    The Ewin new poroduct for NDSL is a GBA Expansion Pak, it must be share with a slot 1 memory including both rom and save files. For Example: if you are using a R4, the storage should be the microSD in the R4 card

    Outlook

    Total 5 colors : Black, White, Navy, Pink ,Light Blue

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The box is similar to the Rumble Pak

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cool looking

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Perfect size for NDSL

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Use

    There will be a *.nds file for slot 1 card Run, when there is a update, just replace the nds file is OK, its easy to use

    [​IMG]

    Main menu, Simple Simple and Simple, Factory wil provide more cool menu later as they said


    [​IMG]

    Upper Screen

    [​IMG]

    Lower Screen

    [​IMG]

    When you load the GBA rom first time, Ewin gba loader will patch the clean rom itself, no need computer converter, all run at the NDSL, just copy and paste the GBA Rom to the memory will be OK

    [​IMG]

    Patch always need 8-50 secs, (normally 13-18 secs), loading always need 2-20 secs (normally 5-8 secs), Only the first time run need pacth, no patch will be needed at the second time

    [​IMG]

    Others



    Use hacked EUR NDS Browser, it will be change into a ram pack

    Link play function nearly 80% works perfect, development team promise will bug fix as soon as possible for this function
    (Link play mean GBA card link with NDS card)
    The use of link play is Press "Y" for your GBA rom and system will return to R4 main menu, user can choose the NDS file to run

    No cheat code and reset supported because of the hardware cost.

    Conclusion


    Nice price for added gba value for NDSL

    Nowadays only support R4 slot 1 card, development team promise to support other card with DLDI after all bug fix.

    Save will be copy to slot 1 card memory at the next time, remember to restart the expansion pack loader if you are not plan to play at a short time

    One of the developer of the Ewin Expansion pak is the developer of EZ Flash 1 - Borden, who works for GBA scence for a long long time and named Father of GBA card in China

    GBA compatiable already 99.99%

    Impressive. The NOR and PSRAM modes on 3-in-1 can be confusing for the starters but this seem to be really easy to use. Does it have rumble though?

    Ah true that =/ Any idea about the price ? I already have the 3-in-1 but if it's a really good deal, I might get this one too.

    I want one of these, it looks loads better than the EZ-Flash 3 in 1... No wondering about which patcher to use, which flashing mode to use etc...

    Great!

    This is just what I've been looking for!

    The reason i haven't got a EZ Flash 3-in-1 is because it is confusing to use.


    What is the price?, when can we buy one?

    It costs about HK$100, lets say US$12-15.

    How does it looks loads better? It just fits like 0.5 mm more flush, and it lacks rumble.

    Still, it comes in all color I guess.

    You can't beat eWin's build quality though, their Rumble Pak and Dummy Cards were the best unofficial casings I've seen, and I've seen and used M3 Lite, SuperCard Lite Rumble, R4DS, 3in1, G6 Lite and DS-Xtreme.

    I want the yellow DSL [​IMG] . The GUI is a little out dated, but as long as it does it job [​IMG] . I'm with you on that jelbo, I used to have an EWIN rumble pak. It fitted into the GBA slot perfectly and blended in really well with my Black DSL

    No, but it might cost more when you need to import it.

    borden aka the guy who left f2a owners in the lurch (not sure if my rumor detector picked that one up correctly)? What ever happened to the EZFA2 anyway, I don't seem to see any of their original support sites anymore (nor any real public code releases so others could pick up where they left off, just like F2A people did). I still prefer my GBALoader aka GBALdr anyway [​IMG]

    Somehow, I feel really, really lucky that I didn't buy the EZF 3in1 yesterday. Okay, so the GUI looks basic but then again it's not as I'll be looking at it all day. Wonder what sites have it?

    Any realtime clock? (seems unlikely due to added expense)
