
    Marugi

    Yes.
    Yes if you rename the second one.
    Save files are created by the games but you can put some yourself as well.

    Thank you for your quick reply. I was also wondering if the EZ Flash 3 is better than than the EZ Flash 4.

    The original EZ3 ( http://s186.photobucket.com/user/trikon000/media/gbatemp/ez3.jpg.html ), quite possibly depending upon how you feel about needing windows XP and not being able to chuck a new ?SD in when something goes wrong. If you can find one today at a reasonable price then you are doing very well. Otherwise they are much like the EZ4 but have real time clock, a functioning cheat engine and savestates (not great but not worth dismissing either). Indeed if you can get a working one for cheap from a friend/someone that does not know what they have then you could probably resell it and finance another flash kit.

    The EZflash 3 in 1 ( http://wiki.gbatemp.net/w/images/thumb/0/08/3in1-1.jpg/350px-3in1-1.jpg ). This is an expansion pack aimed at use with a DS slot flash cart on the DS, you will probably only be able to find the DS lite version today though a simple case mod to allow it to fit means you can use it on a DS as well. Technically it can work with a GBA (just write something to NOR) but it is very annoying if you want to swap between games. Oh I suppose it has rumble as well, not that much uses it. If you have a DS slot cart though then it will allow you to play just as many games -- everything that is not a supercard or team cyclops clone of the same will play basically everything.

    The orange thing I linked up originally. Yeah if you can take having to use XP and the other things I mentioned. Even if not I can see you flipping one for $100 or so with relative ease, more than enough to sponsor a DSTwo and something else.

    The 3 in 1. It plays all the same games and is usually cheaper, however it barely functions as a standalone cart where the EZ4 is designed for it. Personally I like such things to be standalone, if you just want to play games on a DS or DS lite in hardware then go ahead.

    The EZ4 probably would not have stood up in the GBA era, give or take the ability to use mini/microSD, but it is a great way to play GBA games and probably the best way (again I like standalone) to do it today if emulation is not your thing.

    Yeah, I think I'll buy the Ez Flash IV. I found this website and I'm just wondering if I should buy it from here.
