    Our friend Lord Graga created a simple but useful rom to test out if the GBA SP LCD has "dead" pixels on it when you buy it.
    Dead pixels are struck on a fixed color and they never change.
    By pressing the A button you may circle between different colors, thus making easier to spot the broken pixels.
    You may download the rom HERE

    Good work, Lord Graga! Sometimes a simple solution is the best one.

    Now, if I had an SP or a flashcard, I'd be using it. As it stands, I'll just support it.

    ...and download it. ...[sets A to autofire] oooohhh... look at all the colors.... [grabs a glowstick and stops typing]

    -Tempest out.-

    In the guarantee should be written that the screen can have up to 3 not working pixels BEFORE they have to change it...
    up to 3 pixels you should keep it "as is", until you find a kind shop emplyee....

    bye!
    p.s. not on the GBA SP or GBA guarantee, on the guarantees of the general TFT screen devices!

    Don't worry gunner, i got my GBA SP this morning and after filing a little, the 512 Xtreme cart work very well.
    I've filled it slowly with a cutter and look at the result:

    There should be a new version of this out at some time, with a title screen and such. For pics of it look here.

    If you guys really like GB SP's this much then, you may like this.

    I also request a mention in the nfo when the new version is released.
