Is there a "real" good GBC Flashcard out there ? The only ones I know are somehow crappy, you can only put 2 roms on it and change buttons or whatever. I'm searching like an acekard, only for the GBC

I dont care if it has internal usb or a sd card or whatever. i only want one that works with the gbc, you can put as many roms on it as you want and it doesn't lurke out of the gbc. Hope everyone understands what I mean and someone can help me

I've got a Bung Dr64 for my GBC, unfortunately it's not as user friendly as modern day DS carts. USB and SD weren't really established standards when the GBC was around. You had to connect the cart to your PC via a reader and parallel cable, then use software to flash the 64mb (8 megabytes) internal memory with the game you wanted to play. If you wanted multiple games, you'd have to use a programme to create a 'multicart' basically and put them all into one rom. When you wanted to add a game, you'd have to back up your saves, make a new multi rom and copy the whole thing over again.

I'm not sure if anyone's made a more modern GBC cart, using more upto date and user friendly technologies, but it may be easier for you to use a DS based emulator, like Goomba.

The old days with bung no firmware updates needed and hardly any homebrew if any don't remember. I suppose there were lawsuits but bung changed names or something either way when I think about it the scene has changed making it easier for people but harder on companies....

When I think about maybe you can purchase one of those old smart buy's or GB xchangers.

I'm going to try looking for a site where you can purchase.

It's the same one Bluestar mentioned.
They are 64 megaBIT carts, so 8mb each.
You can fit a lot of GBC games on each.
You will need a cable to connect to your parallel port on your PC though, something like this...

Yep, like BlueStar says - "If you wanted multiple games, you'd have to use a programme to create a 'multicart' basically and put them all into one rom."
