    There were more ique releases? Did not expect to see that one.

    For others that don't know ique is the Chinese brand that sells Nintendo hardware in China (complicated reasons for that one). Most probably know them for the iQue Player which did some N64 games, however they did have a DS model as well and a few others. The DS is slightly different on the hardware and firmware front (it has a larger chip and Chinese characters for pictochat). Technically the games are also region locked to it but most flash carts will bypass it and have done since.... 2005.

    GBA wise then the other day saw a release of some previously unknown GBA efforts

    Thank you very much for your hard work!

    If there was any possibility to address some irregular issues with saving features mentioned in this forum (GBC saves and also some of users mentioned GBA saves corruption), I would definitely had much more reasons to recommend my friends Omega over other flash-carts for GBA.

    Keep up the good work!

    Some never released GBA efforts. Article https://www.siliconera.com/2019/03/...-been-prototype-unreleased-chinese-gba-games/

    No exclusives, though among the list are Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, Kururin Paradise, Densetsu no Stafy 2, Densetsu no Stafy 1 and Tomato Adventure, none of which got official translations to English and at time of writing only Fire Emblem has a fan translation, though Kururin Paradise also has a menu/few bits translation (it is a puzzle game so pretty playable -- http://www.romhacking.net/translations/1170/ ) and Starfy is a platformer so playable enough without it. Don't know much about Tomato Adventure but it is an earlier effort from the same people that did the Mario & Luigi Series for the handhelds and a quick scan has it getting some decent reviews.

    @maniacnny I have the same problem:

    I bought three EZ Flash Omega. For all three I have the problem that when playing always freezes the image, noise sound and you can not press anything. Has happened so far with several GBA games (about 8 games). Only with a restart can you play again. I have already used various Micro SD cards, but everywhere the same error. I already formatted the micro sd cards several times. I use the last Kernel and I load rom only with clean boot. I have"test psram" and everything is ok.

    Dear developers, I want to share my observations. Now I am testing a new battery with your cartridge.
    Install the latest firmware. The game freezes, after the red indicator lights up (after 5-6 hours), after rebooting everything works well. If you connect the charger, the game works great without freezing for 10-12 hours. Maybe this is a problem with the power consumption of the flash cartridge? Or is it firmware? Because in firmware 1.02T, V3 there is no problem with freezing.

    same problem.

    I tried this method, but by the end of testing, when the battery of the gameboy is low, freezing still happens. This is a single freeze, and after reboot all working, but it still unpleasant.

    I would stay on firmware 1.02, but I like energy saving on firmware 1.05 (1 hour +)

    Help solve the problem please. I think others have this problem too.
