    hey guys
    soon im going to be getting a gameboy micro 20th anniversary edition (dont ask how)
    so i wanted to get a flashcart for it
    i saw a few
    Ezflash iv
    supercard mini sd
    m3 minisd (quite expensive)
    i need real-time clock for pokemon
    and i need something with good ds and gba compatibility and something thats inexpensive

    supercard minisd is only $13.14 but i heard it has poor compatibility but it is still supported by the team
    ezflash iv has good compatibility but doesn't have realtime clock and it is not supported anymore
    m3 minisd has everything but is expensive and is not supported anymore

    so should i get a supercard minisd?
    how bad is the compatibility?
    and how much memory does it support because i have an extra 4gb micro sdhc and i will be using a minisd adaptor

    You should try and put the effort to get a M3 if you can, even used from another user if possible. You will be patching more likely if it is not a M3.

    I have a M3 perfect micro, which I got from gameyeaah back in the day.
    I have a M3 perfect CF and SD, I got those from liksang back in the day.

    liksang is pretty much dead and gameyeaah/ishopvideogame ran out a few months back.

    To my knowledge, there isn't any place left that sells the perfect. All your gonna find are the professional versions. which are only good for DS games.

    Has anyone bught the mdchip central one?

    http://www.modchipstore.com/NDS-Nintendo-M...i-SD-16374.html

    They have the wrong picture at the top of the listing, so I am a bit unsure that they would send me the right thing if I order one.

    Is it actually the Perfect one, and not the Pro?

    It doesn't install a lot of confidence...


    EDIT:


    I just found out, they seem to be a scam site:

    http://www.resellerratings.com/store/ModChipStore



    I thought it looked too good to be true... G6 Lites in stock, I don't think so....

    Would you be interested in the M3 Perfect CF edition? Shop01media.com has them for sale.

    http://shop01media.com/info.asp?ProductID=16228

    It's a Swedish store that will ship to the US. I bought a M3 Perfect SD from them a few months ago (they seem to be out of them) and had no
    issues. They accept credit cards via dotpay.com

    No issues.

    I bought a SuperCard Mini a couple years ago, and now the website I bought it from doesn't exist. I can only find them now on Chinese websites, but their payment options are not familiar to me.

    The SuperCard Mini has its flaws, but if you learn how to patch the roms correctly, they run just fine. It also has a good NES emulator that runs great. My main reason to get this card was that it's actual size of GBA cart, so it fits flush in the GB Micro. I just wish they oped for microsd, and made it black instead of clear-purple.

    Either way, it has transformed my GB Micro into the smallest gaming machine/NES, with a large library of games on hand wherever it travels. I wish some company would make a new one, realizing that there is a market for the item, but I doubt it would ever happen.

    If you never receive the cart it is not such a good deal...

    The site appears to be a scam... Customers don't seem to receive their orders

    That site has been on the bad vendor list for a while. Go ahead and try and buy from them.

    that would be a waste of money

    okay i think im getting this now

    supercard minisd is a good cart except it doesn't work with drop & play roms

    you have to patch the roms using the supercard patcher/thing to make the roms work

    is that the only problem with it?
    i dont mind patching roms

    about how long does it take to patch roms?

    because supercard minisd is the cheapest i have seen and the only one available, should i get it because i dont mind patching roms, i just want them to work?

    does anyone else have a supercard minisd?

    how long does it take to patch?

    whats your experience with it?
