    The GBATemp SuperCard Review

    [​IMG]

    Thanks to Kick Trading I have reviewed another Game Boy Advance flashkit. This flashcart has a host of features from simply playing roms to watching movies and listening to music, it is certainly one of the more interesting contenders on the market. I'm sure many of you will be interested to see how it fairs. Be sure to check out the review for my verdict on the notorious SuperCard.

    Excellent review, but when I first saw it at the top of the page I thought it was gonna be the Neo Flash... [​IMG]

    Anyway, good review, seems very fair and balanced.

    Some very major positives and some very major negatives seems to pretty much sum up the SuperCard...

    super card software has been updated [​IMG] now 2.30 is released and can be downlaoded from the official site.

    one thing i want to know latest update is which games now run better now as no list is nowhere to be found on the website, all it says is that now games run better but which one?

    thankx

    thats a big problem with the official website, they never tell you what any of the updates do.

    Opium, could you please tell everybody about the GBA's battery while life using the Supercard? I hear it's... low.

    For reference, on my DS when the game goes red for ds games and i boot up the supercard. The lights still green.

    Thus batterlife for Supercard is longer then batterlife for ds games. [​IMG]

    In my experience it's about 6-8 hours. It depends on what your doing with it really.

    DS uses both screens [​IMG] . That may very well be the difference [​IMG]

    i was just wondering, does the new 1.5 crystal engine thingy work with it? (the new gba movie conversion software)
    i can see that the 1.3 one works... and can u update it with the E-whatever thingys?

    i dunno if all that made sense, but if someone made any sense out of that, could u please tell me?

    nope movie player that is built for Supercard can NOT go beyond e13 firmware update, also it will not play software ver 1.5 converted movies bcoz it will NOT be able to run any movies converted beyond software ver 1.3.

    hope that helps.

    plz feel free ask if u got any questions

    This has been discussed on passme forum but I believe not because you have to boot the supercard into GBA mode in order to select games. There would have to be a firmware update to support passme.
