    We advise NOT using it on any form of EZ4 though it supposedly has support. It risks bricking the EZ4.​

    GBA ExpLoader 0.53
    Support for M3 DS Real GBA Expansion

    New version of Rudolph's GBA ExpLoader utility for GBA expansion packs. Significant addition in this version is support for the M3 GBA Expansion Pack (the one that comes with the M3DS Real bundle). Download and other changes below.

    So what's the function of this thingy?
    Can you now run the GBA expansion pack with any slot1 cart (that has DLDI)?

    Hey, I haven't been keeping track of this app... How is it compared to the original Rudolph's 3 in 1 tool? I have that right now, and I'm perfectly fine with it, but multiple saves would be nice to have.

    So, anyway, what features does it not have/are broken that 3 in 1 tool has, what games don't work on it that work on 3 in 1 tool, and what features (other than multiple saves) does it have (for a 3 in 1 user) that the original doesn't?

    By the way, if this matters, I'm using an R4.

    Oh, and, sorry if there's already a comparison. I looked but couldn't find one.

    I think what you're looking for is "Rudolph's Slot-2 Backup something-or-other" If I do understand what GBAExpLoader does and what you want.

    i'm having trouble. how exactly do you disable the multisave? if someone could just copy and paste the text in the ini file that would be great.

    GBA ExpLoader copies gba roms to slot2 ram and launches them, I made a similar tool specifically for my M3SD but it should work for others, but at the moment it doesnt do any save patching so you cant save in any games.

    Support for more than the 3 in 1.
    Games can be loaded form any directory,not just from \gba
    Multiple saves.
    Automatic patching-no longer have to patch, it works with clean roms, including Famicom Mini/Classic NES.

    Classic NES series work now too? No kidding. I tried them before (not sure if I was using the 3in1 tools or GBAExploader) and I got the "game pak error" message. I guess I will give it a try with the newest version...

    I think that's where the patching info is stored.

    Last time I tried, it didn't support the Nintendo DS Browser official RAM. Would be nice to see it supported, but I don't think we'll see much games running on it, considering it only has 8MB of total memory. Most GBA games are bigger than that.
