    Hey!

    I posted quite a while back wondering what would be the best GBA Flashcart to get, some said M3 Perfect, and others the EZ Flash IV, so I've been searching (a lot!) and have started noticing the words "Out of stock" or "Out of production" quite alot also.

    So! Can ANYONE post a link to purchase either a M3 Perfect (One with 32Megs RAM which is suitable for GBA) or the EZ Flash IV. Also note that they must ship to the UK at least, currency isn't really a issue.

    The link i had saved for an EZ Flash IV has had the product removed.

    Or, if you can recommend a flashcart which is similar, then go ahead. I'm not really bothered about RTC anymore. Long as the game compatibility is quite high and there aren't any slowdowns ingame, that'll be fine. A bonus would be a built in cheat system.

    Did a quick Google and came up with this shop:

    http://www.realhotstuff.com/ezflash-size-p-294.html

    There are for sure more shops out there offering this fantastic flashcard. FAST6191 is very knowledgeable of the whole EZ scene and he probably knows some more shops that sell it.

    I have the EZ Flash IV myself, bought it 2 years ago and still play it regularly, played some Fire Emblem yesterday on it! Very good purchase, hope you find one soon.

    I'd go with the EZ Flash V. It's a good sloid card and it will support up to a 4gb minisd if you can find a nonsdhc. Check this out though http://www.deveno.com/products/ELink.htm You can still buy an elink. It has RTS, supports cheats, game guides, soft reset, even sleep mode. Not bad.

    drivers and app for elink are here: http://elink2.cn/

    It is at the very bottom.


    If you have Vista or windows 7, you got a 50/50 chance if you got the 32bit version running. If you got the 64bit versions of Vista and windows 7, forget it the drivers are not made to run on those systems period.

    You want to have an XP box to use ANY gba flashcart that has drivers.

    If you are running XP in virtualbox on a windows 7 64bit system, your in luck, you can actually get the thing to work in a VM.

    Otherwise you will have to just get a EZ-Flash IV.

    realhotstuff don't ship to the uk anymore, not for a LONG time.

    anyone know where i can get a EZ-flash IV? shoptemp and other well known websites don't sell them anymore so it is hard to find now, i would prefer a UK website but any other website make sure they are import tax friendly, i tried to find a seller via google but all i can find is dodgy sellers that have no reviews about them, it makes it real hard to find anything.

    This might be something I should look into. I was thinking of getting another card foy my dslite, but my ds supercardtwo
    should be enough for a bit. I might get one of these to mess around with. Not sure which, but I'm thinking there both good.

    It is not great but it works as good as any of the old NOR flashcarts. It is like using a F2A with lots more NOR, slightly better cheat implementation. There is no RTC if your planning to play pokemon.

    Fair enough, I have an M3 perfect, so I doubt I am going to find anything as good/better. I am just sort of wanting to collect these stupid things. >.> I am wierd.

    Cant beat that. I like collecting myself, allthough I dont think I have that nintendo 64 adapter.
    I'm going to have to get me something here soon. I'm debating on another cart for my ds lite, but I think
    a gba cart would be nice. I put a modchip in my sega saturn sometime ago. I have some games that require
    the saturn adapter. Dont really remember much but I think it was a ram cart or something similiar to what this nintendo 64 cart is. I'll have to track that down. The other day I came across that adapter that hooks up to the gamecube and lets you play
    your gba games on tv. $5 at some random yard sale. Works great, although the screen is a little
    blurry. I'm thinking cause gameboy advance games weren't really made to play on your tv ya know.
