    Hey guys.

    I really just want a card that'll work alongisde my Acekard 2i so I can play GBA games. I haven't any knowledge of the best GBA flashcard to pick up, but someone pointed me in this direction.

    I've heard of the 3-in-1 but I've also heard bad things. :\

    Is something like this easy to set up/use? The Acekard was incredibly easy and quick to get working and I don't want something I have to fiddle with for ages. Either way, anything that can be figured out by tutorial is good enough for me.

    And is there anywhere in the UK that sells these online?

    Its pretty simple. Just shove it up your slot 2 becasue AKAIO natevely supports it.

    Yup.
    The AKAIO menu natively supports the 3in1, you put GBA roms on the Acekard's memory, insert the 3in1 in slot 2, and boot the GBA roms like you would the NDS roms.

    You can also write the roms to the 3in1' s NOR memory, to make it act like a real GBA game, which is necessary for 32mb roms.

    Hm, they seem okay but who knows.

    On the other hand RealHotStuff do free shipping worldwide I think? And it works out a little cheaper but I don't know whether anyones had much experience with this product from them, or how long it takes to get here.

    Ah, actually, I don't think RHS is free shipping. (from checking.)

    But GadgetGear seem sort of legitimate.. aside from the lawsuit stuff anyway.

    Yeah, I just found out, heh.

    Thanks though. I might go for GadgetGear at a risk, but I don't know how much of a problem there is with fake EZFlash cards...

    Alternatively you could go to SHoptemp which GBAtemp's sister site. BUt they ship from Hong Kong but the prices are pretty good

    The shipping rates from Shoptemp seem to be just fine for free shipping, they usually hit around the two week mark.

    It may be Hong Kong based but it should be perfectly safe to order from Shoptemp.
    Plus their 3in1 is only $20 (£13.89) which is a pretty good price.

    Yeah, I noticed that one [​IMG]

    If I have the patience I suppose I could go for it (and they do Paypal, which is even better). If there's been no problems, perhaps I should.

    Any idea whether the $2.00 registered Air Mail gets there any quicker?

    Registered airmail is the same as free Hongkong airmail, it just gives you a tracking number.
    It usually takes about 2 weeks for most people, but can take longer.
