    Cool! What are the changes? I can't test this too well yet as my 3-in-1's battery is dry. I can load games, but the thing won't save.

    Edit: changes are in the English readme:

    Fixed the bug of FLASH1M in DSTT GBA&EXPLORER 2IN1.
    Support FLASH1M in M3(SLOT2), G6(SLOT2) and GBA Expansion Pack.
    Fixed the Added auto header fix function.

    Hmmmm. Tried this on Supercard DS-One with the appropriate DLDI patch (and tried it once without the patch) and it hangs on the "Initialize...." screen.

    Huh? Why is that? [​IMG] Still because of the DLDI version of Sakura?

    Damn, that makes my life a lot harder [​IMG]

    Could it be that this protection was already in v0.57? Yesterday I tried to flash a rom to my 3in1, but it gave me a lot of problems...

    No, because he released 0.57 a month before the DLDI Sakura.

    Quick question guys.
    Haven't updated my ExpLoader in a while, wondering if he still kept the multi-save feature, and if he didn't, when I update will it carry the first save of every game over?

    I believe it's activated in an INI file that comes with it/generated with it. He implemented this a while ago. There used to be a version that always asked you if you wanted multisave, but now you can edit the INI to turn it on or off. I'm pretty sure he kept this feature in, but I cannot check as I have an M3 product, which he has locked out.

    Yes, there is a line in the INI that says something like "# no multisave". It's the last line of text in the INI file. To just use one save file, you take out the # symbol in that line. It disables the ability to have multiple saves, but it also automatically backs up and loads your saves for you without prompting you.

    Lets you play gba roms on the DS with a slot-one card... And an expansion pack of course.

    Good to hear he still updates this.

    FLASH1M support is more important than it seems.

    It's what Super Mario Advance 4, F-Zero Climax, and a few Pokemon games use.

    Rudolph has removed support for the M3 flashcard product lines including the iTouchDS, M3 Real and Sakura due to the M3 Team sending him threatening letters to remove all support for their flashcards.

    I think it was because of him making DLID ver of sakura that allowed use on all carts?

    I only really used gba cart dumper though
    I have v0.57 on my card as backup in case some game doesnt boot with the m3r, haven't found any yet though :0
    oh well
