    Heyyy whats up guys.
    Right, basically i was just wondering, can you play multi player with 2 EZ IV flash cartridges or 1 EZ flash and 1 game cart.
    I wanna play stuff like invader, final fight and street fighter with my pal. But he hasn't bought an EZ flash yet.

    I'm only asking because i haven't had a chance to test this yet, and a few things have popped up about people having trouble with roms linking .
    I also had issues with multi booting mario kart from a rom.

    SO if anyone here often plays multi player via GBA flashcart and can confirm that it works okay or not.

    That would be awesome.
    Thanks dudes.

    If your referring to this thing:

    This is called a Game Boy Advance Link Cable, not an EZ Flash link cable. The EZ-Flash IV doesn't use one. Buy one from a used videogame shop in your area or order one online from DX or some other place you like.

    Dude,
    Are you trolling?

    Now back to the matter at hand, has anyone tried multiplayer with an EZflash cart AND a GBA link cable.
    As in PLAYING MULTIPLAYER Via 2 GBA's with a EZ FLASH IV flash cart and a GBA LINK CABLE.

    Does this clear things up?

    thanks for the protip though, i didn't know what a link cable was -_-

    Are you too dense to realize that this is what you need to play multi-player with a GBA, regardless if you got a GBA flashcart or not.

    There have been some issues with games in the past when they alter parts of the ROM to do other things (hooks for soft reset and sleep patches as such).

    Usual protocol is to try as few patches as possible (no sleep, cheats or reset) and just the save and if you can get away with it then not that either. Also remember to try save patching with GBATA http://www.no-intro.org/tools.htm instead of EZ4client.

    It also seemed the EZ2 patches worked better than the EZ4 for reasons unknown and over the course of things

    Some have not worked but many have and if there is a game you especially want that is not among those give me a nudge and I will hopefully get one done.
