    Yes. The GBA compatibility is terrible. The EFA/Elink aren't perfect, but in my opinion are much better for advance games.

    The SC compatibility list is below.

    Thanks for the response. I might consider getting an EZ Flash instead. Would the EZ Flash IV be good? (I don't intend on getting an M3 Perfect cos of the price)

    I don't like the EZ IV at all. Thought it was very buggy, and lacking in features. If you're looking for a cheap dedicated slot 2 cart, I would definitely go with the Elink. Good compatibility and now has RTS.

    DSDatabase has a good review on it.

    Really? I'm about to buy the EZ4 now. I'm wrestling between that and the ELink now. My main problem with the ELink is the amount of memory it has...

    I've read everywhere that the EZ4 is pretty good. Does ELink have RTC as well?

    I believe the Elink does not have RTC.

    And yeah, the EZIV has good GBA compatibility, but it has too many other problems. This is just my opinion though(so don't let it prevent you from buying one, you might end up really liking it). Some people love the cart and some don't.

    I'm picking me up an Elink just for the heck of it. The amount of memory doesn't really bother me. It's still enough to fit quite a few games on it.

    I've decided to get the ELink. Thanks for the link, it really helped. I was quite deterred from the shipping cost from gameyeeeah so instead I just got an ELink from DX to make things easier [​IMG]

    Good choice, I have an Elink and it works like a beauty. I just hate the software for it. It took me forever to set it up.

    All your games are running at full speed neschn? I just a post in a thread where some dude some games weren't running at full. But everyone else I talked to said the cart has full speed compatibility.

    Yeah, my games work fine. No slowdowns at all.

    I figured. Everyone else with an Elink said everything ran at full speed.

    Thanks.

    While I'm waiting for my ELink to come in the mail... does this have some inbuilt GB/GBC and NES emulator? That sounds abso-f***in'-lutely awesome. Oh and can you recommend me some good SNES emulators?

    If the Elink is for the GBA, then you've got two options: SNES Advance and Snezziboy. I'll copy and paste a post I made on another forum:
    EDIT: Obviously you can ignore the part about patching with the Supercard patcher.

    My personal preference is Snezziboy since it scales the screen for you and gives you more options to make the game look better (plus you can change the graphical settings in-game, which you can't do in SNES Advance), but the choice is yours.

    Yes, the Elink software comes with an NES Emulator and a GB/GBC Emulator.
