    I got my DSTWO several days ago, and I tried out the new gba emulator plugin.
    The first thing I noticed is that the game doesnt seem as responsive as it did when I used my GBA expansion pack with an m3 real card (sakura).

    Now is my question; is there a way to run gba files without emulating them (using the gba expansion pack) in SCDSTWO?
    If not, is there some setting that I can change that causes this slower reactions?

    yep: here

    It's SLOT-2 GBA

    Edit: actually, I'm not sure if the M3 expansion pack will work, but it's worth a try

    You can also raise the CPU frequency in the GBA emulator's settings, it makes games run smoother at the cost of draining more battery

    Also, turn the frame skip to 0, and keep it on automatic

    SLOT2_GBA is meant to boot a real game or flash card.
    The expansion pack I use is for the slot1 card to load it into the slot2 ram.
    So if I start SLOT2_GBA, nothing happens.

    Thanks for your help though.

    Unless GBA Exploader supports M3 GBA, which I'm pretty sure it doesn't, you are left with no choice but to use M3 DS.

    the m3 team made rudolph remove support for the m3 expansion packs. i don't know if he ever added it back in. you can probably find an old version of gba exploader that supports it but it won't have the latest bug fixes or gba save patches.

    the scds2 only supports the 3in1 from what i remember. although to be honest i don't have an m3 expansion or the ewin expansion to test with when i wrote the review.

    That one is for using it on M3 DS as slot 1 with EZ-Flash 3in1 as slot 2.

    OP concern is if he or she can use SCDS2 to flash M3 GBA Expansion Pack.

    As far as I recall, M3 support was only ever removed for Slot-1, but I usually use my 3in1 with all non-M3 cards, and I am not sure that I even have the latest version.

    My M3 Perfect SD has always worked in Exploader, not sure what you're talking about (in fact, I was just using it to play Metroid Fusion yesterday). At the very least it definitely works on whatever the last version was. Actually, on my DSTwo I have it set as a plug-in, so it's nice and easy.
