    im not sure if this topic already exists. I tryed searching and couldn't find anything, but i was curious, how did you stumble upon this site?
    me, i got a flashcart about 4 years ago, and i was a newb, did a lot of research on the computer and found this, i didn't register right away, but after i finally decided to.

    Actually, I used my eyes and saw it. That's how I found it.

    There's probably like 69 threads like this.

    However, I found it on a search for ROMs.

    I needed help with setting up my EZ 3-in-1, found a YouTube video with help setting it up, the guy referenced GBATemp. Now I visit it daily.

    A couple of years ago I got a Game n Watch and wanted to play roms on it, so I googled that and found a thread on GBAtemp, which informed me that it was impossible. So I looked through the threads and found out about emulators for the DS and just stalked the site for a few years till the M3 Real was released. Then stalked to site more for the updates.
    One faithful day in September of 09, 3 games were dumped and guest weren't allowed on the site. So I joined to complain about the lack of AP patch.

    Used Google to find the best flashcart. Results brought up an Acekard. Knowing little of what the hell that meant, an Acekard forum popped up on a weird site named GBATemp in the search results. AKAIO was dominating at the time so an Acekard 2.1 (2i didn't exist yet) look pretty good. I lurked around & read the AKAIO wiki. Soon new people started to show up who needed info and were too lazy to read the Wiki. I gave the answers provided by the Wiki and went from there.

    Joined looking for Wii help.
    And to this day I never solved my problem.


    But I already had a DS and EDGE.

    I then came back looking to find a good flashcart.
    I chose the AK2i.

    And to this day I now own many flash kits.

    I visit the site daily.

    Yeah, that's my story.
