I have a Acekard 2.1 with AKAIO 1.4 Proper.
How do I play GBA games with the
EZ Flash 3in1?
the title says EX ._.
AKAIO has native support for the 3-in-1. Just put your GBA ROMS onto your microSD, and launch them regularly.
It's in the wiki: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php/AKAIO
greenwatch: sometimes we need to spell it out. i don't think half of the people know how to actually read.
So I have to turn on the backup save files
to save my games?
And can i play Kingdom Hearts CoM and Mother 3?
(Since they are like 30 MB)
if you don't enable "back up save at startup" you have to back up the save manually. i leave on to back up and to prompt. this way i never have to remember to back up and i have the choice to do it or not. mother3 works great with akaio and the 3in1. any rom 32MB or under will work in NOR.
Is there any game larger than 32 MB?
no commercial roms, some homebrew compilations tho. heritic ds is a ds.gba which runs great in nor using passme of the acekard. the version with the extra levels is 1 meg to large for the 3in1.
I needed a thread like this~! Thank for the help.
So do we just enable the save, and any game should auto save? Take Kingdom Hearts CoM, will it auto save?
Do you need a homebrew to use the rumble and RAM expansion?
And can you use cheats with GBA games?
Not sure about the homebrew, but sadly, you can't use cheats. The only flashcart that is able to use cheats is the M3Real. You will have to use the cheats on the Visual Boy Advance, transfer the save to your SD Card, and that is it. I would love to see the AceKard create an expansion then let it use cheats, but right now, I don't think it has any plans since it is working on the AceKard 2i.
i never tested my rumble because 1) it eats the battery and 2) it feels like crap. i have an official rumble pack i picked up with metroid prime pinball for $20. i think the code is in there for the rumble but it will not work on the 3in1+ as that code was never released. the ram expansion works on the old and plus kits now. i use opera all the time to check my gmail =). you can always patch your gba games before hand. they will require a fixed header to work in most cases after you alter the rom. as for saves, there are patching routines in the akaio gba code. they should work but if you find one that doesn't you could always ask for it to be supported (if possible). also there is gba exploader, it does mean you have to launch a homebrew before running your gba roms, but it is the best alternative.
It has a battery?!
How long does it last?
the battery is a 3 volt battery used to back up the nor saves. all real gba flash kits have them for the save files. my flash2advance is 9yrs old and working fine, but it never saw heavy use. i would say you could get 3+ yrs if you use it every day. i've seen a few mod projects where people crammed in a 3 volt battery from the pokemon game.
Technically, a couple of the video cartridges were 64MB, but as far as I know nobody ever figured out how to dump them.
To clarify, when Another World said that rumble eats up your battery, he meant that it eats up the NDS battery's charge time (not the 3-in-1 battery, which is only used to store save data).
I tried Mother 3 and the translation team screen was messed
up. And it did not allow me to coninue after that.
my patched mother 3 works perfectly.
Never mind I got it working.
I had to go to the main DS menu and choose it from there.
