    yeah sure because 1 - when i bought the g6 there was pokemon ruby on it and it had an game icon, when you flash a rom on the card with the g6 software you can see below that there is a possibility to add 2 shots (preview) but i cannnot add them no option will let you , and when you check out the flashcard you can see it makes a file like game xxx.gba and a file xxx.ico so i suppose it has to be the gamepreviw shot...when you flash a game it automatically adds a .ico file but it seems empty so i suppose there is a possibility to add some pictures but how that's the big? because when i take a screenshot i convert it to .ico and resize it and rename the same name as rom and flash it on the g6 it doesn't work...

    There is a program called pic_g6, it's made by Squitter, I found it in another forum but I don't remember where, so I uploaded it here:
    http://web.axelero.hu/wishcow/pic_G6.zip

    Extract it and put a 70x55 bmp file into the same directory, and type this into the command line: pic_g6.exe filename.bmp filename.ico, and it will make an ico file. Rename the ico to the same name as the rom and copy to the card.
