====== 3in1 Expansion Pack Tool V1.8 ====== By Rudolph This is a program for managing games, saves and features on the EZ-Flash 3in1 expansion cart. It allows GBA games up to 16MB to be run from PSRAM, so you no longer have to flash a game to NOR before you can play it. Soft reset is supported on the R4/M3 Simply (soft reset must be enabled in the R4/M3 game menu) and the DSLink. This allows rumble and browser support to be enabled without patches for these flashcarts. It also allows the game in PSRAM to be used for DSGBA linkage. English and Japanese languages are supported. If the DS is set to Japanese, the program will use Japanese. Otherwise, the program will be in English. ====== Setup ====== You may need to apply the DLDI patch for your flashcart before using this app. Version 1.8 is pre-patched for the R4/M3 Simply. Create a folder named "GBA" in the root of your memory card, and create a folder named "Save" inside the GBA folder. GBA backups go in the /GBA folder. Saves will be placed in the /GBA/SAVE folder. GBA frames are supported. The 3in1 ExpPack Tool will look for "gbaframe.bmp" in the /GBA folder and the /_system_ folder, in that order. Frames must be 8-bit or 24-bit bitmap files with a resolution of 256x192. Games with EEPROM and 512kbit Flash save types need to be patched with the EZ4 Client or GBATA. Games with 1024kbit Flash save types need to be patched with the EZ4 Client. ««« IMPORTANT »»» If you are upgrading from version 1.5 or earlier, you must back up your saves from the 3in1 with the old version before using 1.8. The method for managing SRAM has changed, so 1.8 cannot back up saves from old versions. When importing saves, make sure the file extension is ".SAV". If a save file does not already exist, a new one named "GameTitle GameCode.SAV" will be created automatically. ====== Usage ====== * Run "3in1_ExpPack_Tool.NDS". * L and R switch between the PSRAM, NOR and Rumble modes. The Rumble mode only shows up on supported carts. * Left and right on the d-pad scroll the game list one screen up or down. PSRAM Mode: (A) Load the selected game into PSRAM and run it. [start] Load the selected game into PSRAM and soft reset back to the flashcart menu. (only works on R4/M3 Simply and DSLink) Until the power is turned off or the 3in1 is removed from the system, the game in PSRAM will be used when switching to GBA mode or using DSGBA linkage. (B) Backup the save for the last game run from PSRAM. (X) Backup all 512k of SRAM to SRAM.BIN. (Y) Restore all 512k of SRAM from SRAM.BIN. Games up to 16 megabytes, with SRAM, EEPROM or 512kbit flash saves can be run from PSRAM. Games that are larger than 16 megabytes, and games that use 1024kbit flash saves must be flashed to NOR. NOR Mode: (A) Write the selected game to NOR. (X) Start the game in NOR. (B) Backup the save from the NOR game to a file. (Y) Restore the save for the NOR game from the save file. Rumble Mode: This screen has options for enabling rumble and the web browser RAM expansion. The options on this screen will currently only work with the R4/M3 Simply and the DSLink. Select an option and press (A) to enable that feature and soft reset back to the flashcart menu. The feature you enabled should now work for any DS game or app that supports it.
