FAS1 v1.5
Flashes twice as fast as previous version
%5B1820%5Dfas11.png

A new version of Smiths/newbie's utility for flashing GBA ROMs to the old Flash Advance cartridges from a slot-1 flashcart. Significant update, as flashing speed has been halved (down to 9.5s/meg), along with support for GBAFRAME.BMP being added. Download and usage instructions below.

[title:Usage Instructions]1) FAS1flasher.nds can be put wherever you launch homebrew from on your Slot-1 Device.

2) GBA ROMs (with extensions .gba [games] and .bin [Pogoshell] should be placed in a subfolder called "GBA" on your Slot-1 Device.

3) Launch FAS1Flasher.nds and you'll be presented with a menu on the bottom screen showing GBA ROMs found on your Slot-1 Device.

4) Selecting a title in the bottom menu will present you with on-screen information about the file, along with an estimated writing time.

5) Press "Start" to begin flashing the file (currently it flashes it at the first position of the FlashAdvance cartridge (offset 0). Later versions may let you change the starting position to create a multi-rom cartridge. Honestly, you should be using PogoShell for multi-rom compilations anyway.

could you update to point out that I go by "newbie" here? Until there's any easy "change nick" for forums, I have to use my old account I signed up for ages ago before I began programming a lot.

And F2A support could be added... I know the source is out there (see the site for ucon64's source). Just need a F2A owner to get bored and add the routines should an F2A be detected!

Thanks!

    On screen keys would be cool if the rubber ever fails
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I feel like at that point might as well go emulation lol
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One of those RG things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Some people just like using original hardware for the hobby point of it
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    You can easily buy replacement buttons but it's a good fall back
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    on screen keys would be cool but the gba screen is pretty tiny though :(
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I'd rather use emulation but it's cool regardless again the main point of the Touchscreen isn't just for buttons but for menu options
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    would be way better for menu options
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    although I have huge doubts anyone would be able to make homebrew that would give support for the touch screen
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    then again theres still people who develop games on systems as old as the nes for fun

    (
    micromages is amazing btw)

    I doubted 360 emulation would be possible

    yet here we are seeing ps4 and even some (very experimental
    ) ps5 emulation
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Ps5 emulation? Why
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I always thought Saturn emulation would straight up be impossible
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Just the atchiture is insanely complex
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That's why it annoys me when people rant about things being impossible when it comes to software some things should just be focused on more than others
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    because they want to flex their insane developer skills ofc
